Series

Frasier co-hosts Seattle's Christmas parade with his rival, Dr. Mary (Kim Coles), on a rerun of Frasier (9 p.m., NBC). Not quite dead yet, The Geena Davis Show (9:30 p.m., ABC) returns to burn off unaired episodes. P.O.V. (10 p.m., PBS, check local listings) presents "My American Girls: A Dominican Story," a portrait of a Brooklyn family straddling two cultures. The Real World (10 p.m., MTV) begins its 10th season (!) with a new cast moving into a nifty brownstone in New York's Greenwich Village, where they promptly begin annoying each other and us.
