This Week on TV (11/22-11/28)

MONDAY (11/22)

  • Rules of Engagement (CBS, 8:30 P.M.): "A sheepish Jeff asks coworkers to sponsor Audrey's 10K charity run after he's told them not to include him in office fundraisers." To be clear, he didn't want shell out money for things he'd have to eat.
  • Two and a Half Men (CBS, 9 P.M.): "Charlie spends money wildly for his old lover Courtney, who returns after spending three years in prison." Spending money on a woman who can finally relate to him? Priceless.
  • Skating with the Stars (ABC, 9:11 P.M.): "The series opener of an ice-skating competition that pairs celebrities with professional skaters. Contestants include Vince Neil, Bethenny Frankel and Sean Young." That is one motley crew.

TUESDAY (11/23)

  • No Ordinary Family (ABC, 8 P.M.): "Daphne hopes her telepathy will make a good impression on a boy." Not having to ask what he's thinking about? A win-win.
  • Parenthood (NBC, 9 P.M.): "Adam worries about his job following unexpected news from Gordon." He's not sure what a move to Mondays will mean to their operation.
  • The Millionaire Matchmaker (Bravo, 9 P.M.): "Patti works for a woman who graces romance-novel covers." Unfortunately, men who with long, flowing hair and unbuttoned pirate shirts are banned from Patti's club.


  • Hell's Kitchen (FOX, 9 P.M.): "The five remaining contestants prepare and serve their signature dishes in downtown-L.A. food trucks at lunchtime." The chef who finishes second this season will get to run a truck of their own.
  • Biggest Loser: Where are They Now? (NBC, 9 P.M.): "Updates on more than 30 contestants from the first nine seasons of ." Note to self: Don't watch recording until after the holidays.
  • Cougar Town (ABC, 9:30 P.M.): "Ellie and Laurie take issue with Andy's optimism." He thinks ABC's free wine will never end. They're grateful they still have bottles for Thanksgiving.

THURSDAY (11/25)

  • The Town Christmas Forgot (Hallmark, 8 P.M.): "A couple (Lauren Holly, Rick Roberts) and their kids are stranded in a small town during Christmas after their SUV breaks down on a back-road shortcut." Lauren Holly -- the Jim Carrey ex-wife everyone forgot.
  • NBC's People of the Year (NBC, 9 P.M.): "Matt Lauer spotlights notable people of 2010." For clarification: "Notable" people and "fascinating" people are not necessarily the same.
  • The Apprentice (NBC, 10 P.M.): "The candidates are enlisted to write, direct, produce and star in a live sales segment on a home-shopping network. One team have some shop pop when they score a coveted product and a preferred air time." A holiday evening when the competition is in repeats? Score!

FRIDAY (11/26)

  • Victorious (Nickelodeon, 8 P.M.): "Jade and Cat lose a competition at a karaoke club because it was rigged for the club owner's daughter to win." They knew someone would wind up 'victorious,' they just didn't expect it wouldn't be them.
  • TV's Funniest Holiday Moments (FOX, 8 P.M.): " counts down 30 memorable TV holiday moments, including scenes from Cheers, Family Guy, Two and a Half Men and Friends." Of course, Sue Sylvester doesn't find anything particularly memorable -- but she's not one to turn down free air time.
  • Outrageous Food (FOOD, 10 P.M.): "Tom takes on a 10-lb. meatball sandwich at Bartolini's Restaurant in Midlothian, Ill." By the end of the challenge, someone -- or something -- will be reduced to a pile of mush.

SUNDAY (11/28)

  • American Dad (FOX, 9:30 P.M.): "Stan's rich half-brother, Rusty (voice of Lou Diamond Phillips) visits for Thanksgiving. Rusty turns out to be richer than Stan thought he was, leading to something other than brotherly love." I don't think anyone suspected La Bamba would get him this far.
  • The Real Housewives of Atlanta (Bravo, 10 P.M.): "Kandi revamps a song to make it more suitable for Kim." The title? "I Got a New Big Poppa."
  • Bridalplasty (E!, 9 P.M.): "Twelve brides-to-be compete in wedding-themed challenges to win plastic-surgery procedures. In the opener, the ladies move into a mansion and they each create a plastic surgery wish list with a surgeon before taking part in their first challenge." If only Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt could have held out a bit longer...
