to watch

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, 8 p.m., CBS Another Christmas, another year of that fabulous children's tale that teaches kids it's okay to make fun of someone until their deformity becomes socially acceptable in some way. Then it's fine to pretend you never made fun of them in the first place.

The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, 10 p.m., CBS Rihanna, Justin Bieber and Bruno Mars all perform as a bunch of genetic freaks parade around in their underwear back on Nov. 7. We're wondering if they'll cut out Karlie Kross wearing that Native American headdress, because so many people called it disrespectful.

SEASON FINALE Sons of Anarchy, 10 p.m., FX We're sure everything will work out just fine for Jax. This show is known for its happy endings.
