What's On? Tuesday, 12/29/09

After a Christmas-induced lack of updates, What’s On? is back!  Not much new worth checking out tonight, but you MUST watch BETTER OFF TED tonight.  Aside from the Kennedy Center Honors, it’s like the only NEW show on TV, and I’m sure you’ll love it!

The 8:00 Hour –

ABC airs RUDOLPH’S SHINY NEW YEAR which I’m sure is about Rudolph and New Year’s Eve. Over on CBS, NCIS is a rerun of the episode where the team gets involved in a gang-war and Gibbs reveals a secret.

FOX is showing a movie – THE BENCHWARMERS, featuring Rob Schneider, David Spade, and Jon Heder.  NBC has a 4 episode mini-marathon of PARKS AND RECREATION.  At 8 and 8:30, check out the season premiere where Leslie marries two penguins, and the second episode where she finds a marijuana plant in the middle of her community garden.  Over on The CW, check out a repeat of 90210 – it’s the episode aboard Teddy’s dad’s boat.

The 9:00 Hour –

On ABC, you’ll find a rerun of the season premiere of SCRUBS.  Again, most importantly, Season 2 of BETTER OFF TED continues with an all new episode at 9:30!  Veronica starts slacking off at work when her ex-lover Mordor makes a return.  It’s going to be genius!!  CBS has the KENNEDY CENTER HONORS from 9-11.  Mel Brooks, Dave Brubeck, Grace Bumbry, Bruce Springsteen, and Robert DeNiro are being honored tonight.

PARKS AND RECREATION‘s mini marathon continues on NBC with the beauty pageant and practice date episodes.   FOX has the movie until local programming takes over at 10. The CW airs a repeat of MELROSE PLACE – the one where Jonah fills in as a music video director and Riley hasn’t told anyone about their engagement!

The 10:00 Hour –

ABC has an all new 20/20 – the people behind the real life BLIND SIDE are featured.  LENO is a repeat. CBS has the KENNEDY CENTER HONORS until 11.

Check out the next episode of TEEN MOM on MTV (a spinoff of my guilty pleasure 16 AND PREGNANT) – Catelynn needs to find somewhere to live now that her mother has moved away, Amber and Gary’s relationship continues to unravel, and Maci is struggling now that she’s officially single.  You can also find a new episode of TABITHA’S SALON TAKEOVER on Bravo as she heads to a shop in Chicago!
