Jingle All the Way—Tuesday, December 6, at 2 p.m. ET/PT on Freeform
Howard Langston (Arnold Schwarzenegger) struggles to keep up with his demanding job while still spending quality time with his wife Liz (Rita Wilson) and son Jamie (Jake Lloyd). To make it up to his family, Howard promises to get Jamie the most popular toy of the season—Turbo-Man—even though it’s Christmas Eve and nearly sold out. As he attempts to track down the toy, he bumps into Myron (Sinbad), another father on the same quest. But with the clock ticking, Howard’s moral code is tested as he starts to learn the real meaning of Christmas.
The $100,000 Pyramid—Tuesday, December 6, at 10 p.m. ET/PT on ABC

But when Kahmunrah (voiced by Joseph Kamal) escapes with plans to unlock the Egyptian underworld, it is up to Nick to save the museum. Also featuring the voices of Jamie Demetriou, Alice Isaaz, Gillian Jacobs, Thomas Lennon, Zachary Levi, Akmal Saleh, Kieran Sequoia, Jack Whitehall, Bowen Yang, and Steve Zahn.
