It's that time of year again -- the time when NBC devotes an entire hour of live television to a gigantic Christmas tree! The 75-year-old, 74-foot tall Norway Spruce from Pennsylvania will get its second life tonight after it was unceremoniously uprooted from nature and plopped above a skating rink, where too many people will congregate in the freezing cold to watch someone flip a giant switch. Ah, the magic of Christmas!
The losers aren't going to look like, well, losers after tonight because it's MAKEOVER WEEK!
Thanksgiving is coming a week late to Bluebell, Alabama, and of course, it isn't quite Thanksgiving, but a wacky and tried down-South celebration of its own accord... obviously.
Relatively fresh off their performance in Bridesmaids and Chynna's stint on Dancing with the Stars, Wilson Phillips is "holding on" to whatever shred of relevance they have left with their new reality show, which brought them to... the TV Guide Network.
Thanksgiving was over yesterday, which means it's time to be merry, snuggle up with a cup of hot chocolate, spend all your money on useless gifts for people you don't really like, and watch all of the Christmas specials on television. What are you waiting for, you Grinch?!
Remember how last year during the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade, as soon as we saw Snoopy soar over NYC's streets, the announcer said, "Snoopy fans will be happy to know that next year, a new Peanuts animated special will be flying your way." No? Well, it doesn't matter anyway -- that new Peanuts special is on tonight, and it's got everything a Peanuts special should.
The description for tonight's episode of American Horror Story is very short, very ominous and will answer a million questions in eight words: "The man in the rubber suit is revealed."
It's that time already! Tonight one of the three finalists can call the ugliest trophy ever created -- ahem, the Mirror Ball trophy -- their own. (Seriously, who okayed the design for this?! It looks like an oversized, glittery microphone/disco ball hybrid that's super awkward to carry. And Tom Bergeron basically said it's cheap.) Hey, at least after this they can relax and eat all the food they want on Thursday!
The second installment of American Masters' two-part look back at the life and work of iconic New York filmmaker Woody Allen picks up in the early '80s, well after all those "early, funny" movies that made him a cinematic force to be reckoned with in the '70s. Part 1, which aired last night on PBS, followed Woody (née Allen Stewart Konigsberg) from his early days writing for TV comics like Sid Caesar to the making of such comedy classics as Love and Death and Annie Hall to his transition into drama with films like Interiors and Stardust Memories.
Tonight is the 2011 American Music Awards! You know... that music awards show that isn't the Grammys or the VMAs and had that super racy Adam Lambert performance back in 2009. So what's in store for tonight?
