‘Happy New Year, Charlie Brown’
MOVIE. Old Blockhead and the gang ring in the new year in this 1986 special. Of course, Charlie’s new year can’t be entirely happy — he’s been assigned a book report on Leo Tolstoy’s “War and Peace” over the holiday break and it’s messing with his plans. We’re sure Lucy will help him out… for five cents.

REALITY. In a two-episode season premiere, the team is tasked with creating an 800-pound alligator-shaped cake. Elsewhere, they bake a cake for Willie Nelson’s 80th birthday. Will it be a “special” cake? Either way, they should probably bake one extra, to account for the munchies.
Season Premiere, 9 p.m., TLC
SPECIAL. This is a repeat of a chilling profile of the infamous and terrifying mass murderer who has no blood on his own hands. Hey, you need something to cut all the sweetness and light of the holiday season, right?
