You know me — no cable, no Direct TV, no problem. But I have now seen Bob Costas’ new show and I take it back. The first night’s lineup had Robert Wuhl, Ron Shelton, Susan Saradon and Tim Robbins (just adorable together) from Bull Durham, talking baseball and free speech; a discussion of NCAA-to-NBA recruiting with Jim Boeheim and Carmelo Anthony (nice kid); and John Cusack. Just yeah. If 12 weeks of America’s best sportscaster is all we get in today’s graceless TV age, well then thank HBO and block out the 11:30pm spot on Friday. You really have nothing better to do.
