Check below this post for a Weekend Rewind on my top 10 shows of the 2000s!
8:00 I Want a Dog for Christmas, Charlie Brown (SPECIAL)
9:00 You Deserve It
10:00 Castle #61 "Head Case" (REPEAT)
ABC is starting with a special that probably will be below the specials of the last two weeks. Dud game show You Deserve It and a repeat of Castle won't do much.
Prediction: Charlie Brown - 6.9 million, 1.8/Deserve - 3.0 million, 0.9
8:00 2 Broke Girls #12 "And the Pop-Up Sale"
8:30 2 Broke Girls #4 "And the Rich People Problems" (REPEAT)
9:00 Two and a Half Men #189 "One False Move, Zimbabwe!"
9:30 Mike & Molly #35 "Christmas Break"
10:00 Hawaii Five-0 #36 "Alaheo Pau'ole"
CBS is trying something interesting at 8pm as they are running a new 2 Broke Girls to lead-off the night. CBS will see now if this breakout freshman hit can anchor an hour which it may do as soon as next season. I'd expect good numbers as it usually builds on its lead-in. After a repeat of Girls, new episodes close out the night and should be close to last week's numbers.
Prediction: Girls 8:00 - 11.6 million, 4.4/Men - 14.9 million, 4.9/Mike&Molly - 12.1 million, 4.0/Hawaii - 11.7 million, 3.1
NBC8:00 Fear Factor (Revived Premiere)
10:00 Rock Center with Brian Williams
After a dreadful fall, NBC is bringing back a show from happier days, Fear Factor, which was a hit for the network during its first run from 2001-2006. The revamp seems similar to the earlier show but it has been well-promoted and could see a good premiere by NBC standards. It should certainly be up from what The Sing Off has been doing. Maybe that will even help Rock Center a little bit.
Prediction: Factor - 7.8 million, 2.2/Rock Center - 4.1 million, 1.1
8:00 Terra Nova #11 "Within"
9:00 House #139 "A Pox on Our House" (REPEAT)
FOX is new at 8pm with Terra Nova in its penultimate week. If male viewers check out Fear Factor, it could go down from last episode's numbers which won't help its case.
Prediction: Nova - 6.4 million, 2.0
