Ghost Intervention

Ghost Intervention
9/8c TLC
Tracking down ghosts at a Native American burial ground is just another day at the office for the four psychic mediums who are followed in this new unscripted series as they travel across the country, helping the undead cross over to the other side. In the opener, the mediums come to the aid of a Massachusetts family who claim to have an angry shadowy figure residing in their basement. Talk about an unwelcome houseguest! — Karen Andzejewicz

Christmas in Canaan
8/7c Hallmark
Billy Ray Cyrus stars in this 2009 cable movie, which is based on the novel written by country legend Kenny Rogers and Donald Davenport. Cyrus plays a widower who tries to put an end to his young son's budding racial bias by making the boy spend time with a black classmate that he's been picking on. The boys end up forming a friendship that lasts through the years, but their bond is tested when racial tension in their small town reaches a boiling point. — Brie Hearn

Heisman Trophy Presentation
8/7c ESPN
For the first time in five years, five finalists have been invited to New York City for the awarding of college football's top honor. The 75th ceremony promises to be one of the most intriguing, with quarterbacks Tim Tebow of Florida (who gets a ballot, as a former winner) and Colt McCoy of Texas losing ground in awful performances last week, while Alabama RB Mark Ingram and Nebraska lineman Ndamukong Suh (Defense? At the Heisman ceremony?) gained a wealth of support. The wild card in the voting is Stanford RB Toby Gerhart, who led the nation in TDs (26), was second in rushing (144.7 ypg) and just happens to be an excellent student. — Roger Leister

It's a Wonderful Life
8/7c NBC
Every time a bell rings, an angel gets its wings. And every year, James Stewart brings good cheer in director Frank Capra's poignant 1946 fantasy about a luckless small-town family man who learns just how lucky he really is. And, in the process, reminds us all what values are genuinely most important. What began as a Christmas story written by Philip Van Doren Stern and mailed to his friends has become an uplifting cinema classic for the ages. — Dean Maurer

Video Game Awards
8/7c Spike
The home video-game industry sure has come a long way since Pong. (For those of you under 30, that primitive table-tennis simulation started it all.) Tonight's seventh annual awards ceremony  salutes those assemblies of bytes that didn't bite and teases gamers with a look at what's in store to hit stores soon, including the next installment in the Halo franchise. — Michael Chant
