Today’s Top Picks


Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer

8 p.m. on CBS

The beloved “Animagic” tale of the most famous reindeer of all offers a thoughtful lesson about discrimination. Young Rudolph is teased by the other reindeer and excluded from their games because his nose is different. His taunters sing a different tune, though, when Rudolph uses the trait to keep Christmas from being canceled. Burl Ives is the voice of Sam the Snowman, who narrates the story and renders the title tune (of course) plus “A Holly Jolly Christmas.”


Swamp Thing

8 p.m. on CW

Still wearing the outward appearance of Alec Holland (Andy Bean), Swamp Thing (Derek Mears) takes Abby (Crystal Reed) to a part of the swamp that’s blighted with the encroaching rot, unwittingly putting her life in danger, in the new episode “Brilliant Disguise.” Elsewhere, Lucilia (Jennifer Beals) lures Avery (Will Patton) into the swamp under false pretenses, while Maria (Virginia Madsen) meets with the leader (Michael Beach) of a shadowy finance group called The Conclave.



9 p.m. ET on FOX

Shea (Fernanda Andrade) narrowly manages to rescue Ethan (Evan Whitten) from a dire situation, while Ty (Gerardo Celasco) is forced to make a difficult decision for the sake of his family in the new episode “FILE 6.” Elsewhere, LeBlanc (John Slattery) takes matters into his own hands to fight his degenerative brain disease, while Gina and C.M. (Eve Harlow, Michael Mosley) get to know each other better after escaping from the hospital. Jason Butler Harner and Elizabeth Cappuccino also star.


Let’s Make a Deal Primetime

9:01 p.m. ET on CBS

For tonight’s new holiday primetime edition of the venerable daytime game show, host Wayne Brady welcomes special guest Phil Keoghan. The Emmy-winning host of “The Amazing Race” is on hand to present one lucky trader a chance to win a very special reward: an outdoor, adventure-themed trip of a lifetime.
