Bob’s Burgers on Fox at 8:30pm ET. One-hour 8th season fall finale at a special time. Man, they cannot leave this show alone, can they? I swore it was always on before The Simpsons and I’m sure a lot of you did too. Surprise!
Karen Kingsbury’s Maggie’s Miracle: The Most Wonderful Movies of Christmas on Hallmark Movie Channel at 9:00pm ET. This title seems to fit at least three very different television events.
A Royal Christmas Ball on Ion at 9:00pm ET. Original telefilm. I find Ion the most baffling TV network because it’s a lot of stuff that seems gently religious in that way that the “coffeehouse” your friend in college took you to was actually a ministry with guitars but it took you half an hour to figure that out. Yet at the same time they run huge chunks of Law & Order: SVU and Criminal Minds in the evenings most of the time. So it’s 50/50 on whether you’ll get nice, white, upper middle class people having the tiniest of problems that will be solved with love and trust or gruesome murders and sex crimes. Tonight is apparently nice, white, upper middle class people having tiny problems at Christmas time.
The Walking Dead on AMC at 9:00pm ET. 90 minute 8th season fall finale.
Robot Chicken on Adult Swim at 11:30pm ET. Ninth season premiere.
