Picks and Pans Main: Tube

These are parlous times for radio personalities trying to make the transition to late-night TV hosts. Kick Dees has been deposed by ABC, and Jonathon Brandmeier's syndicated show, Johnny B...On the Loose, got a quick hook. (Taped episodes will run until early next month.) If our luck holds, Howard Stern and his puerile syndicated peep show will get the ax next.

The purge hardly comes as a surprise. The only reason for tuning in was masochistic fascination in watching these desperate clowns die a thousand deaths every night.
