Valerie Harper is positively radiant these days. There's a sparkle in her eyes and a genuine warmth in her smile. Why not? She's defied the odds. Early last year, Harper was told she had three months to live. Harper, a non-smoker who had a cancerous tumor removed from her lung in 2009, has a rare form of lung cancer that had spread to areas around her brain.  "I was supposed to be dead a year ago," said Harper, 74. "We are all terminal, let's face it.  I did the shock and grief.

Is Hallmark Channel already divorcing "The Good Wife?" The cable network, which acquired reruns of the critically acclaimed CBS drama last year, has yanked the show from its schedule after just a few weeks. According to Nielsen, the repeats were averaging just 331,000 viewers.  Intially, Hallmark was airing four episodes of "The Good Wife" in prime time. Then it scaled back to just two episodes. Now Hallmark is airing "The Waltons" and "Frasier. " A Hallmark Channel spokeswoman said the network still believes in the show "whole-heartedly" and "will find the right spot for it very soon.

  Two of the NBA's marquee stars didn't play when the Clippers played host to the Lakers at Staples Center on Friday night, but that didn't stop Blake Griffin from playing a starring role for his team and J.J. Redick from returning with aplomb. And it didn't prevent the Clippers from administering a franchise-record 123-87 beat-down of the Lakers in the arena both teams share, and in a city where some want to make this out to be a rivalry. The 36-point victory margin was the Clippers' largest ever against the Lakers, topping a 125-94 victory in 1992 at the Sports Arena, then the Clippers' home.

SANA, Yemen -- In a strike that bore the hallmarks of Al Qaeda, assailants in military uniforms staged a brazen daytime assault Thursday on Yemen's defense ministry, setting off a daylong battle that killed at least four dozen people and left scores injured, with some foreigners believed to be among the dead. The attack, which terrorized residents of a crowded district in the capital's old city , began with a thunderous car-bomb blast at the compound's gate, and a separate push by fighters on foot and armed with assault weapons.

A religious parable wrapped in a holiday gift basket featuring Susan Boyle, "The Christmas Candle" seems destined to be a Hallmark movie of the week. But in spite of the hammy histrionics requisite for the genre, it is not at all a turkey. Set in the 19th century, the film stars Hans Matheson of "The Tudors" as David Richmond, who left the pulpit for the Salvation Army after losing his religion. The village of Gladbury comes calling for him to fill the opening for vicar in its parish.

With Halloween now history, businesses are revving up the Christmas shopping season, and Hallmark is getting off to a rocky start. The greetings and gift giant apologized Thursday for one of its intended-to-be-jolly creations: An ornament shaped like an ugly Christmas sweater, adorned with the words, "Don we now our FUN apparel. " That's an allusion to the line from "Deck the Halls": "Don we now our gay apparel. " But gay doesn't mean what it did in the 19th century, when the carol's words were written.

A Hallmark ornament that reads "Don we now our FUN apparel!" has some people fuming. By substituting the Christmas carol lyric from "gay apparel" to "fun apparel" on the sweater-shaped ornament, the greeting card company stirred up a holiday storm. "Pathetic" and "Shame on you" were among the negative responses on the company Facebook page.  In defending itself, Hallmark pointed out that the lyrics for "Deck the Halls" were translated from the Gaelic way back when.  So the "gay" of the 1800s isn't the "gay" of 2013.  Such "multiple meanings," the company said in a statement, "could leave our intent open to misinterpretation.

Watch out, "Puppy Bowl," there's a new cuddly show vying for the eyeballs of animal loving sports fans on Super Bowl Sunday. It's Hallmark Channel's "Kitten Bowl," hosted by Howard Stern's wife, Beth Stern, and featuring John Sterling, the official radio voice of the New York Yankees, as announcer. Herding kittens isn't easy, as anyone who ever tried to corral a fluffy group of newborns in a bathroom, knows. So it'll be interesting to see just how the show's producers manage to get the little tigers to play ball inside Kitten Stadium.
