Comment: Helen Bach used to write this column as Television Lite, but she is on hiatus, thereby proving that writing nonstop for year after year after year can get wearying! Particularly in the week leading up to Labor day where all you can find is reruns. So what we got here? PaoloNutin on Kimmell, reruns on Fallon, Brad Paisley on the View. But the keeper here is Michael Cera on Letterman. Cera -the Superbad actor who made unassuming a lifestyle choice, has a pretty good album just released, True That,  which you can stream (or boy) here and may I recommend the Blaze Foley cover “Clay Pigeons”.
