Many homosexuals took it personally when she declared on the air that they were "deviants" and "biological errors." When she later tried to backtrack, saying she used those definitions "in a clinical context," she made gays and lesbians sound like microbes under glass. Left to her own devices, in other words, Dr. Laura inevitably impales herself on her own spiked-blather. As when she informed CNN's Larry King recently that it's "criminal and immoral" for a woman to intentionally bring a child into the world "with no father." Just criminal? Just immoral? Why not just go ahead and call these single mothers Satanic? Or deviant? Or biologically errant? Every time I tune in Mistress Laura, she's in dominatrix mode, lecturing or cutting off in mid-sentence a pathetic caller (probably wearing handcuffs and a leather hood) who later ends up thanking her for receiving the whipping she administers. No question, she is a piece of work. Which is no reason, however, to bar her from the airwaves, one of the few places on the planet where being deviant and biologically errant can land you an acre in Bel-Air. Not that her fellow Americans aren't entitled to peacefully protest her opinions by pressuring sponsors, stations and Paramount to shun her.

Yet there is something unsavory and abortive about doing it here, as if Dr. Laura (who doesn't advocate mayhem or violence) were not entitled to her views, however creepy. And the public were not entitled to hear them. In fact, Dr. Laura and TV are perfect for each other. Tell me, please, if she can be worse than Sally Jessy Raphael, who specializes in piously comforting troubled kids by exposing their neuroses and dysfunctions to strangers watching from their homes. Or Jenny Jones, who fronts the only daytime talk show that can boast of a fatality. Or Jerry Springer and his underclass of chair-swinging freaks. Or Ricki Lake, who lowers your IQ just by osmosis. I found Ricki while channel-hopping the other day and was amazed to discover that she was still on the air, uninhibited by her own dimness and the cobwebs of decadence tightening around her like a corset. I thought she went out with Howdy Doody. So I say Dr. Laura belongs in this bedlam, which can always accommodate another inmate. NOW's Millar doesn't agree. Each time Cavuto lobbed her a question, she responded as if dodging a bean ball.

Howard Stern is one, I'm thinking about then. So is Jerry Falwell. So why target Dr. Laura? Cavuto asked. Because, said Millar, she has been "particularly offensive. She hasn't apologized." Oh. She added that Dr. Laura's views on gays and lesbians "aren't supported by mental health associations in any way." Oh. "Someone has the power to listen to her or not listen to her, right?" Cavuto asked. "Right," Millar responded. "And if I find her offensive, I don't have to watch her this fall, right?" he asked. "That's true," she replied. But Dr. Laura "doesn't have a constitutional right to have a television show," Millar added a bit later. This was getting nowhere, with Cavuto ultimately wondering "where you draw the line" governing who should and should not be on the air, and Millar unable to say. Compare the cases, meanwhile, of Dr. Laura and another public orator who's having a bad year, Adanta Braves pitcher John Rocker. He intimates some of the same things about gays and lesbians while taking swipes at various groups in Sports Illustrated, and he's censured and berated for weeks by sports-casting's emerging class of moral cops. And then he's ultimately banished to the minor leagues for his behavior (although the team insists his demotion Monday was unrelated to his most recent outburst, a nose-to-nose with the author of the magazine article that initially got him in trouble). Yet Dr. Laura says it, and she gets a TV show. I know, it hurts. It stinks. It's not fair. But it's America. Get over it. Howard Rosenberg's column appears Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

Don't leave your seat. Whether you are a history-of-piano innocent or a longtime keyboard connoisseur, you do not want to miss any part of this thoroughly engrossing, endlessly delightful, wondrously informative show, the accomplishment of director Donald Sturrock, who co-wrote it with Christian Labrande. The documentary's high points are its cameo performances. In all, 18 major pianists of the 20th century are featured, among them Sviastoslav Richter, Artur Rubinstein, Glenn Gould, Myra Hess, Alfred Cortot and Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli, and that's a quick skim. Without a doubt, for one listener, the peaks here are Josef Hof-mann's magisterial, musically heart-stopping yet tonally edgeless playing of Rachmaninoff's once-ubiquitous C-sharp minor Prelude; Gyorgy Cziffra's immaculate, appallingly fleet, blurringly virtuosic romp through Liszt's "Grand Galop Chromatique"; and Claudio Arrau's transcendental conclusion to Beethoven's Opus 111. Whole pieces and large sections of pieces are here played; the listener is never frustrated by mere snippets. In addition, truly expert musical commentators add colorful and historical information one could get only from them. Schuyler Chapin remembers Vladimir Horowitz, backstage at Carnegie Hall, about to reenter the Prime-Time TV Rankings NBC Has Answer ABC's "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire"-fueled winning streak has ended at 22 consecutive weeks, as NBC passed the ball to the NBA basketball playoffs and outscored the Alphabet network for the first time since December, based on viewing estimates issued Tuesday by Nielsen Media Research. Despite that milestone, the week's big story was "Survivor," the CBS series that subjects 16 ordinary people to various indignities on a remote island. Even facing an extra episode of "Millionaire," the program which ousts one of its "players," beginning last week with a woman named Sonja, at the close of each hour drew CBS' highest regular-series rating in the 8 p.m. Wednesday slot in two years and gained viewers during the second half- Natlonal Nielsen Vlewershlp Here are the rankings for national prime are based on the average number of people U.S. viewers age 2 and older.

Gyorgy Sandor describes why Hof-mann was the ideal and the standard for two generations of his peers. Stephen Kovacevich explains the Glenn Gould phenomenon. Daniel Barenboim probes the "normality" that made Rubinstein beloved of musicians and audiences alike. Not incidentally, the easygoing host is Artur's son, actor John Rubinstein. Was anyone left out? Of course. Naturally, those pianists still living for ABC's 22-Week hour, meaning those curious about the offbeat premise generally didn't tune out. "Survivor's" second installment airs tonight, competing with the NBA Finals on the West Coast but preceding the game in the Central and Eastern time zones. The news wasn't all good for CBS. Rosie O'Don-nell returned as host of the Tony Awards, but ratings still fell 7 from last year and 28 or about 3.3 million viewers versus 1998. The show did face stiff competition, including "Millionaire," the Lakers-Trail Blazers conclusion and the third-season premiere of HBO's "Sex and the City," which saw its audience increase by more than 1 million viewers compared to last season's debut.
