American Music Awards
ABC, Sunday, 8 ET/PT
Sunday's big musical event is the American Music Awards, one of those TV-created awards shows that polls people to discover their favorites (something you'd think you could discover by record sales and downloads.) At any rate, you watch the AMAs less for the winners than the performers, slated to include Justin Bieber, Kelly Clarkson, Carly Rae Jepsen, Psy, Ludacris, Carrie Underwood, Christina Aguilera, Kesha, Nicki Minaj, No Doubt, Pink and Taylor Swift.
It's Christmas, Carol!
Hallmark, Sunday, 8 ET/PT
Tisn't the season, but that's not going to stop TV from rushing in with Christmas movies, with four this weekend alone. And we all know that nothing short of legal intervention is ever going to stop moviemakers from reworking Dickens' A Christmas Carol — which for this film means turning Scrooge into a hard-hearted female book publisher (Emmanuelle Vaugier) facing a ghostly visit from the publishing house's beloved late founder. On the plus side, the ghost is played by Carrie Fisher. And the minus? It's not even Thanksgiving, people! One holiday at a time.
Lifetime, Sunday, 9 ET/PT
And speaking of movies that are pushing the season, we get Spin, with Ralph Macchio as a former dance champion helping his estranged son prepare for a Christmas Eve ballroom dance contest. Make it a Thanksgiving Eve contest, and I'm there. Otherwise, you're on your own.
