What’s new tonight:
Glee (Fox) It’s Christmas at McKinley High—and probably Hanukkah, too (just sayin’). Apparently, Brittany still believes in Santa Claus, which leads to much hilarity and a song or 12 about Ol’ Saint Nick, and zero commentary on the effectiveness of the public school system.
Eureka (SyFy) Special Holiday Episode: Chris Parnell (SNL, 30 Rock) guest-stars as an evil doctor—but not Dr. Spacemen—who tries to steal a volatile experiment during the Global Dynamics Christmas party. Yes, an entire town of scientists and brainiacs are celebrating Christmas, if only for the sake of publicly-schooled civilians.
Warehouse 13 (SyFy) Special Holiday Episode: So what if the latest season of Warehouse 13 left on a contentious cliffhanger wherein Myka quit and walked out on the Warehouse? The gang’s all here tonight and tracking down a “bad Santa.” Continuity be damned!
In Treatment (HBO) Season Finale: About 164 episodes later, the third season of In Treatment finally comes to a close—think anyone’s therapy has paid off yet?

Also new tonight:
No Ordinary Family, Detroit 187 (ABC); Minute to Win It, The Biggest Loser (NBC); Raising Hope, Running Wilde (Fox); One Tree Hill, Life Unexpected (The CW); Strange Days With Bob Saget (A&E); Glory Daze, Conan (TBS)
Preview: Rachel (Lea Michelle) does some Christmas crooning on Glee. Just go with it.
