Survivor hands off another million dollars to some Machiavellian manipulator

Here’s what’s up in the world of television for Wednesday, December 20. All times are Eastern.

Top pick

Survivor (CBS, 8 p.m.): The finale to season 35 (Jesus Christ, really? 35?) arrives with this two-hour installment, in which we can only assume another duplicitous bastard will take the crown and million-dollar prize. Ben is the best guess, but don’t count out Devon; either way, Carrie Raisler will have some thoughts on the conclusion to another round of idols and inexplicable coalitions.


Regular coverage

The Crown (Netflix)
Vikings (History, 9 p.m.)
Happy! (Syfy, 10 p.m.)

Wild card

The Top 12 Greatest Christmas Movies Of All Time (The CW, 8 p.m.): You know this one-hour special will definitely end all the online debate about whether Die Hard truly is the best Christmas movie, because Dean Cain is hosting, which means this is as official as it gets. Also, It’s A Wonderful Life is the actual best Christmas movie.
