...A reminder that Comedy Central should be repeating the smackdown of Jim Cramer and CNBC reruns again tonight on "The Daily Show" (Comedy, 8 p.m.)
In fact, the "debate" between Jon Stewart and Jim Cramer was so one-sided that you almost had the inclination to feel a bit sorry for Cramer. I say "almost," because common sense kicks in and you realize they are getting exactly what they deserve.
TV journalism, for want of a better term, has veered toward the sensationalism practiced by the likes of CNBC and other news outlets for years. Perhaps this is our message to them that we're mad as hell and not going to take it anymore.
RIP RON SILVER: The actor, who had memorable guest runs on shows such as "The West Wing," died Sunday at 62 from esophageal cancer.
Silver was an interesting guy, having turned from staunch Democrat to staunch Republican after the 9/11 attacks, something of a real rarity in Hollywood. Yet he managed to plead a pretty convincing case for the left during his Emmy-nominated run as President Bartlet's campaign advisor on "The West Wing."
MONDAY'S BEST BETS: NBC is in reruns tonight, but everything else is new.
"Dancing With The Stars" (ABC, 8 p.m.) kicks off in full swing tonight, followed by a new episode of "Castle" at 10 p.m.
The always-fun Judy Greer guest stars on "House" (Fox, 8 p.m.) as a woman who thinks her cat can predict death. It's followed by a new "24" at 9 p.m.
Orlando Jones guest stars on "Rules of Engagement" (CBS, 9:30 p.m.), which follows a whole new night of CBS sitcoms and precedes a new "CSI: Miami" in which a flight attendant is murdered. For the episode, David Caruso is switching to aviator sunglasses to whip off dramatically.
"Gossip Girl" and "One Tree Hill" are both new on the CW, beginning at 8 p.m.
"Secret Life of an American Teenager" (ABC Family, 8 p.m.) does a flashback as to how the girl hooked up with her baby daddy at band camp. "Then, there was this one time I was at band camp, where..." Just kidding. It's followed by a new "Kyle XY" at 9 p.m.
"Saving Grace" (TNT, 10 p.m.) is new as well.
Finally, Sci Fi is airing a one-hour behind-the-scenes special on "Battlestar Galactica" tonight at 10 p.m. in anticipation of this Friday's finale.
