On cable tonight, Bravo has a My Life on the D-List special, Oxygen has the series premiere of Running Russell Simmons, Travel Channel has the series premiere of Mysteries at the Museum, and the news channels will have election coverage.
In cancellation news, Syfy has given Caprica the boot after last week’s episode. The remaining episodes may air sometime in the New Year, but it will not be back for a second season.
Tower Prep (Cartoon Network): New. “Whisper.”
Stargate Universe (Syfy): New. Col. Young is dealing with visions of a dangerous alien attack. Plays again later.
Sons of Anarchy (FX): New. SAMCRO goes on a protection run in Ireland hoping to get their hands on Jimmy, so they can find out why he has been lying to them about Abel. Runs 63 minutes.

Too bad about Caprica – but not surprising. I started out watching it – but gave up after a few episodes. In spite of a stellar cast, the characters just didn’t interest me. Nobody I cared about – and most (all) behaved really stupidly.
