Open wide! Several channels are anxious to shovel indispensable moral lessons down your throat this weekend in the form of interchangeable made-for-TV holiday movies. I could take time to describe these to you, or, we can play holiday movie Mad Libs. Ready? Fill in the blanks. A cynical (blank) meets a do-gooding (blank). At first they are adversaries, but romantic sparks begin to fly while the two fight over (blank). They fall in love as the cynic slowly learns the real meaning of Christmas. If you plan to consume any of these movies, make a dentist appointment now, because they are sweeter than corn syrup. Pictured: Candace Cameron Bure as Stephanie.

The Walking Dead Sunday 9 p.m., AMC

It’s also the mid-season finale. After a slow couple of weeks watching the Governor (David Morrissey, pictured) transform himself from a sullen Kris Kristofferson doppelganger to his normal bad self, I’m ready for some action.
