Christmas-Theme Programs Aplenty on TV Wednesday is also a big day for jolly old specials on Channels 5 and 7, starting at 8 p.m. with "The John Davidson Christmas Show," a family-oriented program that features the Lennon Sisters and many-Davidson family members. Following some outdoor festivities, a few carols and a Christmas meal, the family then proceeds to the barn to celebrate a Davidson tradition. John's father, the Rev. James Davidson, reads the nativity story as the children act out the parts. Turn to CHRISTMAS, TV2 in attendance. On this occasion there will be two the reigning Miss America. Dorothy Benham, and the queen of the 1977 Tournament of Roses, Diane RamaKer, with her court. Immediately following Hope on the same channels will be "Perry Como's Christmas in Austria." Sid Caesar, Senta Berger and the Vienna Boys Choir will be on hand to add a splash of color to the proceedings. Adding a touch of snow to the program is Karl Schranz, who has won the world skiing championship five times. A touch of authentic Austria will come with the playing of alpenhorns, two 13-foot horns fashioned after original plans dating from the 16th century.

Those anxious to get a little jump on the good cheer may enjoy taking it in the company of an old, famous favorite Bob Hope for instance. Hope will be leading off the week's action Monday at 8:30 on Channels 5 and 7. Helping him will be John Wayne. Neil Sedaka and Lola Falana. Naturally, America s king of comedy has no intention of appearing in court without a queen or two
