The end of 2011 has finally come, and as the biggest weekend for partying loomes in the near future. We thought we would give some satellite TV programming options to those who are looking to keep things a little lower key. With seemingly every major network, plus the news channels, ringing in 2012 with some kind of live special, we thought we’d give you a little help deciding who to spend your New Year with. It’s possible of course that there’s more than one thing that strikes your fancy, so hopefully santa brought you a new DVR or a Big Screen TV to enjoy all the New Years Progamming.
