Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls.

Some cool stuff heard over the weekend:

Stephen Colber(t) is writing a column for the New York Times.
Jimmy Kimmel will be doing 2 shows a day, 1 on each coast: Live With Regis and Kelly in NYC in the AM, and then Jimmy Kimmel LIVE from LA in the PM. The insanity starts on 10/22 and goes for a week.

8:00pm Chuck NBC - This still feels pretty new and engaging although they are admittedly trying to pull in more pubescent boys what with the sexy agent promos. TV Junkie 8:00pm Pick.

8:00pm How I Met Your Mother/The Big Bang Theory CBS - If it's straight up sitcom funny that you want then this hour is your pick for tonight.

9:00pm Heroes NBC - This season has started out solidly, tonight a new hero emerges from New Orleans. TV Junkie 9:00pm Pick.

9:00pm The Mysterious Human Heart PBS/KCET - Part 1 of a 3 part documentary that looks at your ticker. Lots of real-life gore and nausea-inducing footage plus you might learn something (put down that Big Mac).

9:30pm Samantha Who? ABC - Series Premiere. Christina Applegate, I lurve you but this show looks cheap.

10:00pm ??????????? This time slot sucks on Mondays. What do we have: The Bachelor? Journeyman? Any suggestions from readers about what to watch, other than sports, at 10:00pm would be appreciated.

11:30pm The Late Show With David Letterman CBS - Jake Gyllenhaal, 50 Cent

12:35am Late Night With Conan O'Brien NBC - The ambiguous Anderson Cooper
