It's A Good Day
Game 1 of the World Series AND the return of Friday Night Lights (if you have DirecTV)? Was there any doubt who would lead off today's Hot Clicks? Unfortunately, Derek Jeter's girlfriend, Minka Kelly, does not appear in tonight's episode (and will appear in only a few episodes this season), so our best chance of seeing her (besides here, here and here) is Fox panning to her during the Phillies-Yankees game. Anyway, the New York Daily News gives Friday Night Lightsfour out of five stars, while USA Today gives it three out of four stars. And for the show's die-hard fans, here's a quiz about Season 1 and here's a look at the women of the show.

Overly Sensitive 'Skins
The Washington Redskins are reaching a new level of patheticness -- and I'm not talking on the field. The team has banned fans from brining signs into FedEx Field. (And make sure you click that link to see some of the signs, especially the first one.) The organization has put forth some b.s. story about how signs are dangerous to other fans and obstruct views. Because, you know, we hear about fans getting injured by signs ALL THE TIME.

Olivia Munn Video Of The Day
I know a lot of you are big fans of G4's Olivia Munn. She appeared on last night's episode of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon (starting at 25:50 mark). Artie Lange also was on the show -- he made Joe Buck jealous by going easy on Fallon -- and they engaged in a friendly game of Ping-Pong (starting at 36-minute mark). (Thanks to Ryan Carroll, of Plymouth, Ind., for the heads up.)
