Tonight's TV Hot List: Friday, Dec. 18, 2009 - Featured

* Dollhouse (8/7c Fox) As evidenced by December's first two Dollhouse double shots, Joss Whedon's take on the ultimate identity theft is hitting on all cylinders. The stories have been taut, and included genuine surprises - especially Ballard's unexpected exit last week. Tonight's two-hour block should continue that momentum until next month, when the final episodes are expected to air. First, Victor returns to the real world when his contract is up. Then, Echo faces a nightmare after she's deemed too dangerous. * Crash: The Series (10/9c Starz) After a wild 13-episode ride, Season No. 2 comes to an end. Ben and Anthony have a climactic run-in with the Manson cultists and Ben finally gets some answers about his daughter's untimely death. Seth comes out of brain surgery ready to party (well, not immediately) and celebrates the kickoff of the Byzantium Project with a big soiree. Inez is being groomed for stardom by her film-director mentor (Matthew Glave), but first she needs to cut her vengeful boyfriend out of the picture. * Sanctuary (10/9c Syfy ) These days, Hollywood would have you believe that vampires are hunky young men with cover-boy faces who harbor tortured souls beneath their pale skin. Fortunately, there's Nikola Tesla (Jonathan Young), a recurring charmer who serves to remind us that vampires can be bad news for humans. Magnus and Will check out a rehab facility in Mexico, where they find Tesla up to his old tricks. * Four Weddings (10/9c TLC ) Season 4 of Say Yes to the Dress wraps up tonight, but TLC is still saying "I do" to wedding-themed programming with a sneak peek at this new unscripted series, which will premiere in January. It will follow four ultra-competitive brides who attend - and score - each other's weddings while all competing for one dream honeymoon. Of course, each bride believes her big day is the one to beat. But the others certainly have other ideas. * Frosty the Snowman (8/7c CBS) The joyous holiday perennial - originally telecast in 1969 - about a jolly, happy snowman with "a corncob pipe and a button nose, and two eyes made out of coal" returns to spread Christmas cheer. Much of the fun is provided by Jimmy Durante's great narration and Jackie Vernon's perfect voicing of Frosty. The delightful half hour is followed by the sequel, Frosty Returns, narrated by Jonathan Winters. Source Here

Tonight's TV Hot List: Friday, Sept. 18, 2009 - Featured

* Crash: The Series (10/9c Starz!) The second season gets underway with a compelling and involving episode that introduces new characters and catches up with some from Season 1. Front and center is the riveting Dennis Hopper as former entertainment mogul Ben Cendars, who's back in L.A. after months in rehab. He's on a driven mission to find out who killed his youngest daughter. Among the new faces, Eric Roberts stands out as visionary tycoon Seth Blanchard, who's bound and determined to bring an NFL franchise to the city. * Guiding Light (3/2c CBS) It's a bittersweet day for Guiding Light viewers as the longest-running scripted drama bids adieu to its fans today with the final episode of its 72-year run on radio and TV. Over the past few weeks, there's been a parade of past stars as the writers have been tying up loose ends and mending fences that have been broken for decades. But as the Bauers, Coopers, Lewises and Spauldings move on with their lives, this tearjerker will remind viewers what its scribes have been writing about for more than seven decades: the power of family and love. * 2009 ALMA Awards (8/7c ABC) Latino Hollywood's top estrellas shine at the National Council of La Raza's annual salute to Hispanic achievement in entertainment and sports. Once again, executive producer Eva Longoria Parker hosts the festivities (joined this year by George Lopez), and if you plan to count the number of times she changes clothes, note that last year's total was 10. Other performers include Shakira, David Archuleta, Nelly Furtado, Sean Kingston and Pitbull. Taped last night in L.A. * Eureka (9/8c Syfy ) Have you ever had one of those really bad days where your love interest is considering a job on another continent, your daughter is set to go away for college and a supercollider test goes wrong and leaves a magnetic problem hanging over your head? No? Well, the third-season finale provides a handy way for you to vicariously experience the bad day suffered by Sheriff Carter (Colin Ferguson). * Monk (9/8c USA Network ) Natalie becomes convinced that a critic, who condemns Julie's performance in a play, actually committed a murder that occurred at the same time as the play. Of course, it's no secret that a mother's love knows no bounds. So it's up to Monk to figure out if Natalie is correct in her suspicions, or if it's just her protective instincts kicking in. Dylan Baker guest stars as the critic and the object of Natalie's ire. * Dog Whisperer with Cesar Millan (9/8c National Geographic ) Velvet Revolver drummer Matt Sorum joins the ranks of Cesar's celebrity clientele when he seeks help socializing his tenacious 10-month-old French bulldog, Miles, who's not so nice to other dogs. Then the host tackles a more severe case when he tries to rehabilitate a pit bull that worked with sick children as a therapy dog until she got banned from the program for killing another pup.
