'The Charlie Hodge Half-Time Show', KLBJ

Best known as one-third of the three-man main show on KLBJ's long-running Dudley & Bob Morning Show, Charlie Hodge added a few more hours to his überearly rise this year to host the new midday, hourlong Half-Time Show, from noon to 1pm. Hodge expands his presence as the Morning Show third man (time to upgrade his rank?) into a whole hour of undiluted, and largely unscripted, Hodge brain fart. Sure, the show could use a producer to rein in Hodge's tendency to wander into the verbal jungle, but he usually manages to squeeze out a laugh. Take our word for it, and tune in now, before the Hodge is tamed out of him.
