CHRISTMAS TV: What's On Now
November 28, 2011  | By Diane Werts
 
scrooged-bill-murray-movie.jpg
Christmas listings have now been extended through Wednesday, Nov. 30!

By the start of December, we should have all the listings posted for the rest of the holiday season, in a more usable format, with fun seasonal photos.

Bear with us -- this project is a monster!

But a good monster. You know, like the Abominable Snow Monster on Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. (Catch its annual airing Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.)

[PREVIOUS POST of Nov. 22]

hot-in-cleveland-hohoho.jpg

Still compiling Christmas TV listings running through the first of the year -- but here's a taste of what's to come.

Miracle on 34th Street! Mythbusters! 30 Rock! Fat Albert! Mister Magoo!

These should get you through the Thanksgiving weekend, and we'll have hundreds more by then, including such classics as Rudolph, Charlie Brown and A Christmas Story.

(And that photo above, with the Hot in Cleveland cast? We dunno. TV Land sent it, so we're running it.)
