Some of us (OK, at least one of us) might have stopped watching the Sundance Channel's quirky documentary series, "Nimrod Nation," when the pig got shot at the end of Episode 1.

But if you can't get enough of that, or of sleepy, snowy, basketball-obsessed Watersmeet, Mich., then you won't want to miss Sundance's eight-episode "Nimrod" marathon, which begins at 3 p.m. Dec. 22.

And for those watching regularly, Episodes 7 and 8 debut at 9 and 9:30 p.m. Monday.

'Idol' giving back again

Fox will reprise its "American Idol" fund-raiser, "Idol Gives Back," on April 9.

Last spring's concert raised some $75 million for charities in the United States and Africa, according to the network, which might want to consider ditching the excruciating Simon Cowell/Ryan Seacrest photo ops with African children this time around.

More giving back

Taking a page from his boss, Oprah, who likes to spread the wealth, "Dr. Phil" (5 p.m., Channel 3) today marks his sixth holiday special with a big giveaway for families who lost their homes in the southern California fires.

Not coming back

NBC's "Journeyman" has been canceled, though its remaining two episodes will air, according to the Hollywood Reporter. *
