Harvey Korman died Thursday.

What does that have to do with my Friday newspaper column? WatchDog kudos to the first reader with an answer.

For a big hint, here is a quote from CBS executive Kelly Kahl about the night the network chose for its inaugural Mixed Martial Arts show this weekend:

"I think all the networks are guilty of letting Saturday night slip away. It wasn’t that long ago that Saturday nights were a big deal on network television. If we can use this to make Saturday night a little bit more of an event from time to time that’s a win for everybody . . . Unfortunately, the bar isn’t all that high for success. If we get half the people who really seem to be into MMA, we’ll do OK. But we’re not putting high expectations on this first one."
