What’s new tonight:
The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show (CBS) Remember when this used to be controversial? A full advertorial hour of half-naked sticks walking the runway in ridiculous undies that no one will ever buy? Now, it’s just a holiday tradition, like Starbuck-induced diabetes and mistletoe panties. Oh, and don’t forget the shitty music, this year provided by Maroon 5, Kanye West and Nicki Minaj. Upside: Half-naked sticks walking the runway in ridiculous undies.
Ringer (The CW) Fall Finale: Does the let’s-take-a-break-till-January episode of troubled-twins drama Ringer answer any questions, foremost being “Who’s still watching Ringer?” Not really, but Sarah Michelle Gellar’s former Buffy the Vampire Slayer co-star Amber Benson (Tara!) drops in for a visit—as a Stripper With a Heart of Gold. So there’s that.
Scott Turow’s Innocent (TNT) Movie: Sure, TNT’s getting into the original “mystery movie” business about 30 years late—but Innocent … sorry, Scott Turow’s Innocent … boasts the all-star cast of Bill Pullman, Alfred Molina, Marcia Gay Harden and nasty ol’ Lorena from True Blood (Mariana Klaveno)! And it’s full of that courtroom drama your parents so enjoy.
Sons of Anarchy (FX) Next-to-Last Episode: Last week, Opie let a little daylight through Clay—will he survive being shot? Will Jax and Tara finally get the fuck out of Dodge? Is it time for Big Otto to ride the lighting? Come to Brewvies (677 S. 200 West, 21 ) tonight and watch it all unfold on the big screen at 8 p.m.—totally free. With beer (not free).
