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.
