'THE KENNEDY CENTER HONORS'

SUNDAY

The hills are alive with — what else? — “The Sound of Music” in this much-beloved 1965 classic. With “Do-Re-Mi,” “My Favorite Things” and the title tune among the many memorable songs, just try not singing along. Julie Andrews stars. (ABC, 7 p.m.)

Outdated textbooks, over-crowded classrooms, schoolgirl crushes that descend into twisted obsessions — it's tough out there for today's educators. David Charvet and Megan Park star in the made-for-cable thriller “The Perfect Teacher.” (Lifetime, 9 and 11 p.m.)

MONDAY

You might say the piano was his forte: Glenn Gould, the iconoclastic Canadian-born musician who made his reputation interpreting the keyboard works of Johann Sebastian Bach and other Baroque masters, is profiled on “American Masters.” (KCET, 9 p.m.)

TUESDAY

Macca, Oprah and the Obamas: Music legend Paul McCartney (above) and daytime talk diva Oprah Winfrey are among those feted by their peers, as well as the president and first lady, at “The 33rd Annual Kennedy Center Honors.” (CBS, 9 p.m.)

WEDNESDAY

The weight is over: The docu-series “I Used to Be Fat” gets the skinny on graduating high school seniors attempting to lose some serious poundage before heading off to college. We say “good luck” to them but beware the “freshman fifteen.” (MTV, 10 and 11 p.m.)

THURSDAY

It was a concert. It was a telethon. It was Live Aid. The docudrama “When Harvey Met Bob” recalls the efforts of musician Bob Geldof and promoter Harvey Goldsmith to stage the star-studded, dual-city, trans-Atlantic 1985 event. (BBC America, 6 and 8 p.m.)

Et-ldlkzqnc-dec26 FRIDAY

Should fergalicious be forgot, and never brought to mind? Fergie (left) of Black Eyed Peas fame will once again be mistress of ceremonies for the local segments on “Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve With Ryan Seacrest 2011.” (ABC, 10 and 11:30 p.m.)

SATURDAY

Wither “Blue Steel”? Ben Stiller forgoes Derek Zoolander's signature look for a facial expression that hovers between hangdog and sad-sack in writer-director Noah Baumbach's seriocomic 2010 slacker portrait “Greenberg.” (10 p.m. Cinemax)
