Life After Howard Stern

This just in: Infinity announced its plans to replace Howard Stern this morning. Stern’s 27-station network will be busted up into 3 regions, with different talent. NY and East Coast gets David Lee Roth; LA and West Coast gets Adam Carolla; Cinci’s WAQZ-FM (New Rock 97.3) will get a Midwest show with “Rover,” now heard in Cleveland and Columbus. Rover will move to Chicago, and broadcast in 7 cities.

Katy Hines on NBC
Katy Hines, the Fairfield Iraq war widow with two young children, appears twice on NBC Friday. She was in New York Monday taping an interview with Amy Grant to air on the “Today” show about 9 a.m. Friday (Chs 5, 2) to promote her story on NBC’s “Three Wishes” at 9 p.m. Friday. The reality show gave Hines, 23, a new home in Liberty Township. You’ll read more about it Friday in the Enquirer and

Finally, “The Amazing Race” contestants leave the U.S. tonight (9 p.m., Ch 12). What makes this show fun to watch is the crazy Americanos making their way through foreign countries… not trying to find the World’s Largest Office Chair in Alabama. The Linz kids from Anderson Township start out in third tonight.

VCR alert: If you’re taping “Commander in Chief,” be advised that ABC is up to its old tricks – the show runs until 10:01 pm today and next Tuesday. And now that producer Steven Bochco has taken over the show, he’s adding Mark-Paul Gosselaar (from Bochco’s “NYPD Blue”) to the cast as a media strategist starting sometime in November…

And if you missed the “My Name Is Earl” pilot, NBC repeats it tonight at 9:30 p.m. (Ch 5, 2). A repeat already? Yes, because its up against the World Series.

I want to see Bochco bring in Dennis Franz to play a personal body guard to the new prez!

Wow - lots of stuff to talk about today.

I'm not much of a Stern fan so I welcome the change. I'd almost rather see how Diamond Dave's show turns out. Adam Corrolla can be anything from crude to entertaining. For the most part I’m not big into the whole “morning show” concept.

Going in I wasn’t sure if I’d like the family concept of this season’s show but I think it’s working pretty well. I really expected the family with the younger kids to go out early but they’re hanging tough. I won’t be sad to see the dysfunctional NY team leave.

Nice to see Mark-Paul is getting work. I’m still in morning about NYPD Blue being dropped. I just can’t seem to find a good replacement yet. Rescue Me was close -I know it’s not a police show but the characters were similar.

Repeat or not – I love Earl!
