Tonight's TV Hot List: Tuesday, Dec. 22, 2009 - Featured

* Scrubs (9/8c ABC) J.D. has gone through many changes throughout the last nine seasons as he moved from timid intern to experienced doctor to mentor for the next generation of docs. But some things never change. He finds he still hungers for approval, and this time he wants it from Turk. Lucy, meanwhile, faces her own demons when she tries to summon the courage to perform a medical procedure on a real, live person. * Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel (10/9c HBO ) Bryant Gumbel and the program's correspondents gather for a roundtable discussion of the year's top sports stories and their favorite segments of 2009. There should be plenty of winners to choose from, considering the fact that the series has won the Sports Emmy for Outstanding Sports Journalism for 12 of the last 14 years. Segments considered could include a look at the world of professional bull riding; athletes carrying guns; concussions in high-school football, and a profile of skier Bode Miller. * National Geographic's Most Incredible Photos: Afghan Warrior (8/7c National Geographic ) If there is one thing National Geographic is celebrated for, it's the amazing photography, which allows outsiders a rare glimpse inside foreign cultures both near and far. This documentary lets us in on how some of those moments are captured, as it follows acclaimed photojournalist and National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence Reza Deghati on assignment in Afghanistan, where he hopes to capture an image that could become a new national icon. * Dirty Jobs (9/8c Discovery Channel) Ah, Florida, the Sunshine State - world famous for its oranges, beaches, theme parks and worm-grunting. Wait, what? Mike visits the popular vacation destination, where he learns how to coax earthworms to the surface of Apalachicola National Forest and goes clamming at the Alligator Harbor Aquatic Preserve. * Family Style (9/8c Food Network ) The Food Network is airing a sneak peek at this new unscripted series, which follows Joey and Melissa Maggiore, siblings from San Diego, as they each try to open their own eateries in sunny SoCal. Will the friendly rivalry between these two foodies be sweet or salty? Only time will tell. Source Here
