Prime Picks

Dollhouse (FOX): New. Echo is having difficulties dealing with the memories of her multiple downloads. Topher figures out something that may lead to something devastating for the future.

Dollhouse (FOX): New. It looks like Alpha, guest star Alan Tudyk (Firefly), is back for revenge. The actives are turning against their handlers. Last week’s Dollhouse double feature actually made me feel disappointed. That’s right, disappointed that it has been canceled. The last couple episodes were pretty good, but last week’s episode continued that upswing and then some. Hope the trajectory continues this week. What about you? What did you think of the last few episodes?

Sanctuary (Syfy): New. Kate’s past is revealed as Magnus has to deal with a local gang lord. Guest starring Michael Shanks (Stargate SG-1). Plays again later. Last week’s episode replays right before.

Solid Selections

Yes, Virginia (CBS): New Special. A young girl writes a letter to the newspaper asking if Santa is real after being told by a friend that he doesn’t.
The Big Bang Theory (CBS): Repeat. In “The Work Song Nanocluster” from last season, Penny’s attempt at a home business gets turned upside down when Sheldon takes over.

Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives (Food Network): Repeat. Guy visits North Pole, Alaska in this replay of the holiday special. Plays again later.

Unwrapped (Food Network): Repeat. See how some of your favorite “Wintertime Treats” are made. Plays again later.
