Tonight’s TV Addictions: December 19, 2008

If you missed the premiere of this Ryan Seacrest-produced dating show… um, do yourself a favor, and miss this rerun of it, too.

Ever wonder the difference between a country ham and a city ham? Okay, come on, you know you have! Well, tonight’s episode, aptly titled “Ham I Am” has the answer. (Clue: It involves salt.)

There’s not a lot this show does right these days, but we’ve gotta give AMC props for this episode, in which Pine Valley gathers to remember and mourn Myrtle, played for over three decades by Eileen Herlie. The much-loved actress passed away on October 8 of this year.

Charlie is forced to work with his nemesis. Having never seen this show, that’s about all we can tell you, but there are two good reasons to catch this episode. First, you can always be assured that wacky chaos will ensue when a good guy is forced to work with his nemesis. And second… well, it ain’t like there’s a whole lot of new shows on tonight!

DEXTER (10PM Showtime)
Did the debate between thetvaddict (“hated it!”) and CT (“loved it!”) leave you wishing you’d watched this killer drama’s season finale? Well, here’s your chance to catch the episode — titled “Do You Take Dexter Morgan?” — and weigh in with your thoughts!

What do you do when your beau wants to cuddle… but you’re terrified he’ll pat your pregnancy pad and realize that — whoops! — you aren’t actually carrying his child? Tune in and find out how Nicole handles the age old dilemma!
