What's On: Glee-Dee-Dee
After Will (Matthew Morrison) discovered that his wife was not actually pregnant last week, the rest of the glee club's carefully plotted secrets will be revealed during tonight's fall finale. It is almost possible to outline the entire hour's events by glancing at tonight's set list of covers: "Don't Rain on My Parade" by Barbra Streisand, "You Can't Always Get What You Want" by The Rolling Stones, "My Life Would Suck Without You" by Kelly Clarkson, "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going" from Dreamgirls, "Don't Stop Believin'" by Journey and "Proud Mary" by Creedence Clearwater Revival. Take solace in tonight's melodrama knowing that Jane Lynch's Sue Sylvester will probably splash one of her scalding lattes in the face of a student.
Glee [9 PM, Fox]
The glee club has finally made it to sectionals, and their cohesiveness will likely be threatened when Quinn's (Dianna Agron) secret is revealed. Meanwhile, Sue (Jane Lynch) continues her plotting, Will (Matthew Morrison) ponders a life-altering decision, and the marriage of Emma (Jayma Mays) and Ken (Patrick Gallagher) nears. Eve returns to play Grace Hitchens, the glee club coach at Jane Adams Academy. The series will return in April.
Top Chef: Las Vegas [10 PM, Bravo]
Last week, Movieline calendar pin-up Bryan Voltaggio took home a Toyota Prius after acing the last quick fire challenge of the year, but tonight, the season 6 Top Chef is crowned. Will it be new Prius-owner Bryan, his twin brother Michael, or the burly Kevin Gillespie who has wowed the judges (including a pregnant Padma) with his simple home-cooking. The smart money is the contender with the massive pig tattoo but you'll have to tune in to find out who earns the $125,000 cash prize and $100,000 in Macy's merchandise. Maybe the Las Vegas visual cues will return for tonight's season closer.
Barbara Walters Presents the 10 Most Fascinating People of 2009 [10 PM, ABC]
Many questions will be answered during tonight's annual Barbara Walters special, namely, Who is the mystery pick?, Will Walters actually interview Michael Jackson's children or will she settle for another odd ABC sitdown with a random Jackson three, and how will Walters address ABC's recent clusterf*ck surrounding listmaker Adam Lambert? Aside from the controversial AMA performer and the Jackson children, the list includes Kate Gosselin, Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin, Tyler Perry, Lady Gaga, Jenny Sanford and Brett Favre.
The Nightmare Before Christmas [8 PM, Disney]
Before jumping down the rabbit hole with Tim Burton in March, for the eagerly anticipated Alice in Wonderland, bask in Burton's simultaneously haunting and kid-friendly holiday masterpiece. The film, which was directed by Henry Selick, is based on a poem of Burton's that sprang to mind after he noticed a store replacing Halloween toys with Christmas merchandise.
