American Horror Story: Hotel (FX, 10:00 p.m.) — The Countess has her hands full as Liz should be considered armed and dangerous, and a flurry of guests are learning more about her true intentions and looking to get out of the hotel.
Who Is Donald Trump? (A&E, 10:00 p.m.) — Friends, enemies, constituents, and celebrities weigh in on the polarizing figure who aims to be the Republican presidential nominee. Words like “bully” and “magnate” play a prominent role. We’re guessing that — after last night’s debate — this probably won’t show up in Jeb Bush’s DVR.
Jingle All the Way (AMC, 8:00 p.m. AND 10:00 p.m.) — The greatest Sinbad Christmas movie of all-time airs back-to-back on the same network that greenlit Breaking Bad and Mad Men. All these years later and AMC is still doing the Lord’s work.
Die Hard (Encore, 8:00 p.m.) — The Christmas movie to end all Christmas movies features broken glass, a trip through the air vent, and a screaming Reginald VelJohnson. Yippee ki-yay, mother truckers.
Alaskan Bush People (Discover, 9:00 p.m.) — This is what it has come to, people. After last week’s slate of fall finales, we’ve got to watch Matt and Co. handle some car problems while Browntown prepares for winter. Bah humbug.
Nashville (ABC, 10:00 p.m.) — Your normal Nashville is preempted by a one-hour special that follows the cast as they tour and perform music from the show. Can’t get much more meta than a non-fiction documentary chronicling a real-life tour to promote a fictional television show about touring musicians.
