Following up on today’s media notes column (linked here) that involved the MLB playoffs, Barack Obama’s clout in pushing back the start of World Series Game 6 (Fox, by the way, says the $1 mil they’ll get for airing that half-hour infomercial is a wash, compared to all the ad time they’d have sold for a 20-minute pregame show) and John Madden parking the bus for a couple of weeks, we learned this week that:

==The L.A. college football TV schedule for Week 8 is really busy Saturday at about 1 p.m. (linked here).

==Fox’s coverage of the NLCS had some dandy camera work (linked here)

==Citizens of Sylmar are now safe that TNT’s Charles Barkley has come and gone (linked here).

==Bob Costas stands behind his involvment, and the Hollywood dramatic license, taken by “The Express” (linked here).

==We lost an L.A. sportscasting legend when Gil Stratton passed away in Toluca Lake on Saturday (linked here). Also watch thetouching piece that MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann did on Stratton (linked here).
