It's a wake-up call — and a lot of companies have already answered. "This time next year, if you're not in Hispanic media, you're going to want badly to get in," said Don Browne, president of Telemundo.

No doubt the 11-part series, with its astonishingly intimate footage of A-Z species engaged in every sort of behavior, will play well on any screen. But its color, scope, detail and gorgeousness cry out for a home theater situation, one of those screens so big you can watch it from the street.]]> <![CDATA[Neil Patrick Harris suits up]]> <![CDATA[Fox News yanks Sean Hannity from Cincinnati Tea Party rally he was set to star in]]> <![CDATA[10 things to love about 'Mad Men']]> With its melancholy, mesmerizing third season coming out on DVD this Tuesday, I spent a recent weekend re-watching "Mad Men." The series, as its fans know, is set in a fictional Madison Avenue ad agency called Sterling Cooper (for its founders, Roger Sterling and Bertram Cooper); with the current story unfolding in 1963. Here are 10 of my favorite things about the show, created by Matthew Weiner, which will return to AMC this summer for its fourth season.]]> <![CDATA[The forgotten 'Survivor': Vecepia would like another shot at reality show]]> When the current season of "Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains" launched, its cast featured nine contestants making their third appearance on the popular reality show. But nowhere to be found was Vecepia Robinson. In fact, Robinson, who earned a niche in reality TV history as the show's first black winner in 2002, never has returned to "Survivor" since capturing the $1 million prize in the Season 4 Marquesas edition. When producers initially sent out their wide casting net for "Heroes vs. Villains," the Hayward resident didn't get an invite. Not even a casual inquiry.]]> <![CDATA['Monk' role has been a dream job for Traylor Howard]]> HOLLYWOOD — You'd never know by watching the cast and crew of USA's whodunit, Monk, that its days are sadly numbered.

Now those body issues have led her where so many celebrities go in the hopes of remaking themselves for the public: reality TV. It's there that Alley said she discovered what her everyday life looked like from the outside. "When I see the footage, I'm shocked. I see myself playing with my lemurs, and then I see footage of the stuff around my house ... it does look a little Alice in Wonderland-ish. Apparently, I am very eccentric. I had no idea."]]> <![CDATA[Saints' Super Bowl win nips 'MASH' finale for most-watched show ever]]> <![CDATA[Joe Mazzello mans up for HBO war series 'The Pacific']]> PASADENA, Calif. — At 26, actor Joe Mazzello is already a 20-year veteran. But he's not like most child actors who grow up on crafts services, private tutors and limos at their service. "I think all of it has to do with parenting and keeping your kid grounded, keeping them in the real world and don't let them get caught up in it," the slender Mazzello says, seated on the sunny balcony of a hotel here.]]> <![CDATA[New episodes of 'Southland,' premiering Tuesday on TNT]]> <![CDATA[Grading TV's buzz-worthy shows]]> If I were the only TV viewer in the world, the Nielsen ratings would look a lot different.
