LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

Unless you have a dog in the Giants/Phillies NLCS playoff tonight we recommend the lineup below. Of particular note is Comedy Central's "Night of Too Many Stars" (Twitter: #2ManyStars) autism benefit - some pretty hilarious hijinks for a great cause, if you're a fan of comedy that's where you should spend some time tonight. See our interviews at the event at the end of this post.

CBS is renewing all 5 of its new Fall programs - is this because they literally have nothing else to throw out there? We've always thought that the keeper was "Hawaii Five-O" with "Blue Bloods" as questionable, whereas "Mike and Molly" and "(Bleep) My Dad Says" were probably the least acceptable new comedies this season. Demetri Martin's show can't come fast enough.

Earlier this month we questioned how CNN fired Rick Sanchez for his comments about Jon Stewart and now even Jon Stewart agrees with us.
