GIANTS FAMILIES, It's probably not a secret, but I'll share it with you anyway. I believe that, despite the players' tears, I am the saddest person on the Giants this evening. I am not sad about our loss today; it was an honorable and exciting one. Coming from four runs down to tie the No. 1 team in our league is something to celebrate, even if they got us by one run in the end. I am only sad because losing means that we don't get to play any more games together this year.

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.

Horse racing is like a book that can't be judged by its cover. Saturday was a glorious day at Santa Anita, the kind that used to attract crowds of 30,000 in the heydays of the 1970s and '80s, before racing started to encourage fans to stay away by offering betting everywhere, including their living rooms. The mountains glimmered in the warm afternoon sun. "I called a friend in Kentucky and he said the temperature was 1 degree," said trainer Bob Baffert. "Look at this."

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.

Martin and his girlfriend, Kate, are in bed watching something on late-night TV that, judging by their shocked expressions, is not Jay Leno's monologue. It's obviously appalling, terrifying, too scary even to define. Kate: "Oh, this is disgusting! Tell me when it's over." Martin: "Oh, my God!" Is it Hannibal Lecter dining on human entrails? No, something infinitely more startling. Cut to the TV screen, where a humping, pumping, grunting, grinding-in-unison nude couple are making hot, noisy love.

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.

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").

So far, the stars of the Kentucky Derby prep season are a horse named after a grapefruit and a trainer who is a lovable fruitcake. Jockey Alex Solis rode The Pamplemousse around Santa Anita's mile-and-an-eighth course Saturday like a guy driving to the grocery store at midnight. Nobody in front, nobody to the side. No sweat. He won the $200,000 Grade III Sham Stakes by six lengths and it appeared as if The Pamplemousse wanted to go around again.
