8-8:30 THE BIG BANG THEORY – An attractive comic book artist tests Leonard’s relationship. Darn that hunky John Cassaday! (Nobody gets me.)
8-9 IT’S THE GREAT PUMPKIN, CHARLIE BROWN – The holiday classic! It’s not as perfect as the Christmas special (those Red Baron scenes go on and on…), but at its best, it’s the funniest of the Peanuts specials. It also includes a newer short, adapted directly from a series of strips where Linus runs for class president, only to have it fall apart when his religion becomes an issue. Man, Charles Schulz saw Mitt Romney coming!
