"Vibe," the 11-week-old late-night talk show that has been clouded by the bad vibes of poor ratings, bounced host Chris Spencer on Tuesday, less than two weeks after producers had given him a public vote of confidence. Sinbad will take over "Vibe" for at least two months starting next week, but sources with the show said that the actor-comedian was reluctant to commit to the job permanently. "I'm happy to be guest-hosting the show," Sinbad said in a statement.

After more than six months of mediocre ratings and backstage difficulties, "The Keenen Ivory Wayans Show," a late-night talk show geared to young urban audiences, has been canceled. Mort Marcus, president of Buena Vista Television, which produced and distributed the syndicated show, said the decision to shelve the program was a painful one.

Eight people were injured--one seriously--when they fell eight feet to the floor after a bleacher railing snapped during an intermission in the taping of the "Vibe" television talk show Thursday in Hollywood. Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Brian Humphrey said the accident occurred when members of the audience surged forward to grab for free promotional compact discs and videocassettes being tossed to them from the stage at CBS Television City.
