The middle of December brings us several finales and a few specials. Like every week, GeekTonic covers the TV scene with a complete listing of premieres, finales and specials for the week.
The last “Larry King Live” episode airs Thursday on CNN with Mario Cuomo as the final guest – appropriate since he was King’s first guest over 25 years ago
