On TV this Monday: The CW kicks off its annual DC crossover event, 9JKL stages a mini-Royal Pains reunion and the Fashion Police hand in their badges. Here are 10 programs to keep on your radar:
Arrowverse Crossover Begins, Fashion Police Ends and More
Crisis on Earth-X crossover (Night 1 of 2, two hours): Green Arrow, Supergirl, The Flash and Legends‘ White Canary lead their teams into battle after Earth-X villains crash Barry and Iris’ wedding. (Get scoop; watch promo; view photos.)
Editor’s Note From Matt Mitovich: If you’re wondering if as a fan of only one or some of these shows you “have to” watch all four parts, be advised that Part 1 alone includes significant, independent plot developments for Supergirl, Arrow, The Flash and Legends.
CMA Country Christmas
Luke Bryan, Alan Jackson, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, Kelsea Ballerini, Brett Eldredge, Trisha Yearwood and Chris Young perform; Reba McEntire hosts.
Series finale: Melissa Rivers hosts this farewell special, looking back at the last 22 years of the franchise as well as the lasting legacy of her mother, the late Joan Rivers.
Kevin Can Wait
When Kevin goes undercover as a janitor at a car dealership, he inadvertently becomes top salesman of the month.
In this TV-movie, a young angel (Pure Genius‘ Brenda Song) finds herself stuck on Earth after becoming entangled in a love triangle; Jason Biggs (Orange Is the New Black), Ricky Mabe (Preacher), Andrew Bachelor (Meet the Blacks) and Andy Favreau (Aquarius) co-star.
A Very Pentatonix Christmas
The singing group is joined by Jennifer Hudson, AGT winner Darci Lynne Farmer and former Tonight Show host/car aficionado Jay Leno. (Perhaps he’ll cover “Jesus Take the Wheel”?)
Series premiere (two hours): This Jersey Shore knockoff follows eight presumably spray-tanned twentysomethings who spend the summer in Florida.
The Good Doctor
Melendez has doubts about the procedure to save a young boy from the Congo with severe congenital heart anomalies. (Who’s scrubbing out?)
The team aids a father/daughter when their plane crashes nearby; Paige helps Walter deal with his feelings about Cabe’s potential prison stint. (Dear TV: Please Stop Telling Geniuses to ‘Put It in English’)
