8 p.m. on WIS

Hot off their re­cent con­ge­nial cov­er­age of the Macy’s Thanks­giv­ing Day Pa­rade, not to men­tion their reg­u­lar morn­ing du­ties on “To­day,” Sa­van­nah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb join NBC col­leagues Al Roker and Craig Melvin for the tra­di­tional light­ing of this year’s enor­mous Christ­mas tree in mid­town Man­hat­tan, a 72-foot-tall Nor­way Spruce from Wal­lkill, N.Y. Musical per­for­mances by John Leg­end, Tony Bennett, Diana Krall, Kel­lie Pick­ler and Pen­ta­tonix, among oth­ers, pre­cede the mo­ment of il­lu­mi­na­tion.

Star

Upon her re­turn to Grav­ity Records, Carlotta (Queen Lat­i­fah) dis­cov­ers that much has changed, while Star (Jude De­mor­est) makes a star­tling dis­cov­ery when she meets Jack­son’s (Matthew Noszka) mother, Becky (guest star Kelly Sul­li­van) in the new episode “Roots and Wings.” Else­where, Si­mone (Brit­tany O’grady) turns to Nina (guest star Camila Banus) when An­gel (guest star Evan Ross) re­turns un­ex­pect­edly.

Fans of Shake­speare’s his­tory play about Richard III of Eng­land may pick up res­o­nances of that saga as this drama re­sumes Sea­son 5 with the new episode “The Reve­la­tion,” which opens with the coro­na­tion of patho­log­i­cally cruel Ivar the Bone­less (Alex Hogh An­der­sen) as king of Kat­te­gat. That oc­ca­sion is closely fol­lowed by the re­turn of Ivar’s un­cle Rollo (Clive Standen), the Duke of Nor­mandy, who played a part in Ivar’s vic­tory. Now, how­ever, Rollo seems more am­biva­lent in his loy­al­ties.
