TV Watch List: Tuesday, December 10

The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show

Metro’s Tuesday night TV breakdown. 

‘The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show’
LINGERIE. Hey fellas (and plenty of ladies too) it’s here! Your favorite night of television programming of the year! Except maybe the Super Bowl or whatever, if you’re a sports guy/gal. And ladies (all of you) saddle up to a pint of Ben and Jerry’s and prepare to seethe in silent, jealous rage — it will all be over soon. Yep, it’s the annual display of practically naked, beautiful women with improbably perfect bodies, sometimes wearing wings.
10 p.m., CBS

‘Sons of Anarchy’
DRAMA. Remember when Charlie Hunnam was going to play Christian Grey, but then he got all scared that he’d turn into Jessie Spano, or something to that effect? Well, at least bailing on “50 Shades” (which is probably going to be a steaming pile of not-all-that-good smut, if we’re being honest) left him plenty of time to concentrate on channeling all that steely, masculine energy into Jax. Speaking of Jax, he’s got plenty of drama to deal with in tonight’s big season finale.
10 p.m., FX

‘American Country Awards’
AWARD SHOW. Wait, is this different than the CMAs? Does country music really need two separate award shows? At this one, which takes place in Vegas and is fan-voted, it appears that Carrie Underwood will NOT be performing, though Darius Rucker (Hootie!) will. She’s probably resting her pipes from that triumphant “Sound of Music” performance. Ha ha ha, just kidding. That was terrible.
8 p.m., FOX
