The Bridge: Countdown to Christmas on Hallmark at 8:00pm ET. Original telefilm. I assume this is a TV movie conclusion to the series The Bridge where there’s a anonymous threat of a major attach on the US-Mexico border set to take place at Christmas. Sonya Cross and Marco Ruiz must work together through the month of December to figure out the identity of the Advent Bomber and take him down before he kills hundreds. It’s definitely an unusual direction for the Hallmark channel, but I guess someone saw that there’s been several cable channels that have benefited from going a bit darker than usual.
Once Upon a Time on ABC at 8:00pm ET. Fifth season fall finale.

Last Chance Christmas on Lifetime at 9:00pm ET. Original telefilm. Oh, this one is obviously about a old professional poker player who just found out that the daughter he never knew he had has been living in poverty and needs a kidney transplant. He finds out he’s a match and while he knows that his previous lifestyle means he’s unlikely to get through the surgery, he decides to donate a kidney to her anyway. But not before one last big score, on Christmas Eve.
