TV program: What to watch the week of December 27, 2020


This weekly feature is in addition to TVLine’s daily lists of what to watch and the monthly guide to what is streaming.

With more than 530 scripted shows now broadcast by broadcast, cable and streaming, it’s easy to forget that a favorite comedy is back or that the new “glamor drama” you had planned is about to debut. So take this as our reminder to tune up your DVR, order a Season Pass, put a fresh Memorex into the VCR… whatever you do.

This week you will find the last half-seasons of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and Vikings (now on Amazon Prime!), the premiere of The masked dancer, the return of Course de dragsters de RuPaul and a new season of Cobra Kai. You also have an appointment on New Years Day with Docteur Who, the season finale of Its dark materials and a myriad of countdowns to 2021.
