I am so incredibly angry with NBC. "Evergreen" was a fantastic program, but who needed to watch it? Every preview gave away all the secrets and surprises of the next episode. I was not surprised once during the miniseries because I already had found out what was to happen during the previews. I could have watched the Grammys.

The Grammy Awards show was the longest, most boring I have ever watched. John Denver, Rick Dees and a few others were the only bright spots in an otherwise tedious night. And what happened to Bruce Springsteen, the one person I stayed watching the miserable show to see? Springsteen wasn't even shown receiving his one measly award. He was briefly mentioned, however, as "one of those who received their award in an earlier presentation." What a waste of my time!

With the exception of Debbie Allen, Stevie Wonder, Tina Turner and Lionel Richie, the Grammy Awards was the most tacky, tasteless waste of television time I've ever seen. Disgusting!

Shame on you, KNBC, for letting the lovely, intelligent, thoroughly professional Tritia Toyota get away. She was the best you had in your news department. I, and I'm sure many others, will be watching our papers to see when and where this talented lady will reappear on local news. You really goofed, Channel 4.

Of all the Bob Hope specials I've seen in the past, none was as tasteful and enjoyable as his latest humorous, pun-filled edition. The cast was great.

"The Wizard of Oz" is one of my favorite movies, but unless I see it at a revival theater, I never get to see it uncut. This year, as always, CBS aired it with 5 1/2 minutes removed. CBS has been getting flack about this editing for years, but it is obviously indifferent to doing anything about it. What will it take to get the network to show this classic movie in its entirety?

The Feb. 24 "Trapper John, M.D." episode concerning Stanley Riverside's sperm count was one of the most tasteless I've ever seen. No wonder the show's ratings have slipped.

One of your recent correspondents wrote that Alex Trebek of "Jeopardy" is lacking in charisma and suitability as a host. I beg to differ! I consider Trebek to be sharp, clever and intelligent; he moves the program along at a great pace, never stumbling, and his enunciation is beautiful. He is a perfect host for this excellent program.
