Robin Quivers Gets a Shot at Baseball Redemption on 'Jimmy Kimmel'It was a good night for 'The Howard Stern Show' on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC). Previously, Gary Dell'Abate (a.k.a., "Baba Booey" -- the show's producer and unofficial mascot) played a game of catch with Kimmel. And it went badly. How badly? Bad enough that Mr. Booey hit an audience member in the head with a baseball.

That wasn't the worst part. Baba Booey was already trying to recover from one of the greatest televised baseball disasters ever. The producer threw the ceremonial first pitch at a Mets game -- and missed home plate by about fifteen feet.

Mr. Dell'Abate -- better known as "Baba Booey" to fans of the Howard Stern radio show -- threw out a first pitch at a Mets game about four years ago, and that went just fine. So his lifelong dream was fulfilled! Maybe just stop right there, then! It's probably better not to tempt fate. Because "Baba Booey" then threw out another first pitch last year -- and it was one of the worst moments in televised baseball history.

Gary Dell'Arte Talks 'Howard Stern Show' Future on 'Late Show''The Howard Stern Show' has only 22 shows left on its contract with Sirius XM, revealed executive producer Gary Dell'Abate (aka "Baba Booey") when he visited the 'Late Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS).

What's next for the iconic radio program? It's anyone's guess. "They've been in contract negotiation for a year," said Dell'Abate. "It's gotten to that weird place where, if I come in dressed up, everyone thinks I'm going on a job interview."

"Howard represents himself in these negotiations, and he pretty much does it on the air," joked David Letterman. The host shared his theory: Stern won't be going anywhere, because only satellite radio can afford him.
