Talk-show tango holiday edition 2009: Dec. 21 to Jan. 1

In television on 12/20/2009 at 8:04 am

Oh my dear, sweet chickens! So I’m abandoning you until Monday, Jan. 4. What will you do? Cry into your eggnog the whole two weeks. Poor things. Or watch some TV? I’ve tried to scrounge as much new info as possible. Where there was none at the time of this writing (the stewardess is standing by my seat, insisting I put my tray table up and stow my laptop), you can click the links to get more info. All the best, and not too much eggnog and all that.
