"Animal Odd Couples," local band Now, Now on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon"

Lil Wayne

Minneapolis resident Catina Angline is one of the contestants on "Let's Make a Deal" (2 p.m., WCCO, Ch. 4). Maybe she'll win tickets to see host Wayne Brady when he performs at Minnesota's Grand Casinos on Dec. 29 and 30

Literally speaking

Who has time to read books these days? Instead, cram in some classics as TCM features "Great Adaptations," including the 1960 version of "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" (7 p.m.), "Call of the Wild" (9 p.m.) and "The Adventures of Robinson Crusoe" (12:45 a.m.).

Strange bedfellows

What do you get when you cross a goose with a tortoise? Answer: "Animal Odd Couples" (7 p.m., KTCA, Ch. 2), a new "Nature" special that explores unusual relationships between different kinds of beasts. No worries; the content is G-rated.

That was fast

Bands usually have to toil for a while before landing a gig on a late-night TV show. Not Now, Now. The Minneapolis trio, which released its second album earlier this year, will make its national TV debut on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" (11:35 p.m. KARE, Ch. 11).
