Joe Buck’s eponymous HBO talk show is getting shut down. Only three episodes ever made air. Who could have seen this coming? Besides everyone?

After three episodes, Joe Buck says he does not expect his HBO show “Joe Buck Live” to continue. “There’s only another nine months on that contract anyway, so I don’t think it’s that big of a deal either way,” he told the St. Louis sports talk station 1380 AM on Wednesday. Asked if he would miss it, he said: “No, not really. There was a lot more behind the scenes, a lot more effort and hassle than I ever expected.” –NYT; thanks to Mark B.

Joe Buck’s personality makes a call to tech support in India seem friendly and inviting. Whoever gave this guy his own talk show deserves to be locked in a basement in front of a TV looping nothing but Robin Williams movies. Hope you like Patch Adams, cockbag.
