Hope for DVDs in your stockings and lots of trips to your cinema center - this weekend and next week will be reruns of just about everything including late night programming. I guess the idea is that you're supposed to be spending time with people you love or like or something.

Today - Saturday

College Basketball is scattered all over the tube from morning 'til night.
