Our highlights of what to watch on TV this week include the best college and professional football games of the week. And how can we forget one of the biggest classics of the Holiday Season?
On Monday night at 8 p.m., ABC will show A Charlie Brown Christmas. In this holiday classic, Charlie Brown learns the “real” meaning of Christmas. This show first aired in 1965, and it was the first cartoon to ever feature the characters from Peanuts. Kids of all ages have made this show a yearly tradition now in its sixth decade.
ABC is filling their Tuesday 10 p.m. slot by bringing back What Would You Do? The show sets up awkward situations to which unsuspecting people are witness. It is hosted by John Quinones (ABC News). In one episode, a pair of actors plays the part of a couple in a restaurant. When their credit card is “declined,” the waiter (who was also in on the deception), yells at them to get to work, throwing aprons at them. Several patrons in the restaurant offer to pay the bill.
The last show ABC had in that time slot, Lucky 7, lasted just two episodes before being canceled. Unfortunately, cameras were not rolling when the makers of that series heard the news. Tuesday, December 3rd marks the return of What Would You Do?
For those who love fashion, check out the premiere of Courtney Loves Dallas. The series follows Courtney Kerr, a celebrity in the world of fashion retail, as she quits her job to be a full-time blogger. We also get to see inside details of her dating life! The show premieres Thursday, December 5th at 10 p.m. on Bravo.
The Big Ten Championship features a clash of champions in a contest between Michigan State and Ohio State. Both teams won their respective divisions, and feature hot young players. This game is not to be missed if you enjoy college football. The head-to-head battle of some of the best college football players in the country is scheduled for 8 p.m. on Saturday, December 7th. You can watch the contest live on FOX.
On Sunday, December 8th, the Cincinnati Bengals host the Indianapolis Colts at Paul Brown Stadium. The game will kick off at 1 p.m. Eastern time. Two of the best teams in football so far this year, going head-to-head, should provide a fun, exciting game. During week 13 of the season, both teams stood at a respectable 7-4. The game this week could have playoff consequences. Autumn is the season for football, and NFL games do not get much better than this match-up.
Remember – it may feel like it will take you a week to digest the food from Thanksgiving. But don’t spend all your time watching TV. Get out and get some exercise during the day. But these five choices are perfect for these chilly autumn evenings.
