Santa Fe New Mexican - - BEST BETS -

7 p.m. KOAT-7 DIS­NEY PREP & LAND­ING

Santa’s elves suf­fer job burnout, too. In this charm­ing an­i­mated spe­cial, Dave Fo­ley gives voice to Wayne, a mem­ber of the elite elf team that pre­pares for and over­sees Santa’s ar­rival at chil­dren’s houses. He was hop­ing for a pro­mo­tion; in­stead, he has to stay where he is and train an an­noy­ingly overzeal­ous new as­sis­tant (voice of Derek Richard­son). Of course, no Christ­mas spe­cial would be com­plete with­out a cri­sis and a les­son to be learned.

7 p.m. IFC BARONESS VON SKETCH SHOW

Some­one who is a novice to the Ayahuasca med­i­ta­tion ex­pe­ri­ence has an ad­verse re­ac­tion to the res­i­dent shaman’s ex­pla­na­tion of what to ex­pect dur­ing the cer­e­mony in the new episode “Some­times It’s Good to Be the Shaman.” In other seg­ments, a vet­eri­nar­ian is taken aback by a client’s re­ac­tion to news that her cat must be put down, and three co-work­ers ad­mire how a fourth col­league takes stances that usu­ally are po­lit­i­cally in­cor­rect. Carolyn Tay­lor, Mered­ith Mac­Neill, Aurora Browne and Jen­nifer Whalen star.

8 p.m. SYFY NIGHT­FLY­ERS

If this 10-part adap­ta­tion of an early thriller by Ge­orge R.R. Martin seems to have sped by, part of the credit goes to the au­thor’s grip­ping sto­ry­telling style. Also, this TV saga only started un­fold­ing a week ago, with Syfy air­ing it in a Sun­day-Thurs­day nightly pat­tern. In any case, this story about hor­rors aboard a space­ship reaches its fi­nale tonight with “All That We Have Found,” in which new or­ders leave the Night­flyer and its pas­sen­gers hang­ing. Gretchen Mol and Eoin Macken star.
