Something was missing at this year's Orchids & Onions program, the People's Choice awards of local design. Maybe it was people. Fewer than 800 seats in the 3,000-seat Civic Theatre were occupied last Thursday night, and the cavernous space seemed empty. In past years, 1,200 have attended. Or maybe it was just the salty spray that the event, now 16 years old, has thrown off in past years.

Both the Golden Globes and the People's Choice Awards drew record low audiences after being forced to change their formats because of the Writers Guild of America strike, according to figures released Tuesday by Nielsen Media Research.

AS she started her march down the media-lined carpet at the 32nd annual People's Choice Awards at the Shrine Auditorium on Tuesday evening, Cobie Smulders, star of TV's "How I Met Your Mother," looked radiant in an aqua gown. A publicist guided her to the first TV camera crew, where she was asked about her dress. She explained that she had hurt her ankle and thus needed a floor-length dress to hide the injury. She found this one and thought, "This feels great." Next reporter, same question.

ABC's "Desperate Housewives" continued to be Sunday's most-watched series with an average of 25.2 million viewers.

I read with great interest Susan King's article "Rethinking the Oscar Telecast" (Nov. 28). Having produced two Oscar telecasts (including the legendary one in which Charlie Chaplin appeared), 11 Emmy Awards and 14 People's Choice Awards and having created the Prime Time Golden Globe Awards and many other award-type specials, I have some observations garnered from years of experience. Here are some of them: Be careful of changes in the show structure. The ratings prove that the audience is pleased with what they are seeing.
