Ahead of the Curve: Weekly pop culture calendar

We don't know about you, but the weather outside where we are is definitely starting to turn frightful. Here’s your round-up of don't miss pop culture moments to bunker down with this week:

• The finale of “Amazing Race” starts tonight at 8 p.m. on CBS, and two of the three teams competing in the final leg have the chance to be the first all-female team to take the win (plus, you know, that $1 million prize). Who are you pulling for?
• Monday kicks off a week-long marathon of “Vampire Diaries.” If you missed the first 10 episodes of the second season, you can do a speedy catch-up by tuning in to the CW from 8 p.m. – 10 p.m. ET/PT Monday through Friday.
• Tis the season for Christmas specials, and this one will feature the pop queen of the Christmas song, Mariah Carey. “Merry Christmas to You” premieres Monday on ABC at 9 p.m. ET, and will feature Mariah belting out holiday tunes, including some from her album, "Merry Christmas II You."
