We’re all about Christmas today — if from unlikely sources — as a Canadian show pulls a Brit trick with a free-standing holiday special, and a Canadian with a very American comic news platform hits Immigration and Culture Enforcement with some yuletide wordplay.
Schitt’s Creek Holiday Special [Pop, 10p]
The gang is back with a Christmas special. Johnny wants to celebrate with an old fashioned Rose Family Christmas. However, Moira brings a bad attitude when she goes Christmas tree shopping.
Full Frontal: Christmas On Ice [TBS, 10:30p]
We can count on Sam to bring both the festivity and the rampant sarcasm necessary for a 2018 Christmas season. She claims she will be actually on ice (skates) while dissecting ICE and it’s all to collect money to help its detained children (yes, the fact that our country detains children is something it has become normal to type).
ALSO ON TAP TONIGHT:
- Overt Broad City vibes (but in L.A.) with a Peep Show premise coming from YouTube’s latest original, Overthinking with Kat & June. Newcomers Tenea Itriago and Alexia Dox are the titular Kat and June respectively whose inner monologue is bared to us — with more familiar Sasheer Zamata and Justin Kirk looking on.
- That’s about it unless you like Vikings or WWE (New Day’s WWE 2018 Pancake Powered Year End Super Spectacular) on History and USA respectively.
