Tonight’s TV Addictions: December 11, 2008

WHAT WE’RE WATCHING:
THE OFFICE (9PM NBC, Global in Canada)
Will tonight’s holiday themed episode of THE OFFICE live up to Dunder Mifflin’s tradition of ridiculously funny holiday themed episodes? With Meredith’s hair catching on fire and Dwight cornering the market on the hottest Christmas toy. We’re going to go out on a limb and say yes.

30 ROCK (9:30PM NBC, CityTV in Canada)
In what will surely come as no surprise to anyone who has tuned into 30 ROCK this season, tonight’s episode features another Special Guest Star. This time, Elaine Stritch returns to drive her son Jack crazy.

NEW & NOTABLE:
THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL (8PM AMC)
Yeah, yeah, Keanu Reeves has a remake out, and I’m sure it’ll have all kindsa cool special effects. But you know what? I’m willing to bet it won’t be better than the 1951 classic.

KATH & KIM (8:30PM NBC, E! in Canada)
As Kath and Phil throw a party to meet new “couple friends.” Something tells us that’s gonna be misinterpreted. If you’re not watching Molly Shannon and Selma Blair as the best mother/daughter team since Joan and Christina Crawford, shame on you!

CSI (9PM CBS, CTV in Canada)
Gil Grissom bidding adieu to the CSI mother-ship after nine season would probably mean more to us had we seen more than one episode of CSI.

PLANET IN PERIL: BATTLE LINES (9PM CNN and CNNHD)
It’s going to be a very special episode of THE TV ADDICT IN PERIL, if I fail to remind readers that Anderson Cooper and Dr. Sanjay Gupta investigate serious environmental conflicts, including mass hunger in Cameroon and Congo on tonight’s installment of PLANET IN PERIL: BATTLE LINES.

THETVADDICT.COM READER PICK (via Twitter):
SyFyMichael: Survivor, of course (8PM CBS, Global in Canada). A dozen half-naked, scheming people who haven’t showered for a month living on an island. Can’t beat that.
