What to Watch Tonight: Babs' Fascinating People, Kathy Griffin's Record, Mob City Finale and More

barbara-walters-fascinating-people-2013On TV this Wednesday: Barbara Walters presents those she finds Fascinating, Mob City‘s last gamble, The X Factor’s Top 3 compete one last time and Cloris Leachman pays Kirstie a surprise visit. Here are 10 programs to keep on your radar.

8 pm The X Factor (Fox) | The Top 3 take the stage one last time in hopes of winning the competition.

8 pm A Home for the Holidays with Celine Dion (CBS) | The Grammy winner will perform alongside Ne-Yo, Chris Young and others, while sharing inspirational stories about children adopted from foster care. (No word on whether this will be more or less moving than Sarah McLachlan’s ASPCA commercials.)

8 pm Kathy Griffin: Record Breaker (Bravo) | In her Guiness world record-setting 20th televised special, the comic performs from the Majestic Theatre in San Antonio.

8 pm The Sing-Off (NBC) | The remaining six groups perform songs from box office hits… and “My Heart Will Go On” seems inevitable.

    Kathy Griffin is the worst.

    Mob City. It’s been underwhelming. But it was only 6 episodes so I continued with it.

  4. b says:

    I don’t watch for Bab’s. I watch for the people/celebs she picks. Or the producers pick. ; ) She should retire.

    The Sing-Off and the Michael Buble special (Cookie Monster!) is on my radar.

  12. I’m letting all the Mob City’s pile up and watch them all at once. I wonder if it will be picked up for season 2.
