Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas, 8 p.m., ABC Wow, the networks aren't wasting any time cramming Christmas specials down our throats.

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.
