MONDAY (12/21)
  • Little People, Big World (TLC, 8pm):  “Amy fears Matt is having a midlife crisis when he purchases two pricey cars when he still has to pay off their big home remodel.” She learned about this “midlife crisis” thing from watching Jon & Kate Plus Eight.
  • The Closer (TNT, 9pm):  Season finale. “Fritz grows weary of being neglected by Brenda.” Rumor has it he’s been hooking up with Sally Field on the side.
  • Men of a Certain Age (TNT, 10pm):  “Joe swings long in his efforts to bond with his son by teaching the youngster the art of golfing.” Tiger Woods’ hiatus has forced a lot of fathers to step up.
TUESDAY (12/22)
  • Scrubs (ABC, 9pm):  “As J.D.‘s teaching job at Sacred Heart comes to an end, he finds he still hungers for approval.” Unfortunately, he’ll have to live with yet another snub.
  • Outer Space Astronauts (Syfy, 9pm):  “Ka’ak throws a party when the crew reaches a boring part of space, but the alien cocktails come with consequences.” The green stuff they were drinking wasn’t exactly Midori.
  • Full Throttle Saloon (truTV, 10pm):  “Coolio and Naughty by Nature miss their plane and might not make it in time to perform at the bar.” But they’ll still get their reality show checks, right?


  • Dog the Bounty Hunter (A&E, 9pm):  “Dog and Beth and the team gather at their home for the holiday to reminisce.” Remember that time when Dog made those racially-offensive remarks? Oh, that seemed like yesterday…
  • Steven Seagal Lawman (A&E, 10pm):  “Steven Seagal participates in the rebuilding of a home for a family affected by Hurricane Katrina.” He splits the 2x4s with his own hands.
  • Jonas Brothers (E!, 10pm):  “A profile of the Jonas Brothers, featuring remarks by people close to the pop trio.” Taylor Swift will contribute a new song for the special.


THURSDAY (12/24)
  • It’s a Wonderful Life (NBC, 8pm):  “Frank Capra’s wondrous classic stars Oscar nominee James Stewart as a small-town banker who learns what life would have been like if he’d never been born.” There’d be ugly fights between NBC and TBS over A Christmas Story.
  • 100 Greatest Songs of the 90s (VH1, 7pm):  “Part 1 of 5. Nos. 100 through 81 are featured.” VH1 will cover songs from the last 10 years once they figure out a name for the decade.
  • Raising the Bar (TNT, 8pm):  “Jerry’s moral compass is tested when his client’s testimony against a rapist might be utterly untrue.” False accusations like that could get a show canceled.


FRIDAY (12/25)
  • Dirty Dancing (marathon) (TV Guide, 12pm-12am):  You know why no one puts Baby in a corner? They can’t. She’s like the wind!
  • ‘Til Death (FOX, 8pm):  “Kenny (J.B. Smoove) gets a job at a shopping-mall Santa, and he pleases kids more than their parents.” I don’t think that’s as bad it sounds…
  • ‘Til Death (FOX, 9pm):  “Joy makes friends with an ex-girlfriend of Eddie’s, and it turns out that she isn’t over him.” And we all thought everybody loved Raymond.


SUNDAY (12/27)
  • The Sound of Music (ABC, 7pm):  “Oscar-winning adaptation (restored to its original length) of the classic Rodgers and Hammerstein musical stage hit.” The von Trapp family will later compete with winner for ultimate bragging rights.
  • Keeping Up with the Kardashians (E!, 10pm):  “Kim’s lying ways catch up with her.” Hah - Quick Trim my ass!
  • Everest: Beyond the Limit (Discovery, 10pm):  “Former NASA astronaut Scott Parazynski takes on the mountain.” He naively thought the mountain was much smaller based on his view up above.
