I stayed home Thursday to watch the Simpson murder trial on television, not for the pictures and words as much as to check out something called interactive TV. It's a dialogue between the viewers and the anchor, the hottest thing on the amorphous road called the information superhighway where people communicate, share opinions and even fall in love. The superhighway and its various side roads are the linchpin of House Speaker Newt Gingrich's conservative new world.

Yoo hoo, Lindsay: Look what Mom's up to now. Dina Lohan will star in her own reality show on E! this summer, the network has confirmed. In "Living Lohan," Dina will share the spotlight with daughter Ali, 14. The unscripted show begins shooting in the Lohans' hometown of Merrick, N.Y., in about two weeks. Shooting also will take place in Las Vegas, where Dina, Ali and other members of the Lohan clan (but not, as of now, Lindsay) will relocate to begin production on a possible album for Maloof Productions, one of the show's backers.

The minority owners of E Entertainment Television have triggered a legal clause that would allow them to buy the successful channel from majority owner Time Warner early next year. The four minority owners of E last month triggered a so-called Texas shotgun provision in the 1990 partnership agreement, forcing Time Warner, which owns 58% of the cable channel, to place a value on the network by early December.

Fox canceled it last month, but "The Simple Life" isn't dead yet. E! Entertainment Television said Monday it has ordered 10 new episodes of the unscripted series to air next spring -- except that this time around, stars Nicole Richie and Paris Hilton won't appear together. The former friends had a falling out earlier this year, and that was one of the reasons Fox opted not to renew the show for a fourth season. But E!

The rumors of Howard Stern's imminent demise from E! Entertainment Television because of Disney's financial investment in the cable channel have been greatly exaggerated--at least for the time being. Even though shock-jock Stern has been saying on his nationally syndicated radio show this week that the teaming of the Walt Disney Co. and Comcast Corp. to purchase the majority stake in E! Entertainment might mean the end of his risque TV show, executives insist that Stern may be spared.

One week after slashing half the staff of its 4-month-old proprietary Entertainment Asylum site, America Online is set to announce a partnership with rival entertainment site E! Online. As part of the deal, set to be announced today, Los Angeles-based E! agrees to expand coverage of the online medium on its E! Entertainment Television cable channel. E! becomes an "anchor tenant" on AOL; E! will have a customized "welcome mat" on AOL, which links to E!'s Web site.

Ryan Seacrest's new year is looking good so far. The "American Idol" host and KIIS-FM disc jockey signed a deal with E! Entertainment Television that includes producing and hosting the channel's red-carpet awards coverage. Seacrest, who joined Dick Clark for ABC's "New Year's Rockin' Eve" on Saturday and has called Clark a role model, appears to be emulating the veteran producer with the three-year E! contract announced Tuesday. Seacrest will be executive producer and co-host of E!'

Entertainment Television and satellite company British Sky Broadcasting are joining to present daily re-creations of the trial, executives said Tuesday.

I was on vacation in Oregon, flipping channels in the hotel room, because that's what you do when you're on vacation. This was midmorning flipping, when there's an inherent danger of running into "The View." Instead, I landed on E! Entertainment Television. An actor I didn't recognize was showing off his house. It was no manse--in fact, I could have sworn I passed by some of his throw pillows recently on my way out of Crate & Barrel. The actor is on some soap opera; his name escapes me.

Successful cable channels often have turning points, lucky breaks or news events that shift the tide in the network's favor. MTV, in the early 1980s, had Michael Jackson's "Thriller" video. CNN received a big boost from the Gulf War. E! Entertainment Television had "Dances With Wolves." Promoting his 1990 directorial debut, Kevin Costner granted an interview with the network, which was then struggling for recognition. Although it may have been just another media minuet for Costner, for E!
