TV tonight: 'Dancing With the Stars,' 'Revolution'
Posted November 25, 2012
Robert Bianco has the day off.
Dancing With the Stars
ABC, 8 ET/PT
Here it is, the extravaganza that has been eagerly awaited (by some) since September: the two-night season finale of DWTS, in which one All-Star —Olympian Shawn Johnson, Bachelorette Melissa Rycroft or actress Kelly Monaco — will capture the coveted disco ball. Tonight, an hour of performances, after which ABC double-runs a special return of the late, lamented (by some), heartwarming and house-building Extreme Makeover: Home Edition (9 ET/PT). On Tuesday, the two-hour coronation.
Cake Boss/Next Great Baker
TLC, 9 ET/PT
Enough Cake Boss to give one a tummy ache: TLC detours from its usual diet of little people, tinier pageant contestants and a few-too-many wives to kick off the return of Next Great Baker at 9, followed by Cake Boss at 10:30. The first is baker Buddy Velastro's competition to see which of 13 wannabes are good enough to take home a $100,000 prize; the second is the season premiere of Velastro's own reality series, where tonight the Boss has 24 hours to whip up a special cake for legendary actress Betty White.
NBC, 10 ET/PT
My, how fast 15 years in the future flies. It's already fall finale time for one of the season's biggest new hits, NBC's Revolution. And at last, we go where things have been heading since Episode 1, as Miles (Billy Burke) comes face-to-face with his former friend and current leader of the militia, Sebastian Monroe (David Lyons), who has far bigger plans for conquest than just his Monroe Republic. But fear not, fans; the series returns March 25.
