What to Watch: 12/12/2015

A hunk returns to 30 Rock, a kicker (and his team) get(s) stuck in a moment, and poor Rudolph finally gets to play some little reindeer gamesS (presumably) lead our Saturday calls of WtW:

JASON’S PICK:
30 for 30: Four Falls of Buffalo [ESPN, 10p]
The joys of victory and the agonies of defeat are wrapped up in ESPN’s always-excellent sports doc series’ in-depth look into the early-1990s Buffalo Bills, who for four years in a row battled their way into football’s marquee game — only to have their hopes diced in a different manner each year. While it may hold extra appeal for the small-ish pie slice of fans of this star-crossed Western New York NFL franchise (as it so happens, I am part of this tribe), as with most episodes of the 30 For 30 series, its story is universal — in this case, of a Charlie Brown-like team in a small market and its resilient fans who may miss the kick every time, yet consistently summon the courage (or brute stupidity) to pick themselves up and try again.

NAVANI’S PICK:
Saturday Night Live [NBC, 11:30p]
Will Chris Hemsworth keep his shirt on the whole episode as host? I hope not. Kudos to Chicago native, Chance the Rapper, on his first appearance as music guest.

KATHERINE’S PICK:
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer [CBS, 8p]
Rudolph is showing again, and you could watch “The Flight Before Christmas” at 9 p.m. or switch to ABC Family for Elf. Getter get your best TV Watching Holiday Sweater.
