TV version of 'Mike'd Up' might be entering final months

Len Berman's departure might not be the end of the changes in the Channel 4 sports landscape.

A TV industry source familiar with the station said Mike Francesa is considering giving up his Sunday night "Mike'd Up" show effective this summer.

The problem is not ratings or money but rather - at least in part - the day-long grind of football Sundays for Francesa, who has a syndicated Sunday morning radio show during the season. He has been doing double duty since the TV show debuted in 2003.

What are the odds of the Sunday night program surviving into the 2009 NFL season? Perhaps 50-50.
