When You Wish Upon a Pickle: A

Se­same Street Spe­cial / 7:00pm (HBO) Sea­son 49 of the ven­er­a­ble chil­dren’s series is sched­uled to launch next week­end, but this charm­ing 50-minute stand-alone spe­cial makes a de­light­ful pre­lude for the up­com­ing new episodes. The story re­volves around a mys­te­ri­ous pickle that ap­pears to have un­canny pow­ers, be­cause when it is de­liv­ered to Se­same Street, neigh­bor­hood friends Elmo, Abby and Bert are de­lighted to see their wishes start­ing to come true.

Col­lege Foot­ball / 7:30pm (4) To stay alive in the Col­lege Foot­ball Play­off dis­cus­sion, the Notre Dame Fight­ing Ir­ish will have to keep win­ning, and win big. Se­nior wide­out Miles Boykin has been help­ing them do just that and will be called on again tonight when the Ir­ish host the Flor­ida State Semi­noles. As an in­de­pen­dent, Notre Dame will not play in a con­fer­ence cham­pi­onship game.

MOVIE “Cloud 9” / 8:00pm (Dis­ney) Dove Cameron (“Liv & Mad­die”) stars in this fam­i­lyfriendly new drama as Kayla, a prima donna snow­boarder whose team dumps her. She’s forced to train with Will (Luke Ben­ward, “Good Luck Char­lie”), a for­mer cham­pion branded as a fail­ure af­ter a ca­reer-end­ing wipe­out, and she be­comes as help­ful to him as he is to her. Jef­frey Nordling (“Body of Proof”) also stars.

MOVIE “It’s Christ­mas, Eve” / 8:00pm (Hall­mark) In­terim school su­per­in­ten­dent Eve Morgan (LeAnn Rimes) makes her liv­ing trav­el­ing around and try­ing to turn around the for­tunes of fail­ing schools, but she’s sur­prised when she is as­signed to visit one in her home­town. In the course of events there, she meets sin­gle dad Liam Bai­ley (Tyler Hynes, “Un REAL”), head of the school’s mu­sic depart­ment, which is cling­ing to life by a thread.

MOVIE “Soror­ity Stalker” / 8:00pm (Life­time) 12:01am (Life­time) Aya, who owns a spa, bumps into a woman in dis­tress who turns out to be a soror­ity sis­ter. She’s badly dis­con­certed, though, when this new­comer, Taryn, re­veals her source of sor­row is the same guy Aya has just moved to Los An­ge­les to start a new life with. Ob­vi­ously never hav­ing seen a Life­time movie, Aya doesn’t hes­i­tate to let Taryn move in with her.

Miles Boykin and the Notre Dame Fight­ing Ir­ish host the Flor­ida State Semi­noles Satur­day.
