Tonight’s TV Addictions: December 18, 2008

NEW & NOTABLE:
MILLION DOLLAR PASSWORD (8PM CBS)
We’d pass on this game show redux, but since the secret word is Shatner, we’re so there.

SCAM OF THE CENTURY (9PM CNBC)
Talk about ripped from the headlines! If you wanna know how Bernie Madoff pulled off that $50 million ponzi scheme (whether as a guide to what to watch out for or an inspirational video), tune in for a full analysis of the shockingly brazen heist.

WORLD’S DUMBEST CRIMINALS (9PM truTV)
Okay, frankly, we have no clue where to find truTV on the dial, but we will totally seek it out in order to see this special. First of all, it’s brought to us by the folks over at thesmokinggun.com, home of some of the most bizarre crime reports and mug shots you’ll ever see. Second of all, this hour is basically THE SOUP… with criminals doing dumb stuff instead of celebs!
