Reindeer games

Anyone staying with CBS for the evening might get a severe case of whiplash. The lineup starts with the family-friendly classic "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" (7 p.m., WCCO, Ch. 4) and concludes with "The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show" (9 p.m., WCCO, Ch. 4). Kids, your bedtime tonight is 8:59 p.m.

Having a ball

The late Whitney Houston's most famous acting role was in "The Bodyguard," but her finest piece of acting came as the fairy godmother in a soulful revival of "Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella" (7 p.m., Ovation), a 1997 musical that also shows off the talents of Brandy, Whoopi Goldberg and Bernadette Peters.

Cleveland rocks

Frustrated by the Minnesota Vikings' up-and-down season? Just be glad that their adventures haven't been documented by a reality series. "NFL Road Tested: The Cleveland Browns" (9 p.m., Travel) looks at how professional players manage to go on the road and never miss the team bus.
