Potts Picks: Today’s Best TV – January 6, 2012

(ALL TIMES ET)

8PM | NBC
Chuck
– Last week’s episode was so sweet and awesome, in a season two or three kinda way, that it almost redeemed this disappointing final season of Chuck. Here’s hoping tonight’s episode continues that vibe, as Casey meets up with Vebanski (guest star Carrie-Anne Moss) again, and the newly not-baked Jeff starts to make some connections about the odd happenings at the Buy More.

8PM | FOX
2012 Cotton Bowl
– Arkansas vs. Kansas State battle each other (for the first time since 1967) in Arlington, Texas.

8PM | ABC
Extreme Makeover: Home Edition
– This two-hour tear jerker sees the team build a new home for a legally blind widow raising six kids in an Iowa farmhouse.

8PM | CBS
A Gifted Man
– The doctor becomes the patient as Michael’s colleagues have to perform emergency surgery on him.

8PM | THE CW
Nikita
– Nikita runs into Alex when she tries to steal Semak’s black box, while Michael tries to scope out Percy’s secret plot and Alex returns to her childhood home.

9PM | CBS
CSI: NY
– Is a stalker the culprit when a cage fighter is murdered? The CSIs are on the case.

9PM | THE CW
Supernatural
– Dean dukes it out with Dick Roman, while Sam tries to help a teenage girl find her MIA papa, who’s also a supernatural hunter.

10PM | CBS
Blue Bloods
– When Erin’s informant is murdered, she teams up with Danny to find the killer.

10PM | IFC – 2ND SEASON PREMIERE
Portlandia
Andy Samberg guests in the opener, as a mixologist who catches the eye of Carrie.

10:30PM | IFC – 2ND SEASON PREMIERE
The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret
– The title of the season premiere says it all: “Todd’s Terrible Day Ends and His Next Terrible Day Begins.”

Worth flipping to during commercials:
– New America’s Most Wanted on Lifetime (9PM);
– On Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys (9PM, Sundance), Brent’s behavior leads Olivia to a major decision, while Peter has a talk with his daughter about whether or not she’s being bullied at school;
Infested! (9PM, Animal Planet) … totally must-watch-TV, but totally skeevy at the same time with all the creepy-crawlies;
Deadly Women (10PM, ID) is also about vengeance-motivated murders;
– It’s the fourth season premiere of Merlin (10PM, Syfy).

And the late-night line-up:
The Late Show with David Letterman (11:35PM, CBS): Kristen Bell;
The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (11:35PM, NBC): Glenn Close;
Jimmy Kimmel Live (12:05AM, ABC): Don Cheadle, Boyz II Men and David Cross;
Late Night with Jimmy Fallon (12:35AM, NBC): Judah Friedlander and David Duchovny;
The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson (12:37AM, CBS): Michael Clarke Duncan;
Last Call with Carson Daly (1:35AM, NBC): Michelle Monaghan (REPEAT).
