Next Week in TV 11/27: The Holiday Theme Continues, Plus Willow Debuts!

By Scott C & DRWHO42 

As we get closer to Christmas, expect the bombardment of the holiday season to kick into overdrive. Of course, not everything is joining the Christmas parade. 

For those enjoying the holiday season so far, how about seeing The Wonderful World of Disney: Magical Holiday Celebration special on ABC (8 p.m. ET) on Sunday? Of course, The Great Christmas Light Fight is on the same network, but on Monday night (8 p.m. ET). For more Christmas-themed programming, we recommend checking the week’s listing below to please that holiday hunger of yours. 

For regular programming, the 14th fall finale of NCIS: Los Angeles airs on Sunday at 10 p.m. ET. Fox’s 9-1-1 airs its 6th fall finale on Monday at 8 p.m. ET, while ABC’s The Rookie: Feds airs its 1st fall finale on Tuesday at 10 p.m. ET.

On Wednesday, Willow premieres on Disney Plus for all to see. It is a sequel to the 1988 film of the same name and takes place 20 years later. Of course, it stars Warwick Davis returning as Willow with a new cast. From what the blog has seen, this series looks delightful for the family to see together. 

HBO Max’s Titans series has its 4th winter finale airing on Thursday. Don’t be a wimp and watch Diary of A Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules on Disney Plus on Friday. 

Overall, the week’s listing will have more non-holiday treats listed. 

That’s a wrap for this week! Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
