Taraji’s White Hot Hol­i­days / 8:00pm (5) She doesn’t have fel­low “Em­pire” star Ter­rence Howard with her this time, but Taraji P. Hen­son holds forth with the sec­ond an­nual edi­tion of this sea­sonal va­ri­ety spe­cial. She’s cer­tainly not alone, since the guest lineup in­cludes fel­low “Em­pire” vet­er­ans Jussie Smol­lett and Taye Diggs, plus a very mu­si­cal lineup fea­tur­ing Phar­rell Wil­liams, Missy El­liott, Ali­cia Keys, Snoop Dogg, Run-DMC’s Dar­ryl McDaniels and TLC.

Fall­ing Wa­ter / 10:00pm (USA) Burton (David Ajala) goes on the trail of the Woman in Red (Anna Wood), while Tess and Bill (Lizzie Brochere, Zak Orth) en­counter a fa­mil­iar face while fol­low­ing a lead on the Boy.
