1) “West Side Story” (1961), 8 p.m ET., Turner Classic Movies. On the day Steven Spielberg’s version reaches theaters, TCM has the original from 60 years ago. It’s flawed – heavy-handed plot, cliched (almost cartoonish) characters and the casting of non-singers (Natalie Wood and Richard Beymer, shown here) who were then dubbed. But all of that is overridden by a confluence of genius – music by Leonard Bernstein, lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, choreography by Jerome Robbins. The flaws fade; this won 10 Oscars, including best picture.
2) “Blue Bloods,” 10 p.m., CBS. Alex Kingston (“ER”) returns to a role she played five years ago. She’s Sloane Thompson, a friend of Frank (Tom Selleck) and a former commander of the London police. A cyber-attack on the New York police forces Danny to release a suspect; Frank asks Sloane for help. That’s in a no-rerun night, with “S.W.A.T.” at 8 (an unlikely alliance is formed, to rescue an abducted woman) and “Magnum P.I.” at 9 (a Christmas Eve ransomware attack).
3) “Nancy Drew,” 9 p.m., CW. Nancy and FBI agent Park are getting closer, while probing the origins of the Frozen Hearts Killer. Meanwhile, Nancy’s friends solve the mystery behind a college student’s death. That follows an 8 p.m. rerun of “Penny & Teller: Merry Fool Us.”
4) “A Dickens of a Holiday,” 8-10 p.m., Hallmark. Determined to make her town’s 100t Victorian festival a success, Cassie (Brooke D’Orsay) invites Jake (Kristoffer Polaha), a former classmate who became an actor and is now an action star. We’re betting they might squabble, then get along. Also at 8, Lifetime debuts “Holiday in Santa Fe”; Mario Lopez stars and his daughter plays his niece. And FX has “Office Christmas Party”(2016), a fairly good Jason Bateman film that repeats at 10.
5) Streaming: Some shows get extra lives. When the well-crafted “Expanse” was dropped by Syfy after three seasons, fans lobbied. Amazon Prime ordered two full seasons and a six-episode final one that starts today. Then there’s “Sex and the City,” which ended its HBO run in 2004 … had big-screen movies in 2010 and 2012, and now has “And Just Like That …,” which debuted Thursday on HBO Max. Three of the original stars – Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon – are back.
