1) Football, everywhere. It’s time to settle the conference championships – and more. Three of these games could determine which four teams get shots at the national championship. At 4 p.m. ET on CBS, it’s Georgia (ranked No. 4) and Louisiana State (No. 2); Clemson (No. 3) faces Virginia at 7:30 p.m. on ABC and Ohio State (No. 1, shown in its 38-7 win over Wisconsin earlier this year) faces Wisconsin (No. 12) at 8 on Fox. There are three championship games at noon ET (ABC, ESPN, ESPN2), with others at 3:30 on ABC and 4 p.m. on ESPN.
2) All night, TNT. Here are some great moments for families to see and/or record. “Wizard of Oz” (1939) is at 5:15 p.m., followed by the brilliant “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” cartoon at 7:30 and the droll “A Christmas Story” at 8 and 10.
3) “A Christmas Love Story,” 8 p.m., Hallmark Channel. Sure, there are plenty of holiday films on Hallmark and beyond. But this one is under the “Hall of Fame” banner, which tends to mean bigger budgets and more quality. Kristin Chenoweth plays a choir director who’s having trouble writing a big tune for her pageant. Then she meets a talented kid and his widowed dad (Scott Wolf).
4) “Bull,” 8 p.m., CBS. In a rerun, a priest has been found behind the wheel of a church van that was involved in a hit-and-run. He says he wasn’t the driver … but can’t say who was, because he found out during a confession. Also at 8, NBC has a “Voice” rerun, trimming the field from 10 to eight. There are performances by Meghan Trainor and Mike Sabath, plus a duet with John Legend and Kelly Clarkson.
5) “Saturday Night Live,” 11:29 p.m., NBC. Jennifer Lopez has her third time as host … and the first in which she’s not the music guest. That job goes to DeBaby, the rapper formerly dubbed Baby Jesus.
