So, I guess my prediction that Game 6 of the World Series would be held yesterday was a bit off; in fact, it looks like it's going to wind up being played tonight, thanks to rain, meaning that if Game 7 winds up being necessary, it'll be played tomorrow. Sucks if you're Chuck, which has its season premiere tomorrow as well!
Actually, it's kind of terrible for all of tonight's shows, since they're all going to have to face off against Game Six as well. But at least if you're not a baseball fan you'll have something else to tune into, and at least we're spared from another episode of The X-Factor. Also, Charlie Brown! Also, Beavis and Butthead's new show premieres on MTV!
FOX 5/8 PM: So, disregard my listing of Game 6 for yesterday; this is actually Game 6, since yesterday's game got rained out. Which is bad news for all of the Thursday sitcoms, I guess, and possibly even worse news for tomorrow's premiere of Chuck, which will find itself facing a World Series game if this goes to a clincher.

ABC 8 PM: Faced with a World Series game as competition, ABC rolls right over and airs a 30-year-old Halloween special.
|It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia|
FX 10 PM: "The gang plays the most twisted board game ever; Dee and Dennis face Mac, Charlie and Frank." This show would have to go pretty far to top itself when it comes to the "most twisted" anything, honestly.
ABC 9 PM: "Owen organizes a baseball game against Seattle Presbyterian; Lexie is unable to control her emotions when she sees Mark with a new woman; Alex fights for Zola; Richard talks to Meredith and Bailey about their feud." Will girls cry? Tune in tonight for the exciting answer!
|The Big Bang Theory|
CBS 8 PM: "An attractive comic book artist tests Leonard and Priya's relationship; Sheldon tries to scare his friends." Attractive comic book artist? Pshh, those are about as rare as attractive movie reviewers. Oh, wait.
|Person of Interest|
CBS 9 PM: "A new person of interest, a beautiful and resourceful woman, leaves Reese captivated." Yeah, I mean, I know that I look for a woman's resourcefulness when I'm wooing the ladies. "Could you provide for us if we were trapped on a desert island?" I ask them. Thus far, my search has been a lonely one.
CBS 10 PM: "When the team travels to a resort town to investigate a police chief's murder, Lisbon runs into her brother (Henry Thomas), who is now a bounty hunter." Poor Henry Thomas. The world was your oyster after E.T., and now you're guest-starring on 10 PM dramas! At least it's not cable, I suppose.
NBC 8 PM: "When an anonymous personality test that Britta runs on the group indicates that one of them is severely troubled, she asks Jeff to help her identify the person." I'm betting it's Chevy Chase. Not his character, I'm betting it's actually Chevy Chase.
|Parks and Recreation|
NBC 8:30 PM: "April and Andy throw a Halloween party, to Ben's dismay; Tom promotes his company while emceeing a campaign event for Leslie; Ron and Ann give Andy and April an unusual gift."
NBC 9 PM: "Erin tries to put on a Halloween party that will please both Andy and Robert California; Jim and Pam fight about the existence of ghosts; Dwight bonds with Robert California's son."
NBC 9:30 PM: "Whitney asks Mark to help her prove Alex uses a condescending tone; when Alex's brother visits, old rivalries lead to fisticuffs." Oh, man, this is certainly Seinfeld-level territory we're venturing into.
NBC 10 PM: "While Jane investigates the death of a woman in the park, Duffy and Evrard look for the victim's stepfather; Jane and her father celebrate an important date." Who names someone Evrard?
FX 10:30 PM: "Kevin struggles with getting older; Ruxin gets Rafi's help; Taco finds a market for Kevin and Jenny's wedding cocktail napkins; Pete learns a new sexual position."
