What to watch on Monday, November 21...

Good news and bad news about this week: For a short week isn't it also the looooongest? Oh well, get excited about the upcoming holiday by watching these festive treats!

8pm, CBS
How I Met Your Mother
Has this show gotten kind of heavy lately? Don't get me wrong, it's great! But still. Dang, last week was a bummer. Anyway tonight Ted and Barney decide to make life-altering decisions and Robin attempts to convince Lily and Marshall not to move away. [sad-face emoticon]

SERIES PREMIERE, 9pm, ABC
You Deserve It
I agree! You definitely deserve it, but "it" is not this. But if YOU think you deserve a Chris Harrison-hosted game show in which contestants attempt to win money for someone other than themselves, then this is definitely it. In this premiere installment, a woman plays on behalf of her best friend, a widowed mother of two. [sad-face emoticon]

9pm, Fox
House
Tonight House runs aground of propriety when he insists on solving the veritable cold case of a deceased 4-year-old girl. Plus Park attempts to get Chase to admit why he's so handsome? Don't let up, Park! America needs to know!

8:30pm, CBS
2 Broke Girls
David Sedaris, call your lawyers. Tonight Max and Caroline take part-time jobs as Christmas elves at the mall. Hijinks! Poor language choices! Lessons! Just your typical 2 Broke Girls Christmas.

10pm, ABC
Castle
Tonight's case is another one to be filed under "Yikes!" When a sniper goes on a city-wide murder rampage, Beckett must overcome her PTSD to help stop the madman (or madwoman?). Lighthearted stuff, basically.

9:30pm, HBO
Enlightened
A nightmare helps Amy come to terms with her feelings for Levi, but she also finds herself closer to Tyler over their common loneliness. Elsewhere, Dougie gets a promotion and Amy attempts to set him up with a coworker... to presumably unbearable results?
