Who'll stop the rain

The New Jersey giants of music -- Jon Bon Jovi and Bruce Springsteen -- join forces to help raise money for those affected by superstorm Sandy in an all-star concert being titled "12-12-12" (6:30 p.m., various channels). Eddie Vedder, Eric Clapton, the Who and Paul McCartney also lend a hand. Where the ladies at?

The suite life

Correspondent Scott Wapner racks up the frequent-flier miles as he checks into "Hotel: Behind Closed Doors at Marriott" (8 p.m., CNBC), a new documentary that visits India, New York City and New Orleans, all in the name of making sure the mini-bars are properly stocked.

Making a list

"Barbara Walters Presents the 10 Most Fascinating People of 2012" (8:31 p.m., KSTP, Ch. 5) shines the spotlight on E.L. James, Chris Christie, Gabby Douglas and Hillary Rodham Clinton. All worthy names, but the honor instantly means nothing if Walters even mentions Honey Boo Boo.
