WHO'S THE MAN? Will ''The O.C.'''s Brody win out over ''Survivor''?

With fall shows going head to head what will you tape?

With so few quality shows on TV these days, I hate it when the networks pit two good shows against each other. Now that the fall schedule is starting, what shows will you be forced to record on your VCR or TiVo? -- Johnnie Tsai

It's tough, isn't it? I used to watch ''Survivor'' on Thursdays, but now ''The O.C.'' is on at the same time -- so what'll I do? Watch Adam Brody crack wise for 55 minutes, then switch over to CBS to see who gets booted? More likely, I'll be taping. Same thing with ''CSI'' versus ''The Apprentice,'' and new competitors like ''Jack & Bobby'' and ''Desperate Housewives,'' both on Sunday.
