1) “A Christmas Proposal,” 8:30 p.m., CBS. For the first time in nine years, CBS has a made-for-TV movie. It has two, actually – Christmas films on consecutive Sundays. This one takes a half-hour to get its plot in motion, but is mostly worth the wait. Jessica Camacho (“All Rise”) is radiant as a smart and skilled chef who gets by as an Uber-type driver; Adam Rodriguez (“CSI: Miami”) plays a lawyer who – like most Christmas-movie guys – keeps staring at his laptop. (They’re shown here.)
2) Miss Universe, 7-10 p.m., Fox. Yes, Steve Harvey still seems to be everywhere. Some of his gigs (his talk show and “Little Big Shots”) are gone now, but he still has “Family Feud” and a primetime judge show (debuting Jan. 4 on ABC) and other gigs, including this pageant from Isreal. Miss Universe has been around for almost 70 years, 19 of them when it was owned by Donald Trump.
3) “Succession” season-finale, 9 p.m., HBO. It was a long wait (two years between the end of one season and the start of the next) for a short season (nine episodes). Tonight, two mismatched siblings – Roman (Kieran Culkin) and Shiv (Sarah Snook) – form an alliance, after learning of Mattson’s plans for the company. That reruns at 11:20, after “Insecure” at 10:07 and “Curb Your Enthusiasm” at 10:37.
4) “Finian’s Rainbow” (1968), 8 p.m. ET, Turner Classic Movies. There’s been a lot of attention to musicals now, with Broadway reviving, Steven Spielberg’s “West Side Story” reaching movie theaters and Lin-Manuel Miranda’s films streaming. But here’s one of the best, directed by (surprisingly) Francis Ford Coppola. After stealing a pot of gold, an Irishman (Fred Astaire) and his daughter (Petula Clark) move to the American South, with a leprechaun (Tommy Steele) in pursuit.
5) And more: CNN has its annual “Heroes All-Star Tribute” (8 and 10 p.m. ET) and CW has “Greatest Holiday Commercials Countdown” (9 p.m.). There are plenty of Christmas movies, including Chevy Chase in “Christmas Vacation” (1989), at 7 and 9:15 p.m. on AMC; and real-life sisters Kimberly Williams-Paisley and Ashley Williams in “Sister Swap: Christmas in the City,” at 8 on Hallmark. That wraps up a story that started with “Sister Swap: A Hometown Holiday” … which reruns at 6 p.m.
