“Dirty Jobs” (9 p.m., Discovery). Mike works with turkeys, reindeer and parade floats in a special holiday episode.
“Conan” (11 p.m. TBS). Finally, a super cool lineup: Seth Green, Tim Meadows and musical guest Broken Bells.
“ILM: Creating the Impossible” (8 p.m., Encore). OK, let’s try this again. It was scheduled last week, then got yanked. But it’s scheduled to air again tonight. It’s a documentary look behind the scenes at George Lucas’ special-effects studio, Industrial Lights & Magic. Should be super cool for all you (us) “Star Wars” geeks.
“Third Reich: The Rise” (9 p.m., History). WWII highlights are back! It’s just like the old days on History Channel!
“Late Show with David Letterman” (11:35 p.m., CBS). Paul Rudd is a guest. “SNL” notwithstanding, he’s never not funny.
“Daily Show” (11 p.m., Comedy Central). Ricky Gervais is the guest. Like Rudd, he’s never not funny.
“Biggest Loser” (9 p.m., NBC). The season finale. Zzzzzzz.
