Thursday 30

“Happy New Year, Charlie Brown” (KOAT-7 7 p.m.) Why no love for Arbor Day, Peanuts gang?

Friday 31

“Dick Clark’s Primetime New Year’s Rockin’ Eve With Ryan Seacrest 2011” (KOAT-7 9 p.m.) Willow Smith performs. Isn’t it past her bedtime?

“NBC New Year’s Eve With Carson Daly” (KOB-4 9 p.m.) Bono and The Edge show off tunes from Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark . Odds are one of them will be injured.

New Year’s Eve Live With Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffith (CNN 10 p.m.) Um. OK.

“New Year’s Eve Live!” (KASA-2 11 p.m.) Nancy O’Dell hosts. Brandy is a “special correspondent.” So, clearly, this one’s very news-oriented.

“MTV’s New Year’s Bash 2011” (MTV 11:30 p.m.) Apparently, Snooki will be dropped on Times Square. Apparently, this is not a joke.

Saturday 1

“122 nd Annual Tournament of Roses Parade” (KOB-4 9 a.m.) So many years, so many dead flowers.

“Oprah’s Guide to OWN” (OWN 10 a.m.) The Oprah Winfrey Network is open for business.

“Dan Vs.” (HUB 7 p.m.) HUB’s newest cartoon begins with its jerky, anger-prone star taking out his lifelong grudge on … New Mexico? Yeah, seriously. The entire Land of Enchantment.

“Primeval” (BBC America 7 p.m.) After an 18-month hiatus (on a cliffhanger, no less!), we finally get a fourth season of BBC’s dinosaur-hunting sci-fi series.

Sunday 2

“Rise of the Jellyfish” (Discovery 7 p.m.) Why does every nature documentary now sound like a bad Syfy Channel movie?

Monday 3

The Craigslist Killer (Lifetime 7 p.m.) Honestly, getting a Lifetime movie starring Billy Baldwin is the worst punishment this guy can receive.

Tuesday 4

“Caprica” (Syfy 4 p.m.) Like this “Battlestar Galactica” spinoff? Well, you’d better tune in today, because Syfy is burning off the last five episodes in one no-frills, “everything must go” marathon.

“Live to Dance” (KRQE-13 7 p.m.) Paula Abdul is back with a brand-new, totally original reality competition in which she … judges America’s next great dancer. Whoopee!

“V” (KOAT-7 8 p.m.) “V” returns with original lizard babe Jane Badler in tow!

“Permanent Mark” (Spike TV 9 p.m.) Dude travels around the world getting tattoos. Dude has a pretty cush job.

Wednesday 5

“The 36 th Annual People’s Choice Awards” (KRQE-13 8 p.m.) Lemme guess: Justin Bieber, “Two and a Half Men” and anything having to do with Twilight .

“Extreme Weight Loss: Celebrities Tell All” (KOAT-7 9:01 p.m.) Can anyone in America explain to me why people dieting is such fascinating television all of a sudden?
