Tonight’s TV Addictions: December 12, 2008

WHAT WE’RE WATCHING:
LIPSTICK JUNGLE (9PM NBC, CityTV in Canada)
According to sources (and by sources I naturally mean the NYPost), top NBC brass will be watching very closely to see whether or not fans tune into the next three episodes before making a final decision on LIPSTICK JUNGLE’s fate. But no pressure or anything.

NEW & NOTABLE:
THE 2008 FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT AWARDS (9PM CW)
Oh the irony! Because nothing says family friendly like the promiscuous, scantily clad, borderline alcoholic teenagers that populate 85% of the CW network’s schedule.

E! TRUE HOLLYWOOD STORY (9PM E!)
When tonight’s subject was just a cheesetacular singer and the butt of Kathy Griffin’s Gaiken jokes, there was no way he was gettin’ the THS treatment. But now that AMERICAN IDOL’s Clay Aiken has come out, shocking at least three residents of Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania (“Say it ain’t so!” the Claymates can still be heard sobbing), the folks at E! are ready to have at him.

STARGATE: ATLANTIS (9PM Sci Fi)
It’s a truly freaky Friday when Dr. Keller’s weird behavior leads the team to discover that she’s been the victim of a brain switheroo!

THETVADDICT.COM READER PICK (via Twitter):
AvitheTVGeek: THE SOUP!!! (10PM E!) Watching Joel McHale make fun of reality shows/ stars gets the weekend off to a good start!
