TV best bets for Dec. 9-15

The Telegraph (Macon) - - Television - BY CHUCK BARNEY

DON’T MISS: “Else­worlds” – Su­per­heroes unite! It’s time for an epic, three-part mashup of “The Flash,” “Ar­row” and “Su­per­girl.” The cross­over fun – and weird­ness – be­gins when Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) and Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) wake up one morn­ing and re­al­ize they have swapped bodies with each other. They set off to find out what dis­turbed the time­line to cause such a rad­i­cal role re­ver­sal and even­tu­ally re­al­ize they need Su­per­girl’s (Melissa Benoist) help. Fol­low along with “The Flash” (8 p.m. Sun­day), “Ar­row” (8 p.m., Mon­day) and “Su­per­girl” (8 p.m. Tues­day) on The CW.

Other bets: SUN­DAY: The first sea­son of “Danc­ing With the Stars: Ju­nior” comes to an end in a hol­i­daythemed fi­nale as the four re­main­ing kid cou­ples strut their stuff in two dances and a cham­pion is crowned. (8 p.m., ABC).

MON­DAY: Reba McEn­tire is our host for “CMA Coun­try Christ­mas.” The spe­cial fea­tures per­for­mances by Tony Ben­nett, Dan + Shay, Brett El­dredge, Amy Grant, Diana Krall, Dustin Lynch, Martina McBride, Brad Pais­ley and oth­ers. (8 p.m., ABC).

TUES­DAY: There’s a new dilemma on “NCIS.” The team’s hol­i­day plans are put on hold when the mur­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion of a Navy vet­eran in­cludes the dis­cov­ery of a new­born baby who has no iden­ti­fi­ca­tion and no ap­par­ent ties to a fam­ily. (8 p.m., CBS).

TUES­DAY: On “Darci Lynne: My Home­town Christ­mas,” ven­tril­o­quist Darci Lynne Farmer, the 2017 win­ner of “Amer­ica’s Got Tal­ent,” cel­e­brates the hol­i­days Ok­la­homa style. Join­ing her are her var­i­ous pup­pets, along with Kristin Chenoweth, Toby Keith, Hunter Hayes, Pen­ta­tonix and Lind­sey Stir­ling. (9 p.m., NBC).

WED­NES­DAY: On “Ellen’s Game of Games Hol­i­day Spec­tac­u­lar,” Ellen DeGeneres mixes laugh­ably naughty with play­fully nice. Games in­clude “It’s a Won­der­ful Wife,” “Dan­ger Word,” “Blind­folded Mu­si­cal Pack­ages,” “Dizzy Dasher,” “Know or Go” and “Hot Hands.” (8 p.m., NBC).

THURS­DAY: This week’s new episode of “Mom” is ti­tled “Foot Pow­der and Five Feet of Vodka.” Christy’s search for the per­fect Se­cret Santa gift leads her to dis­cover Adam has been hid­ing some­thing from Bon­nie. (9 p.m., CBS).

FRI­DAY: Are you ready for “The 87th An­nual Hol­ly­wood Christ­mas Pa­rade”? It’s a mas­sive pro­ces­sion down Hol­ly­wood Boule­vard, with fancy floats, march­ing bands, celebri­ties and bloated bal­loons. (8 p.m., The CW).

SATUR­DAY: The feel-good hol­i­day movies just keep com­ing. In “Christ­mas Pen Pals,” the cre­ator of a dat­ing app (Sarah Drew) heads home for the hol­i­days and runs into her high school boyfriend (Niall Mat­ter). We’ll let you fig­ure it out from there. (8 p.m., Life­time).
