The Boob Tube: Must-See TV For The Week Of November 29, 2010
This week is bringing us some real small-screen delights, from an episode of “Gossip Girl” that Entertainment Weekly promises is “the best-of-the-season-so-far” to a new Sunday night series on A&E called “The Hasselhoffs,” which is, well, exactly what it sounds like. But the real treasures are Showtime’s documentary “The Other City,” the finale of “America’s Next Top Model,” and the premiere of “Top Chef All-Stars.” After the jump, previews and more.
