1) “Gone With the Wind”(1939), 8 p.m. to midnight ET, Turner Classic Movies. We can start the weekend with a true classic (shown here), No. 6 on the American Film Institute’s all-time list. A documentary about the making of the film follows at midnight; the booming “Music Man” (1962) precedes at 5:15.
2) “The Blacklist,” 8 p.m., NBC. This month, TV will show lots of families getting along cozily. Then, by comparison, there’s Liz. She once thought her FBI informant – Ray “Red” Reddington – was her biological father; then she learned that this “Red” merely stole the identity of her real father. And her mother? That’s Katarina Rostova, a Soviet spy … now secretly living in the apartment across the hall. Tonight, before the show starts a long winter break, Liz learns more and her crisis builds.
3) “Hollywood Christmas Parade” 8-10 p.m., CW. Here’s a taped version of the Dec. 1 parade, with lots of Hollywood folks (including grand marshal Mario Lopez) involved. Music performers included Dionne Warwick, Phil Vassar and Brandon Jenner (Caitlyn’s son), plus “American Idol” alumni David Archuleta, Ace Young Diana DeGarma, Brandon Rogers and Mikalah Gordon.
4) More Christmas. This is the week ABC’s comedies have their holiday episodes; that concludes with “American Housewife” and “Fresh Off the Boat,” at 8 and 8:30 p.m. HBO has the witty “Love Actually” (2003) at 6:45 p.m. and cable has TV movies. “Christmas Stars” (8 p.m., Lifetime) is new; others are reruns … including a clever one: “Chasing Christmas” (2005), 7 p.m. ET on Ovation, has Tom Arnold face the spirits of Christmas Past (Leslie Jordan), present (Andrea Roth) and future (Jed Rees).
5) ALSO: It’s sci-fi night … with little help from the Syfy Channel. Syfy has a new “Van Helsing” at 10 p.m., but it canceled “The Expanse” after three seasons; tonight, the fourth season reaches Amazon Prime. Meanwhile, Hulu has the third and final season of Marvel’s “Runaways.” Also on streaming (but not a sci-fi tale), Netflix has “6 Underground,” a Michael Bay action film with Ryan Reynolds.
