mike wallace cbs Mike Wallace tribute set for '60 Minutes,' 'Game of Thrones' ratings stay solidBite-sized pieces of TV news, including items on Mike Wallace, “The Client List” and more:

“60 Minutes” will pay tribute to Mike Wallace in Sunday’s (April 15) show. Wallace, who died April 7 at the age of 93, was a fixture on the CBS program for close to 40 years; Sunday’s program will be dedicated to his career. [CBS]

– Ratings for week 2 of “Game of Thrones” stayed strong. The HBO show drew 3.8 million viewers on Sunday, down only a tick from the 3.9 million who tuned in to the previous week’s season premiere. [HBO]

– More cable ratings: AMC’s “Mad Men” (2.8 million viewers) and “The Killing” (1.8 million) were both pretty steady compared to last week’s numbers, while Lifetime got 2.8 million people to tune into the premiere of “The Client List.” [AMC/Lifetime]

– One of prime-time’s longest-running series will have a drastically reduced presence on TV for the rest of the year. FOX has cut back on “Cops,” which has aired on the network since 1989 and instead will fill most of its Saturday nights with sports coverage — a mix of baseball, NASCAR, college football and UFC events. “Cops” will still air here and there when Fox Sports is dark.

Rosie O’Donnell and Dan Aykroyd are getting “Divorced.” The two will appear in separate episodes of TV Land’s comedy “Happily Divorced” in May. O’Donnell will play an old friend of Fran’s (Fran Drescher), and Aykroyd will play a “charming and successful” man Fran’s ex (John Michael Higgins) introduces to her. [EW]
