Ready for more of today’s TV dish? Well…

• Veteran Major League Baseball analyst Tim McCarver announced Wednesday his plans to step down from his position with MLB on FOX following the impending season’s World Series in October. “Although I am neither tired of broadcasting baseball nor have I in any way lost my interest in baseball, with which I have been associated as a player and broadcaster for 55 years, it’s time to cut back,” McCarver said in a statement. “I am very proud to have been a part of all the things that make this game so special for all of us who follow it day-to-day, week-to-week and year-to-year.”

• Are Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin bringing their New Years Eve act to CNN’s everyday lineup? Per Deadline, the duo recently shot a top-secret pilot for the news network that reportedly took place in front of a live audience and had “a lot of humor in it.”

    I wonder what this means for Kathy’s Bravo talk show?

  2. Amber says:

    I’m thrilled Tim McCarver is retiring. He drives me nuts with his commentary. I don’t enjoy him at all.

  3. Katrin says:

    I LOVE Burn Notice and I LOVE Adrian Pasdar, so that should be good… But it makes me even more worried now for TLG… although… of course with this mid-season finale he could be gone/dead anyways, but I’d hate for that to happen in TLG… Anyways… I’m really looking forward to seeing him in BN’s possible last season :)

    FLYING MAN!!!!

    Too bad Buck isn’t going instead of McCarver

  6. steven says:

    I believe Jack Coleman was previously cast on Burn Notice, and Adrian Pasdar’s casting should have created a Heroes reunion.

  7. Jared says:

    Adrian Pasdar plays Alec to perfection but ill follow him on ANY series he’s apart of. I love The Lying Game but ABCF puts that show on way too long of a hiatus. Hopefully the network will renew the series but if it’s not gonna get aired for another 10 months like last season I say dont even bother and let the actors move on. Would love to see Blair Redford and Alexandra Chando in something else.
