Sons of Anarchy
10/9c FX
Regular viewers have seen Jax tell Stahl: "My club finds out and I'm dead," in the introductions to a number of this season's episodes. Expect a resolution in tonight's 90-minute finale, and while Jax is unlikely to end up dead (the series has been renewed), the viperous ATF rogue (Ally Walker) does hold the whip hand. But as the episode begins, Jax, the pregnant Tara and Abel are a family, and Clay and Gemma and Opie and Lyla are experiencing something approaching domestic bliss as well while the soundtrack plays Joan Armatrading's "This Charming Life." The tune changes quickly. Hell's Angels veteran Sonny Barger has a cameo as a prisoner. — Paul Droesch

Christmas in Rockefeller Center


8/7c NBC
What's green all over, weighs 12 tons, is 74 feet high and is 40 feet in diameter? It could only be the famed Rockefeller Christmas tree. This holiday special branches out when Natalie Morales and Al Roker host the 78th annual lighting of the tree in Manhattan. Adding glow and twinkle to the proceedings are performances of timeless holiday songs and current hits. Among the selection of slated singers: Mariah Carey, Sheryl Crow, Josh Groban, Jessica Simpson, Susan Boyle, Annie Lennox, Katherine Jenkins, Charice, Kylie Minogue and Jackie Evancho. — Dean Maurer

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
8/7c CBS
The beloved Rankin-Bass chestnut — it was first telecast in 1964 — about the famous reindeer with the glowing red nose makes its annual broadcast appearance. Not the least of its many qualities is one of the greatest holiday soundtracks ever, with classics such as "Holly Jolly Christmas," "We're a Couple of Misfits," "There's Always Tomorrow" and, of course, the title tune. — Tim Holland

Shrek the Halls


8:30/7:30c ABC
In this 2007 holiday special, the green guy is preparing to celebrate his expanded family's first Christmas, but that doesn't mean he's softening up. In fact, visits by Donkey, Puss in Boots, and Gingy soon spiral this celebration totally out of control, leaving Shrek none too merry. With the same voice cast from the movies (including Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz, Eddie Murphy and Antonio Banderas), this top-notch production is a welcome Yuletide treat.

Raising Hope
9:01/8:01c Fox
Talk about getting the band back together. Jason Lee reunites with My Name Is Earl creator Greg Garcia on the latter's new sitcom in an episode that turns the local market into a hard-rock café. Lee plays Smokey Floyd, the former front man for a 1980s heavy-metal hair-band who was Burt's idol back when he wanted to be a rock star. But Burt had to give up his dream when Jimmy was born, and now the younger Chance tries to make amends by pairing his dad with Smokey at the Grocery-Palooza concert. — Joe Friedrich
