I've got a whole city to hold down

Talk TV

This has nothing to do with Chicago and little to do with music, but ...

We'd like to take a moment to heartily recommend the new Tavis Smiley late-night talk show, airing here in Chitown at 11:30 pm on WTTW Ch. 11. Tonight's lineup includes KRS-One; upcoming this week are Anthony Anderson of Barbershop renown (Wed.), Kevin Nealon and Mekhi Phifer (Thurs.), and genius documentarian Errol Morris (Fri.). You can also check out Prince's recent appearance--and live performance (with Wendy!)--at the Tavis show site.

Update: The Tavis show also airs locally on WYCC Ch. 20 at 10:30 pm. Something for us tired-ass working stiffs to keep in mind.
