Here’s what’s happening in the world of television for Tuesday, December 5. All times are Eastern.
Will & Grace (NBC, 9 p.m.): The Will & Grace revival has been disappointing, to put it charitably. So it’s with the holiday spirit in our hearts that we hope the show gets its act together for “A Gay Olde Christmas,” which transports the characters back in time and may be the shake-up the show so badly needs. Black-and-white film lover Gwen Ihnat will be on hand to review, so let’s raise a glass of holiday cheer to her having a gay olde time.
Chopped, “Chopped Grand Holiday” (Food Network, 10 p.m.): Four champions enter. Only one leaves. This special episode of Chopped pits four undefeated Chopped winners against each other, playing for charity. The holiday episode will feature “a clever take on hardboiled eggs and a deckle of beef” in the entrée round, which is just vague enough to sound worrisome.
