NEW YORK -- For 11 seasons, Stephen Collins played Eric Camden, the father and small-town minister of the hit TV drama "7th Heaven," which apparently left an impression on viewers. "I find people are very polite to me, which is really sweet," Collins says. "They tend to be on their good behavior because they sort of do think that I'm kind of a minister."

STEPHEN COLLINS makes acting look effortless, whether he's playing the understanding father, the Rev. Eric Camden on the CW's long-running family drama "7th Heaven" or Diane Keaton's love interest, a sexy granddad named Joe, in the new romantic comedy "Because I Said So." But the boyishly handsome 59-year-old Collins says that when he started out in the business he was just clueless.

I wanted to thank you for such a nice article on Stephen Collins, as he really is a gem and I'm glad that he is getting some well-deserved publicity ["He's Having a Heavenly Time," Feb. 1]. I work with a local nonprofit youth arts organization and met Stephen several years ago when his daughter was a member. From Day One he was an enthusiastic supporter and our No. 1 fan. He spent many, many hours in volunteer efforts of all sorts -- and with his busy schedule I know this was not always easy to do, but he did it anyway.

The fate of NBC's offbeat (and low-rated) series "Tattinger's" became clear Monday, when the show's producers and the network announced that the hourlong "dramedy," starring Stephen Collins as the suave yet embattled owner-operator of a New York restaurant, will be shortened to a half-hour format and change its tone. Speculation had been rampant that the show, which has fared poorly in the weekly A. C. Nielsen audience ratings, would be canceled by NBC.

In "At HBO, the Bonfire of the Vanity Projects" (July 10), Paul Brownfield makes a good point that HBO may be suddenly over-branding itself. But "The Comeback" is a terrific show, with Lisa Kudrow doing extraordinary, funny, often heartbreaking work. "The Comeback" is so painfully truthful that it doesn't fit into any previous sitcom pattern, which may be why it's slow to catch on. Likewise, "Entourage," a way, way inside look at young Hollywood, has sensational writing, acting and directing that are hilariously on the mark.
