to watch

The Middle, 8 p.m., ABC Frankie takes a seasonal job to use her employee discount to buy presents for the kids, but the discount doesn't work until Dec. 26. That doesn't make any sense, because then she won't even have seasonal employment anymore. Poverty is hilarious!

The Grammy Nominations — Countdown to Music's Biggest Night, 10 p.m., CBS Music's biggest night? It's really nice of the Grammys to hold a concert counting down to the MTV Video Music Awards.


Eddie Vedder is the frontman for Pearl Jam. A photo caption on Tuesday's 2B page incorrectly described his current role with the band.
