After centuries of being linked to emperors, kindly old uncles and secret agents who talk into shoes, Max has reemerged as one of the coolest names you could possibly attach to a baby boy. Anyone who has a kid named Max, raise your hand. See, you could fill a ballpark. The state of cool hasn't been too much of a concern to 12-year-old Max Keeble (Alex D. Linz), a paperboy whose imagination exceeds his daring.

We can't believe we're talking about: NBC's "The Baby Borrowers." Social experiment or the worst idea for a reality show yet? Here, teen couples are forced to grow up quickly. They're given homes, full-time jobs -- and babies. Real ones. And you thought the parents of the tots on "Kid Nation" were bad. (Wednesday) You will probably talk about: "Hancock." But only because you will be puzzled by it.

The green goo will be flowing tonight at Nickelodeon's 21st Annual Kids' Choice Awards. Sort of a "mini-Oscars" in which kids vote on their favorites in film, music, sports and television, the raucous awards show always slimes the hip and the cool with cold green goo. Jack Black returns as host of the proceedings -- let's hope he brings several wardrobe changes for the slime attacks -- at UCLA's Pauley Pavilion.

Rest assured, the helpless, hapless squirrel-rat, Scrat, is back in the sequel "Ice Age: The Meltdown," which opens Friday. Scrat was initially created to bookend the original 2002 computer-animated hit, "Ice Age." But when he became an audience favorite in the film's trailer, directors Chris Wedge and Carlos Saldanha expanded his role. Scrat (voiced by Wedge) even starred in the Oscar-nominated spinoff short, "Gone Nutty." Now, in "The Meltdown," Scrat is integral to the plot.

It's remarkable, when you think about it, that young people manage to survive adolescence without permanent psychological damage. It's a time of so much confusion and frustration, of such unmediated unfairness and unfocused rage, that it's a tribute to the resilience of youth that most of us come through it more or less in one piece.
