1) “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” and “The Wizard of Oz” (1939), 7:30 and 8 p.m., TNT, with “Oz” repeating at 10:15. Here are two of the all-time greats, proving that family-friendly tales – ones with warmth and optimism – can be done with intelligence. “Grinch” (shown here) reflects the brilliance of Dr. Seuss and animator Chuck Jones. “Oz” peppers a lively story with strong music, including the Oscar-winning “Over the Rainbow.”
2) “The Voice,” 8-10 p.m., NBC. Next week is the show’s two-night finale. For now, the final eight singers perform and viewers vote. On Tuesday, we’ll learn the top four, heading to the finale; then viewers will be able to save one more.
3) “That’s My Jam Holiday Special,” 10 p.m., NBC. This hour is filled with “Saturday Night Live” alumni. Jimmy Fallon produces and hosts the show; joining him for music-oriented games are Fred Armisen, Ana Gasteyer, Rachel Dratch and Melissa Villasenor.
4) “The Great Christmas Light Fight,” 8 and 9 p.m., ABC. In the first hour, one home has been transformed into a giant present, alongside a 55-foot tree; in the second, a home seems like a gingerbread house fresh from the oven, complete with tasty smells. Other designs range from the North Pole (with a flying sled and hundreds of plush elves) to a “tunnel of Christmas,” with talking reindeer and outer-space Christmas aliens.
5) “Whitstable Pearl,” anytime, www.acorn.tv. This seaside town is strong on ambiance and tradition, That could be disrupted, alas, if the pub is sold to a developer. Emotions seethe … and a body is found. It’s a strong story that includes this show’s knack for empathy. That’s in the middle of a three-Monday, six-hour run. Tonight’s second hour, which has a surprising solution, revolves around a former film star, now a recluse in a local mansion.
