Friday, Nov.30
6 p.m. “Lucky Christmas” A woman races to retrieve a winning lottery ticket that was in the glove compartment when her car was stolen. We’re thinking “Tragically Ironic Christmas That Left Us Eternally Bitter” might be a better title.  (2011) Hallmark Channel.
10:30 p.m. “Health Inspectors”
Things you don’t want to know about places where you’ll never eat. Food network.
11:15p.m. “War of the Worlds” (2005)
This is the Tom Cruise version where the aliens are finally scared off by the scientology pamphlets. TNT.

6:30p.m. “Dungeons and Dragons: Wrath of the Dragon God” Surely to be followed by “Dungeons and Dragons: the Wrath of Mom Who Wants You To Keep It Down But Would Your Friends Like Some Lemonade?” 2005) SyFy.
7 p.m. “A Fairly Odd Christmas” Another cartoon character has to “save” Christmas. Last we checked, Christmas didn’t need saving. It’s an established economic juggernaut on a par with taxes, military spending and the creeping “how did that happen?” increases in your cable bill. Nickelodeon
8 p.m. “Naughty or Nice” (2012)
A woman gets a hold of Santa’s “naughty and nice” lists. Unfortunately, the naughty list doesn’t come with pictures. You can watch that movie on SpectraVision on your next business trip.   Hallmark Channel.

With the election over, Newt Gingrich is due to release his latest lunar colony/space-base death ray idea. We’re hoping for something involving revivified mummies and granting statehood to Disneyworld. NBC.

We don’t know what makes a Cougar wife “extreme.” Maybe it’s the age discrepancy. Maybe it’s the plastic surgery. Maybe it’s the pelts of younger suitors she keeps in her hunting lodge The Learning Channel.
10 p.m.”Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura”
Tonight’s show examines the story of a pro wrestler who used a short film career to work his way into the governor’s mansion. It sounds a tad farfetched. TruTV
