What to Watch Tonight: Person of Interest and the Season Finales of Burn Notice and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia

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:

9pm, CBS
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
Burn Notice
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.

10pm, NBC
Prime Suspect
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?

10pm, CBS
The Mentalist
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.

X Factor, Peron of Interest, Prime Suspect, and I'm even going to catch that repeat of The Secret Circle. We all know just how good that episode the CW is airing tonight ("Slither") was. And I mean really good!!!



Price knows it! :)

After some reflection, and a Danon nonfat yogurt ("Danon, it's better than yogurt!"--now where's my paycheck? ;). I deleted my Chelsea Handler rant. Although I hate the bitch, it was harsh as hell and probably a bit too offensive (even for me). If you read it, you know what I'm talking about.



If NBC cancels Community for Whitney and Chelsea, I'm going to need serious therapy.....

Oh man! I missed the rant. I love rants. And I especially love when they're too harsh and offensive.

Haha. Yeah, you gotta figure it was pretty bad if I deleted my own post. I opened with calling her Skankerella.

I forgot to list Burn Notice above, but I watch the same 4 shows. Get out of my head!

It was actually a post by you a few months ago that got me onto The League. I'm paraphrasing here, but I believe it was along the lines of "The League is one the most unappreciated comedy's on television". Thank Shiva I listened to you. It's hilarious!

That's awesome! I thought season 1 was ok, but it's just gotten better and better ever since. And it recently got renewed for season 4--so the word has spread.

Matt Damon on The Daily Show and Elle Fanning on Leno.. and I'll flip over to Fox at like 7:55 to see who got voted off The X Factor, because seriously, the show shouldn't be longer than 5 minutes..

I had to "like" your comment simply for the X-Factor observation.

I wonder how many of us need to "Flag" these spam messages to get them removed?

So do I! It almost sounds like a joke: "How many TV.com fans does it take to..." ROFL!

Odd... this is one of the rare days that I don't have any shows to watch other than what I've saved on the (almost full) DVR and the Daily Show and Colbert ones that I always watch but don't list it here since it's just a constant/repetitive. There's a lot of other great shows I could add, but I generally try to ignore them because I already have too long a list to view.
