Winter Wipeout
5 p.m., BBC Canada
If you haven’t seen enough Americans and Canadians being humiliated and dirtied up on TV, you’re in luck; this U.K. version of the popular obstacle-course game show sees everyday Brits pummeled beyond recognition while Top Gear’s Richard Hammond provides his unique brand of amusing commentary.

Christmas in Rockefeller Center
8 p.m., NBC
Since 1931, an enormous Christmas tree has been erected in New York City’s Rockefeller Center to celebrate the season, Manhattan-style. This year marks the event’s 80th anniversary, and as ever, musicians and celebrities (including Smash star Megan Hilty) show up to help celebrate the occasion. The Today Show’s Al Roker and Savannah Guthrie co-host this annual holiday tradition.

Survivor: Philippines

Sam and Dean reluctantly agree to accompany Castiel on an investigation to a small town where there have been a series of murders that all curiously resemble cartoon deaths.

Key & Peele (Season Finale)
