It looks like HBO is about to pull the plug on St. Louis broadcaster Joe Buck's talk show, Joe Buck Live.

Talking to sports website Deadspin this week, Buck said the network informed him that it's moving away from talk shows.

"That's bad news when you have a talk show," said Buck, who suggested that the show could have gotten off to a better start. "If HBO loved the show, I am sure somehow it would continue. That's ok. I am a big boy. I gave it all I had and I had a blast on those three nights last year."

That's right. The show ran just three times, including its debut with potty-mouthed comedian Artie Lange who did his best to forever ruin the show.
