Tonight’s TV Addictions: December 3, 2008

WHAT WE’RE WATCHING:
PRIVATE PRACTICE (9PM ABC, “A” in Canada)
ABC promos for this week’s PRACTICE promise a miracle. We’ll settle for an interesting story, less Taye Diggs and more Paul Adelstein.

LAW & ORDER (9PM NBC, CTV in Canada)
Far be it from us to judge Starbuck’s first order of business after finally finding earth. But a guest starring gig on LAW & ORDER probably wouldn’t have been our first choice.

NEW & NOTABLE:
SECRET MILLIONAIRE (8PM FOX)
For once, a FOX reality show does good by making wealthy folks go undercover and see how the other half (read: poor) people live. Pretty much the network’s court ordered mea culpa for THE MOMENT OF TRUTH and a half a dozen or so other reality shows.

CHRISTMAS IN ROCKEFELLER CENTER 2008 (8PM NBC)
Or as us Canadians spell it, CHRISTMAS IN ROCKEFELLER CENTRE 2008 (“Eh” Optional)

THETVADDICT.COM READER PICK (via Twitter):
natthedem: Doing my part to make sure “Life” (9PM NBC) doesn’t meet the same fate as its Wednesday night counterpart, “Pushing Daisies.”

  • FNL and Life make Wednesdays not so horrible.

    I’ll be watching one of the last original (and cancelled too soon) Pushing Daisies. Wed.’s are a slow night for me.

    I thought Pushing Daisies had a couple more shows left (13 this season)? Or will I have to wait for the DVD release? Damn ABC. If it weren’t for Lost…
