Chuck Celebrates Christmas
Prison Break's new on TV tonight.
It's officially winter here in Southern California. It's been pouring rain for hours and there are yellow and red leaves whipping around on the ground thanks to the sudden winds. It's a nice change, listening to the rain fall, but I'm glad I'm not out in it. Los Angeles drivers don't do well in heavy rains. A perfect day to stay home and watch TV! (Like I need an excuse.)
TV tonight -- December 15FOX starts the night with the fall finale of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles then the action continues on Prison Break.
NBC is also action packed. It begins with a Christmas Eve hostage taking at the Buy More on Chuck, then Nathan and Peter have a few issues to sort out on Heroes and it's the last episode of My Own Worst Enemy so don't start watching it now.
ABC tries for a win with a newer Christmas special, I Want a Dog for Christmas, Charlie Brown, then it's an extended edition of 20/20 that follows a group of students as they prepare for their high school musical.
The CW delivers reruns of Gossip Girl and One Tree Hill.
CBS has lots of laughs with The Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother, Two and a Half Men, and Worst Week, then it's 'there goes the neighborhood' when street gangs move in on CSI: Miami.
