On TV this Sunday: Once Upon a Time‘s princesses and Revenge‘s queen of the Red Sharpies have their last outings before breaking for the holiday, Dexter comes face to face with Hannah’s pop, famous folks reward CNN Heroes and the Nuck stops here in Boardwalk Empire‘s season finale. As a supplement to TVLine’s original features (always linked within), here are 10 programs to keep on your radar.
8 pm Dog With a Blog (Disney Channel) | As the family’s first Christmas together approaches, Avery preps Tyler, Chloe and Stan for the terrible gifts that Ellen traditionally gives. (An all-new, holiday-themed Shake It Up follows at 8:30 pm.)
8:30 pm Bob’s Burgers (Fox) | After a drugged Bob smooches her, Linda’s sister Gayle falls for him. Paging Dr. Yap, stat!
9 pm Boardwalk Empire (HBO) | Season 3 finale: Nucky cedes control of one of his prized assets to Rothstein, hoping that the move will weaken Gyp’s alliance with Masseria so Nucky can reclaim Atlantic City. (You can raise a glass to this: The series is already renewed. Also, get scoop on a recent death and a deleted scene.)
9 pm The Walking Dead (AMC) | When the people of Woodbury are thrown into uncharted territory, Andrea steps up in the show’s midseason finale. (Let’s hope the Governor then doesn’t creepily sweet-talk her into stepping down soon after.)
