If you think a new year means a lot of new pro­gram­ming, you’re mostly wrong. Here’s what to watch and what to avoid on tele­vi­sion this week:

Mon­day: “En­chanted” 7 p.m., NBC: A win­ning Amy Adams car­ries this slight tale of a fairy­tale princess in mod­ern-day New York.

“New Year’s Rockin’ Eve Cel­e­brates Dick Clark” 7 p.m., ABC: Jenny McCarthy and Fergie host a trib­ute to the most fa­mous New Year’s counter-downer ever.

“Dick Clark’s Prime­time New Year’s Rockin’ Eve With Ryan Seacrest 2013” 9 p.m., ABC: Tonight’s count­down (in­ter­rupted only by your lo­cal news and a ton of com­mer­cials) features per­for­mances by Brandy, Tay­lor Swift and Pit­bull.

“New Year’s Eve With Car­son Daly” 9 p.m., NBC: I can’t rec­om­mend watch­ing Car­son Daly if your goal is to stay awake un­til mid­night.

Tues­day: “Par­ent­hood” Dale Roe is your Go-to Guy for use­ful in­for­ma­tion. He writes guides on ev­ery­thing from al­ler­gies to TV shows to lo­cal events to QR codes. What topics would you like to know more about? Send an email to droe@states­man. com.
