From the annual NBC live musical to getting a sneak peek into Mariah Carey’s no-doubt bonkers world, there are some really fun TV offerings for the week of Dec. 4 through Dec. 9.
‘Mariah’s World’ premiere, 9 p.m., Sunday, E!
At the summer 2016 TCA press tour, Mariah Carey — perched languidly on a chaise’s lounge and sipping champagne, natch — described her reality show thusly, “We call it more a docuseries, because it feels like a documentary. Like, I don’t even watch reality [TV]. I don’t even know what that… I don’t even know what reality is, literally, like, in the terms of, like, real or not real.”
So buckle up! It’s Mariah’s world — we’re all just living in it.
‘Westworld’ finale, 9 p.m., Sunday, HBO
Viewers seem to be torn on “Westworld’s” first season, in terms of it paying off pretty much every fan theory on the Internet. But they will all surely tune in for the finale, which sees Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) embracing her identity and Ford (Anthony Hopkins) unveiling his exciting new narrative for the park.
‘Good Behavior,’ 9 p.m., Tuesday, TNT
Letty (Michelle Dockery) and Javier (Juan Diego Botto) are back together on the road — but they aren’t alone, as Christian (Terry Kinney) sets out to have Letty arrested once and for all.
‘Survivor,’ 8 p.m., Wednesday, CBS
“Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X” is turning into a fantastic season for this long-running reality show. There have been terrific blindsides, a drawing of rocks for only the third time in the show’s history and now two Tribal Councils in one hour on Wednesday, Dec. 7.
The final few episodes of “Survivor” Season 33 should be pretty exciting.
‘Hairspray Live!,’ 8 p.m., Wednesday, NBC
The NBC live musical has become a holiday season tradition. Whether you're watching ironically or sincerely, it's always a lot of fun -- and "Hairspray" looks to be no exception.
Maddie Baillio is about to burst onto the scene in the lead role, with supporting turns by an all-star cast that includes Harvey Fierstein, Kristin Chenoweth, Martin Short, Ariana Grande, Jennifer Hudson, Derek Hough and Sean Hayes.
'Taraji's White Hot Holidays,' 8 p.m., Thursday, FOX
For the second year in a row, FOX is airing a holiday special hosted by "Empire" star Taraji P. Henson. Terrence Howard is not joining her this year, but the show will still include dynamite musical performances by her co-stars Taye Diggs and Jussie Smollett, plus artists Pharrell Williams, Missy Elliott, Alicia Keys and TLC.
