Blasphemy, I know - and maybe it's just me - but I think Charlie and Dave's style is all wrong for TV.  All that screaming and shouting is fine for radio, but when I actually watch a game, I don't need the booth constantly reminding me that they are there.  Maybe this is why I can't understand all the people who talk about muting Carpenter + whoever.  They're so unobtrusive, is it that hard to just tune them out?
With radio, they have to talk more to describe what's going on.  I mean it's radio, there can't just be long stretches of silence.  You're right, it might not work as well for TV.
