9 pm SNL Christmas (NBC) | You know what would be a real Christmas miracle? If the annual special got rid of that annoying Gilly framing device.

9 pm Mob City (TNT) | Two-hour miniseries premiere: The Walking Dead‘s Frank Darabont is behind this three-week, six-hour noir-style drama starring Jon Bernthal (The Walking Dead) as Det. Joe Teague, a key figure in the circa-1947 LAPD’s plan to cripple organized crime.

(Watch a promo and see what Bernthal says about reuniting with his Walking Dead boss.)

9:30 pm Super Fun Night (ABC) | In tonight’s episode – which is the comedy’s original, heretofore unaired pilot – Kimmie remembers how her big promotion at the firm changed her life. Kelen Coleman (The Newsroom) and Keegan-Michael Key (Key & Peele) guest-star.

  • Watched the Kirstie premiere on Demand and was very disappointed. Lots of talent, but it just wasn’t “there”. Hopefully it will improve. Can’t recommend it at this point.

    • I know. I’d rather have actual stories than a one sentence teaser. Hope TVline doesn’t give in to demands.

  • I have no interest in seeing YET ANOTHER mobster story, but at least they won’t have to show commercials for it every 3 seconds like they have been for the past several months.

  • ‘ Prepare pasta from four to five almonds with milk. Another thing that you
    have to remember with ultrasound energy when it comes
    to skin rejuvenation is that not everyone may react positively
    with the treatment. Soak some chamomile tea bags in hot
    water, then rinse in cool water to create an eye-pack.

  • Appropriate daily intake values of fluids vary from person to person accrding to their lifestyle and
    activities, butt eight 8 ounce glasses of water a day is generalky
    a sufficient amount for adults. When finding the best eye cream
    for dark under eye ciircles you need to test them for yourself, and stay with one that gives you the best results.

    Apricots and spinach also contain high amounts of beta carotene.

    Add some mint leaves, lemon juice, and salt to tomato juice and drink.

    There are many reasons for these circles under eyes.
