SANTA’S NOT the only one obsessed with lists. With just weeks left in both the year and the decade, we in the columnizing business are supposed to be working double-quick on the cultural retrospectives. But it’s hard to get nostalgic for 2019 and the 2010s when nobody wants to leave the 1990s.

Fans who haven’t gotten a strong enough Clinton-era vibe from “Garth Brooks: The Road I’m On” (9 p.m., A&E, TV-14) might enjoy the musical special “Brad Paisley Thinks He’s Special” (8 p.m., ABC, TV-PG). He’s invited Hootie & the Blowfish to perform!

Other celebrity guests and performers include Kelsea Ballerini, the Jonas Brothers, Chris Harrison, Peyton Manning, Tim McGraw and Carrie Underwood, among others.

• The “CMA Country Christmas” (9 p.m., ABC, TV-PG) follows. Trisha Yearwood hosts this celebration of holiday songs past and present from talents including Kristin Chenoweth, For King & Country, Chris Janson, Tori Kelly, Lady Antebellum, Rascal Flatts, Runaway June, CeCe Winans, Brett Young and Chris Young.

• The 2019 documentary “24/7: Kelly Slater” (9 p.m., HBO, TV-PG) profiles one of the world’s greatest surfers as he prepares for the Billabong Pipe Masters in December in Oahu, Hawaii.

Other sports options abound. TV-themed DVDs available today include the annual baseball keepsake, the two-disk commemorative of the 2019 World Series. A nice stocking stuffer for those dreaming of the return of spring and Major League Baseball.

Available now on video on demand and on DVD Dec.13, the film “Valiant” chronicles the unlikely creation of the Golden Knights, the National Hockey League franchise located in Las Vegas. The film begins all business, with a glance at a billionaire owner with a dream and the creation of an expensive sports franchise.

Things only get interesting as we see how the non-tourist residents of the city embrace the team as their own and how the Knights and their unlikely success offered the city a welcome distraction and unifying uplift after the horrific mass shooting of Oct. 1, 2017. The film is dedicated to the victims’ memory. For more information on the documentary, follow @GravitasVOD on Twitter and @gravitasventures on Instagram.
