CBS Interactive is up to a lot lately and has created a mash-up for online viewers who will be able to chat, vote on polls, and throw virtual crap at their screens.

The 10:00pm slot is kind of busy tonight but it appears to be a lot of crap, an exception being the utter insanity of Animal Planet's "Living with the Wolfman" - you'll have to see it to believe it. The 11:00pm slot brings the return of a full season of "Frank TV" - check out the Bostonist interview with comedian Frank Caliendo, who, if you don't remember from last season's "Frank TV", you should be aware of his FOX NFL Sunday and "MADtv" appearances.

The TV Junkie Plan: "The Amazing Dr. Clitterhouse" (I just can't help myself), "Fringe" (I just can't help myself), "Living with the Wolfman".
