Series star Diedrich Bader has a reunion with Drew Carey and “The Drew Carey Show” co-stars Ryan Stiles and Kathy Kinney in the new episode “Bigger Kids, Bigger Problems,” which finds Anna-Kat (Julia Butters) frustrated that the school lunch lady (Kinney) refuses to make some simple eco-friendly changes in the cafeteria. Greg (Bader) recruits a fellow “green” friend (Stiles) to change some minds, but ultimately he has to call in some big environmental guns.
After the shattering loss of the Elders, Mel, Maggie and Macy (Melonie Diaz, Sarah Jeffery, Madeleine Mantock) step up to assume their duties in “Safe Space,” the premiere of Season 2 — which, producers promise, will be “creepier, moodier and sexier” than last season. Despite those new responsibilities, Maggie steals some time to celebrate her birthday with a big party. A mysterious hooded figure attacks the Charmed Ones, who escape through a portal. Rupert Evans also stars.
The National League Championship Series gets under way as the Washington Nationals visit the St. Louis Cardinals to begin this best-of-seven series. Both teams got to the NLCS in dramatic fashion, at least in terms of winning Game 5 of their Divisional Series. The Card’s rode a ten-run first inning to a win over Atlanta. For the Nat’s, a tenth inning grand slam by Howie Kendrick gave the team its first playoff series win since they were known as the Montreal Expos.

That hurdle couldn’t come at a worse time for them, either, because gold prices are spiking, driving a new influx of prospectors into the area.
