December 2011 Archives
It's the last day of 2011! Have you seen the terrible New Year's Eve yet? Have you looked through all of our Year in Review galleries yet? Good, let's get to business and figure out what to watch tonight to ring in 2012.
The awkward animated guy who sounds like Ray Romano is back, and we're already three whole episodes in. Fans can appreciate that their beloved show has been granted a third season, especially in the wake of the cancellations of Bored to Death, How to Make it In America and Hung.
Shown as part of PBS's Independent Lens series, Paul Mariano and Kurt Norton's new documentary profiles the vital work being done by the National Film Registry branch of the Library of Congress. Every year since its creation in 1988, the Registry designates 25 movies that are worthy of preservation. Currently there are some 550 movies housed in the organization's archives, including everything from acknowledged classics like Casablanca and The Godfather, to experimental shorts and cartoons like Duck Amuck and Dog Star Man to less high-minded, but extremely popular titles like Groundhog Day and John Carpenter's Halloween.
With every other sitcom in repeats, TV Land's most popular series (and considering how bad the rest of the network's other shows are, it may as well be its only series) is the only game in town for viewers desperate for a few good laughs to distract them from the post-Christmas blues.
I usually think all-stars episodes (or, in many cases, seasons) are pointless and annoyingly pandering, but in the case of Extreme Couponing, I am just really very excited.
Coming off of a pretty solid penultimate episode, The Closer celebrates its Season 7 winter finale tonight one a quiet note... because the episode is named "Silent Partner"! [Rimshot]
First of all, Merry Christmas! Or, if you're Jewish, Happy Sixth Night of Hanukkah! I'm also going to say Happy Holidays to everyone else so that we can all feel great and enjoy the annual Doctor Who Christmas special tonight, regardless of religion or creed or lack thereof. The Doctor would want it that way, I think.
Need a break from all of the holiday-heavy stuff on TV? TLC has you covered with nonstop wedding coverage. Lucky us!
Still have no idea who to vote for to win X Factor, a Pepsi commercial and a $5 million recording contract? Good news: It doesn't matter anymore! Chris Rene, Josh Krajcik and Melanie Amaro are done performing for America's votes, and are ready to win their fancy prizes in the season finale. This is especially good news to all of us who hate X Factor but still have to watch it for compulsive reasons, or because it's our jobs.
Did you think last week's American Horror Story was the season finale? Well, get ready -- it's actually tonight, and it looks like it's going to be even more ridiculous than last week's, which isn't even possible.
