MONDAY (12/28)
  • Dog Whisperer (Nat. Geographic, 8pm):  “Cesar goes Down Under to help some Aussies tame their problem pooches.” Dingoes aren’t the only things babies should be worried about.
  • Hoarders (A&E, 10pm):  “A woman who lost custody of her son because of her hoarding also risks losing her two daughters.” Well, that would help lighten her load a bit.
  • Men of a Certain Age (TNT, 10pm):  “Joe opts to dine with his bookie instead of attending a function.” He wanted to talks odds over the 2-for-1 special.
TUESDAY (12/29)
  • Rudolph’s Shiny New Year (ABC, 8pm):  “Red Skelton narrates, while Frank Gorshin and Morey Amsterdam lend their voices to this tale about the reindeer on a mission for Santa.” Someone’s got to pick out Mrs. Claus’ gift.
  • Make Room for Multiples (Disc. Health, 8:30pm):  “A family with 3-year-old triplet boys welcomes another set of twin boys.” The episode will also include a farewell to mom, who opts to take an indefinite hiatus.
  • Better Off Ted (ABC, 9:30pm):  “Veronica slacks off at work when her magician boyfriend Mordor resurfaces.” A prestidigitator’s magic hands are hard to resist.


  • Eastwick (ABC, 10pm):  “Joanna helps Penny find closure.” Too bad the viewers won’t get any of that.
  • Clean House (Style, 10pm):  “A shopaholic mom invites her daughters and grandchildren to move into her cluttered home.” They’ll be allowed to live rent free in exchange for maid services.
  • The Imploders (TLC, 10pm):  Series premiere. “The Kelly family travel to Phoenix to implode a 10-story tower that was built in 1972 in the opener of the unscripted series that follows them as they bring down dilapidated buildings all over the country.” Family members that implode together become reality show wrecks together.


THURSDAY (12/31)
  • Strange Sex (TLC, 10pm):  “Four people with various sexual disorders and anomalies are profiled in this look at the impact and treatment of their conditions.” Will likely ruin your New Year’s Eve buzz. DVR for later.
  • New Year’s Eve with Carson Daly (NBC, 10pm):  “ rings in 2010 with the sixth annual year-end celebration from Times Square in New York City. Slated performers include Green Day and Rihanna.” It’s the one time of year Carson’s seen before midnight.
  • Jersey Shore (MTV, 10pm):  “The roommates grow closer following Snooki’s violent encounter at the bar and she finally feels like she belongs.” Nothing signals bonding like a videotaped beat down.


FRIDAY (1/1)
  • Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging (Nickelodeon, 8pm):  “Georgia Groome stars as a 14-year-old girl who keeps a diary about the trials and tribulations of being a teen.” I now wonder if I’m too old to read Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret. again.
  • Scrubs (ABC, 9pm):  “Turk begins the hunt for a new best friend.” Unfortunately, nothing pairs better with Chocolate Bear than Vanilla Bear.
  • Disaster House (DIY, 9pm):  “Rock icons from the ‘80s trash a house.” Thirty years of booze, cigarettes and Aquanet are bound to take a toll on a home.


SUNDAY (1/3)
  • Iron Chef America (Food, 8pm):  “ shows up and informs the chefs that the White House garden will be their secret ingredient.” The final meals will be highly scrutinized by the Secret Service.
  • Keeping Up With the Kardashians (E!, 10pm):  “Kris takes away Bruce’s ATM card, which leads him to demand financial independence.” Unfortunately, spin-offs for stepdads of reality show stars don’t exactly fall on trees.
  • Secrets of Aspen (VH1, 10pm):  “A docu-soap look at the lives of six single women in the ski-resort town kicks off.” Rumor has it Brooke Mueller may join the cast as the seventh lady.
