News & Notes

Get Community Season Two on DVD at AmazonTonight, ABC has a CMA Country Christmas special.

Over on cable, A&E has an I Love You To Death special, CMT has the first season finale of Top Secret Recipe, Discovery Channel has the series premiere of Weed Wars, E! has a Lady Gaga: Marry the Night special, and TLC has the series premiere of D.U.I.

Prime Picks

Community (NBC): New. Jeff and Shirley are bonding over foosball. Annie claims that someone broke in and stole Abed’s limited edition Dark Night DVD after she accidentally breaks it.
Parks & Recreation (NBC): New. Leslie, Ben and Chris have to finally deal with what is going on.

Bones (FOX): New. Multiple boxes full of remains are found in the dead letter section at the post office. Booth gets some bad news from his grandfather and Brennan tries to help him deal with it. Tina Marjorino returns as Agent Genny Shaw. This is a very good episode that gives David Boreanaz lots to work with. It was weird to watch Brennan attempt to be the empathetic one after hearing the news, but I’m just going to go with whatever comes for her from now on, however inconsistent her character’s growth is.

Burn Notice (USA Network): New. Sam has a surprising reunion. Jesse and Fiona are on a financial errand to the Cayman Islands. Plays again later.

Other Options

  • Santa Claus Is Coming to Town (ABC): Repeat. The animated holiday classic replays.
  • The Office (NBC): New. Robert California is looking for a job for his wife at the office. Maura Tierney guest stars as his wife.

Sports Notes

  • ESPN has Thursday Night College Football with West Virginia at South Florida.
  • ESPN2 has doubleheader college basketball action.
  • NFL Network has Thursday Night Football action with the Philadelphia Eagles at the Seattle Seahawks.

Late Night
