What to Watch: Tuesday

December 23, 2008
Because it's Christmas week, lots of our favorite shows are in repeats. But there's a few fresh hours on television tonight guaranteed to delight and entertain. For the high-brow: PBS' Independent Lens. For the, ahem, not so high-brow: MTV's A Double Shot at Love. You decide. > 8:00 PM House, Fox (1 hr) REPEAT In this repeat from September, House tries to understand why patients who received transplants years prior keep dying. Bisexual doc Thirteen makes an appearance.

"Make it a Double"

> 9:00 PM Food Detectives, Food Network (30 min) NEW Queer Eye's Ted Allen hosts a new series looking at common food myths. This week, perfect for all those late-night holiday parties: Do spicy foods actually affect your sleep? > 9:00 PM Privileged, The CW (1 hr) REPEAT A live-in tutor deals with two spoiled twin sisters in Palm Beach. Their personal chef, Marco, is gay. In tonight's rerun, Top Model’s Nigel Barker guest stars! > 10:00 PM Independent Lens, PBS (1 hr) NEW So this listing isn’t gay per se, but it is of gay interest: Learn how the documentary Grey Gardens became a musical. > 10:00 PM A Double Shot at Love, MTV (1 hr) NEW Rikki and Vikki are identical bisexual twins trying to decide who is best suited for each of them. Of course, with it being a reality series, the pickings are slim: it’s either drunken idiot boys or skanky lesbians.
