It’s been a long couple of days around my house, but as with any dark stretch, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Christmas Eve is only 20 days away, and that will be a magical event, no matter how you look at it. Let’s see what’s on television tonight to help us relax.
There is one Christmas special that I simply MUST watch year after year because it’s such an epic level of nostalgia, and that show is Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. It doesn’t matter how many times I’ve watched it—I still adore it each and every time. The Abominable Snowman, the way the original soundtrack is slightly crackly and it never seems to get better, and the way Rudolph falls in love. Regardless of why you love this classic, you can’t deny that it makes you feel a little happy every year.
In this special, the reindeer with the incandescent nose guides Santa’s sleigh through the storm.
To watch the ultimate story of triumphing over one’s differences, tune into CBS at 8/7c.
I’ll also be watching The Voice, Hart of Dixie, Emily Owens M.D., The Mindy Project, Go On, New Girl, and Ben and Kate.
Jump with us to see else we think you should watch.
I really enjoy Happy Endings. The characters always seem like they have known each other their entire lives, but we saw last episode how most of them met. It was a hilarious Real World meeting, where Brad hated Jane at first, which caused a lot of tension for a bit. Penny had to work hard to keep from Alex the fact that she’d once had feelings for Dave—and she wasn’t sure she didn’t still have feelings. It all worked out in the end, of course…all in hilarious stylings as usual.
On tonight’s episode, “P & P Romance Factory,” Penny meets a terrific new guy, Pete (guest star Nick Zano, 2 Broke Girls, What I Like About You), but her frantic attempt to hide the fact that she’s wearing a prescription helmet because of her concussion really limits their potential romance; Jane, as always, tries too hard to break into the “boys’ club” at the car dealership and enlists Brad to be her “trophy wife”; and Max and Dave’s fist bump issues bring back painful childhood memories. Rob Corddry (The Daily Show, Hot Tub Time Machine) also guest stars.
See the sexy Nick Zano and laugh along with me tonight on ABC at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Happy Endings @ Clicker.
I’ll also be watching/DVRing Raising Hope, Ben & Kate, The New Normal, Leverage, Sons of Anarchy, Rizzoli & Isles, & Flashpoint.
Tonight is the 90-minute season finale of Sons of Anarchy. Last week, way too much happened to recap in a few sentences. The Sons unanimously voted to strip Clay of his patch, but Bobby was the one opposing vote to keep him from meeting Mr. Mayhem. Jax, reeling from the vote, attacked Clay and tried to kill him. Later, he sought the advice of Pope, who suggested he get someone else to take care of his problem. Meanwhile, Tara was interviewed by the cops for her role in Otto’s killing of Pamela. Then, Pamela’s brother, a retired US Marshall, also showed up to unofficially interrogate her.
I can’t see us making it through tonight’s episode without at least one person dead. Will the club be able to come back together under Jax, or has Clay left them divided with questioning loyalties? Will Jax have someone take out Clay, or will Clay get his new club off the ground and go after the Sons? Will Pamela’s brother seek his revenge on Tara, or will she leave town for her new career? So many questions, but If I could hope for one thing to happen, it would be that they finally kill off Clay, as that should have happened at the end of last season!
On tonight’s episode, “J’ai Obtenu Cette,” Jax makes a deal and rids himself of old problems.
See all the drama tonight on FX at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Sons of Anarchy @ Clicker.
