What to watch on Thursday, December 15...
Ladies and gentlesirs, please refrain from watching television until after your French horn lessons. At which point please proceed to watch EVERYTHING:
Person of Interest
Reese and Finch are baffled when The Machine spits out four different numbers. Relax guys, it's called multi-tasking. Deal with it.
ORIGINAL SPECIAL, 9pm, ABC
The Year with Katie Couric
Tonight Katie Couric teams up with the magazine version of Katie Couric (People) to bring us a round-up of 2011's most notable events. These events include important things like Kim Kardashian's wedding as well as boring, dumb things like the collapse of the world economy, various Middle Eastern revolutions, and the death of Osama bin Laden.
SEASON 5 FINALE, 10pm, USA
The season all comes down to this, Michael's biggest CIA mission yet. I don't know what that mission is yet, it's a secret (typical CIA stuff). But while Michael's dealing with it, Sam and Fiona have to make sure evil Anson doesn't cause too much trouble. Good luck with that, Sam and Fiona.
Tonight Jane looks into the death of a Jewish diamond dealer (I'm guessing he was murdered, but I've been wrong about these things in the past.) Later on, Matt decides to celebrate when he receives a big job. Celebrate while you still can, Matt, you big charmer.
SEASON 7 FINALE, 10pm, FX
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
In the second part of last week's reunion episode, the gang attempts to create some revisionist history about their high school experiences. And then after that... oh no! The season's over already?
Uh-oh, it's a bad night for Jane when he nearly drowns while investigating the murder of a fireman. But unlike most near-drowning victims, his recovery includes amnesia and the unwelcome return of his con-artist persona Patrick Jane, who we all know is the mental-est mother-father in town.
