'Joe Buck Live' Officially Canceled

by Andrew Scott, posted Mar 29th 2010 6:10PM
Joe Buck LiveHBO has pulled the plug on 'Joe Buck Live' after just three episodes, Broadcasting & Cable confirmed today.

The sports talk show, which replaced 'Costas Now' last June, was perhaps best known for its rocky premiere episode, during which 'Howard Stern''s Artie Lange infamously referred to Jessica Simpson as a "fat chick."

Subsequent episodes suffered in the ratings, with its most recent episode pulling in just a 1.2 rating, according to the report.

"Joe Buck is one of the premier broadcasters in our industry. We have made the decision not to continue his talk show and wish him all the best and continued success with his wide array of responsibilities at Fox Sports ... It was a privilege to work with him at HBO. Joe worked tirelessly on the three shows, and we appreciate his professionalism and immense talent," HBO Sports president Ross Greenburg said in a statement.

Artie Lange stabbed himself nine times, say sources

Artie LangeFans of Artie Lange (and of Howard Stern's show on SIRIUS radio) have been worried about Lange every since he was rushed to the hospital last weekend. Now we know why he's there and why no explanation was given at first: he tried to commit suicide.

Lange stabbed himself nine times and his mother called 911. He lost a lot of blood but doctors were able to save his life.

For some reason, suicide didn't even cross my mind as a possible reason that he was in the hospital. Not even for a second. I just assumed that he was in there because of drug problems and/or a possible overdose.

Artie Lange has been booted from HBO

by Brad Trechak, posted Jun 17th 2009 2:03PM
Artie LangeThe New York Post reports that Artie Lange is no longer welcome to appear on HBO Sports or Joe Buck Live. I'm not sure if that ban extends to the entirety of HBO. For those of you that missed his, to say the least, controversial appearance, TV Squad had it covered but sadly the video was taken down.

Considering the company that Artie keeps on Sirius Satellite Radio, being banned should not be a foreign concept to him. No doubt they'll talk about it on Howard Stern's radio show for days on end.

Artie Lange is more interesting than the sports stars on Joe Buck Live

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 16th 2009 1:27PM
Artie Lange, Paul Rudd, and Jason Sudeikis were on the premiere episode of Joe Buck Live last night, and let's just say that Lange took control of the show with a dirty put down to Buck after the host brought up TMZ.com. (The after-the-show webcast can be seen at HBO's site, but it seems to be down right now.). Sports Illustrated has more, including comments from HBO and Buck.

Oh, Brett Favre was on the show too.
