Thursday Night Football is over on CBS, so its Monday and Thursday night schedules settle into their regular (slightly retooled) lineups. The funny website The Beaverton brings its not-as-funny TV version back for a second season, and if you remember Sing Along with Mitch and Singalong Jubilee, you might enjoy an updated version on Friday nights for the next five weeks.
