Thursday Jan. 5
Winter Wipeout, 8 p.m., ABC
It’s the most wonderful time of the year, when our favorite seasonal obstacle course show returns! Of course, it is the only seasonal obstacle course show, but why quibble? So fun! Tonight, “Contestants face obstacles that include Snow Shovel Trouble, Pain in the Ice and Candy Pain Lane.”
Lake Placid 3, 9 p.m., SyFy
How could I not know that there was a Lake Placid 3?
Project Runway All-Stars, 9 p.m., Lifetime
Our excitement at the return of Austin Scarlet, Rami, Sweet P, Michael Costello, Mondo et al is somewhat tempered by the idea that there is a world without Tum Gunn here. And no Heidi or Michael or Nina, either. So … hmmm. Instead, we have supermodel Angela Lindvall as host, the mentor is Marie Claire Editor-in-Chief Joanna Coles and the judges are Georgina Chapman (a.k.a. Mrs. Harvey Weinstein) and Isaac Mizrahi. So, um, yeah. Not sure about this.
