B-SIDE: Compared to the symphony of KUAT-TV's Arizona Illustrated, the local commercial stations are just so much empty pop. The Channel 6 team doesn't race to capture breaking news, so if a meth-crazed headbanger is in a stand-off with cops at a local Circle K, KUAT's cameras won't be on the scene. You can't get scores from the ballgames and the brief weather report doesn't include dazzling CGI graphics. But Arizona Illustrated does cover the day's headlines--which, in some cases, is more than the other stations do--and uses meager resources to report on stories that take a deeper look at politics, personalities, arts and culture, from San Xavier Mission to Pat's Chili Dogs. Tune in five days a week from 6:30 to 7 p.m., or catch the repeat at 11:30 p.m.
