Dr. Evil’s favorite movie, Jerry Maguire (7 p.m., Fox), has its network premiere. Mini-Me, you complete me. Britney Spears, Enrique Iglesias, ‘N Sync and Matt Lauer are on hand for the annual tree lighting festivities in Christmas in Rockefeller Center (8 p.m., NBC). Jason Alexander executive produced and hosts Ultimate Trek: Star Trek’s Greatest Moments (8 p.m., UPN), an hour of favorite scenes from 33 years of “Star Trek,” plus a tribute to DeForest Kelley. The 1964 classic Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (8 p.m., CBS) emerges from storage for its annual airing. Burl Ives, “A Holly Jolly Christmas,” Herbie the misfit elf — come on, you know you want to watch. The ubiquitous Garth Brooks joins with Tony Bennett, Natalie Cole and Trisha Yearwood for Garth Brooks and the Magic of Christmas (9 p.m., NBC). I’ll take “Rudolph” any day.
