What to Watch Weekend Dec. 20-21

rock of love charm school'Rock of Love Charm School'
(Sun., 9PM, VH1) 1st season finale
This could prove to be one of the most anticlimactic reality finales ever given the brouhaha that unfolded at the taping of the show's reunion special.

For those who haven't heard the news, ousted contestant Megan Hauserman reportedly called the cops on host Sharon Osbourne, charging that the famous music manager and wife of Ozzy attacked her.

It was Hauserman's own act of violence -- kicking fellow contestant Brandi M. -- that got her kicked out of 'Charm School,' while Brandi M., along with Destiney and Lacey, is now among the three finalists vying for the big $100,000 grand prize tonight. Irony.

Everybody Hates Chris: Everybody Hates Kris - a spoiler-free early look

by Adam Finley, posted Dec 6th 2006 8:01PM

everybody hates chrisThis holiday episode of Everybody Hates Chris will air on Monday, December 11 at 8 pm, but here's a little taste of what to expect. I'll have a more-detailed review up after the show airs.

It's Christmas in Brooklyn, and Chris has discovered the joy of the season, and more specifically, the joy of putting items on layaway. Over time he's been slowly paying for gifts for his family, but when he gets sick, he worries he won't be able to keep working and have the gifts paid off before Christmas. His father, who takes a job playing Santa at a department store (narrator Chris Rock points out it's more than a little odd that a black man is playing Santa Claus at a department store called "Goldsteins") gets Chris a job taking pictures of the kids. Julius, always concerned about money, tells all the kids the presents they want are too expensive.

The "Kris" in the episode title refers to guest star Richard Lewis, but I don't want to go into too much detail and ruin the episode. I will say, however, that Lewis turns in a great performance. He alone makes the episode worth watching.

Festivus Retro Squad: Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer

by Julia Ward, posted Dec 5th 2006 10:05AM
Rankin/Bass Rudolph the Red-Nosed ReindeerOne of the longest running Christmas specials in television history, Rankin/Bass' Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer debuted in 1964 on NBC. Around 1972, it switched over to CBS, where you can see it again this year on December 8th. Let's just get this part out of the way - it's not Claymation. The special was made using figurines in a stop motion animation process labeled "Animagic" by the show's producers.

A whole world of nostalgia was brought back for me a few years ago when the Island of Misfit Toys were introduced as plush dolls at CVS. I have a soft spot in my heart for the Rudolph special because it glorifies the plight of the misfit. Rudolph is the beta-kid Christmas special. Hermey, the dentist elf, and Rudolph, the red-nosed reindeer, are heroes to anyone who has ever been picked on for being a little different. Rudolph is for us - the geeks, the queers, the fat kids, the short bus riders, the loners and the AV crew.
