Here are the highlights from Tuesday’€™s Three for All on Middays with MFB with Lou Merloni, Christian Fauria and Tim Benz. To hear the segment, go to the MFB audio on demand page.

— Fauria was doing the show from New York City and decided to go visit a psychic Monday night. It didn’t go as well as he wanted.

“I go to the psychic’s little office, which is basically her house and there is just a curtain divider and someone is cooking dinner in the back,” Fauria said. “There is a kid yelling in this one room, ‘I want my teddy bear.’ You know, it was crazy. I roll up in there and she’s like go and sit down and of course I whip out my [microphone]. She freaks out. She freaks out. It’s a big [microphone] too. … The funny thing was like I’m going to use this for the radio and try and have some fun and of course she wanted nothing to do with it.”

He said it may have been because he was using his “Chicago, Lou [Merloni]” voice.

“It’s cool like on the phone, but when you do it in person don’t you think you look a little funny and probably not very trustworthy?” Merloni asked.

— Merloni brought up how the Bruins on Monday went to Children’s Hospital dressed as characters from the Disney movie ‘Frozen.’

The hosts then got talking about Halloween Friday night.

“Now Tim, will you be handing out candy at your one-bedroom studio apartment?” Fauria asked.

“No, because what is going to happen is we are going to go to the main door, which is upstairs and I am safely tucked away in the back,” Benz replied. “We don’t see a lot of kids having the inspiration to go out back and see if there is a door to downstairs. So, I think I am good and I don’t have to give out candy.”

— Actor Taylor Kitsch from the show ‘Friday Night Lights’ has been added to the cast of ‘True Detective.’

“I was going to ask because I don’t watch Friday Night Lights, if this was a good addition to the cast or not and I guess you guys aren’t familiar with Friday Night Light either, you don’t watch that show?” Benz asked.

“No, not the show. I’ve seen the movie,” Merloni replied.
