1) “Lego Masters Celebrity Holiday Bricktacular,” 8 p.m., Fox. Sprawling over three days and four hours, this is a sorta-pleasant trifle. Four stars – Robin Thicke, Cheryl Hines, Finesse Mitchell and (shown here) the late Leslie Jordan – link with past contestants who were popular, but didn’t win. The celebs mostly do artsy details, letting the experts build sturdy creations.
2) “Mary Berry’s Ultimate Christmas,” 9 p.m., PBS. For a half-century, Berry has been a popular author of British cookbooks. Her American fame came more recently, when she judged seven seasons of “The Great British Bake Off.” Now, at 87, she shows us how to have a tasty Christmas dinner that’s “stress-free.” Hint: There’s less stress on the Dec. 25, if you make things days in advance.
3) “The Shop Around the Corner” (1940) and “The Apartment” (1960), 8 and 10 p.m. ET, Turner Classic Movies. Both were adapted into musicals. “Shop” became “She Loves Me” … and was rebooted as two more movies – including “You’ve Got Mail.” “Apartment, became “Promises, Promises.” It’s a moving drama/comedy that won five Oscars (including best picture), plus nominations for Jack Lemmon and Shirley MacLaine.
4) “Midsomer Murders,” any time, www.acorn.tv. Tom Conti has had an impressive career, including an Oscar nomination in “Reuben Reuben.” In this movie-length mystery, Conti, 81, plays Sebastian Cabot, a retired cop rocked by a murder in a police-retirement home. This film is smart and entertaining; so is next week’s – a sharp jump from last week’s too-tangled season-opener.
5) ALSO: Reality shows have wrapped, leaving networks with holes to fill. NBC reruns “Shrek 2” (2004) at 8 p.m., with the debut of the “Wheel” game show at 10. At 8:15, ABC has pro football (simulcast on ESPN and ESPN2), with a match-up that has lost some luster: The Rams, last year’s Super Bowl champions, are 4-9; they visit the Packers, 13-5 last year, who are 5-8.
