Restrepo (National Geographic) — The television premiere of Tim Hetherington and Sebastian Junger’s critically acclaimed documentary about a U.S. Army platoon holding remote outpost in Afghanistan’s Korengal Valley (where Sal Giunta won his Medal of Honor). I haven’t watched this yet, but I’ve yet to hear anything bad about it. (Photo credit: Tim Hetherington. Trailers embedded below.)
Skating with the Stars (ABC) — Yeah, watch this instead of the documentary about American servicemen fighting the Taliban. That’s cool.
Chuck (NBC) — Linda Hamilton and Timothy Dalton guest star, making this the biggest episode of the season for time travelers from 1987.
Cake Boss (TLC) — Season finale. Tune in for a new season in, like, three weeks.
The Buried Life (MTV) — Season finale. Next on the young people’s bucket list: make $1 million from $25,000. Ooooh, I hope they put it in a mutual fund! This should be fascinating!
