On TV this weekend, Dec. 7-9

On TV this weekend


Celebrity Holiday Homes, 8 p.m., HGTV Three "celebrities" — Dee Snider, Cheryl Burke and Bebe Winans — get home makeovers. If they were actually celebrities, they wouldn't need a TV show to redecorate their houses.

VGA Ten, 9 p.m., Spike Samuel L. Jackson hosts the 10th anniversary of an awards show for the only form of entertainment that requires its consumers to pay $60 just to try out the goods. And look! Here's more $60 titles for you to try!

SEASON FINALE Hunted, 10 p.m., Cinemax Sam's cover is blown, so she must team up with Byzantium. Usually that means the operation is over, but, hey, this is Cinemax.

Sexy Baby, 10 p.m., Showtime A documentary follows a 32-year-old porn star exploiting a fetish, a 12-year-old using social media populated by sexual predators and a 22-year-old teacher who thinks she has to live up to beauty standards set by sex sites. This movie is pure, 2-D heartburn.


American Giving Awards, 8 p.m., NBC Joel McHale, of all people, hosts a special about celebrities giving $2 million to charity groups. Cleaning out their couch cushions can be such a chore!

Come Dance with Me, 8 p.m., Hallmark Andrew McCarthy is a white collar guy who has a crush on his dance teacher. You'll be thinking about Blane from Pretty in Pink the whole time.

Holly's Holiday, 8 p.m., Lifetime An advertising executive has a crush on a mannequin at a department store. You can ask Andrew McCarthy about that one, too.

Saturday Night Live, 11:30 p.m., NBC Jamie Foxx hosts and Ne-Yo performs, with a near-guarantee there will be a shot at Quentin Tarantino. We suggest Jamie in a skit about Reservoir Dogs, complaining about what his name is.


The Mistle-Tones, 8 p.m., ABC Family Tori Spelling singing a Christmas song and an appearance by Reginald VelJohnson prove that on ABC Family, the '90s never left.

The Simpsons, 8 p.m., Fox Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein from Portlandia drop in as new neighbors from Portland, Ore. But they're only doing it ironically.

SEASON FINALE The Amazing Race, 8 p.m., CBS Forget New York City; this show should end somewhere challenging. Which team wants to take that two-year, one-way trip to Mars?
