There was some great TV on last night, with "Sons of Anarchy" continuing to get back on track after some silliness a couple weeks ago. On the more depressing side of things, "Frontline" continued to remind us that we are still riding a unicycle on the precipice of economic disaster. Look forward to more stark details from PBS as Margaret Warner, correspondent for "The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer", is traveling in Pakistan with Secretary of State Hilary Clinton and will be reporting on the region tonight and all this week.At least late night TV brought us out of our funk: just 24 hours after Craig Ferguson had to finish his taping by flashlight due to high winds knocking out power in his studio, he started off the show with a hilarious and very silly rendition of the Village People's "In the Navy" which is what late night is all about. Flipping channels over to Fallon, a surprise visit by Susan Sarandon seemed to knock even Artie Lange askew.

Did you have any favorite TV moments last night?
The Lakers' Pau Gasol will be dusting off his acting chops (again?) for an episode of "CSI: Miami". We think he should have held off for a role on "NCIS: Los Angeles".
Oh, that thing called The World Series starts tonight, in case you are interested.
The TV Junkie Plan: "The Botany of Desire", "Modern Family", "Cougar Town", "Nip/Tuck", Letterman, Fallon.
