TV Junkie: Howard Stern on Letterman; Grinch; "House"; "Nip/Tuck" Season Ender; Dan Savage on Colbert
Tonight - Tuesday
Lakers @ Rockets (CBS2, 5:30 p.m.) If the NBA consolidated these two they'd be the Lockets which sounds better anyway, what the hell is a Laker, some kind of ship?
"Friday Night Lights" (NBC, 8:00 p.m.) Cheerleader competition becomes the focus for the town as well as additional male viewers of the show.
"Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas: 40th Anniversary" (ABC, 8:00 p.m.) I'm a mean one, so you'd best watch the classic.
"NCIS" (CNS, 8:00 p.m.) Secret robot kills an officer secretly. This is followed by a new "The Unit" - Do LAisters watch Tuesday primetime CBS? Some feedback please. Thx.
"The 8th Annual Family Television Awards" (the CW, 9:00 p.m.) D-list celebrity alert!
"House" (Fox, 9:00 p.m.) Ok, so this is the new episode -- and it will be insultingly Xmas themed, with a sick "little person" even
"Nip/Tuck" (FX, 10:00 p.m.) Season 4 finale!
"Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2006" (ABC, 10:00 p.m.) Agassi, Jay-Z, Patrick Dempsey, and, I guess, 7 more

"The Late Show With David Letterman" (CBS, 11:30 p.m.) Howard Stern(!!), Gwen Stefani performs -- hopefully not that stinkin' robot song again
"Jimmy Kimmel LIVE" (ABC, 12:05 a.m.) The not-difficult-to-look-at Jessica Biel, the not-so-easy-to-look-at Mario Batali, Fantasia performs
