For Tuesday, December 11th 2012 I recommend the following holiday programming:
Hart of Dixie (The CW, 8 p.m.) – “Blue Christmas” – Zoe (Rachel Bilson) finds herself anxious that her ever-critical mother will be visiting BlueBell soon for the holidays. In order to avoid spending quality time with her mother, she busies herself with a patient, but potentially ruins Christmas Eve for the whole town.
Raising Hope (FOX, 8 p.m.) – “Last Christmas” – Virginia (Martha Plimpton) is convinced that the world is going to end on Dec. 21, 2012. So she uses her extreme couponing skills to stock up on supplies and she forces the family to train for the apocalypse. Meanwhile, Jimmy (Lucas Neff) is determined to give Hope (Baylie and Rylie Cregut) the best Christmas he can, since it likely will be the first one she remembers, and Maw Maw (Cloris Leachman) tries to knock a few more items off her bucket list before the world ends.
New Girl (FOX, 9 p.m.) – “Santa” – When the gang attempts to juggle multiple holiday parties in one night, Jess (Zooey Deschanel) tries to avoid a remorseful Sam (guest star David Walton), Nick (Jake Johnson) tries to keep up with a sexually adventurous Angie (guest star Olivia Munn) and Winston (Lamorne Morris) panics when he gets a cranberry stuck in his ear.
The Mindy Project (FOX, 9:30 p.m.) – “Josh & Mindy’s Christmas Party” – Mindy (Mindy Kaling) throws an office Christmas party at her apartment, and she’s eager for her colleagues to finally meet her boyfriend, Josh (guest star Tommy Dewey). Meanwhile, Jeremy (Ed Weeks) deals with doling out the office holiday bonuses, much to everyone’s chagrin.
Parenthood (NBC, 10 p.m.) – “What to My Wondering Eyes” – The holiday incites a mix of emotions as Adam (Peter Krause) and Kristina (Monica Potter) experience a health scare while Crosby (Dax Shepard) and Jasmine (Joy Bryant) celebrate their first Christmas together as a family. Sarah (Lauren Graham) is torn between her feelings for Mark (Jason Ritter) and her evolving relationship with Hank (Ray Romano). Amber (Mae Whitman) and Ryan (Matt Lauria) face challenges in their relationship. Meanwhile, Zeek (Craig T. Nelson) helps to restore belief in a childhood hero.
