What to Watch Tonight: Dancing With the Stars, NCIS, and Covert Affairs

What to watch on Tuesday, November 22...

There's a time for gambling and there's a time for embracing a sure thing. We all know you've been out back playing the dozens all day, so why not take a break and enjoy something that WON'T force you to pawn your jewelry? That's right, I'm talking about some good old-fashioned television.

Dancing With the Stars
Assuming you've mentally recovered from the national devastation that was Nancy Grace's unjust elimination, tune in for tonight's grand finale, in which we'll learn whether Ricki Lake can out-dance, out-shimmy, and out-sass J.R. Martinez and Rob Kardashian. Go Tracy Turnblad!

8pm, CW
In the fittingly titled "Smoked Turkey," Liam's Thanksgiving dinner is almost derailed by the arrival of an unexpected guest (a shirt?), plus Naomi tries to prove her love to Austin. Meanwhile Dixon pursues Adrianna and Ivy tries to work things out with Raj, and then all four of these characters jump off a cliff holding hands because who cares?

8pm, CBS
Things get personal for Tony when his dear old dad is found in a car with a dead body and amnesia. When Tony is taken off the case, he takes matters into his own hands in order to prove his old man's innocence. Or his dad might just end up being a murderer? Don't assume either way, because when you assume you make an "ASS" out of "U" and "ME" and "NCIS."

10pm, FX
Sons of Anarchy
Another day, another frighteningly stressful negotiation with a rival outfit. Tonight SAMCRO must work things out with the Irish Kings. (Note to SAMCRO: Don't immediately try bribing them with potatoes, that would be racist.)

10pm, USA
Covert Affairs
After a CIA analyst is thrown in the slammer for selling secrets, his daughter may or may not be keeping up the family business, and it's up to Annie to keep tabs on her. Meanwhile, Christopher Gorham. But you knew that already.

SEASON 2 FINALE, 10:30pm, Comedy Central
In tonight's Season 2 finale of one of TV's most underrated comedies, the dudes decide to spend Thanksgiving at Hedonism II—but first they must get Blake a passport within six hours. What a bunch of rascals, always getting themselves into pickles. (Kinda wish I had friends.)
