MOVIES

A Very Brady Christmas
Wednesday, Dec. 21, 8-10 p.m. (ABC Family)
Whether the idea strikes you as frightful or oh-so-delightful, the title of this 1988 TV movie pretty much sums it up.

It’s a Wonderful Life
Saturday, Dec. 24, 8-11 p.m. (NBC)
Even if you just watched it on Dec. 10, it will still add nicely to the background ambience while you’re wrapping presents. (Yes, you can switch on the former president’s narration again, if you feel it would be prudent at this juncture.)

COMEDY, VARIETY, AND REALITY

A Home for the Holidays
Wednesday, Dec. 21, 8-9 p.m. (CBS)
Sheryl Crow, Toni Braxton, Yolanda Adams, and the Goo Goo Dolls are all performers on the annual special that promotes adoption.
