We continue to inch ever closer to the precipice of television obscurity, the two-to-three week period when networks all but give up on airing new programming in favor of reruns and whatever holiday films they can get on the cheap. We've still got a few new episodes of things you might enjoy tonight, but you might want to start prepping your Netflix queue for next week's inevitable doldrums. Or maybe start in on that video game backlog. Or start actually reading all those books you downloaded to your Kindle but never started. In all three instances, I'm actually talking about myself. I'm so goddamn awful at doing anything. SIGH...
|Inside Story: Santa Clause|
8PM - Biography - Apparently, the Biography channel is under the impression that you have fond enough memories of the 1994 Tim Allen Christmas "classic" The Santa Clause that you would want to watch a two-hour behind-the-scenes look at its making. This is not all that bad of a movie, mind you, but who on earth is really looking to understand the minutae of how Tim Allen found his way into a fat suit and fake beard?
|The Biggest Loser|
9PM - NBC - The two hour live season finale, in which we discover who is the biggest loser. And, also, who lost the most weight. Okay, that wasn't even a zinger. I haven't had my medication today, okay?
9PM - History Channel - In two hours tonight, The History Channel will finally provide definitive proof of the existence of God. Or probably not, actually. At least they'll fill two hours of programming. Of that much I'm certain. Whatever.
9PM - FOX - Schmidt has an office holiday party, and the roommates attend. Christmas shenanigans ensue, I'm to assume.
9:30PM - FOX - Tonight's Christmas episode is a spin on It's a Wonderful Life, in which Jimmy sees a world in which he never meets Hope's mom, played by Bijou Phillips. I'm guessing that world is far less hilarious.
10PM - TBS - Prior to tonight's actual episode of Conan (which features Bob Costas and Nick Frost), a one-hour special of the Best of Conan from 2011 will air. If Masturbating Bear's triumphant return is not on here, I declare shenanigans. Shenanigans!!!!
