Week in Sloth

Thursday 15

“The iHeartRadio Jingle Ball 2016” (KWBQ-19 7pm) Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, Niall Horan... I’m just gonna stop there.

“Nashville” (CMT 10pm) ABC’s country music melodrama heads to CMT, where it probably belonged in the first place.

Friday 16

“Justice League Action” (Cartoon Network 7pm) Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman team up for some animated action.

“The 85th Annual Hollywood Christmas Parade” (KWBQ-19 7pm) Erik Estrada, Dean Cain and Montel Williams are among the hosts. Talk about your Hollywood glamor!

Saturday 17

My Christmas Love (Hallmark 6pm) In this holiday rom-com, a hopeless romantic starts receiving gifts from “The 12 Days of Christmas” courtesy of an anonymous suitor ... which sounds more annoying than romantic. I mean, it’s pretty much all birds.

Sunday 18

“Rob & Chyna Baby Special” (E! 9pm) Please let me know if you’re planning on watching this special episode of Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna’s reality show, in which their kid (Dream Kardashian, by the way) gets popped out into the world, so that I can go ahead and delete you from my friend list on Facebook.

Monday 19

“First Lady Michelle Obama Says Farewell to the White House: An Oprah Winfrey Special” (KRQE-13 7pm) Oh, boy. I can’t wait for the totally non-racist online commentary after this thing airs.

“The Wall” (KOB-4 9pm) LeBron James and Chris Hardwick (that’s a weird team-up) are the executive producers behind this gameshow in which people drop balls down the world’s largest Pinko board in order to win big cash prizes.

Tuesday 20

“Michael Bublé Sings and Swings” (KOB-4 7pm) The jazz/pop singer shows up for his once-a-year TV gig.

“Terry Crews Saves Christmas” (KWBQ-19 7pm) The musclebound actor and a group of food, beverage and design experts crash people’s houses and show them how to host awesome holiday parties.

“Tony Bennett Celebrates 90: The Best is Yet to Come” (KOB-4 8pm) I love ya, Tony. But at 90, that title is probably not true.

Wednesday 21

“TIME Presents: Milestones 2016—A Tribute to the Stars We’ve Lost” (Reelz 7pm) From the looks of this past year, this is gonna be a very long show.

“Game Changers With Robin Roberts” (KOAT-7 9pm) Lin-Manuel Miranda, Michael Phelps, Chance the Rapper and Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha are among the people Robin thinks changed “the game” this year. Hanna-Attisha is the pediatrician who first sounded the alarm over Flint’s water crisis. Chance starred in a Kit Kat commercial.

“Joe’s Pub Presents: A Holiday Special” (IFC 8pm) Tony Hale (from “Arrested Development” and “Veep”) hosts a night of comedy and music featuring Bridget Everett, Jen Kirkman, Nick Thune and The Dap-Kings.

“Surprise! Instant Xmas Carol!” (TBS 8pm) Celebrity carolers (Conan O’Brien, Charles Barkley, Shaquille O’Neal, Jane Lynch, Ludacris, Alfonso Ribeiro, Fred Willard, T-Pain) sing “unique” renditions of classic Christmas carols for people in need of some extra holiday cheer.
