There's a home for fortysomething actresses: It's called TV. Marg Helgenberger has thrived there for the last seven seasons on "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," in which she plays the Vegas forensic night cop, single mom and former exotic dancer Catherine Willows. Long-term success has allowed Helgenberger to fit movies in on hiatus, such as "Mr. Brooks," which opened Friday. But she knows where her bread is buttered. "A lot of women watch TV," she says.

Amajor public health campaign has been launched to assist the 9 million American women with stress urinary incontinence. The message: There is medical treatment. The "Life Without Limits" campaign is sponsored by the American Medical Women's Assn. and is being publicized by actress Marg Helgenberger. The idea is to de-stigmatize a problem that affects many women after age 35. Surveys show that more than 60% of women with the problem have never spoken to their doctors about it. Stress urinary incontinence can be treated in 85% to 90% of all cases.

On a night when there was no dominant winner, the talk backstage at the Emmy Awards in Pasadena Sunday was narrowly focused on the individuals bestowed with the statuettes. Those who trekked back to meet the press--not everyone did--were happy but not always expansive. One of the happiest was Ted Danson. Veteran loser Danson, finally a winner after eight previous Emmy nominations, said that it felt good to be recognized finally for his work on "Cheers."
