‘Scorpion’ winter finale, ‘The Wall’ debuts, TV talk show reruns for the holidays

Scorpion -Christmas is only a few days away! It’s Monday and if you haven’t bought your gifts, might I suggest you hurry?

‘The Wall’ debuts: A game show with a look from the other side

The new game show “The Wall” debuts tonight on NBC. For fans of LeBron James, this is an exciting time as he’s been involved with the show as executive producer. Hosted by Chris Hardwick, the so called “wall” is in the middle of the arena and part of the game. While fans will need to see the show to decide if it is really worth the watch, the political jokes have already started (enter eyeroll here) and it’s rather annoying.
