PICK OF THE NIGHT
Reggie Watts: Spatial
Most stand-up specials stick to the same formula: a comic riffing on current events and personal foibles. But it would be foolish to expect Reggie Watts to be standard. The relentlessly creative comedian-musician stole scenes on Comedy Bang! Bang! and now annoys James Corden nightly as his Late Late Show bandleader, but in his spare time, he’s put together a new special that showcases all his idiosyncratic strengths.
This Is Us
NBC, 9 p.m.
What will the emotional family drama’s first Christmas look like? I’d tell you, but it was hard to tell through all the tears.

ABC, 10 p.m.
S.H.I.E.L.D. and Ghost Rider become unlikely allies when the lives of all of L.A. hang in the balance. It’s about time New York City got a break from total destruction!
