Perhaps it's merely an example of refusing to see the glass as anything but half full, or maybe it's a little white lie to save face and justify the fact that they spend far more time together than they do with their wives. But Jeff Greenstein and Jeff Strauss insist that they are still happy, despite having gone almost overnight from writing one of the hottest shows on TV to one of the coldest.

The medical drama "ER," already leading in the nominations for this year's Emmy Awards, picked up three more Monday when the finalists in six additional categories were unveiled by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. Nominations in these categories had been withheld when the rest of the 47th annual nighttime Emmy nominees were announced July 20 because each had multiple ties that had to be resolved through runoff balloting.

The writing staff of TV's "Will & Grace" didn't make the cut. Fifty-one more California wordsmiths ended up on the scrapheap too, despite resumes gilded with prestigious awards, fellowships and publications. In the end, a Beat Generation standout, a bilingual chronicler of Chicano life and a multimedia Renaissance man emerged Wednesday as the finalists to become California's first formally chosen poet laureate. Now it falls to Gov.

For Hollywood studios angling to cash in on the runaway success of television comedies such as "Seinfeld" and "Home Improvement," the stakes just got higher--again. In an effort to shore up its anemic comedy stable--and perhaps help the ratings of its sister network--Twentieth Century Fox Television is paying what sources estimate is in the neighborhood of $60 million this week to lock in long-term deals with a handful of comedy writer-producers.

While visiting Israel last year, Beverlywood resident Robert Bain decided to move to Tel Aviv with his wife and four young sons this summer. But in recent months, the ponytailed business investor has been flooded with a cascade of emotions about his decision: elation over the tentative peace accord with the Palestinians, and sorrow over acts of violence, including the massacre of 48 Palestinians in a Hebron mosque by an American Jewish settler.

From time to time, Jennifer Bracamontes recognizes a Latino on prime-time television. But she has to look hard. She looks past the glitzy main characters, the heroes and funny guys. She finds them lower on television's totem pole. "In some cases you, like, notice that the only person of color was sweeping leaves on the street," said Bracamontes, a 17-year-old Harvard University-bound senior who attends Garfield High School in Los Angeles. "It's noticeable on certain shows."

Two new Fox comedy series will be flying the friendly skies--or, more exactly, the "Friends" sky--into catchy theme song territory. "The Crew" and "Partners" are among a number of coming prime-time imitations of the hit NBC sitcom "Friends." But the shows' producers have taken a further step in trying to attract "Friends"-sized audiences: They have commissioned bouncy rock theme songs that they hope will turn into radio hits, just like the theme from you-know-what.

So-so "Partners" and highly promising "Ned and Stacey" are the two comedies premiering on Fox tonight. And CBS introduces "Bless This House," an above-average sitcom starring Andrew (no more Dice) Clay. The threesome comedy "Partners" is especially disappointing given the track record ("Dream On," "Friends") of its executive-producer/creators, Jeff Greenstein and Jeff Strauss, and its director, James Burrows ("Cheers," "Taxi").
