Buoyed by double-digit ratings gains in daytime, CBS said: "Let's make a deal. " The network determined that the price was right to renew its lineup of daytime programs, and Wednesday said that next season it would bring back "The Price is Right," "Let's Make a Deal," "The Young and the Restless," "The Bold and the Beautiful" and the daytime chatfest "The Talk. " CBS has boasted the top-rated slate of daytime programs for more than a quarter of a century, and this season has been no exception.  Heartening fans of the beleaguered soap opera genre , CBS' two surviving daytime dramas -- "The Young and the Restless" and "The Bold and the Beautiful" -- have seen sturdy ratings growth compared with the 2012-2013 TV season.

WASHINGTON -- Albert Pujols was so wired -- and so busy talking and texting friends around baseball -- after hitting his 500th career home run Tuesday night that the Angels slugger didn't get to sleep until about 4 a.m. and managed only three or four hours of sleep, at best. “Trust me, I was trying to sleep,” Pujols said before Wednesday night's series finale against the Washington Nationals. “I knew we had a game today. I'm a bad sleeper no matter what. So, it's not that I need an excuse.

NEW YORK - Mikhail Baryshnikov's earliest experience in the theater began when he was a child of just 4 or 5 in present-day Latvia, then a part of the Soviet Union. His mother, a Russian speaker unfamiliar with the local tongue, would drag along her young son to play interpreter. Now, after a career in dance, film and television, he's performing the title role in "Man in a Case," a multimedia adaptation of two short stories by Anton Chekhov running April 24 through May 10 at the Broad Stage in Santa Monica.

I have to add to your reviewer's passionate bravas for Judy Kaye in the touring production of "Sweeney Todd" now at the Ahmanson Theatre ["Tuneful Barbarism," by Charles McNulty, March 14]. She gives a performance that is really out of this world. I've seen many productions of "Sweeney," including the Broadway original, but I've never seen a Mrs. Lovett this complex. I cannot overstate how moved I was -- as was all of the upper mezzanine, including a restless bunch of high schoolers.

I have just returned from an intense three-week tour of Southeast Asia and I was fascinated by the incredible insight in James Fallows' article ("Boom Times in Bangkok," April 10). It should be required reading for Warren Christopher and others running the State Department. Asia is indeed in the dynamic phase of its historical evolution. Given its boiling, restless entrepreneurial energy, the next century will indeed be an Asian one. JAY P. COOPER Newport Beach

He wants to rap his way to the new prosperity being enjoyed by some -- although not all -- of his countrymen. His lyrics tell of his ambitions: "I'm a capitalist, never been on welfare I'm smart so we'll all get rich. Come with me man, make money, get you Hey, it's your call." "Young & Restless" follows Wang on his journey, popping in every year or so to gauge his progress.

"Time Stands Still," Donald Margulies' compelling if at times elusive drama, which opened Wednesday at the Geffen Playhouse, revolves around a photographer badly injured in Iraq and her reporter boyfriend, who's trying to establish a bit of normalcy with her as she recovers from her wounds. A work that appears at first to be in the mode of British playwright David Hare, one of those politically engaged offerings hashing out the thorny moral questions of the day, turns out to be more focused on the domestic psychology of characters deciding between personal stability and a larger sense of purposefulness.

THE official end of the notorious Cali cocaine cartel came late last year here with little more commotion than the rap of a judge's gavel. The Colombian drug lords Miguel Rodriguez Orejuela, 63, and Gilberto Rodriguez Orejuela, 67, entered guilty pleas and were ushered off to federal prison for the next 30 years -- no Miami Vice-like dramatics, no bodies riddled with gunfire in the manner of Medellin rival Pablo Escobar.

I hope Chick Hearn doesn't have cable in heaven. John C. Borrego Temecula :: How bad was it at Staples Center on Thursday night? It was so bad that that Justin Bieber pulled his pants up, so that he could make a quick getaway. It was so bad Magic Johnson ate more hot dogs than Joey Chestnut. It was so bad Jimmy Fallon wouldn't make jokes about it out of respect for the families. Marty Foster San Francisco :: As a thoroughbred trainer, Jim Buss had a winning percentage around 9%. If somebody doesn't do something quick, he's going to repeat that achievement with the Lakers.

Like sands through the hourglass, these are the days of Los Angeles sports lives. The landscape is brand-new. Steve Sarkisian is the new horizon, the new big story. Brett Hundley is the soon-to-be-biggest buzz. We now live at warp speed. Technology promotes it and we embrace it. Yesterday's news isn't just old news, it's ancient history. The hopes and dreams of Coach O, clung to by him and his backers even after Saturday night's 35-14 beatdown by UCLA, are blowing somewhere in the wind now. Ed Orgeron is to be commended for a mop-up job that would have made Mariano Rivera proud.

NARENDRA NAGAR, India - I am a dharma disaster, a chakra calamity. I cannot meditate. My inner hamster is a maniac, and my legs refuse to cross for that long. So when the saried woman with the serene kohled eyes tells me that I have a private meditation session scheduled, I inform her that I would prefer another herbal bundle massage - my third for the week. She laughs. "You are a vata dosha ," she says in her lilting Indian accent. "We know you do not like sitting still.

WASHINGTON - David Valadao, a soft-spoken California dairy farmer, was barely six months in Congress when he made a splash. He broke from fellow Republicans and voted against cutting off funding for an Obama administration program that stopped deporting young immigrants brought into the country illegally as children. "Obviously, I have to represent my constituents," said Valadao, whose Central Valley district is 71% Latino. Alan Lowenthal - once an influential committee chairman in Democratic-run Sacramento, now a freshman in a Republican-controlled House - showed his constituents that he could still deliver.

The night before had been unseasonably cold for late April, with a low near 20, but now the campus was basking in sunshine. Shirtless joggers bounded past pale co-eds stretched out on blankets, and leafless trees seemed to sprout green buds in a matter of hours, as in time-lapse photography. In a dark and cramped basement room in venerable Sorin Hall, a restless freshman football player slipped on a pair of shorts and boat shoes.

It was supposed to be a brief stop at the Primadonna casino, 43 miles south of Las Vegas, but one poker game led to another. By 3 a.m. May 25, 1997, Jeremy Strohmeyer and David Cash were tired of hanging around the arcade, waiting for David's dad. Bored, the two 18-year-olds decided to urinate on two coin-operated games. David chose Big Bertha, whose polka-dot dress flared when players hurled balls into her gaping red mouth. Jeremy selected a helicopter game. Then a wall socket.
