How I Met Your Mother
8 p.m. on CBS
"The Rebound Girl"
It's all about big decisions on tonight's HIMYM. Ted and Barney take a big step and Robin tries her darndest to keep Lily and Marshall from moving to Long Island. Don't move to Long Island, Lily! You'll end up like this!
Bored to Death
9 p.m. on HBO
"Forget the Herring"
Bored to Death gets a guest star in the form of Isla Fischer. And Ray and George try to make up for their wrongs. Ray and George trying things? Together? Awesome. Also, Jonathan trying to deal with the likes of Miss Fischer? That's going to be great.
Dancing With The Stars
8 p.m. on ABC
It's down to three couples and tonight they'll each dance their last dances - two each with one freestyle - before the mirror ball finds its new owner. My money is on - and I cringe at my own thoughts - Rob Kardashian. Though our resident DWTS expert has her money on Ricki Lake, so I guess we'll just have to wait and see!
2 Broke Girls
8:30 p.m. on CBS
"A Very Merry Christmas Thanksgiving"
2 Broke Girls is still in time-out until they give Han a real character instead of "degrading asian stereotype," but the thought of Kat Dennings dressed up as a cantankerous Mrs. Clause is too much of a draw for me to ignore it. (Max and Caroline take extra work as worker's in a department store's little North Pole getaway to boost income for their cupcake business.)
8:00 p.m. on Fox
I keep hoping Terra Nova will get better, and this episode is just another opportunity for folks like me. On the menu this week: stale murder cases and a Sixer infiltrator. Hmm, that doesn't sound as promising as it should.
10 p.m. on CBS
McGarrett somehow goes to North Korea (I'm guessing some major sneaking is involved since they don't tend to let Americans in), but hey, JIMMY BUFFET is a guest star. Plus, he plays an old buddy of Terry O'Quinn's character. Okay, CBS, we're listening.
With MGM quickly recuperating from its financial meltdown that left a bevvy of developing projects in limbo, the last week has seen the studio's long-delayed RoboCop reboot picking up steam. On the heels of hiring Brazilian director Jose Padilha to helm the highly anticipated film (stepping in for Darren Aronofsky), the Lion's Head has now brought rising star writer Josh Zetumer in to pen the screenplay.
Neither player is a household name to American audiences, but neither was Paul Verhoeven when he directed the original in 1987. Padhila is best known for making the cop franchise Elite Squad while Zetumer has turned in buzzworthy but unproduced scripts for Infiltrator and Vale at Warner Bros. and also wrote drafts for Paramount's Dune remake and an abandoned fourth installment (chronologically) of Universal's Bourne franchise. At the pace that MGM is looking to produce RoboCop, which is targeted as its first full franchise redeployment, this will be Zetumer's first film to go into production.
I don't have much to go on with RoboCop other than love for the original film and its Irvin Kershner-directed sequel, so I've got no reason not to be hyped about seeing Detroit's finest officer back on the beat. Now the question is: who could do their best Peter Weller impersonation?

Glossy magazine Vanity Fair is already benefiting from publishing the first photos of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes’ new baby, Suri, by hitting a record 4.3 million page views on their Web site in just one day.
The October issue features a 22-page photo spread of the Cruise family shot by celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz.
The issue hit newsstands in New York City and Los Angeles on Sept. 6, but the world could view the photos online at vanityfair.com late Tuesday night--and hits on the site rocketed to nearly three times the previous record for page views when the magazine posted a picture of Keira Knightley and Scarlett Johansson appearing nude for Tom Ford's Hollywood issue in February.
Meanwhile, new details have emerged about exactly how the magazine managed to keep its exclusive pictures a secret.
Comag Market Group Vice President Joe Bertolino, who distributes the magazine, said the operation was three weeks in the making and credits Vanity Fair editor in chief Graydon Carter with masterminding the exclusive deal.
Neither Carter’s staff nor members of Bertolino's marketing group were allowed to see the images ahead of time.
A private security firm was hired to guard the magazine as it was being printed and it shipped one day late, with the front of the issue covered by a protective piece of paper to prevent leaks.
Bertolino says security did catch an infiltrator at one distribution point from a competing weekly magazine.
He declined to name the publication, saying only that it was not owned by a "reputable" magazine company.
