Are you one of those people who gets tired of schmaltzy, made-for-TV Christmas movies that seem to dominate the airwaves at this time of year?
Once again, reality TV has come to the rescue, offering us marathons, specials and even new episodes of some of our favorite shows.
You might think you'd be safe putting on Bravo and throwing away the remote until the presents have been returned to stores on December 26th--but you'd end up regretting it.
While the channel is playing some great Real Housewives marathons (and Shahs of Sunset & Top Chef: Seattle episodes), if you watch all weekend you'll soon find them repeating some of the episodes over and over and over in a crazy-making infinite loop.
But don't worry, when Bravo lets you down there's plenty of other shows to captivate your attention. For example, you could check out Duck Dynasty or watch past episodes of Storage Wars and look for evidence of the alleged plastic surgery (oh yeah, or the supposed fraud).
Check out this hour-by-hour listing so you can plan ahead and schedule your viewing accordingly.
Looking for the much-hyped Honey Boo Boo "Holladay" Specials? TLC won't be airing them until after the new year.
Coming soon: your guide to what to watch over the New Years weekend.
