It’s that time of year again, when television has become sufficiently slim pickings and my holiday schedule has grown full enough that I have to leave you all to your own television scheduling devices until the early days of 2011. I hope the season finds you all as well as can be and that you’ve got good things to look forward to in the next week and a half and beyond. And finally, thank you for reading and participating; writing this would be no fun without all of you out there in internet-land. Here’s your Wednesday night TV for the last time in 2010:
8:00pm: “The 12th Annual A Home for the Holidays” on CBS
“Top Ten Monks” on HBO2. I don’t get HBO2 and I’m very sad about that because this title is infuriatingly intriguing.
“Human Target” on Fox
“Undercovers” on NBC
9:00pm: “I’ll Do Anything” on BBCA
“Man vs. Food” on Travel
“Million Dollar Money Drop” on Fox. I watched this and while the premise is interesting, the length of time they draw out each question goes beyond dramatic tension and right on into excruciatingly annoying territory. I can’t watch it because it makes me want to throw things at the TV.
“Mythbusters” on Discovery. 8th season finale.
“Throwdown with Bobby Flay” on Food Network. 9th season premiere.
“Untold Stories of the E.R” on TLC
9:30pm: “Dog the Bounty Hunter” on A&E
10:00pm: “1000 Ways to Die” on Spike TV
“24/7: Penguins/Capitals” on HBO
“Celebrity Rehab with Dr.Drew” on VH1
“E! True Hollywood Story: Gwyneth Paltrow” on E. In case you needed an extra dose of insufferable tonight.
“Psych” on USA. Fifth season finale.
“Storage Wars” on A&E
“Top Chef” on Bravo
“Untold Stories of the E.R” on TLC. Fourth season finale.
