World Series TV Guide: Game 1

Wednesday, October 28, 2009

CC Sabathia and Cliff Lee will square off in Game 1 tonight, and here are your alternatives:

  • 8 EDT: NBA doubleheader, Hornets at Spurs followed by Jazz at Nuggets (ESPN): It's basketball, if you're into that sort of thing. Floridians can get the Heat game on Sun Sports at 7:30.
  • 8 EDT: It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (ABC): A Halloween classic.
  • 8 EDT: New Adventures of Old Christine (CBS): My mom loves this show, and it has Julia Louis-Dreyfus. That is everything I know about this show.
  • 9 EDT: Modern Family (ABC): Probably the best new comedy this season, Modern Family is a mockumentary-style sitcom featuring three branches of one semi-dysfunctional family. It is quite good, kind of like an Arrested Development meets The Office.
  • 10 EDT: Burn After Reading (Cinemax): Most of my friends were disappointed by this effort from the Coen Brothers, but I think if you go in not expecting a Big Lebowski-sized success, you will be pleasantly surprised by this farce.
And finally, tonight's book recommendation is The Devil in the White City, by Erik Larson. In it, Larson intertwines a history of the building of the 1893 Chicago World's Fair with the tale of H.H. Holmes, a serial killer who preyed on young women during the fair. Larson deftly balances historical storytelling with an examination of a shrewd psycopath who took advantage of his surroundings to build a small business empire and take advantage of skyrocketing demand for cadavers from the burgeoning American medical school system. I'm making my way through this currently, and have enjoyed it thus far.
