NEW YORK - "Even if you're little, you can do a lot" sings the spirited 5-year-old heroine of "Matilda, the Musical," the Broadway hit adapted from the children's classic by Roald Dahl. The lyrics are a message of self-empowerment for Matilda, a Dostoyevsky-reading prodigy neglected by her dim-witted, vulgar parents. For the four young actresses who share the role onstage, the words are a mantra for making it through the frenzied run-up to Sunday night's Tony Awards, where "Matilda" is nominated in 12 categories.

So it was with little tears and much fanfare that hunky actor Ingo Rademacher and Kym Johnson were deemed the next couple eliminated. Everyone could see this coming a mile away, including Ingo himself.

In 1982, Sarah Jessica Parker, who 16 years later would play Carrie Bradshaw on "Sex and the City," played a smart, suburban teenage outsider on Anne Beatts' paean to high school unpopularity, "Square Pegs. " And now Carrie Bradshaw is being played as a smart, suburban teenage outsider, in 1984, by AnnaSophia Robb, in a rather charming "Sex and the City" prequel, "The Carrie Diaries," premiering Monday on the CW. Apart from the hair (crinkly) and the height (short), Robb does not particularly resemble the young Parker, whom she is playing, in a sense, and whose features are delicate where Parker's are strong.

In "Deception," a new mystery serial premiering Monday on NBC, Megan Goode plays Joanna Locasta, a San Francisco police detective recruited by the FBI - by her ex-partner/ex-boyfriend (Laz Alonso), specifically - to go undercover among the family of her former best friend, the victim of a suspicious drug overdose. The family, in whose house Joanna grew up - her mother was their maid - is, of course, rich and powerful and ridiculously dysfunctional. Not only that, but also, in the words of Joanna's FBI handler and ex-boyfriend, "They've been under investigation for stock manipulation for the last nine years," suggesting that the family is very clever, or that the authorities are very distracted.
