What to Watch Tonight: American Horror Story and the Premieres of I Hate My Teenage Daughter and The Exes

What to watch on Wednesday, November 30...

As you finish knitting me my brand-new winter scarf, please enjoy the following programs, which you can listen to while focusing most of your attention on that scarf. Hurry, my neck is cold!

10pm, FX
American Horror Story
Now that AHS has answered tons of questions about what exactly is up with the Murder House and its various ghosts, it's time to start barreling toward a (hopefully) memorable finale. Tonight sees the arrival of one of L.A.'s most famous murder victims, the Black Dahlia (Mena Suvari, bringing Ryan Murphy's Alan Ball copycat casting to an even 1,000).

SERIES PREMIERE, 9:30pm, Fox
I Hate My Teenage Daughter
Fox's new sitcom may have the worst title on television (negativity breeds negativity!), but the continued employment of Jaime Pressly should always be celebrated. The premise: Two single-mom best friends struggle to raise their mean-girl daughters; tonight's opener involves the moms grounding their daughters for locking another student in the school bathroom.

10pm, USA
Psych
William Shatner appears tonight as Juliet's estranged deadbeat father with an irregular speech tempo. But will he... successfully reconnect with his... daughter, or will... he fall back into his... con-man ways?

SERIES PREMIERE, 10:30pm, TV Land
The Exes
TV Land continues its efforts to reduce the number of reruns it airs in favor of new shows that feel like reruns. The newest Hot in Cleveland lead-out is The Exes, a show about two divorced dudes (including Donald Faison) whose lawyer (Kristen Johnston) is also their landlord. That'll do, TV Land.

HOLIDAY SPECIAL, 8pm, NBC
Christmas in Rockefeller Center
Talk about Christmas Creep! It's not even December yet! Aack, what a world. Anywho Al Roker hosts this ceremonial lighting of the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree. Musical performers include the Radio City Rockettes, Faith Hill, Justin Bieber, Michael Bublé, Tony Bennett, and, as per federal law, Cee Lo Green.

ORIGINAL SPECIAL, 8pm, Science
Trek Nation
Ever since Syfy jumped right off a cliff into an ocean of wishy-washy, the Science channel has really stepped up to assert its nerd credentials. Here's a two-hour special on the history and legacy of the Star Trek universe, with talking-head commentary from no less than George Lucas, J.J. Abrams, Seth MacFarlane, and a starship full of Star Trek alumni. "Make it so." —The French one.
