TV Junkie: Mid-Term Election Coverage Tonight; Team Coco Ramps Up; #SOA iPhone App

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

It's mid-term election night madness (thank goodness the World Series is over) so we'll be switching back and forth between the excellent coverage on PBS and KTLA whilst getting doses of humor from Comedy Central with about 50 browser windows open including those of LAist and the LA Times, of course. What resources (TV & Online) will you be using tonight to keep tabs on the elections?
Have you seen Team Coco's "Show Zero"? Check it out above. We can't wait for the show's debut as Conan O'Brien's presence from late night TV has been missed. In related news: Bill Carter's book on NBC's Leno/Conan debacle, "The War for Late Night", is available. Also, The Hollywood Reporter conducted a poll about late night shows and talent: it's official, if you're a Tea Partier you watch Leno.
Not only is there a new (excellent) episode of "Sons of Anarchy" (FX @ 10pm) but the show now has an iPhone/iPad app for you to get exclusive photos, bonus clips, script pages, and more - make sure your iPhone has 3.2 OS or above. Check out the demo vid with series creator Kurt Sutter at the end of this post.
