"Person of Interest," 10 p.m., CBS
This show keeps getting better. The decision to make the bad cop Fusco a larger character and to give him an inkling of a conscience was smart – have Reese and Finch save Carter was even smarter. Tonight, “Detective Carter faces fallout from her encounter with Reese and Finch; the machine comes up with not one, but four Social Security numbers.” FOUR! Like they need to extra work during the holiday season.
"Prime Suspect," 10 p.m., NBC

"The Year With Katie Couric," 9 p.m., ABC
Oooo, Barbara Walters must be nervously looking over her shoulder at this year-end special: “Celebrities, newsmakers and special guests reflect on the events of 2011.”
