What to watch on Tuesday, December 20…
Tonight, after you’ve gathered together all of your pets, children, and live-in servants and wrapped everyone together in one huge electric-blanket burrito, become even COZIER by turning on the TV and watching these wintry treats:
ORIGINAL SPECIAL, 9pm, CBS
The 34th Annual Kennedy Center Honors
It’s about time somebody honored Meryl Streep! She’s spent too many years without any awards, her mantel covered only with homemade trophies made by her children out of dried macaroni noodles. Congratulations, Meryl Streep! Some other people will also be honored, and those people include Barbara Cook, Neil Diamond, Yo-Yo Ma, and Sonny Rollins. As part of their booty, said winners will enjoy performances by Bill Cosby, Robert DeNiro, Herbie Hancock, Anne Hathaway, Sarah Jessica Parker, Lionel Richie, Smokey Robinson, James Taylor, and Tracey Ullman.
SERIES PREMIERE, 10pm, TLC
Extreme Couponing All-Stars

SERIES PREMIERE, 8pm, Discovery
Best in the Business
Well, Discovery went and figured out a way to make yet another show about blue-collar occupations, but this time the men and women must COMPETE against one another. How simply diabolical! In tonight’s premiere episode, heavy-equipment operators vie for supremacy in their field.
