What to watch on Wednesday, December 28...
It's not the new year yet, so there's no need to worry about all those diet goals you're about to start working toward. Same goes for your resolution to watch only good things on TV in 2012. For the next few days at least, these things are still fair game:
ORIGINAL SPECIAL, 9pm, TLC
Are you so frugal that you create your own reusable toilet paper? If so, then you are very possibly being featured tonight on TLC's newest economy-relevant documentary special! (Also, I don't think we can be friends, sorry.) Subjects include not only aforementioned reusable toilet paper enthusiasts, but also professional panhandlers and other people who resort to creative measures in their penny-pinching pursuits.
ORIGINAL SPECIAL, 10pm, Showtime

10pm, TV Land
Hot in Cleveland
Tonight the ladies decide to get proactive about finally landing themselves husbands by throwing a dinner party. But you guessed it, there are complications! These include: Roy's mother's hatred of Elka, Victoria's boyfriend who looks and behaves like Sean Hayes, and Melanie's boyfriend's disturbing resemblance to Winnie the Pooh, plus the disturbing omnipresence of detached laughter after every single utterance.
MTV's finest documentary series travels down to the Bayou to profile the wild Theriot family of southern Louisiana. This bunch of hooligans does everything in a classic, no-holds-barred style, including dating, fighting, partying, and ensuring decades of public humiliation by doing those things on national television.
