Radio By Lewis Segal Times Staff Writer The first thing wrong with the PBS “Dance in America” telecast tonight is its title: “Born to Be Wild: The Leading Men of American Ballet Theatre” (8 p.m., KCET). Wild? Mild is more like it. Riding a motorcycle and fearlessly proclaiming his heterosexuality don’t exactly make Ethan Stiefel arebel hellion, and that’s about as edgy as anyone gets in this lightweight, hourlong look at four virtuosos: Stiefel, Vladimir Malakhov, Jose Manuel Carreño and Angel Corella.Indeed, there’s a rather strained attempt to make these high-profile dance artists seem like ordinary guys — and it doesn’t work. Now about that subtitle: If these star dancers really are the leading men of ABT, where does that leave their stellar colleague Julio Bocca,or, for that matter, all the men at the top of the company roster in performances at the Kodak Theatre in December? In the program’s best moments, the camera follows its subjects to their far-flung birthplaces while we hear them talk about their reasons for becoming dancers. Corella and Malakhov are particularly revealing about growing up alienated from their peers and families, and the dancers’ parents often provide valuable insights — plus vintage home movies. Director Judy Kinbergproves obsessed, however, with cramming virtuosity onto the screen, much of it culled from the PBS telecast of “Le Corsaire.”As a result, the talk and images often refuse to connect. We hear Corella call himself a passionate dancer but see only technical fireworks. We hear Stiefel speak of needing a variety of challenges but see only flashy jumps and turns. Unifying the hour: scenes showing choreographer Mark Morris creating a new work for these four men. Unfortunately, his plotless, seven-minute showpiece “Non Troppo”(to Schumann) turns out to be an unimaginative exercise unworthy of its cast. But the rehearsal footage is a delight — and lasts longer than the work itself.

There has also been some criticism — including, when the project was announced, from within ABC News — that the Pentagon and the Department of Defense were granting wider access to entertainment producers than news organizations apt to provide a more unvarnished view of war. “It raises all sorts of questions, which are exacerbated by the entertainment factor,” said Robert Lichter, president of Washington, D.C.-based Center for Media and Public Affairs, on Tuesday.“One check on war news becoming propaganda is the professionalism of journalists, which will be ostentatiously lacking....Documentaries are inherently more informative than entertainment. ‘Reality’ programming turns the tables.” Van Munster, who is also partnered with Bruckheimer on CBS’ adventure-staged reality series “The Amazing Race,” stressed that it was not their intention to create propaganda and that there was no government interference. “The last thing I want is people nosing in my business and telling me how to make television,” Van Munster said. “They have not taken out one frame, which I think is miraculous, and we have some nasty stuff.” Production crews spent nearly six months with soldiers in Afghanistan beginning in May, “after some degree of calm had set in,” Van Munster said, adding that the crew nevertheless had undertaken “great personal risks to do this.” Still, the producer acknowledged that he wasn’t doing a news program. The series follows individual soldiers across various episodes,without commentary or narration. “There’s not one word written by us,” Van Munster said. “It’s pure documentary.” ABC has scheduled the project in one of its most perilous time slots — 8 p.m. Thursdays, versus NBC’s “Friends” and CBS’ “Survivor” — during a relatively fallow period between the February and May rating sweeps, key periods that networks use to determine advertising rates. That timing, and time slot, might otherwise suggest that ABC has little faith in the series. The decision takes on a different light, however, set against the prospect of war in Iraq. Jeff Bader, ABC’s executive vice president in charge of scheduling, admitted that the network had grappled with some uncertainty about when it made sense to broadcast the program, which he called “a tribute to the people who are over there, doing what they’re doing.” He added that ABC will “be gauging the mood of the country right up until this premieres,” which could result in a scheduling change if events warrant it. Bader also conceded that it’s unclear how “Profiles” will perform in the ratings, which explains its placement on a low- rated night for the network at a time when the competition is likely to be showing more reruns than usual. “It’s not the type of reality show people are watching right now,” he said. “It’s not fun and escapist.” Similarly themed programs haven’t performed especially well in the ratings. The VH1 cable network’s “Military Diaries” covered similar terrain last year, seeking to put a face on U.S. forces serving abroad, and CBS canceled another unscripted program, “AFP: American Fighter Pilot,” after only two episodes in April. Afghan war focus of reality series [ Lowry, from Page E1 ] David Hume Kennerly NOT NEWS: Producer Bertram van Munster says “Front Line” is “pure documentary.” Adouble dose of “American Idol” coupled with a top 10 finish by “Joe Millionaire” helped propel Fox to its first weekly win without the help of a big sporting event like the World Series or Super Bowl, according to figures released Tuesday by Nielsen Media Research. Fox, which airs 15 hours of programming in prime time, versus 22 on the other major networks, also got a boost from the most-watched episode of “Malcolm in the Middle” in nearly a year, in which Lois (Jane Kaczmarek)discovers she is pregnant. The installments of “American Idol,” which aired on KTTV on Tuesday and Wednesday nights, were the top two shows in the Los Angeles area. CBS’ “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” weathered the reality series onslaught and finished as the most-watched program for the 13th week (out of 19) this season. CBS was in third place for the week behind NBC. ABC was in fourth place but got good news from its spy series “Alias,” which received a bit of a bounce from its post-Super Bowl telecast, drawing its biggest audience since the season premiere. —John Scheibe ‘Idol,’ ‘Joe’ give Fox a ratings win National Nielsen Viewership Here are the rankings for national prime- time network television last week (Jan. 27- Feb. 2) as compiled by Nielsen Media Research.
