Another TV talent contest is on the horizon, this one featuring members of the Jackson family. "Pop Dynasty" is the working title for a contest aimed at finding a family of singers a la the Jacksons, a CBS spokesman said. Jermaine, Tito and LaToya Jackson -- but not Michael or Janet, the most famous Jacksons -- will serve as judges. Details of the show are being worked out, and the network hasn't settled on an airdate.

An Australian variety show host has apologized for a skit in which singers parodying the Jackson Five performed in blackface. American singer and actor Harry Connick Jr., who was serving as a guest judge on Wednesday night's "Hey Hey It's Saturday," was visibly shocked by the skit, in which four men with afro wigs and blackface sang and danced behind a Michael Jackson impersonator wearing white makeup. Connick gave the performance a zero score and told them that if it had been done in the United States, it would have been pulled off the air. Host Daryl Somers apologized to Connick at the end of the live show.

When the four brothers walked into the second-floor hospital recreation room Wednesday afternoon, 10-year-old Jessy Turner's eyes grew wide and her ponytailed friends' mouths dropped open. It was the Jacksons. You know, the Jackson Five, minus Michael. To a generation that grew up listening to "A-B-C, Easy as 1-2-3," the lack of the most famous brother would have been noticeable.

"The Jacksons--An American Dream" is that rare television biography that sings, though its tune is frequently downbeat. It's a rocking, pulsating, gyrating, bewitching five hours that resonate the angry rhythms behind the joyous music of a dysfunctional family that produced one of the most electrifying entertainers of our time. As most everyone knows, the Jackson Five was ultimately supplanted by the even more glittering and famous Jackson One.

In a dark and dingy old elementary school auditorium, a pop star is being born. Make that reborn, because thanks to the makers of the ABC miniseries "The Jacksons: An American Dream," we've been transported back to 1965 to a PTA meeting in Gary, Ind. A tiny Michael Jackson stands alone and nearly motionless on a school stage, singing his 6-year-old soul out. His angelic face is turned to the heavens, his arms and clenched fists rising slowly at his sides like little wings.
