While we're still recovering from last night's fantastic series finale of "The Shield" we can still open our eyes to the fact that this extended weekend stinks in terms of TV (unless you love football).

Tonight features the season finale of "Sons of Anarchy" which we keep referring to Kurt Cobain's motorcycle club - let's face it, Charlie Hunnam as "Jax" is all Nirvana'd-out: greasy hair, stubble, and flannels. We have the premiere of Rosie O'Donnell's new variety show special which seems scary and makes us want to call it "Rosie's House of Pain" for some reason, and then Bawbawa Wawa is interviewing our President-elect and his wife.
