What to Watch Tonight: The Closer, Rizzoli & Isles, and The Mortified

What to watch on Monday, December 26…

Is today a holiday? Kinda seems like it. I’m not an astronomer or a scientist of any kind, but does it seem like sometimes holidays are so full they spill over into the next day? (And no, Boxing Day does NOT count). I don’t know, let’s just finish eating our leftovers and playing with our now-broken toys. Oh, and this stuff:

Rudolph’s Shiny New Year
Another day, another holiday special, am I right? Just kidding, this thing is old, it’s from 1976 or something. Anyway, it’s about Rudolph and his red nose and his bossy owner, Santa Claus. Featuring the voice of Red Skelton (who was NOT on Sanford & Son, that was someone else). But yeah. Holiday specials. Is it summer yet?

8pm, Sundance
The Mortified Sessions
Less seasonal but appropriately awkward, tonight’s Mortified Sessions brings us Back to the Future‘s Lea Thompson and The Breakfast Club‘s Anthony Michael Hall. Just what embarrassed these teenagers (who were millionaires at the time)? Tune in and find out!

9pm, TNT
The Closer
Tonight it seems like everybody’s hasslin’ Brenda when a federal lawsuit against her starts to heat up. Meanwhile Brenda attempts to solve the murder case at the heart of said lawsuit, and Revenge of the Nerds‘ Curtis Armstrong guest-stars. Not as Booger, but probably as a different character.

Rizzoli & Isles
Tonight everyone’s favorite lady justice duo investigates the arson-related death of a firefighter, which is made more complicated by a hit-and-run incident. Ugh, could everyone just knock it off with the manslaughter already? VERY annoying.

12am, Cartoon Network
China, IL
It’s probably not going to shock you if I say that Adult Swim’s China, IL is a weird show. You knew this, even if you didn’t actually know this. Anyway, here’s the thing: It’s pretty good! In tonight’s holiday-themed segment, the professor brothers’ jobs are on the line after all their students fail their finals. See what I’m saying? That’s pretty funny right there.

Love & Hip Hop, 8 p.m., VH1
Who’s Still Standing?, 8 p.m., NBC
Cake Boss: Next Great Baker, 9 p.m., TLC
You Deserve It, SEASON 1 FINALE, 9 p.m., ABC
