On TV this weekend

FRIDAY

Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas, 8 p.m., ABC The networks aren't wasting any time cramming Christmas specials down our throats. We're still sleeping off yesterday's gastronomic derring-do, and you're already giving us Seuss? Maybe this is the year that poor dog doesn't get tortured for the first 20 minutes

Good Luck Jessie: NYC Christmas, 8 p.m., Disney Good Luck Charlie and Jessie come together to form one giant super special. If you even know what those shows are, you're either an overjoyed kid or a parent reading a book while this is on.

The Elf on the Shelf: An Elf's Story, 8:30 p.m., CBS Little elves are employed to watch children's behavior to help Santa make his list, but one realizes some kids have bigger problems than worry about what some fat old guy thinks of them. Happy holidays!

Garth Brooks, Live From Las Vegas, 9 p.m., CBS If you ever wanted to see Garth Brooks at the Wynn Las Vegas, bad news: His three-year run is over. The good news is that you can watch his final performance here. Without the triple-digit ticket prices, too.

SATURDAY

Let It Snow, 8 p.m., Hallmark How do you like your syrupy, feel-good holiday movies? Telling you that careerism is pointless and shallow, and you should spend your time rebuilding log cabins in Maine? Or …

Dear Secret Santa, 8 p.m., Lifetime … A little more direct, with a woman going back to the house she grew up in to take care of her sick dad? Don't worry, this one intimates ambition is dumb, too.

SUNDAY

The Soul Train Awards, 8 p.m., Centric Just because it's Thanksgiving weekend doesn't mean there isn't another music awards show to watch.

Keeping Up With the Kardashians: A Very Merry Christmas, 8:30 p.m., E! Just to clue you into how fake this family is, they've already made a Christmas episode. Somehow it's worse than when Top Chef makes its Halloween episode in July.

SEASON PREMIERE Treme, 9 p.m., HBO A new season of this New Orleans-based show is just the thing to count down to Christmas. If by "brand-new season" you mean a mere five episodes in what will be the show's fourth and final season.

MIDSEASON FINALE The Walking Dead, 9 p.m., AMC Now that we've had two weeks of not having to deal with any of the main characters — ironically the best two weeks TWD has had in years — it's time to kill a bunch of 'em off. Why does the first half of this season feel like a mulligan of the second half of last season? — Joshua Gillin [email protected]
