    I’ll be tuning in to Burn Notice tonight. That show is awesome. And next week I am freeing my schedule for Minute To Win It which airs on December 7th at 8/7c. It’s the holiday edition so you know its going to be GOOD

    Justin, Burn Notice is a good choice, as it is pretty awesome, but I’d have to differ on your choice for next week, holiday edition or not.
