Today’s Highlights By Josh Friedman Times Staff Writer In the court of public opinion, few get a worse rap than public defenders. Stereotyped as mediocre lawyers who sleep through trials, they are more often maligned than appreciated for protecting the rights of the indigent. Filmmakers Pamela Yates and Peter Kinoy try to set the record straight in “Presumed Guilty,” a persuasive two-hour documentary airing tonight at 9on KCET. The show follows four cases handled by the San Francisco Public Defender’s Office, helping us understand why these pros fight the good fight, even if it’s usually on behalf of people who have done bad things. As one defender says, a vigorous defense is like amuscle that must be exercised, lest it atrophy when needed most for the innocent client. Two cases are misdemeanors assigned to feisty rookies; intertwined with those stories are murder cases handled by longtime defenders. Jeff Adachi, who was motivated to study law after his parents and grandparents were interned for being Japanese Americans, defends a Cambodian immigrant ac- cused of slaying a gang boss. Will Maas, a Vietnam vet fighting his own demons as well as the prosecution, comes off as twisted but cunning in his defense of the alleged triggerman in a murder for hire. Maas, who tapes a bizarre video diary in the wee hours and wears big glasses in court to “peer into the souls” of witnesses, recalls a 1966 firefight to psych himself up for legal battle. A lone enemy soldier killed 12 men in Maas’ squad that day. The lesson? “You never know,” Maas says. “You might win a battle here and there, and you might win the war.” TUNED IN Robert Gumpert AT WORK: Jeff Adachi, right, with a client in “Presumed Guilty” on KCET tonight at 9.

Today’s Talk Shows National ratings for the all- California World Series are lagging well behind last year’s New York-Arizona faceoff, tracking so far about on par with 2000 viewing levels, based onesti- mates issued Tuesdayby Nielsen Media Research. Not surprisingly, ratings are much higher locally, with Game 2attracting roughly 30% of homes in the Los Angeles viewing area, compared to 12% nationally. Because baseball skews to men and older viewers, certain programs can hold their own against the Series, which proved the case Sunday, with solid ratings for “The Practice” and “Law &Order: Criminal Intent.” Last week’s box score for rookie series, meanwhile, was generally unimpressive — particularly on Friday, when Fox’s “John Doe” and “Firefly” put up mediocre numbers, as did CBS’ “Robbery Homicide Division” and the once-promising “Hack.” ABC’s “Push, Nevada” concludes its run Thursday,none too soon, as the mystery drew the lowest rating for that hour in the network’s history opposite CBS’ “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,” which again hit an all- time high. Despite that lead-in audience, however, CBS’ “Without a Trace” hasn’t made much of a dent in “ER” at 10 p.m. Thursdays, last week retaining a lowest-yet 48% of “CSI” viewers. The WB’s “Smallville” also posted a best-ever rating, while “Birds of Prey” lost altitude in its second telecast, dropping nearly athird from its premiere. —Brian Lowry Ratings need rally monkey National Nielsen Viewership Here are the rankings for national prime-time network television last week (Oct. 14-20) as compiled by Nielsen Media Research.
