Sit-down comedy

“Bill Cosby: Far From Finished” (7 p.m. Saturday, Comedy Central) lives up to its title, as the 76-year-old comic delivers fresh material with the enthusiasm of a kid on open-mic night. Cosby may no longer have the legs to stand for an entire 90-minute set, but his routine is as strong as ever.

Can’t hardly wait

No one should put up a Christmas tree before Thanksgiving and no one should be doing an Xmas movie this early, either. Oh, well. Cable TV can’t help themselves. “Window Wonderland” (7 p.m. Saturday, Hallmark) revolves around two New York City department store employees vying for a high-profile window-dressing job.

Funny girl

You might get goose bumps when Carol Burnett yanks on her ear after receiving “The Kennedy Center Mark Twain Prize” (7 p.m. Sunday, TPT, Ch. 2), a star-studded celebration with great clip choices and heartfelt tributes from Tim Conway, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler and Julie Andrews. You’ll be glad you spent your time together.

Bedside manners

Mount Palms Hospital, perhaps the nation’s most depressing medical center, is the setting for the new workplace comedy “Getting On” (9 p.m. Sunday, HBO). There aren’t many big laughs, but you can’t help but root for the mostly female characters, including Alex Borstein’s down-on-her-luck nurse.
