Tonight on the Tube: Shrek the Halls, Boston Legal, Frank TV & Nip/Tuck

Bones - Season One on DVDTonight, BBC America has the second season premiere of Life on Mars, BET has the season finale of Keyshia Cole: The Way It Is, and WE has the series premiere of Twister Sisters. The CW has a replay of The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2007.

This is that time of year where there isn’t much in the way of new programming, or what the TV landscape will look like in a couple months if the strike isn’t settled soon.

Prime Picks

Shrek the Halls (ABC): Repeat. Shrek just wants to have a cozy Christmas at home, but Donkey, Puss in Boots and others try to join in the fun and spoil his plans.
Winnie the Pooh and Christmas Too! (ABC): Repeat. Pooh takes his friends’ wish lists to the North Pole so that Santa will get them in time.

House (FOX): Repeat. Last season’s Christmas episode, “Merry Little Christmas,” replays, where Wilson makes a deal with Tritter on House’s behalf and House is none too pleased about it.

Solid Selections

Bones (FOX): Repeat. The Christmas episode from season one, “The Man in the Fallout Shelter,” replays, where Zack cuts into a bone and lets loose a fungus that leaves the team quarantined in the lab over Christmas.
