What to Watch: TV Picks for November 28 - December 4

I Hate my Teenage Daughter - Friday December 2, 9PM ET/PT, Global and Wednesday November 30, 9:30 PM ET/PT, Fox
Well now, this is a strange time of year to debut a new show. The fact that Fox has moved the debut of this comedy around could be a sign they don't have a ton of faith in it, or it could mean nothing at all. With Jaime Pressly ('My Name is Earl') in a lead role, it's bound to have some attitude. She plays one of two moms who discover that their pampered kids have turned into bullying, spoiled mean girls. I think this premise has a ton of potential actually -- I just hope the script has more subtlety than the title.
Also This Week:
Louie - Monday November 28, 9:30PM ET/PT, Citytv
I've always been sort of amazed by hecklers -- people who go see live performances and then jeer loudly. I'm of two minds. On the one hand, the heckler presumably chooses to attend the thing they are heckling, so all their showing off is their own bad judgment. On the other hand, no matter how disappointed I am in a show, I'm too much of a coward to yell about it. Louie takes on an attractive female heckler in this episode, by giving as good as he gets.
New Girl - Tuesday November 29, 9PM ET/PT, Citytv/Fox
One of the few network shows not in re-runs this week due to American Thanksgiving, this week has Winston join Jess's hand bell quartet for troubled youth, and lo and behold, he's a natural. Meanwhile Schmidt and Nick go to roommate war over who should fix the busted toilet.
Facing Evil with Candice DeLong - Sunday December 4, 10PM ET/11PM PT, Investigation Discovery
Former FBI agent and high-level profiler (she worked on the Unabomber case) DeLong's new show builds on the theme of her other show 'Deadly Women.' In 'Facing Evil' she interviews the same women she profiled in 'Deadly Women,' and they get the chance to tell their side of the story. Tonight's debut features Susan Grund, who actually maintains her innocence. The follow-up episodes are with women who've admitted their guilt.
