Happy New Year, Charlie Brown / 8:00pm (7) Good grief! Who assigns elementary-school children “War and Peace”? Charlie Brown’s teacher, that’s who. He has to read it over the Christmas break and write a report, but holiday distractions keep getting in the way. He ends up leaving a New Year’s party and sitting outside to read, but that doesn’t end well. Chad Allen (“Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman”) provides the voice of Charlie Brown in this 1986 “Peanuts” special.
Rudolph’s Shiny New Year / 9:00pm (7) While it’s not up to par with the all-time holiday-season classic “Rudolph the RedNosed Reindeer,” this animated special still is a lot of fun. Red Skelton, Frank Gorshin and Morey Amsterdam provide voices for the story of the red-nosed deer, with the help of a whale and a caveman, setting off across time to find Happy — the missing New Year baby. The mission is fairly urgent: If Happy stays lost, it will be Dec. 31 forever.
Lucifer / 9:01pm (5) Two young people who moved to Los Angeles are found dead due to poisoning, prompting Lucifer and Chloe (Tom Ellis, Lauren German) to hunt for whoever is responsible, in “Lady Parts.” Maze (Lesley-Ann Brandt) asks Chloe out for drinks — which Chloe initially doesn’t realize is the result of a bet made with Lucifer, who’s in for a surprise when that is discovered. DB Woodside, Tricia Helfer and Aimee Garcia also star.
Timber Creek Lodge / 10:00pm (Bravo) At Louise’s insistence, Mark and Jenna face stern repercussions from Jamie, the new lodge manager, for their violation of several lodge rules in the new episode “Resting Chef Face.” Later, the staff is sorely tested by several last-minute demands from the Nubry Bloggers, a group of Los Angeles fashionistas. Aggravating the tense situation even more, Nikita stubbornly refuses to be a team player, resulting in a blow-up with Louise over a discrepancy with tips.
