TV Junkie: Timberlake on SNL; Lots of NFL on Sunday, Lots; "Survivor" Finale on Sunday Night!
Tonight - Saturday
"Sunset Boulevard" (TCM, 5:00 p.m.) The movie about the fickleness of stardom in Hollywood. It's somehow beyond a classic.

Ducks @ Sharks (KDOC, 7:30 p.m.) Didn't these guys just play each other a couple days ago? Are there only 3 or 4 teams in the NHL?
Stars @ Kings (Fox Sports, 8:00 p.m.) Oh hey, wait, here's the Stars from the great hockey state of Texas
"Elf" (CBS, 8:00 p.m.) JIT for Xmas, Will Ferrell's neo-classic
"It's A Wonderful Life" (NBC, 8:00 p.m.) You will feel even more suicical than Jimmy Stewart's character after suffering through an excruciatingly over-commercialized 3-hour presentation of this battered classic.
"Cops" (Fox, 8:00 p.m.) new "Ho! Ho! Ho! Special Edition No. 4" from Las Vegas, this is followed by a re-run of "Special Edition No. 3"
"MAD TV" (Fox, 11:00 p.m.) Jeff Probst in a holiday-themed show complete with "Songs from 'Survivor'"
