It's "catch up before all that Christmas telly begins" time!

Black Mirror
1x01 The National Anthem
Media-satirising anthology series from the brain of Charlie Brooker, which in fairly typical me fashion has already finished before I'm even starting it (still, at least this was only three episodes -- I'm a series behind with Misfits and I've not even got going on the 15-part Story of Film). Very dark, very good. Anthology series are in short supply so it would be nice if this took off.
[Watch it (again) on 4oD.]

Dave's One Night Stand
3x05 Tommy Tiernan [season finale]

The Graham Norton Show
10x08 (16/12/11 edition)
[Watch it (again) in HD on iPlayer.]

Have I Got News For You
42x09 (16/12/11 edition; extended repeat) [2nd watch]
A particularly good episode, I thought; and, as ever, even better extended.
[Watch the extended version (again) on iPlayer.]

How I Met Your Mother
7x07 Noretta
[Watch it (again) on 4oD.]

Life's Too Short
1x06 Episode 6
Apparently this has been picked up for a second series. Not sure how I feel about that.

Live at the Apollo
7x06 Episode 6 [2nd watch]
[Watch it (again) in HD on iPlayer.]

2x06 Episode 6
A season finale of an episode, even though there's a Christmas special next week... well, it was on two days ago, but... yeah.
