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.

Here are the highlights from Tuesday’€™s Headlines on Dennis & Callahan with Kirk Minihane, John Dennis and Gerry Callahan. To hear the segment, go to the Dennis & Callahan audio on demand page.

— The two leading candidates for Massachusetts governor — Republican Charlie Baker and Democrat Martha Coakley — had their next-to-last debate Monday night, and one of the topics that was discussed was the possibility of the Olympics coming to Boston.

“I say go for the gold,” Coakley said. “We’ll have that process. I think we are in a state now where Massachusetts has the opportunity to make that investment and I do believe and don’t disagree with some of what Charlie said, but as we move forward and plan for it you have to look at the numbers, obviously. If we look at it optimistically and say here’s an opportunity to invest infrastructure that we not only be great for Massachusetts to host this, but will be serviceable and useful for us going afterwards we have the smarts here in Massachusetts to do that.”

Said Baker: “Certainly the planning activity associated with the Olympic games is a good idea. By the way, some of the tools that have been developed with Boston 2024 to do analysis with how the city would change and basically how the region would change, view certain kind of assumptions around traffic and distribution, real estate and all the rest are going to be powerful tools to help the region plan moving forward. I certainly think the opportunity to host the game is one Boston and Massachusetts should take seriously.”

The hosts do not like the idea.

“She lives in her own world. These people live in a bubble,” Minihane said.

Added Callahan: “Invest in infrastructure. As soon as you hear that don’t you want to run for the hills? Grab your wallet, because they are coming after it.”

— Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi did not show up at a charity fundraiser for rescued animals in Santa Monica, California, on Sunday after having a huge fight in the car on the way to the event, according to the New York’s Post’s Page Six.

The report read: “Ellen and Portia were delayed and were in the car on the way when they had an epic fight. They ended up turning around and not going to the fundraiser.”

“There is no bigger phony in the world than Ellen DeGeneres,” said Callahan. “I wish some media outlet would pick up on it. We know it. We know the story. She is as phony as they come.”

— It has been reported North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un, who recently disappeared for almost six weeks, had surgery to remove a cyst from his ankle and that is the reason for his disappearance from the public view.

“I thought he was God-like, divine. Why does he get cysts?” Callahan asked.

Here are the highlights from Monday’s Headlines on Dennis & Callahan with Kirk Minihane, John Dennis and Gerry Callahan. To hear the segment, go to the Dennis & Callahan audio on demand page.

– It was a big weekend at the box office, as “Fury,” “Gone Girl,” and “St. Vincent” all finished in the top 10 in ticket sales. No. 1 was “Ouija,” topping all of the movies with $20 million.  The horror flick did horrible with the critics, but the board game-based movie was a hit with audience goers.

Callahan didn’t see that movie, but he enjoyed seeing the Bill Murray comedy “St. Vincent.”

“I’ll give it B-plus,” Callahan said. “It’s Bill Murray being Bill Murray is what it is. … Really being Bill Murray, like, kind of grouchy. He is likable in the end, you know how it works.”

Minihane and Dennis discussed Ben Affleck’s “Gone Girl,” saying there is one part in particular that hinders the movie.

“I gave it a B, I think you’re with me, the ending wasn’t good,” said Minihane.

Replied Dennis: “Well, it’s the way the book ended.”

Said Minihane: “That doesn’t excuse it, though.”

“What, you want them to change the ending?” asked Dennis.

Replied Callahan: “Just like ‘Lone Survivor,’ just change the ending — make it sexier.”

At first, Minihane couldn’t pronounce the movie “Ouija” and was surprised to learn that it was about the popular game.

“That’s how you say it? I didn’t know that,” Minihane said. “Like a stupid Ouija board? They made a movie about that? It made $20 million.”

– Comedian Jim Carrey hosted “Saturday Night Live” this past weekend as his new movie “Dumb and Dumber To” is on the verge of being released in theaters. Though there were high expectations going into the episode, the hosts again were disappointed with the sketch show.

“Are we at all concerned yet? Because I am about ‘Dumb and Dumber To,’ Minihane said.

Replied Callahan: “This has nothing to do with the movie.”

“I’m a little worried Jim Carrey’s lost his fastball,” Minihane said.

– In a somewhat of a surprising move, The Boston Globe backed Charlie Baker’s candidacy for governor over democratic candidate Martha Coakley. The newspaper has largely supported democratic candidates during election time. This endorsement had Callahan in a very confused state.

“I base my electoral decisions on [going against] Globe endorsements,” Callahan said. “I don’t know, I’m confused. What do I do?”

Replied Minihane: “You can’t vote for Martha Coakley.”

Said Callahan: “I would never do that. I would never, ever do that to you or anyone else.”

“What you do is you punt on it,” Minihane said.”
