Spider-Man accident

Tough times for New York and New Jersey Congressional delegations. Their ranks will be down by three, thanks to the 2010 Census data, out today.

New Jersey loses one seat, and New York loses two dropping the total number to 27, the lowest since 1823. Not good news for the financially strapped state.

So where will the two seats come from? And will politics influence the redistricting? Does a bear sleep in the woods? We'll have the story, tonight at 11.

Also at 11, we're on Broadway, looking at the most expensive production in theatre history, and the most jinxed.

Another serious accident to an actor in the Spider-Man company. And now federal and state regulators are meeting with the producers to talk about safety protocols.

Why does this keep happening? We're exploring that question at 11.

We're also trying to parse the FCC's just-passed "Net Neutrality" proposal, which are supposedly meant to stop broadband companies from interfering with Internet data to their customers.

But some public interest groups claim the FCC plan gives away too much and gives corporations too much leeway. Conservatives say the plan is a kind of "government takeover" of the Web.

We'll present both sides, at 11.

And finally, we have this nugget courtesy of The Education Trust: Nearly a quarter of the nation's recent high school graduates who try to enlist in the military fail the entrance exam. That means they're not getting even the minimum score needed to enlist, and, according to experts, it paints a grim picture of an education system that cranks out graduates who can't do basic math, science or answer reading questions.

Charming.

We'll also have any breaking news of the night, plus Lee Goldberg's AccuWeather forecast, and Scott Clark with the night's sports. I hope you can join Liz Cho and me, tonight at 11.
