Between network, cable and streaming, the modern television landscape is a vast one. Here are some of the shows, specials and movies coming to TV this week, Nov. 30 — Dec. 6. Details and times are subject to change.

THE DISNEY HOLIDAY SINGALONG 8 p.m. on ABC. The New Amsterdam Theater on Broadway has been closed since mid-March, when, thanks to the pandemic, the “Aladdin” musical rubbed its last lamp of 2020 and beyond. If all goes according to plan, spotlights at the theater will be cranked back up on Monday and pointed at cast members of “The Lion King,” “Aladdin” and the North American touring companies of “Frozen,” who are slated to perform from the theater as part of this special. The hour also includes performances by a number of celebrity performers, including Andrea Bocelli, BTS, Katy Perry and Leslie Odom Jr. It will be followed at 9 p.m. by CMA COUNTRY CHRISTMAS, a special with acts including Tim McGraw, Lady A, Florida Georgia Line, Little Big Town and Darius Rucker.

SE7EN (1995) 6:04 p.m. on Syfy. David Fincher’s latest movie, “Mank,” hits Netflix this weekend, just over 25 years after Fincher released this grisly mystery thriller. “Se7en” casts Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman as a pair of police detectives hunting down a serial killer. Placing it next to “Mank,” about the screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz finishing “Citizen Kane,” is a study in contrasts — as one of Fincher’s contemporaries, Steven Soderbergh, pointed out in a recent interview with The Times: “To draw a line from ‘Se7en’ and say, the same guy is going to make a two-hour character study of a writer wrestling with the fact that he’s betrayed his talents? That’s two different universes.”

88TH ANNUAL CHRISTMAS IN ROCKEFELLER CENTER 8 p.m. on NBC. Throngs of people usually turn out to see the Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Rockefeller Center. With the ceremony closed to the public, the event promises to be more of a silent night this year, but the live broadcast will go on.

BABY GOD (2020) 9 p.m. on HBO. This documentary from the filmmaker Hannah Olson looks at the case of a Las Vegas fertility doctor who for decades used his own sperm to impregnate patients. Olson investigates the fallout by following a number of people who have learned that the doctor, now deceased, is their father.

THE BLUES BROTHERS (1980) 9:50 p.m. on Showtime. Earlier this month, Showtime debuted “Belushi,” a feature-length documentary that chronicles the life of the comedian John Belushi. The network will air that documentary again on Thursday at 8 p.m., followed by one of Belushi’s biggest movies: “The Blues Brothers.” That musical-comedy stars Belushi and Dan Aykroyd as two criminal-musicians, Jake and Elwood Blues, who careen through a plot that involves a lot of R&B and more than one long car chase. It’s peppered with appearances by famous musicians, including Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Cab Calloway, James Brown and John Lee Hooker.
