Here's an early reminder that WGUC-FM (90.9) again will air its wonderful Halloween soundtrack, “Tunes From The Crypt,” 6-10 p.m. Monday. Crank it up during trick-or-treat.
FX’s controversial “Over There,” the Iraq war drama, ends its run of 13 new episodes at 10 p.m. today. The war could be over on FX. No official word from the network, but creator Steven Bochco is busy running ABC’s hit “Commander In Chief.”

This could be why CBS hasn’t named a successor to Dan Rather, who left the anchor chair in March: CBS today named Sean McManus to the dual duties of president of CBS News and CBS Sports. Out is Dan Rather's boss for nearly 10 years, Andrew Heyward, whose contract was not renewed. McManus is son of legendary ABC announcer Jim McKay.

Could we see big changes in the CBS Evening News, 60 Minutes or elsewhere?
