The Sound of Music Sunday, 7 p.m., ABC
Oh, it is so on Carrie Underwood. Julie “I haven’t bothered to watch ‘The Sound of Music Live!’ yet” Andrews is about to school you on her favorite things, such as good acting and Länder dancing. It’s serious combat as ABC sticks it to NBC by showing the full version of the 1965 classic. This is just the spoonful of sugar (sorry, wrong Andrews movie) that will put you in a holiday mood.
I Am Britney Jean Sunday, 9 p.m., E!
Britney Spears goes into rehearsals for her Las Vegas residency at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, and the cameras are there for all the manufactured drama and Starbucks lattes. Listen Brit-Brit, I’d better not hear a single complaint out of you during this behind-the-scenes movie. Performers nearly twice your age — Cher, Bette Midler, Elton John, Barry Manilow — have been doing these Vegas gigs for years and avoided meltdowns and drama. Well, probably not Elton John, but the rest of them.
I Want a Dog for Christmas Charlie Brown Saturday, 8 p.m., ABC

Being an orphan never looked so fun (sorry Annie).
