According to published reports, ABC will not renew its low-rated but critically acclaimed Tuesday night drama "thirtysomething" for another season.

Fans of the show, small in number put powerful in loyalty, believe "thirtysomething" provides a refreshing and compelling glimpse into the lives of an ensemble of complicated -- albeit angst-ridden -- characters. Detractors claim the show's characters are self-absorbed whiners.

We'd like to know your view by having you respond to two questions.

First, will you miss "thirtysomething"?

Second, do you believe networks have an obligation to air shows like "thirtysomething," dramas that appeal to narrow rather than broad audiences?

To register your opinion, call SUNDIAL, the Baltimore Sun's directory of telephone information services at 783-1800 (or 268-7736 in Anne Arundel County) today until midnight.

After you hear the greeting, you'll be asked to punch in a four-digit code on your touch-tone phone. Punch 4600 and you'll be connected with "It's Your Call," The Evening Sun's survey on topical issues.

"It's Your Call" represents a sampling of opinions from certain segments of the community, but it is not balanced demographically as would be done in a scientific public opinion poll.

Look for results in Thursday's Evening Sun.
