What We’re Watching: December 1, 2008

TONIGHT’S TV ADDICTIONS:
TERMINATOR: THE SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES (8PM on FOX, “A” Channel in Canada)
Rumor Alert: Summer Glau loses all of her clothes in an action-packed shoot-out (And yes, we’re not above making stuff up to get you people to tune into this show!)

GOSSIP GIRL (8PM CW)
Aaron, or as we like to call him, television’s lamest love interest, burns to death in a horrible plane crash. Oh wait, must not replace what we’re hoping happens with the actual story-line.

PRIVILEGED (9PM CW, E! in Canada)
‘Tis the season for Megan to get caught under the mistletoe.

BOSTON LEGAL (10PM ABC, Global in Canada)
As BOSTON LEGAL inches closer an closer to its series finale, this TV Addict must come to grips that jumping on the BL bandwagon in its final season may not have been the brightest idea.

NEW & NOTABLE:
INSIDE THE ACTOR’S STUDIO (8PM Bravo)
The Harry Potter fandom anxiously holds their breath in the hopes that Dan Radcliffe delivers a verbal smack-down to former POTTER co-star and current overhyped “it” boy Robert Pattinson. Or maybe it’s just us.

MY OWN WORST ENEMY (10PM NBC, Global in Canada)
Spoiler Alert: Turns out Christian Slater’s own worst enemy was an indifferent audience.

THETVADDICT.COM READER PICK (via Twitter):
Memles: With PUSHING DAISIES gone, CHUCK (8PM NBC, CityTV in Canada) is the last great hope for the 07 Freshman Class. It deserves our allegiance.

    Actually, I think Gossip Girl was also part of that same class.

    How do I know this? Well, I remember one site did this thing about how the new fad of the season was the name “Chuck”– Chuck BartowIdon’tcareAboutThisShowski, Chuck Basshole, and Charlotte CharlesI’mgonnamisshersomuch.

  • TVFan

    So excited for Chuck and the return of Buster (AD’s Tony Hale!)

  • Deepa

    Yup your right….GG also part of the same class…and its going pretty strong so no worries..

    SPOILER ALERT……

    and talking about DEATH on Gossip Girl….someone is gonna die tonight (and for REAL…not “fake heroes death”)

    watched the episode last night….A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Just got through watching Chuck.

    Although he was rather underused in the episode, it was still awesome to see Babylon 5’s Captain John Sheridan, I mean Bruce Boxleitner, playing Devon’s dad. Then in the preview for next week’s episode, Sarah’s dad will be played by the also awesome Gary Cole, who played Captain Matthew Gideon on Crusade, B5’s short-lived sequel series.

    Whoever’s doing the casting for Chuck, I want to give them a hug. Is that weird?

  • Josh Emerson

    I care about nothing you’re watching. lol Chuck is my top pick. That show getting a full season sorta makes up for fellow ’07 show Pushing Daisies getting canned.

    I also watched Heroes. No comment.

  • Why weren’t there any new episodes of CBS-Shows that night?
