TV Bulletin Board (Aug. 14) -- Vick submits to 60 Minutes ticks

Michael Vick, newly signed with the Eagles, and James Brown

Michael Vick will go public on CBS' 60 Minutes Sunday to tell interviewer James Brown of his remorse after serving jail time for bankrolling a dog-fighting ring.

"It's wrong, man," he says in an excerpt provided by CBS. "I feel, you know, some tremendous hurt behind what happened. And, you know, I should have took the initiative to stop it all. I didn't. I didn't step up. I wasn't a leader."

***NBC's The Jay Leno Show has booked Jerry Seinfeld as its first guest. As previously reported, the inaugural musical guests are Jay-Z, Rihanna and Kanye West, who will perform "Run This Town" from the Z-Man's upcoming new CD. Launch date is Sept. 14th, with the show airing Mondays through Fridays at 9 p.m. central.

***TNT has announced plans for the series finale of Saving Grace, which is set to end with nine new episodes scheduled to run next summer.

Series star Holly Hunter, who will compete for a best actress Emmy next month, plays Oklahoma detective Grace Hanadarko, whose self-destructive behavior vexes but never discourages a guardian angel named Earl.

***The Great American Country (GAC) cable network will air Country at the White House on Saturday, Aug. 15th at 8 p.m. central.

***Also on the country scene this weekend, the longrunning duo of Brooks & Dunn will tell CMT Insider while they're breakin' up after one allegedly final concert tour next year.

"I mean, honestly, we both feel like it's just too good of a horse to ride it into the ground, so that's kinda it," Brooks says. Their segment airs on Saturday, Aug. 15th at 12:30 p.m. central on cable's Country Music Television (CMT).
