As I sit here with my cup of tea and sort through the interwebs to start my day, I notice that it’s apparently snowing in large sections of the country today. Yeah, it’s all pretty and novel now, but in a few weeks when it’s all grey slush on the side of the road that freezes overnight to try and make you slip (yes, snow has evil intentions, just trust me here) you won’t be so chipper about it. Me? I’m just annoyed that it’s a bit too chilly to wear flip flops in North Cuba today. Here’s your Monday night TV:
8:00pm: “90210” on The CW
“American Country Awards” on Fox. Wait, didn’t the CMT awards air a couple weeks ago on ABC? How many Country music oriented awards shows are there?

“Little People, Big World” on TLC
“The Sing-Off” on NBC. Second season premiere.
“Skating With the Stars” on ABC
8:30pm: “Little People, Big World” on TLC. Series finale. I guess all of you interested in gawking at the normal lives of little people will just have to satisfy your curiosity with “The Little Couple” now. How unfortunate.
