“THE VOICE” (8 p.m. Tuesday, WMAQ-Channel 5): The fifth season of NBC’s popular singing show featuring spinning chairs and People magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive is coming to an end. The champ will be crowned in a two-hour live finale, and for the first time in a long time, Team Blake doesn’t have a horse in the race. Team Adam stands a good chance with two of the three finalists, Tessanne Chin and Will Champlin. But you can bet Christina Aguilera will have something to say about that with her mentee, Jacquie Lee.
“I Love Lucy Christmas Special” (7 p.m. Friday, WBBM-Channel 2): Do you love Lucy? If so, you’ll really love this double dose of Lucille Ball’s comedy classic. CBS is airing two newly colorized episodes of the beloved ’50s series. The seldom-seen “Christmas Episode” finds Lucy, Ricky, Fred and Ethel decorating the tree and pondering how their lives have changed since the birth of Little Ricky. “Lucy’s Italian Movie,” better known as “Grape Stomping,” sends both couples on a misguided adventure to Rome, where Lucy’s got some ‘splainin’ to do.
“The Good Wife” (7:30 p.m. Sunday, WBBM-Channel 2): CBS is running a repeat of October’s aptly titled “Hitting the Fan,” which made it into my upcoming list of 2013’s Top 10 TV moments. If you haven’t seen it, don’t miss it. If you have seen it, you’ll know to watch it again because it’s that good. Will goes bananas after finding out about Alicia’s plan to bolt from Lockhart/Gardner to start her own law firm. It’s game on as the ex-lovers battle for clients and one up one another in this wickedly fun, fast-paced hour.
“The Great Christmas Light Fight” (8 p.m. Monday, WLS-Channel 7): Christmas is a time to be with loved ones, spread good cheer and try to outdo your neighbors with your home’s dazzling holiday decor. ABC’s new reality competition takes families known for their elaborate Christmas light displays and pits them against one another for a $50,000 prize. The last two back-to-back episodes air Monday, when the Kowalczyks from Tinley Park attempt to light up the competition.
