What’s On TV? – Wednesday (12/25/19) – Merry Christmas!

Animal Planet's Series "The Zoo"

The stockings have been stuffed, Santa left presents, carols have been sung. Christmas is officially here. Whether you’re enjoying a low-key day or with lots of family, there are plenty of films and unique shows airing tonight to relax by the fire. Try something new with the Animal Planet series “The Zoo.” Shot over an eight-month period, viewers get an inside look into the Bronx Zoo. While TV episodes are scarce tonight, there is no shortage of movies.

Pick of the Day

“iHeart Radio Jingle Ball” (CW) at 8:00 p.m. ET

Lizzo performing at the “2019 iHeart Radio Jingle Ball”

Each year, iHeart Radio puts together a jolly “Jingle Ball” where celebrities perform Christmas music to kick off Christmas week. Originally aired on Dec. 19, this jam-packed hour airs again tonight with guests such as the Jonas Brothers, Taylor Swift, Billie Eilish, Camille Cabello, Katy Perry, and Lizzo. Stars performed their new Christmas music with the Jonas Brothers performing their new Christmas single “Like It’s Christmas,” Taylor Swift performing “Christmas Tree Farm” and Katy Perry performing “Cozy Little Christmas.” Other guests include Halsey, BTS, and Lewis Capaldi. No matter what music you like, this special certainly has something for you.

Movies on TV

“Die Hard” (Paramount) at 11:00 p.m. ET

Bruce Willis in “Die Hard”

The movie that started a million-dollar franchise, “Die Hard” is an action-packed Christmas movie to watch when one needs a break from all the Christmas love story films. Bruce Willis stars as an NYPD officer who attempts to save his family and others when German terrorists take hostages during a Christmas party. While the film came out in July of 1988, this film is a widely accepted Christmas classic. “Die Hard” is a true gem as not many Christmas movies can call themselves action films.
