Don't panic if you're watching Fox's New Year's Eve special and the screen goes black moments before host Carmen Electra finishes screaming "Happy New Year." There's nothing wrong with your TV. You're just caught in a brawl between two media giants. At issue are the fees that News Corp., Rupert Murdoch's sprawling media empire, is demanding that Time Warner Cable pay for transmitting its Fox stations -- including KTTV-TV Channel 11 and KCOP-TV Channel 13 in Los Angeles -- as well as cable networks such as FX, Fox Sports West and Prime Ticket.

I am hearing impaired and I want to know if the Mighty Ducks' games on KCAL-Channel 9 will be closed-captioned. And will Prime Ticket close-caption hockey games for deaf people who love to hear it? STEPHEN PAGE Santa Ana Editor's note: Prime Ticket will not close-caption Kings' or Ducks' games this season. KCAL is "seriously exploring" the possibility for its 20 Ducks ' games, but no decision has been made.

An advertising division of the Los Angeles Lakers does not have an agreement with Prime Ticket to broadcast the California Collegiate Athletic Assn. postseason tournament March 4 and may have misrepresented that fact to conference officials. Sportsworks, an arm of California Sports Inc., parent company of the Lakers, approached the conference in October for the right to package a broadcast of the men's and women's championship games.
