BETWEEN THIS AND JENNIFER LAWRENCE'S OSCAR DRESS, A COMEBACK IS CLEARLY COMING: As part of our continuing quest to note when the NYT makes strange cultural references, we note that today's edition features, in the lead of a 1A article, a reference to Baywatch Nights, the X-Files inspired spinoff of Baywatch.

    Actually, in 1995, Baywatch Nights was a generic private eye show. When that didn't work, they reconfigured it to have Mitch and Angie Harmon and company investigating paranormal cases.

    Why do I know this? Because the press conference for the revamped show was one of the very first I ever attended as a critic. Sigh...
