1) “A Clusterfunke Christmas,” 7 p.m., Comedy Central. If you’ve seen a few Christmas movies, you’ll like this; if you’ve seen a lot of them, you’ll love it. It skillfully skewers their cliches, including the basic plot: A citydweller – accomplished, attractive, lonely – goes to a small town for a business deal … then discovers home-style warmth. Ana Gasteyer and Rachel Dratch (left and right) wrote a delightful script and co-star as the inn-owners. Vella Lovell stars (center), with Cheyenne Jackson as the hunky guy with an ax.
2) “Saturday Night Live,” 11:29 p.m., NBC. The “Clusterfunke” movie – created by “SNL” alumni Dratch and Gasteyer – should put you in the mood for re-visiting this show. Here’s a rerun, with Rami Malek hosting and Young Thug as music guest; next week, a new episode has Billie Eilish doing both.
3) Football. It’s time for the conference championships – some of them determining which four teams will get a shot at the national title. That peaks at 4 p.m. ET, when Georgia and Alabama (ranked No. 1 and 4 in the Associated Press poll) collide on CBS … and Cincinnati (No. 3) hosts Houston (No. 16) on ABC. Other key games have Oklahoma State and Baylor (5 and 9) at noon ET on ABC and Michigan and Iowa (2 and 15) at 8 on Fox. Notre Dame and Ohio State (6 and 7) wait nervously.
4) There are four more conference championship games, spread through the day. ESPN has Kent State and Northern Illinois at noon ET and Appalachian State at Louisiana (ranked No. 20) at 3:30. Fox has Utah State at South Dakota State (No. 19) at 3 p.m.; ABC has Pittsburgh and Wake Forest (17 and 18) at 8. A bonus game has Southern Cal at California, at 11 p.m. on Fox Sports1; both have 4-7 records.
5) “It’s a Wonderful Life” (1946), 8-11 p.m., NBC. The Christmas classic airs today and on Christmas Eve. The same is true of another gem: “A Christmas Story” (1983) is 6 and 8 p.m. on TBS. More Christmas: Freeform reruns “Frosty” and “Rudolph” at 7:10 and 7:45; Lifetime debuts “Kirk Franklin’s A Gospel Christmas” at 8. Meanwhile, Ovation has the season-finale of the likable “Frankie Drake Mysteries” at 7 p.m. ET; it has major stories – some of them life-changing – for each of the four stars.
