IN THE NEWS: TV RATINGS IN THE DIGITAL AGE

NEW YORK (AP) -- Television certainly has changed much over the past 50 years.

But officials at the FX network are taking a different approach now. They say they aren't going to talk publicly about how their shows do on opening night. The reason: they want to wait a few days to see how many people watch after recording the shows on DVRs or check it out through other time-shifting means. It was less than a decade ago that most people watched a show when a network scheduled it. But these days, that is less likely to be the case.

IN THE NEWS: SSA HAVING COMPUTER PROBLEMS

WASHINGTON (AP) -- It can be frustrating to spend hundreds of dollars on a new computer, only to find it doesn't work.

For now, the computer system remains in the testing phase -- and the agency still can't say when it will be running, or how much it will end up costing.
