1) “Kennedy Center Honors,” 8-10 p.m. Sunday, CBS. It’s easy to confuse Sally Field with Linda Ronstadt (shown here). Both are 73, 5-foot-3, bubble-faced, passionate and extremely talented. Field has two Oscars, Ronstadt has 12 Grammys; now both will be honored, in an annual show known for brilliant performances and smart little profile films. Also honored will be conductor Michael Tilson Thomas, R&B group “Earth, Wind and Fire” and “Sesame Street,” the first time a TV show is included.
2) “The Voice,” 8-10 p.m. today and 9:01 p.m. Tuesday, NBC. This is semi-finals week for the three big reality competitions. That starts here, with eight singers – three with John Legend, two with Blake Shelton and Kelly Clarkson, only one with Gwen Stefani. Tonight, they perform duets from the ’80s and viewers vote; on Tuesday, half will be eliminated. Meanwhile, Fox’s “The Masked Singer” is 8 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday, ousting three of its six singers; CBS’ “Survivor” is 8 p.m. Wednesday.
3) “Batwoman” and “The Flash,” 8 p.m. today and Tuesday, CW. With the Earth in jeopardy (again), the superheroes converge. There are two people who have played Superman (Brandon Routh, who’s now Ray/The Atom, and Tyler Hoechlin) and two who’ve played The Flash (Grant Gustin and John Wesley Shipp). Even Black Lighting – whose show has its “winter finale” at 9 p.m. today – is there. Fans can catch a talk show at 9 p.m. Tuesday … then watt until Jan. 14 for the final two hours.
4) “The Moodys” conclusion, 9 and 9:30 p.m. today and Tuesday, Fox. As the family gathered for the holiday, secrets were unpeeled. Sean (Denis Leary) has cancer. Sean Jr. has shaky schemes … his sister Bridget cheated on her husband … their brother Dan broke up with his girlfriend Amy. But Dan sent some plaintive texts and Amy suddenly arrived … just as he was falling for his friend’s girlfriend Cora. That’s where things start tonight; a funny mess centers on people with good hearts and bad choices.
5) “Ellen’s Greatest Night of Giveaways,” 8 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, NBC. This may be your Christmas fantasy: At your door is Michelle Obama, bearing gifts. Or Justin Timberlake or Jennifer Aniston or even an action-movie star – Jason Momoa (“Aquaman”), Michael B. Jordan (“Black Panther”) or Robert Downey Jr. (“Iron Man”). All of them are part of this special, in which Ellen DeGeneres has gifts for deserving people – at home, at school and even in her studio audience.
6) “Modern Family,” 9 p.m.Wednesday, ABC. A great series – five-time winner of the best-comedy Emmy – is winding down; it labels this episode “The Last Christmas.” Cam doesn’t want to spoil the holiday, so he’s keeping his plan — interviewing for a football head-coach job out of state — secret. Mitchell is getting suspicious about Cam’s claim that he has to go visit his family. Meanwhile, Haley has another reason to savor the holiday: Now that her twins are born, she’ll be re-united with wine.
7) More sitcom Christmases. “Modern Family” is part of a holiday-episode spree on ABC. That’s on Tuesday (“The Conners,” “Bless This Mess,” “Mixed-ish” and “Black-ish”), Wednesday (“The Goldbergs” at 8, “Single Parents” at 9:31) and Friday (“American Housewife” and “Fresh Off the Boat,” at 8 and 8:30). At 9 p.m. Thursday, CBS’ “Mom” has Christy recounting her mom’s evil deeds on Christmases past; at 9:31, catch either CBS “Carol’s Second Act” of NBC’s “Perfect Harmony.”
8) “Gone With the Wind” (1939), 8 p.m. to midnight ET Friday and 4-8 p.m. Saturday, Turner Classic Movies. Here is a true classic, both epic and intimate. It won eight Academy Awards, including best picture; the American Film Institute puts it No. 6 on its all-time list. That’s in a weekend that has two other winners of best-picture Oscars. At 8 p.m. ET Saturday, TCM has “Gandhi” (1982); at 7 p.m. Sunday, ABC has “The Sound of Music” (1965), with Julie Andrews and soaring Rodgers-and-Hammerstein songs.
9) “Christmas Caroler Challenge” debut, 8 and 9 p.m. Sunday, CW. When did life get so competitive? NBC has the second half of “Making It,” its charming crafts show, at 10 p.m. today and Tuesday and 9-11 p.m. Wednesday. ABC continues “The Great Christmas Lights Fight” at 8 and 9 p.m. today, then starts “The Great American Baking Show,” from 9-11 p.m. Thursday. Then CW launches this six-hour show, pitting a dozen caroling groups with different styles. It will conclude from 8-10 p.m. Dec. 22-23.
10) More family shows. The great “Grinch” cartoon reruns at 7 and 7:30 p.m. Friday on TNT, then 8 p.m. Saturday on TBS. More cartoons? On Thursday, ABC has “Olaf” and “Toy Story” reruns at 8 and 8:30; on Saturday, CBS has “Rudolph” at 8 and “Frosty” at 9; NBC has “How to Train Your Dragon” and “Trolls,” at 8 and 8:30. And music? The Disney Channel has a holiday party at 8 p.m. Friday; ABC reruns its “Little Mermaid Live” from 8-10 p.m. Saturday, mixing the 1989 cartoon with live songs.
