I hate to break it to you, but I don't have any recommendations for you today. Nothing on the rock calendar is catching my eye, and with formerly great shows like Heroes (9 p.m., NBC) and Weeds (10 p.m., Showtime) still slacking, there's little to be enthusiastic about on screen either.
Unless you like football, in which case the Steelers-Ravens game tonight (8:30 p.m., ESPN) should be awesome. (By the way, check out John Ross' well-put slam of ESPN over at The Riot Act. His analogy between MTV/MTV2 and ESPN/ESPNews is right on. Also worth reading: ESPN Ombudsman LeAnne Schreiber's take on the topic.)
Why not steal away from pop culture for a few minutes tonight and take some time to get educated about tomorrow's election? Ross interviewed mayoral candidates Michael Coleman (the one who is a douche to me in this video clip) and Bill Todd (the one who wears David Byrne's suit from Stop Making Sense in his TV ads) for this week's paper, asking them questions that our readership (that means you) are likely to care about.
Our corporate neighbors at The Dispatch have more on the mayoral race and the rest of the issues. Their voter guide and Franklin County rundown should be helpful in figuring out where you stand.
Don't say I never wrote about anything relevant.
