There's only one show on my radar screen for tonight, and it's at Carabar, 115 Parsons Ave. Columbus import Pink Reason and Alabama's Thomas Function are on a tour that stops in Columbus tonight. Joining the lo-fi pair will be underappreciated garage rockers Grave Blankets. I haven't made the most of my Rocktober yet, so hopefully I can make it out for some of this. But I'm already a lame old man when it comes to rock shows, especially Monday night rock shows so it's more likely I will...

...watch some of tonight's television highlights. For instance, The Boondocks returns to Cartoon Network's Adult Swim tonight at 11:30. Check out this clip of the outrageous first five minutes to see why this show is essential viewing. And read this Atlanta Journal-Constitution story for more.

Monday Night Football (ESPN) is a reliable option even with tonight's lopsided Cowboys at Bills, as is Heroes (9 p.m., NBC), which I'm not totally in love with this season but I'm not ready to dump just yet.

Also, VH1's Hip-Hop Honors, whatever that is, is on at 10 p.m. All I know is Tracy Morgan is hosting.
