After a month of reruns and recaps and specials and sports, television gets back to normal tonight, and my menu is full.

Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow are both back on MSNBC to look at the mess we’re in, on the day that Chrysler sales were seen to have dropped 53 percent and Nobel winner Paul Krugman warned about the potential end of life as we know it.

Meanwhile, over on Milwaukee Public Television‘s Channel 10, the new Michael Wood six-part documentary series The Story of India begins tonight with episodes at 8 and 9 o’clock. Thanks to the TV listings at Zap2it, I see that I can also catch both episodes early Wednesday morning at 2 and 3 a.m.

I may just do that, because tonight at 9:00 on The Travel Channel, the new season of Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations begins. He’s going to Mexico again. It seems like he’s visited Mexico a lot already, but maybe the water doesn’t bother him.

Looking at tonight’s late night lineups, there’s a new Daily Show with NBC’s David Gregory, and a new Colbert Report with CNN’s John King.

Maybe I’ll watch those, maybe I won’t. There’s also David Letterman with Kate Hudson and Glasgow rock band Glasvegas.

All of this is just buildup to the big rebroadcast of today’s Oprah at 11:05 p.m. on ABC7 Chicago. Today was Oprah’s much-anticipated “Falling Off The Wagon” show, and I can’t believe I missed it at 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.

This is what happens when I start writing about pressure cookers and Indian food.
