7:30/6:30c ESPN
LeBron James takes his talents to sleepy St. Petersburg, Fla., for a final preseason tune-up against the rival Orlando Magic, who may have been sending mighty Miami a message by warming up for the season with six straight lopsided October wins. Both teams have retooled since playoff losses to the Celtics and appear to be on a season-long collision course for conference and Sunshine State superiority. While James and Chris Bosh were high-profile Heat pickups, Orlando bolstered its backcourt with Chris Duhon and ex-Heat guard Quentin Richardson. — Roger Leister

Real Time with Bill Maher

In any case, Palin will no doubt be a topic of conversation when Johnston appears on tonight's show, which also features director Rob Reiner, reporter Jake Tapper and commentator Nicolle Wallace. — Joe Friedrich

But not all is bad news for Todd, as he does get the chance to oversee the filming of his commercial for the energy drink. And that's not the least bit difficult to swallow. — Ray Stackhouse
