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.
