What's On TV Tonight: Monday, December 7th, 2009
Andrew Jackson's checkered past, Santa Claus's shady beginnings, and a potential mother-meet on How I Met Your Mother. ALL TONIGHT.
CHECK OUT WHAT TO WATCH AFTER THE JUMP
NOTE: ALL TIMES EASTERN & PACIFIC
SANTA CLAUS IS COMIN' TO TOWN
Time: 8 - 9PM
Reasons to watch: This classic details Santa's first year on the job as he rises against the evil mayor Burgermeister Meisterburger, who has outlawed all toys. It's like Batman Begins without the kung-fu and Katie Holmes.
HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER
Time: 8 - 8:30PM
Reasons to watch: Ted's friends attempt to help him get a date with JoAnna Garcia. Could she be the aforementioned mother? Otherwise they should call this episode "How I Met The Girl I Porked Before I Met Your Mother."
Time: 8 - 11:30PM
Reasons to watch: What better way to watch Martin Scorsese's tense and uber-twisty crime drama than with constant interruptions by Dave Holmes and that blonde chick?
Time: 10 - 11PM
Reasons to watch: A woman hoards so much junk that the floors in her house sink and rupture her gas and plumbing lines. In other words, that woman with the junk in the trunk has bad gas.
ANDREW JACKSON: GOOD, EVIL, AND THE PRESIDENCY
Time: 10 - 11PM
Reasons to watch: This profile centers on Andrew Jackson's success in battle and his overseeing of forcefully removing Native Americans from their lands. Wow. Apparently Andrew Jackson was a total dick. In protest, I urge all readers to send me their twenty dollar bills. I'll have them disposed of properly.
