NEW YORK - John Oliver will have the crab cakes - but that's all, thanks. In a private dining room at HBO's plush headquarters overlooking Bryant Park in midtown Manhattan, a waitress in a crisp black uniform asks the 37-year-old comedian if he'd like anything else - perhaps some soup or salad? He declines with a polite insistence that suggests he's not quite used to all the luxurious trappings. Then, as soon as the waitress leaves the room, he launches into a riff about possibly sinister deeds going on behind the scenes at HBO. "I don't know what happens here," he says, "This is, like, unsettlingly nice.

Angels 11, Detroit Tigers 6 AT THE PLATE: Ian Stewart, a late addition to the lineup when third baseman David Freese was scratched because of right quadriceps tightness, came within a home run of the cycle, hitting a run-scoring triple in the second inning, a double in the fourth and a single in the seventh. Mike Trout doubled twice, drove in two runs and scored twice, as the Angels amassed 10 or more extra-base hits in a game for the second time this week. The Angels also lead the American League with 27 homers.

Congratulations must be pouring into record executive Clive Davis' office after two of "his" albums entered the Top 5 of the national sales chart Wednesday: Santana's "Shaman" and Rod Stewart's "It Had to Be You ... The Great American Songbook." As head of Arista Records in 1999, Davis helped Carlos Santana orchestrate the smash album "Supernatural." Davis has since moved on to form J Records, but he still worked as co-producer on the new album, which entered the chart at No.

While reading Charles Champlin's well-deserved tribute to the late James Stewart "Innocent, Patriot, Idealist, Romantic," July 4), I was amazed that Champlin would make such glaring errors in describing two of the actor's roles. In "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington," the pile of telegrams he collapses into were not "supportive." In fact, when he grabs a handful, he refers to them as lies. In "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance," he plays an attorney, not a newspaper editor. The quoted "When the legend becomes fact, print the legend," comes at the end of the film from another character, a newspaper editor.

Ivan (Ironman) Stewart finds short-course off-road stadium racing exciting, but for sheer enjoyment, he says it pales by comparison to desert racing, which is dirty, dusty and downright wild and wonderful. "I enjoy the challenge of short course racing," said Stewart, 41, of Lakeside, "but desert racing is my first love. . . . Riding through the wild roads of Baja is much more attractive than racing in front of people (in a stadium)."

This week's episode of  Cosmos  paid tribute to the mind-bending science behind some of the most popular tropes in science fiction, so it's only fitting that it also featured a special cameo by none other than Patrick Stewart. Stewart is best known to his legion of fans as  Star Trek 's Captain Jean-Luc Picard. (That high-pitched sound you hear is a collective “squee!” from my fellow geekerati.) Stewart voices astronomer William Herschel in an animated sequence set in 1802, as Herschel walks along the beach at night with his young son, John.

Collin Cowgill edged out J.B. Shuck for a reserve outfield spot, Ian Stewart beat out Grant Green for a backup infield job, and Matt Shoemaker was added to the bullpen as a long reliever, as the Angels made their final cuts and announced their 25-man opening-day roster Saturday night. The left-handed-hitting Shuck earned several American League rookie-of-the-year votes after hitting .293 with 128 hits in 129 games last season, and he had a solid spring, hitting .281 (16 for 57) with five triples in 21 games through Friday night.

Patrick Stewart is great to follow on Twitter, even more so lately as he posts daily pics of himself and pal Ian McKellen while they count down the remaining days of their "Two Shows in Rep" run on Broadway. Stewart and McKellen playing Skee-Ball , Stewart and McKellen on a skyscraper with New York City unfolding behind them, Stewart and McKellen on the boardwalk -- all with black bowlers firmly in place.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell's wordless campaign ad has given Jon Stewart and the writers of "The Daily Show" endless pleasure. So much pleasure, in fact, that before their spring break, they bequeathed #McConnelling on the world. The phenomenon, already hashtagged for maximum social media ease, invited viewers to provide their own soundtrack to the McConnell campaign ad. And submit they did. On Tuesday's show, Stewart unveiled his favorites, which included selections from Simon and Garfunkel and the '80s Swiss electronic band, Yello.

Angels 8, Cubs 4 AT THE PLATE: Ian Stewart, who appears to have the edge over several candidates for a reserve spot, sparked a six-run ninth inning with a home run and capped the rally with a run-scoring single. Grant Green (triple), Collin Cowgill (double), J.B. Shuck (single), Shawn O'Malley (run-scoring single) and Abel Baker (two-run single) added hits in the inning. Raul Ibanez hit his second spring home run, and Josh Hamilton doubled. ON THE MOUND: Jered Weaver, pitching in a triple-A game against Milwaukee so the Angels could regulate his workload, gave up four hits, struck out eight and walked one in seven scoreless innings, throwing 102 pitches.
