"I like the lady, but this is ridiculous," she said. Hundreds of fans stood in line, while inside the park another segment was being taped.

Sally Jessy Raphael has learned to live with the question: Is she upset that talk-show competitors such as Oprah Winfrey are far better known? "Oh, gosh, no. I don't feel bad," maintains Raphael. "I'm grateful to be where I am." It would be only human, of course, if she really felt otherwise. Last year, in a TV Guide interview, her husband was quoted as saying that the Oprah phenomenon was discussed "ad nauseam." But Raphael simply and diplomatically said the other day, "Oprah is magic."

For the first time in ages, there was something truly engrossing and entertaining on Thursday evenings for viewers with an IQ quotient above the wattage of a small appliance bulb--"Homicide: Life on the Street" (NBC). Instead of following the cliches of typical cop shows, this superb program with its incredible cast took on the exploration of the whys found in the human mind. If the powers at NBC don't give this series longer than four episodes, they have bricks where their brains should be. Kathryn Caro, San Diego Kid Shows, Adult Commercials How wonderful to find family entertainment promoted.

Oh, my. What's a poor talk show host to do? It's always something. Take Sally Jessy (There's Nothing She Won't Do for Ratings) Raphael, for example. Imagine her dilemma. On July 13, the first day of the Democratic National Convention, a public relations firm faxed her office a release about a woman (not Gennifer Flowers) claiming to have had an affair with Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton, who on Thursday was named the party's presidential nominee.

The final episode of "Sun Up San Diego," which aired Friday, was much like the thousands of episodes that preceded it. The San Diego Zoo brought animals. Co-host Kathi Diamant smiled constantly, hugging members of the studio audience. Her partner, Jerry G. Bishop, sang his own version of "Yesterday." Natasha Josefewitz read a poem. Above all, though, the show had the warmth and relaxed atmosphere that has symbolized "Sun Up" for 30 years.

"This is crazy! Why aren't these people in jail?" Joan Rivers is incredulous. She is outraged. And no wonder. She has just heard three divorced parents charge on her syndicated talk show that their young children had been sexually abused while in the court-ordered custody of the other parent. Each has told Rivers a similar story of a separate cold, indifferent judge who had ignored or rejected the evidence presented by the "good" parent and perpetuated a child's stay with the "bad" parent.
