On TV this Sunday: Well, let’s put it this way — if you don’t watch Survivor, you’ll be watching cable (or, you know, football). We’ve hand-picked 10 options, including the Dexter and Homeland season finales and Leverage‘s Boys’ Night Out.
7 pm Z100’s Jingle Ball 2011 (Fuse) | Hits and highlights from NYC’s hottest December concert ticket, including performances by Kelly Clarkson, Hot Chelle Rae, Gym Class Heroes, LMFAO, Gaga and others.
8 pm Survivor: South Pacific (CBS) | The winner of the final Redemption Island duel reenters the game for a chance at $1 million and the title of ‘Sole Survivor,’ on this special two-hour season finale (followed at 10 pm by the one-hour live reunion show).
8:30 pm Allen Gregory (Fox) | “Season” finale: Allen Gregory bribes Principal Gottlieb into a romantic situation that he hopes will bring them closer together. Now speaking of squicky couplings….
9 pm Dexter (Showtime) | Season 6 finale: Dexter and the homicide department race against a lunar eclipse to catch the Doomsday Killers before their final gruesome act; Debra struggles with a new emotional reality.
9 pm Leverage (TNT) | If you caught last week’s highly entertaining “Girls’ Night Out Job” — featuring a savvier, sexier version of Charlie’s Angels — you won’t want to miss “The Boys’ Night Out Job” and, for one, find out why Hardison was being chased up a fence by a dog. Guest star Drew Powell reprises his role of Jack Hurley (from Season 1’s “The 12-Step Job”).
9 pm Next Iron Chef: Super Chefs (Food Network) | It’s the Season 4 finale, and TVLine’s Meg Masters is making her call: “Chef Zakarian all the way — though the fear is that since Stadium Kitchen no longer has a female competitor, the title will ultimately go to the far less-deserving Chef Faulkner.” (Mind you, Meg guessed right last week with the WWE Slammy Awards’ Superstar of the Year, so she has skills.)
9 pm Robot Chicken (Adult Swim) | If you’re not watching the ’93 reissue of Jedi over on Spike (starting at 7:30), Robot Chicken is serving up Star Wars spoofs, Episode I and II, back-to-back.
10 pm Homeland (Showtime) | With Carrie near catatonic and confined to bed, Saul investigates the implications of her timeline; Brody makes his final preparations for the vice president’s policy summit.
10 pm Hell on Wheels (AMC) | With Elam’s life in the balance, Cullen must decide how much he’s willing to risk; Durant faces financial ruin as Lily confronts the family of her late husband.
10 pm All-American Muslim (TLC) | See what all the hubbub is about and remember, your local home improvement store will always take your business.
