Tonight’s TV Addictions: December 17, 2008

WHAT WE’RE WATCHING:
THE NEW ADVENTURES OF OLD CHRISTINE (8PM CBS)
No word on whether Christine and Barb are turning their workplace into a day spa just so Julia Louis-Dreyfus can re-inact one of her most iconic SEINFELD scenes. “They’re real… and they’re spectacular…”

GARY UNMARRIED (8:30PM CBS)
Look, we admit it, we like GARY UNMARRIED. It’s just not something we’re particularly proud of. So if you don’t mind, let’s just keep this between us.

PRIVATE PRACTICE (9PM ABC, “A” in Canada)
Kevin questions where he and Addison are headed as a couple. Our vote is for splitsville so that Addison can finally meet someone interesting.

NEW & NOTABLE:
LIFE (9PM NBC)
The murder of three Russians leads Crews and Co. to Russian mobster Garret Dillahunt. Oh sure, blame the Terminator.

DIRTY SEXY MONEY (10PM ABC)
The Darlings cope with the impact of a shooting spree that resulted in a death, a coma patient and an amnesia victim. WOW, really!? Kind of makes us wish we didn’t bail on the show at the beginning of the season.

THETVADDICT.COM READER PICK (via Twitter): rural_jurur: MUPPET CHRISTMAS SPECIAL! (8PM NBC) Well, because it’s the Muppets for frak’s sake!

    HEY! Don’t bash poor kevin!

    This is the only “stable” relationship Addison has ever had other than the one she had with Derek before she cheated on him.

    I actually really hope they last a bit longer. It’s nice to see a normal relationship on tv.

    Private Practice has gotten so much better!

    No mention of my beloved Pushing Daisies? Only 4 episodes left to enjoy. 🙁 Tonight’s looks awesome though. The Pie Hole gang meets their Norwegian counterparts.
