On TV this weekend
Deal or No Deal, 8 p.m., NBC As a reminder that a lifetime of drudgery only rewards you with death, some yahoo gets a $2 million case. Also, the models hold an eating contest. No, really.
Larry the Cable Guy's Star Studded Christmas Extravaganza, 9 p.m., CMT Nothing says Christmas more than jokes about farts, zits and beer. But now they're being told by Terry Bradshaw, Lewis Black and Jeff Foxworthy.
Sanctuary, 10 p.m., Sci-Fi A teenager can recount memories in photographic detail by drawing them without looking at the paper. At least he could find work as a laser printer.
SEASON FINALE Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making the Team, 9:30 p.m., CMT This is so anti-climactic. All we have to do is turn on Fox on Sunday to see who won.
Lost City Raiders, 9 p.m., Sci-Fi Imagine Waterworld without the budget. Now imagine you with no money. What you have is you watching this awful movie on a Saturday night. Enjoy!
24: Redemption, 8 p.m., Fox It doesn't matter what else is on, because this TV movie is what we're watching. The trailers promise explosions, melodrama, torture and Jack Bauer yelling "DAMN IT!" This is why we waited a year and a half, people.
2008 American Music Awards, 8 p.m., ABC Are the AMAs more important than the Grammys now? Who cares? Jack Bauer is on.
SEASON FINALE Entourage, 10 p.m., HBO After the inevitable disappointment of finishing the setup for the next season of 24, we'll sit here and wish Jack had a go at Vincent Chase.
A Colbert Christmas, 10 p.m., Comedy Central Elvis Costello, Feist, Willie Nelson, John Legend, Toby Keith and even Jon Stewart keep the faux-conservative pundit company for the yuletide. How many Jesus Obama jokes do you think there will be?
SERIES PREMIERE The Drinky Crow Show, 12:15 a.m., Cartoon It's about an alcoholic bird and a monkey with syphilis, but really, we're just passing time until The Venture Bros. comes back. And 24.
