Kingsley stays put on WUBE-FM

Country music giant WUBE-FM (105.1) folks have decided to keep Bob Kingsley’s country countdown at 8 a.m. Sundays – where it has been for decades – despite the popular host switching networks.
ABC dropped Kingsley as host of “American Country Countdown” at the end of the year in favor of Kix Brooks. So Kingsley stays at 8 a.m. Sunday, while “ACC” with Brooks airs 1-5 a.m. Sundays. Program director Marty Thompson says he’s working on giving Brooks’ show a better time slot.

Kimmel on the road
ABC hopes to boost Jimmy Kimmel’s ratings during Super Bowl week by having him broadcast Jan. 31-Feb. 3 from the GEM Theater in Detroit. The game is Sunday, Feb. 5.

TV news
All kinds of news coming out of the Television Critics Association press tour in Pasadena. Some items of note:
--“The Sopranos” return for a sixth and last season – yes, they say again THIS will be the last -- on March 12. There are 20 new episodes (up from 13 in past years). Twelve will air this spring, and the last eight start in January '07.
--Season finale (and likely series finale) for “Arrested Development” will air Friday, Feb. 10, as a two-hour block – against the Winter Olympics opening ceremony on NBC. This show gets no respect, right down to the bitter end?
--Good news for “Monk” fans: USA cable has ordered two more seasons – 16 episodes each year for season five and season six. In 2008, USA cable will air repeats of the show five nights a week.
