Dan Gilbert might want to reconsider.? Last summer, after LeBron James famously announced that he was taking his talents to South Beach, the Cleveland Cavaliers owner guaranteed his team would win an NBA championship "before the self-titled former king wins one. " ? His comments are more laughable now than they were then, if that's possible, with the Cavaliers lugging the NBA's worst record into Tuesday night's game against the Lakers.? As for James and the Miami Heat, they might have a more difficult time dispatching Blake Griffin and the young Clippers on Wednesday night than they did the Lakers last month.

MSNBC is bumping Tucker Carlson's low-rated eponymous afternoon show and replacing it with a political news program anchored by David Gregory called "Race for the White House," the network announced Monday.

I FEEL LIGHT, delicate. I am in Tucker Carlson's arms, as he leads me around the dance floor. He is holding my hands and teaching me to quick step. "Normally I would have trouble touching an L.A. Times columnist," he says. "But this show has broken down all my normal defenses." Carlson is practicing his moves at the 3rd Street Dance studio for tonight's season debut of ABC's "Dancing With the Stars."

Sometime between the Israeli-Hezbollah cease-fire and the arrest of a suspect in the JonBenet Ramsey slaying last week, a story of grave national import broke on the newswires. Yes, MSNBC host Tucker Carlson will waltz -- or perhaps tango, lambada or funky-chicken -- across our screens as a contestant on the upcoming season of ABC's reality competition "Dancing With the Stars."

SO MSNBC is mired in third place among all-news cable networks ["A New Look for Its News at MSNBC," by Scott Collins, June 12]. Gee, it couldn't possibly have anything to do with the fact that four of their five evening programs are hosted by conservatives (Tucker Carlson, Joe Scarborough, Chris Matthews, Rita Cosby). Competing with Fox News for right-wing viewers is a fool's errand. Since many people believe the media are liberal anyway, why doesn't MSNBC simply go ahead and try a mostly liberal lineup?

MSNBC will shift Tucker Carlson's low-rated talk show out of prime time in much of the country, moving it to 11 p.m. on the East Coast and 8 p.m. on the West Coast. Ex-Fox News channel anchor Rita Cosby will fill his time slot. Since its debut June 13, the bow-tied conservative's show has averaged 201,000 viewers, 25% fewer than its time-slot predecessor, "The Abrams Report," had in May, according to Nielsen Media Research.
