Hooray! Last episode of Scrubs EVAR! ... What? It hasn't been canceled yet? Or renewed? So this might just be a season finale, and not a series finale? *Sigh.* Dudes, just let it go. It' s not the same show any more, none of the old characters are on it, and as cute and funny as the new characters are, we'd rather see them go off and be cute and funny on a different show, rather than watch them tromp around the set of Teen Scrubs Jr.

The first of three final specials follows the Doctor to Mars, where he has to save the human race from a spreading infection, in Doctor Who: Waters of Mars (BBCA, 9 PM).
Modern-day renaissance man James Franco is hosting Saturday Night Live (NBC, 11:30 PM) this week. Muse is the musical guest, but I only know who they are because they had a song on the American Eagle Outfitters soundtrack when I worked there.

The preview for the season finale of Survivor (CBS, 8 PM) calls eternally-shirtless Russell the "most evil player ever." I would agree, due to him thinking that he's a king simply because someone dropped some grapes in his mouth.
I'm not sure why, but George Lopez is hosting the special Christmas in Washington (TNT, 8 PM), which features Rob Thomas, Neil Diamond, Mary J. Blige, and Usher.
Kendra: Here Comes Baby (E!, 9 PM) documents the birth of Kendra and Hank's son. Will Hef show up to the delivery room in person?

Gone so soon! The Sing-Off (NBC, 8 PM) season finale features a Boyz II Men reunion. Quick, someone find Nick Lachey some work!
The 5th season finale of The Closer (TNT, 9 PM) airs tonight.

My personal favorite Christmas-themed movie, Christmas Vacation (AMC, 8 PM) may be a good choice for your more cynical family members.
Tonight's episode of Scrubs (ABC, 8:30PM) features what the preview calls "an interracial Hardy Boys parody." Um, should I be offended?
An alternative to the drama of MTV's Teen Mom is I'm Pregnant...And 55 Years Old (Health, 9:30 PM). I can safely say that this mother's biggest problem is probably not finishing high school.
I generally like to stay away from the shows that my sister enjoys, but this season of The Bad Girls Club (Oxygen, 10 PM) is enjoyable due to the presence of a certain bad girl. Look for Natalie to declare that she "runs LA" about every 4.3 seconds, whatever that means.

CBS Special: A Home for the Holidays (CBS, 8 PM) features performances by Faith Hill, Reba McEntire, and the apparently very Christmas-friendly Mary J. Blige. She must have an album coming out.
Of course there's more to see on Real World/Road Rules Challenge: The Sh*t They Should Have Shown (MTV, 10 PM). There's always another former Real Worlder looking to extend their 15minutes.

It's A Wonderful Life (NBC, 8 PM) may be the greatest Christmas story ever told. When I was a kid I always thought it would be cool to have a wicker wheelchair just like Lionel Barrymore's when I get old. They probably don't make them like they used to.
The series finale of Raising the Bar (TNT, 10 PM) airs tonight, following two previously unaired episodes. A sad day, indeed, for Zach Morris.

Even though you'll probably wish you shot both of your eyes out with BB gun after 24 hours of A Christmas Story (TNT, 8 PM 12/24 to 8PM 12/25), it's hard to avoid this holiday classic.
I'm actually kind of liking Scrubs this season, and while tonight just might be a little too cutesy for me, I'm just gonna go with it, because what am I, Oscar the Grouch? Nope, but he is guesting tonight. Tonight features appearances by Elmo, Grover and the aforementioned Oscar, who are all at Sacred Heart for some reason or another. Yay, Grover! I'm so glad they didn't forget about Grover. He usually gets the shaft while Elmo gets all the attention for being younger and furrier or whatever. But tonight it looks like he gets his degree in medicine, or at least gets to wear a stethoscope and lab coat!
It's the season finale of Scrubs, which was supposed to be the series finale and is even titled "My Finale" and might even answer the most pressing question of the series. No, not "will J.D. and Elliot live happily ever after together?", but instead "what the hell is the Janitor's real name?" Seriously. This is more exciting than finding out Mr. Big's true identity.
