9 pm Gossip Girl (The CW) | In the series’ penultimate episode, Chuck makes a deal that could change his life and Nate’s financial woes land him somewhere he never thought he’d be. And again, we ask: What three words will flash on screen as this hour ends?

9 pm Mel Brooks Strikes Back (HBO) | The comic mastermind behind Blazing Saddles and The Producers has a stroke — of genius! — as he reminisces about his very successful career.

  11. brandi says:

    The popularity of Michael Buble completely mystifies me. He has next to no personality, a mediocre voice and comes off as a 3rd. rate singer at an obscure piano bar.

    • Jo says:

      You’re kidding right? He’s very likeable and is an amazing singer, and especially live !! His voice is real and mature, no auto tune for this guy!

      • CKO says:

        Have you listened to his Christmas album, Jo? There is a lot of autotune on the album, he also did one of these TV specials in the UK and his vocals were autotuned in post production. He doesn’t need it but it’s still there.

    • Luke Nutley says:

      Michael Buble is the male version of Bette Midler but with a smaller rack.

      • Jeff says:

        I don’t know about that. One of the celebrity magazines published a shirtless picture of him, and they dubbed him “Michael Mooble”

  12. Andy says:

    HIMYM and 2 Broke Girls

  13. Rebecca says:

    MNF. Go Patriots!
