Nathan For You [Comedy, 10p]
Discomfiting Nathan for You started the 3rd season on a hilarious note with his zig-zagging — and ultimately very sweet — battle with Best Buy and its matching policies, and neurotically (and peculiarly) charming host Nathan Fielder seems poised to go out on the same bang. In season finale, “The Hero,” Fielder takes a somewhat uncomfortable looking in previews average joe and quests to turn him into a national hero — assuredly in his own quixotic manner.         

Elf [ABC Family, 9p]
When I tire of the crowds in midtown this time of year and get into a holiday slump Buddy always knows how to reel me back in.
