Santa Claus Is Coming To Town, 8 p.m., ABC
This is the one in which the young Kris Kringle looks alarmingly like Justin Bieber, and features one of the best anti-Christmas villains ever, the Burgermeister Meisterburger. And here’s a little something to keep in your head all day.
CMA Country Christmas, 9 p.m., ABC
Nobody does Christmas better than our country music friends. Take note of all the American Idol alums in this list of performers: “Country music stars share their favorite holiday traditions and memories; Jennifer Nettles hosts; performances include Lauren Alaina, Amy Grant, Faith Hill, Little Big Town, Martina McBride, Scotty McCreery, Braid Paisley and Kellie Pickler.”
The Santa Clause, 7 p.m., ABC Family
I am not really a Tim Allen fan, but I love this movie, and I cry every year at the end.
