new and noteworthy tv: 12/21-12/27

Moving forward ‘next week’ posts are now being titled ‘new and noteworthy tv’ with the full date range. The content will still include things that are technically new -and/or- noteworthy and might not already be in your queue. And although the procrastinator doesn’t endorse everything, procrastinator picks will still be underlined just to give you a heads up on what might be worth a watch, which over the holidays probably won’t be much.
