"We were writing a story for Chris Meloni's character's mother, and she was going to be bipolar. Immediately we thought Ellen Burstyn. " So began Neal Baer's wooing of the Oscar-winning Burstyn to the set of "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. " "We had lunch with her," he continues, "and it was kind of a date. It's a big deal to have them trust you. We told her about the part, and I said, 'You'll be on a beach and flip out,' and she said, 'Down and dirty?' and I said, 'As down and dirty as you like.'" "I'd never had anybody say they wanted to write a script for me," Burstyn recalls.

Andy Griffith, who died on Tuesday at age 86, never strayed far from his native North Carolina. He grew up there and returned there in his later years, but he's most closely identified with a place in North Carolina that never existed. "The Andy Griffith Show," which aired on CBS from 1960 to 1968, was set in the fictional town of Mayberry, N.C., and starred Griffith as Sheriff Andy Taylor. (The series was actually shot in Los Angeles.) Besides making stars of Don Knotts and young Ron Howard, the series was also a huge ratings hit and featured a distinctive theme song forever associated with Griffith.

Last month, CBS celebrated four straight years--208 consecutive weeks--as the No. 1 network in daytime television ratings, and on Wednesday the celebration continued when the 20th annual Daytime Emmy Awards were announced. As has become its habit in recent years, CBS pulled in by far the most nominations overall with 74. PBS received 41, followed by ABC with 39, NBC with 18 and Fox with eight.
"All My Children" was named best drama series and picked up five other trophies to emerge as the most honored program at the 25th annual Daytime Emmy Awards. It was the fifth year in a row that an ABC program has won as best soap opera, following three consecutive wins for "General Hospital" and "All My Children's" previous victory in 1994. In ceremonies May 9 and Friday night, ABC walked away with 14 Emmys, compared to nine for daytime ratings leader CBS and one for NBC.
