En­e­mies: The Pres­i­dent, Jus­tice &

the FBI / 7:00pm (Show­time) 1:00am (Show­time) 4:45am (Show­time) There’s a dou­ble mean­ing be­hind “You’re Fired,” the fi­nale to this ex­am­i­na­tion of his­tor­i­cal ten­sions be­tween Amer­i­can pres­i­dents and their FBI team. First, those two words were a catch­phrase for Don­ald Trump as host on TV’s “The Ap­pren­tice.” More cur­rently, the phrase ref­er­ences Pres­i­dent Trump’s fir­ing of FBI Di­rec­tor James Comey, which set in mo­tion events that could lead to the big­gest con­sti­tu­tional cri­sis in U.S. his­tory. It’s a still-break­ing story re­volv­ing around Spe­cial Coun­sel Robert Mueller’s in­ves­ti­ga­tion into an al­leged Rus­sian at­tack on the 2016 U.S. elec­tion. Danc­ing With the Stars: Ju­niors

/ 8:00pm (7) The re­main­ing celebrity kid cou­ples ad­vance to the fi­nals in “The Fi­nale: Hol­i­day Spe­cial.” Be­fore that, though, judges Mandy Moore, Val Ch­merkovskiy and Adam Rip­pon, along with hosts Jor­dan Fis­cher and Frankie Mu­niz, join all 12 Ju­niors kid cou­ples and their men­tors for a big group dance. The first round of tonight’s com­pe­ti­tion starts as the fi­nal­ist cou­ples reprise a fa­vorite dance from ear­lier in the sea­son. Then, Round 2 chal­lenges them to cut loose in a freestyle per­for­mance to a hol­i­day-themed song.

The Flash / 8:00pm (50) “Else­worlds, Part 1” kicks off a highly an­tic­i­pated new three­night cross­over event that opens when Barry Allen and Oliver Queen (Grant Gustin, guest star Stephen Amell) awaken to re­al­ize some­thing has caused them to switch bod­ies with each other. They’re des­per­ate to un­der­stand what up­set the time­line to cause this shift, but when the mem­bers of Team Flash don’t be­lieve their story, the two he­roes re­al­ize they need the help of Su­per­girl (guest star Melissa Benoist). Coun­ter­part / 9:01pm (Starz) 11:01pm (Starz) 1:04am (Starz) Acad­emy Award win­ner J.K. Sim­mons re­turns in his dual role as this head-spin­ning (but sadly un­der­watched) sci-fi se­ries re­turns for its sopho­more sea­son. Sea­son 1 saw low-level United Nations em­ployee Howard Silk (Sim­mons) dis­cov­er­ing a se­cret por­tal to an al­ter­nate re­al­ity. Ul­ti­mately, Howard and his alt-world dop­pel­ganger wound up trapped in each other’s worlds. As the story re­sumes, both Howards must adapt to their new re­al­i­ties.

J.K. Sim­mons stars in “Coun­ter­part” Sun­day on Starz.
