Okay, so the pickings are getting slim for our TV viewing as we approach the holidays. Sure, mainstays such as Grey’s Anatomy, The Office and 30 Rock are in repeat mode till next year—but that’s why the lord gave us reality TV!

First of all, must-see TV on Thursday nights has a whole new meaning now that Jersey Shore is on MTV. Tonight’s trash-tastic episode features a bar room brawl while Pauly and Mike try hard to juggle lots and lots of ladies.

Then there’s The Real Housewives of Orange County and things are about to heat up. Vicki invited the ladies—sans their hubbies—to Florida last week. Tonight, no one is happy when the men crash the trip. And when Alexis shows up a day late, new divisions (AKA cat fights) start to form. We love the drama so bring it on!

And Saturday Night Live gets into the holiday spirit with Saturday Night Live Presents: A Very Gilly Christmas. Enjoy SNL sketches from holiday shows of the past and brand new sketches from the popular Kristin Wiig character—the mischievous Gilly.
