It's a Paul call when the shticks-and-skits show delivers the second of three live December episodes. (Jeff Bridges hosts next week.) It's the story of two Pauls tonight when comic actor Paul Rudd, star of the forthcoming film How Do You Know with Jack Nicholson and Reese Witherspoon, teams up with the SNL players to host a roast of the day's topical happenings. Meanwhile, rock icon and former Beatle Paul McCartney is in the wings and takes flight on the Studio 8H music stage in the wake of the deluxe reissue of McCartney and Wings' celebrated 1973 album, Band on the Run. — Dean Maurer

College Football
2:30/1:30c CBS
Things are looking up on the gridiron for the military academies. For the first time since 1996, Army, Navy and Air Force are all bowl eligible coming into this game. The Midshipmen have been mopping the decks with the Black Knights of late, winning eight in a row without allowing a touchdown in the last three meetings. There's little doubt that Army has improved, boasting the nation's 10th-ranked rushing attack; but the Middies are ranked third in rushing, and are looking for their second straight 10-win season. — Dave Roeder

Frosty the Snowman
8/7c CBS
The joyous holiday perennial — originally telecast in 1969 — about a jolly, happy snowman with "a corncob pipe and a button nose, and two eyes made out of coal" returns to spread Christmas cheer. Much of the fun is provided by Jimmy Durante's great narration and Jackie Vernon's perfect voicing of Frosty. The delightful half hour is followed by the sequel, Frosty Returns, narrated by Jonathan Winters. — Tim Holland

Taliban


8/7c CNN
"It's very important that people know who we're fighting," Norwegian journalist Paul Refsdal says at the top of this insightful look at a band of Taliban fighters. Accented by an incisive Anderson Cooper interview of Refsdal, the documentary captures both the mundane (a rock-throwing contest) and the disturbing (an attack on a U.S. convoy). Of the latter, Refsdal — who was held hostage for six days — dryly observes of the fighters that "they're not afraid of dying, but they're not very accurate" when it comes to firing their weapons. — Jeff Gemmill
