While most media attention has been focused this season on the Friday-night showdown between "Dallas" and "Miami Vice," another soap-opera ratings story has been unfolding quietly on Wednesday nights, where once-mighty "Dynasty" has been overtaken by born-again "Magnum, P.I." Helped by the new lead-in of "The New Mike Hammer," "Magnum" drew a larger audience than "Dynasty" in head-to-head competition last week, ratings from the A.C. Nielsen Co. showed Tuesday.

NEW YORK - On a soundstage in an industrial Brooklyn neighborhood, Tom Selleck sits at the head of a prop-heavy dinner table filled with three generations of actors. As a crew goes about its preparations, there's little wisdom that Selleck won't dispense: his March Madness pick (Duke, because "Coach K is a great guy, and his players graduate"), his aversion to gourmet vegetables, his favorite lines from "Airplane. " Then the cameras roll, and he's doling out nuggets all over again.

My congratulations and compliments to the "Magnum, P.I." staff and to CBS for bringing the public such an entertaining show. After all these years, the story lines are still fresh and interesting, and the actors are ever creative and unique with that special "Magnum" humor. Long may Magnum dodge the bill collectors and long may "Magnum, P.I." dodge cancellation! Alfred M. Davis, Los Angeles

Watching the season premiere of "Magnum, P.I." was like watching a brand new series. It was marvelous. The writing, editing and music were fantastic. I have been a Tom Selleck and "Magnum" fan for years. But the past couple of years, I stopped watching the show because the writing had gotten so bad. It was either too boring, too complicated or both. The premiere had humor, lightheartedness, emotions and caring. I am a "Magnum" fan again. Terra Lynn, Hollywood

The March 28 episode of "Magnum, P.I." was so very good. Nehemiah Persoff as the rabbi gave a perfect performance, as usual, and it was so good to see Magnum as an influence for good instead of his recent sorties into violence. Mrs. Herb Goldberg, North Hollywood

Large format bottles make an impressive entrance at the holiday table. What could be more festive than popping the cork on a magnum (the equivalent of two bottles) or a double magnum (four bottles) and pouring for the entire extended table? Usually, magnums and their bigger brothers are reserved for important wines that age a good while. The best Riojas are released with some age on them as a matter of principle, but large format bottles are still a relative rarity. That's why it's so exciting that the Rare Wine Co. , an online wine importer and retailer based in Sonoma County, has bought up a stash of 2001 CVNE (Compañía Vinícola del Norte de España)

While most crime series today rely on some sort of technical or psychological twist -- the wonders of forensics, the special knowledge of a reformed fake psychic or a good-guy serial killer, "Jesse Stone: Thin Ice," which debuts on Sunday, sticks with the fundamentals.

Kudos to Jack Mathews for his marvelous article ("Go Ahead, Make Your Allusion," Aug. 21). But, p-l-e-a-s-e! , Jack, don't wimpify Dirty Harry's piece by identifying it as a ".357 magnum." It's a .45 magnum, "the most powerful handgun in the world," as his screenwriters claim and as Dirty Harry loves to grit out to the goons in his "Make my day" speech. RUSS HALE La Mirada

If today's Rose Bowl comes down to long field goals, the edge will go to Texas senior Dusty Magnum, who is four for four from 50 yards and beyond, with a career best of 52. His Michigan counterpart, sophomore Garrett Rivas, has never had a field-goal attempt beyond 47 yards. "The kicking game is always important, especially in bowl games," said Magnum, a former walk-on who is third on the Longhorns' all-time scoring list with 350 points.
