What’s new on the tube tonight:

The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2014 (CBS) Special: Remember the days when this commercialized jigglefest was denounced and protested as a threat to The Children, Morality and ‘Merica’s soul itself? Now, it’s just a holiday tradition—bring on the tits and glitz! Filmed in London last week, this year’s edition features musical guests the obligatory Taylor Swift, orange blob Ed Sheeran, Ariana Vanilla Latte Grande and, inexplicably, Hozier. Who made the call, “You know, it’s just not a party without Hozier,” anyway?

Sons of Anarchy (FX) Series Finale: The #FinalRide nears the end and, as much as I want it to happen, I doubt Sons of Anarchy will grant my long-held TV wish of concluding a series by killing off the entire cast. The Sopranos, The Shield, Rescue Me, Breaking Bad, Boardwalk Empire, et al.—none of these greats dared to pull the final trigger, though Six Feet Under kinda-sorta did it with a fatal fast-forward in 2005. No, I predict that Jax (Charlie Hunnam, who finally learned how to act sometime around Season 2 or 3) and most of SAMCRO will live to ride another day in Charming, the most erroneously named town in America. Also, that series closer "Papa's Goods" will run three hours, 70 minutes of it strictly musical montages, followed by a two-hour Anarchy Afterword discussion with a bottom-screen crawl of every "Hamlet on Harleys," "Sopranos on scooters" and "Charles in Charge on choppers" reference ever made by TV critics about SOA. But seriously: Thanks for a fantastic, flawed, exciting and maddening series, Kurt Sutter. Come see it at Brewvies Cinema Pub (677 S. 200 West, 21+) tonight at 8 p.m. for free, Final Riders.
