The Museum of Contemporary Art, revealed to be in dire financial straits late last year, said Thursday that the downtown L.A. museum had raised nearly $60 million since December, hailing the figure as an indication of a turnaround at the institution. The fundraising total includes December's $30-million pledge from the Broad Foundation, $16.4 million in trustee gifts, $3 million from individual patrons, $6.7 million from the museum's annual fund and $3.8 in trustee dues. MOCA also has announced the election of four trustees, two newly appointed and two returning.

A Museum of Contemporary Art trustee who left the board last year amid revelations of the museum's dire financial problems said that his confidence in the leadership of philanthropist Eli Broad, whose Broad Foundation offered the museum a bailout gift of $30 million in December, has led to his decision to rejoin the board. On Thursday the museum announced it has raised nearly $60 million, including Broad's gift, since December. Included in that announcement was news that former music industry executive Gilbert B. Friesen and art collector and restaurateur Peter Morton, co-founder of the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, have rejoined the board.

Even people who don't pay much attention to television probably felt a twinge upon hearing that Brandon Tartikoff had died--a sense of recognition not usually afforded to guys who wear suits and decide on which night to schedule sitcoms. Tartikoff, who died Wednesday of complications related to treatment for Hodgkin's disease at the age of 48, was one of those rare executives who put the "show" well ahead of the "business," never forgetting that TV's prime directive is to entertain.

You know you're being groomed as the star of your own sitcom when: A) You lose 30 pounds in two weeks in a frantic attempt to look sexier. B) The network matches you up with writers who are perfectly nice guys but don't understand you creatively. C) You find yourself on a big promotional campaign at Disney World, standing under a giant mural of yourself, blitzed on diet pills, wondering what has become of your life. Margaret Cho would answer D, "all of the above." All of the above and then some.

Back-biting. Corporate in-fighting. Pill-popping. Narcissism, avarice, hypocrisy, lack of principle and nastiness, amid a climate of constant panic. If this is the way show business folk view themselves, no wonder the rest of the country has such a high opinion of Hollywood.
