Saturday Night Live (NBC, Saturday) – I’m not sure which I’m looking forward to more in this Jimmy Fallon-hosted episode: “Jarret’s Room 2011” or the Tebow sketch, where the Broncos QB runs into Jesus in the locker room. Scratch that, definitely “Jarret’s Room 2011.” BRING BACK GOBI.
Extreme Home Makeover (ABC, Friday) – If you were waiting for Warming Glow’s seemingly-inevitable “Extreme Home Makeover Has Been Cancelled” post, well: “Extreme Home Makeover” has been cancelled. (Do you still want to punch Ty Pennington because of how he was EVERYWHERE in 2005? I know I do.)
The Life & Times of Tim (HBO, Friday) – HBO’s most anonymous show begins its third season tonight.
Monty Python (IFC, Saturday) – There’s not much on TV during this pre-Christmas/Hanukkah/Whatever weekend, so don’t bother trying to convince yourself to care about the CMA Country Christmas; just watch Monty Python and the Holy Grail and Life of Brian instead. You won’t feel like you’ve wasted your life as much.
Christmas Comes Home to Canaan (Hallmark, Saturday) – Finally…
Allen Gregory (FOX, Sunday) – The worst ever animated show to ever air on Fox Sunday nights ever ends this week. That’s it. Sorry, Jonah.
Alvin and the Chipmunks (FX, Sunday) – I hear it’s David Cross’ favorite movie.
Dexter/Homeland (Showtime, Sunday) –I’m curious to see how “Homeland” is going to set itself up for season two. Its premise makes it seem like a one-and-done show, but because it’s been so good, it deserves the benefit of the doubt for a successful sophomore year. Or it’ll run for 12 years like “Dexter” and destroy its credibility.
