Top pick

The A.V. Club Hosted By John Teti (Fusion, 11 p.m.): The first season of The A.V. Club’s TV spin-off comes to a close tonight, and to mark the occasion, host John Teti invited his colleagues from the web (present company included) to gather ’round a big, long table for an early Thanksgiving—in that there was turkey and stuffing and cranberry sauce, and the literal givings of thanks. The staff shares the pop culture that made them grateful during a year that did its damnedest to squeeze every last drop of gratitude out of us; elsewhere John catches up with TV host extraordinaire Mark L. Walberg, and viewers receive pointers on how to make their non-televised Thanksgiving dinners as trendy as possible.

Wild card

There’s… Johnny! (Hulu): [Holds envelope up to forhead, à la Carnac The Magnificent.] What you can say to your TV when John Teti’s onscreen during tonight’s finale. But also: The title of a period piece set behind the scenes at Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show, salvaged from the wreckage of Seeso. It’s Larry Sanders by way of I’m Dying Up Here, wrapped around archival footage of actual Tonight Shows from 1972.
