Chip Brown, the owner of a downtown Los Angeles cupcake shop, said he was reading a tribute to his late brother, former U.S. Commerce Secretary Ron Brown, when former President Bill Clinton pulled up outside the business Thursday. It was the 18th anniversary of his brother's death in a plane crash in Croatia on a trade mission. Clinton, as it happened, was stopping across the street at Baco Mercat for lunch with actors Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen. Brown walked across South Main Street, greeted Clinton and reminded him it was the anniversary of the crash.

"I've always been kind of a shill," says Ted Danson. "The guy out in front of the tent saying, 'Thank you so much for watching "Cheers," come on in and let me introduce you to the marine biologists who have something really important to tell you.'" The former Sam Malone might seem an unlikely environmental activist, but Ted Danson has quietly been advocating on behalf of our oceans for 25 years.

Well, it's official. At this stage in his career, there is nothing Ted Danson can't do. Including walk into an aging franchise, crash through its calcified conventions and deliver a whole new sort of genius investigator — one who isn't tortured or crazy, one who can ask his wary new team about local farmers markets with the same easy confidence that he uses to dress down a subordinate who thinks paperwork is beneath him.

Ted Danson strolled along Santa Monica Beach, a bit overdressed among the sneaker-and-sandal crowd in his crisp button-down and dark blazer draped elegantly over one shoulder. As he studied the horizon, an incognito Dave Chappelle caught his eye and Danson deftly sidestepped a clutch of oncoming tourists to present himself before the comedian. "How are you?" he asked, offering his hand and tilting that closely cropped snow-white head of his. "You are like a hero in my family." Chappelle, dressed for a jog, looked braced for Ashton Kutcher and the "Punk'd" crew.

It was early Sunday afternoon at the Futures for Children benefit and host Ted Danson, tall and rangy as a Texas cowboy, was standing in the entry of his Santa Fe-style home in Santa Monica Canyon, greeting guests and talking about his youth. How he grew up in Flagstaff, Ariz., where he hung out with Hopi and Navaho children, and how today his involvement with Futures for Children is "kind of a pay-back to my childhood." Suddenly a broad grin spread across his face and he began to laugh.

Suddenly, here is Ted Danson, back in our sitcom lives. Only this time he came in through the back door--on "Becker," a midseason replacement on CBS. Keeping "Becker" off the new fall lineup in favor of the since-canceled "Brian Benben Show" has turned out to be a canny piece of Monday night strategy by CBS.

On a night when there was no dominant winner, the talk backstage at the Emmy Awards in Pasadena Sunday was narrowly focused on the individuals bestowed with the statuettes. Those who trekked back to meet the press--not everyone did--were happy but not always expansive. One of the happiest was Ted Danson. Veteran loser Danson, finally a winner after eight previous Emmy nominations, said that it felt good to be recognized finally for his work on "Cheers."

The Brooklyn-based writer Jonathan Ames was in Southern California not long ago, not long before the third-season premiere of "Bored to Death," a lovely and good-hearted detective comedy about a Brooklyn-based writer named Jonathan Ames. Ames, who created and writes or co-writes every episode, had come west to appear on Craig Ferguson's talk show, where the two would discuss hair and masturbation. The writer is not shy about airing what for most people would remain hidden desires: "What's Not to Love?

The new Ted Danson comedy "Ink" is indeed going back to the drawing board, with CBS drafting another "Cheers" graduate, Rhea Perlman, to take its place at the prime-time bar. In a costly eleventh-hour move, CBS said Thursday that it will delay "Ink's" scheduled and heavily promoted premiere from Sept. 16 until Oct. 21 because the network and the stars were unsatisfied with initial episodes.
