HBO talk-show host and former Saturday Night Live
funnyman Dennis Miller
has been tapped to join former pro quarterback Dan Fouts
and Al Michaels
in the announcer's booth on ABC's popular Monday Night Football
telecasts. "I have a good trivia knowledge of football, and I'll bring an odd, idiosyncratic list of quirky abilities," the M&M's pitchman told reporters during a telephone press conference. ABC earlier considered hiring Rush Limbaugh
for the job but decided to pass on the bombastic radio talk-show host.
