The holidays are here, and while some would argue that this time should be spent with your family and friends, we think you should grab some coco and use this much-needed break to catch up all of the best TV shows that you keep putting off.
While the usual batch of television shows are currently hibernating in their winter hiatus, you should take advantage of the small screen slumber to get caught up on all the series that are worth watching (or even re-watching) before the new year approaches.
We at ETonline have created your ultimate guide to help you figure out which shows you need to catch up on or binge before Christmas break is over. So put on those sweatpants and blow off those family obligations because your schedule is now jam-packed with these can't miss shows…

Welcome to the third installment of our Ask Alan video series, and what should be the last one of 2014. Also, because of my upcoming travels to La for press tour, followed by most of Team HitFix going to Sundance, there may be a brief hiatus before we get to episode 4. But at least I remembered to wear a different t-shirt this time, even if it's also a red one. On this week's show, I was able to squeeze in three questions, touching on the phenomenon of hate-watching, whether "Gilmore Girls" was ever a contender to be in "The Revolution Was Televised," and what shows I might suggest would make a good holiday binge. As usual, you can send questions to firstname.lastname@example.org, and please put "Ask Alan" in the subject line.

Now that the wildly popular podcast Serial has come to a close, we're ready to watch the murder mystery unfold on the big screen -- and we know just who would play Jay, Sarah Koenig, Adnan Syed, Hae Min Lee and of course, Mr. S.
Photos: The 10 Biggest Breakout Stars of 2014
If you're unfamiliar with the true crime podcast that draws over 1 million listeners per week and is put on by the This American Life producers, Serial reexamines the 1999 murder of an 18-year-old Baltimore high school senior named Hae Min Lee.
Not long before Lee went missing, she had broken up with her boyfriend, then-17-year-old Adnan Syed, an honors student of the Muslim faith who was later tried and convicted for killing her. Adnan is now 33 and serving a life sentence for Hae's murder, but insists in a series of telephone interviews with producer Sarah Koenig that he's innocent.
Charlie Sheen is getting in trouble with the law again.
The former Two and a Half Men star will pay homage to his Ferris Bueller’s Day Off character during The Goldbergs‘ upcoming tribute episode to the 1986 film, People reports.
On the ABC comedy, it will be Barry’s sis, Erica, who runs into Sheen’s character after ratting out her brother for faking being sick in an attempt to create his own Bueller-esque day off. »
2014's fall TV line-up delivered some seriously stunning performances, not to mention a few truly incredible new shows -- but the only problem? There was such an abundance of critically acclaimed television that our DVRs could barely keep up. If you missed out on more quality viewing than is healthy, don't sweat it. Moviefone's rounded up a list of hits that you may have missed in 2014 (too busy binging "Gilmore Girls" on Netflix, probably), which means you officially have a plan for winter break!
If the multiple Golden Globe nominations aren't enough to inspire you to watch "The Affair," you might be interested to know that it stars none other than Joshua Jackson, aka Pacey from "Dawson's Creek." "The Affair" -- which follows the romantic dalliances of a married man and woman in Montauk -- is one part mysterious and one million parts evocative, but the show is »

With its Season 4A finale, ABC’s Once Upon a Time sent the Frozen folks back to Arendelle while welcoming to the canvas three famously wicked women: Maleficent (played again by True Blood’s Kristin Bauer), sea witch Ursula (Alias‘ Merrin Dungey) and Cruella de Vil (Dracula’s Victoria Smurfit). The winter finale also found the beast’s beauty playing hero, while Regina lost a lover but gained a helper for Operation Mongoose.
TVLine invited series creators Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis to talk about the show’s magical take on Cruella, Rumple’s “collision course” with Regina, dismiss one »
The Emmy-winning and Oscar-nominated actress will guest star on an upcoming episode of ABC’s Thursday night hit How to Get Away With Murder, TVLine has learned.
As of now, Tyson is only booked for one episode — and the network remained tight-lipped regarding details about her character. (Could she be the mother of Viola Davis’ hard-charging defense attorney Annalise Keating? We can but hope!)
Tyson’s casting is yet another high-caliber get for the freshman drama. Last month, TVLine reported that »
Galavant, are you ready to rock?!
Bach’s song will be heard in Episode 2, which airs in the second half-hour of the series’ premiere on Jan. 4 at 8/7c. The tune, featuring Bach’s vocals, will play during a sequence in which Galavant (played by Rogue‘s Joshua Sasse) trains to joust Sir Jean Hamm (guest star John Stamos, Full House).

Now that we’re heading into mid-December, practically every single current show is off the air as of this week, with a few last stragglers airing their winter/fall finales in the next few days. As such, there’s going to be a distinct lack of things to watch, meaning that the holiday break is a perfect time for TV watchers to catch up on shows they’ve missed. Netflix is the obvious choice, as it has about ten zillion different shows you can binge-watch, but recently I’ve found myself getting into a show that I would have normally never viewed as “my thing.” As you may have guessed from the title, that show is Gilmore Girls. I can’t say I sat through all seven seasons like my wife, who was the primary binge-watcher in this situation, but I’ve caught about the last three of them, and I was surprised to really, »
Guardians of the Galaxy Blu-Ray Review
Guardians of the Galaxy hit theaters with surprising force, based on the fact that it is a comic-book film based on characters virtually no one knows, and the Blu-Ray is here to repeat the frenzy. Part space opera, part comic adventure, the film is an unusual hybrid of elements, made all the more interesting by way of characters who aren’t going to be explained, and are themselves rather fantastic.
Catch our podcast review of Guardians of the Galaxy here.
The film introduces us, in rather spectacular fashion, to Peter Quill (Chris Pratt), who fancies himself Star Lord, galactic superthief, or something. Having been abducted from Earth as a child, though again, this is a film with little interest in backstory, Peter was raised by the criminals who captured him, and he now finds himself outfitted with some really snazzy tech.
This time, rummaging through a forgotten world, »

A few thoughts on last night's "Jane the Virgin" — and what a pleasant surprise the show has been so far this season — coming up just as soon as I go sit in a sweat lodge, drinking tea, throwing up and being guided by my shaman... In the crush of fall premieres, "Jane" was a show I never got around to reviewing. As discussed with Fienberg on a fall podcast, I felt it was a very well-made example of a show that was Not For Me, and that even though I could appreciate how terrific Gina Rodriguez was in such a tricky role, I didn't expect to be watching for more than an additional episode or two. Whoops. Like some of the best shows of the CW's precursor channel, the WB (particularly "Gilmore Girls"), "Jane" has turned out to be executed so well in so many different ways that I'm getting »

Mindy Kaling's doing the Time Warp—and it's taking her back to Stars Hollow! The Mindy Project creator and star, 35, loves to share behind-the-scenes sneak peeks at upcoming episodes. And on Monday, Dec. 8, she Instagrammed snaps from a future episode involving a flashback to 2004. Cue the "Where You Lead," because Kaling only had one beauty inspiration in mind: the cerulean-eyed Alexis Bledel, back when she was starring on the hit series Gilmore Girls. "In 2004 Mindy Lahiri wore color contacts. She asked for 'Alexis Bledel blue,'" the [...] »
See if you can figure out what these 10 performers have in common: Judd Apatow, Will Arnett, Wayne Brady, Drew Carey, Jim Gaffigan, Billy Gardell, Sean Hayes, Thomas Lennon, John Mayer, and Kunal Nayyar.
Well, for one thing, they were all recently announced as guest hosts on CBS' "The Late Late Show" for the three-month interval between the end of Craig Ferguson's tenure (on Dec. 19) and the beginning of James Corden's.
And, for another thing, they're all guys.
There have been a lot of complaints, especially in the last year, that late-night TV is a sausage fest, but it's become especially apparent once again in the last few days. Really, CBS couldn't find one funny woman to sit at the "Late Late Show" desk, even for just a week?

It’s official. Thanksgiving has come and gone and it’s freezing outside — well, here in L.A. it’s still in the 60’s most of the time, but it’s been raining a little lately and that’s the same thing as being snowed in, right? Being so cold you might turn into a personsicle isn’t all bad.
Just stay inside and enjoy these 13 perks:
1. You Finally Get to Wear the “Ugly Sweater” You Actually Think Is Cool But Can’t Get Away Wearing Anytime Else. Because apparently if it has a giant, yarn Santa crocheted to the front, you can’t proudly wear it in public.
News: New 'Frozen' will be in theaters next year — get the scoop!
2. And Because You’re Wearing That Sweater All the Time, You Don’t Have to Worry About What’s Underneath. Goodbye bikini season, hello sweater weather, where bodies remain a mystery under that groundhog »
With the recent news that Friends is coming to Netflix and our excitement over the service's recent addition to Gilmore Girls, we started thinking about all the beloved past series you can watch on Netflix. Whether you've been meaning to get around to watching (or rewatching) Breaking Bad, Friday Night Lights, or Arrested Development, we've rounded up the excellent old series that you can stream in their entirety. Say goodbye to your weekend plans and hello to your remote. »
I have a confession to make: My little scoop empire was not built by me alone. I’ve had help along the way. Shocking, I know. But a key driving force behind the “Ausiello brand” has been someone who has largely remained behind the scenes. His name is Kit Cowan, and he’s one of the most talented designers/photographers/purveyors of good taste on the planet. He’s also, as luck would have it, my husband.
Chances are, if you have ever found yourself going “Wow, that looks cool” about anything I have produced over the past 13 years, Kit had a hand in it. »
Lauren hits late night! Well, sort of… Lauren Graham is hard at work shoring up her post-Parenthood plans. After announcing a role on Matthew Perry’s upcoming remake of The Odd Couple and her plans to turn her debut novel, Someday, Someday Maybe, into a pilot possibly named Unfamous, the Gilmore Girls alum, 47, has even more on her plate with a new NBC development deal. Her potential upcoming half-hour comedy, Kate on Later, has been given the green light and will star Graham as Kate, a woman breaking [...] »
Lauren Graham has landed herself a sweet gig thanks to NBC. The soon to be former Parenthood star will write and lead on a late night show inspired comedy, Kate the Later. The show is in the commitment stage where NBC has promised to pick it up if they like it. Lauren is not the only star from the series to land a new series on NBC, though. She is the second star off of the series. If NBC does pick it up, it will premier likely in 2015.
Congratulations to Lauren. We have always loved her acting and cannot wait to see what she does next with her show. She has proven herself to be gifted for different types of roles. I am sure she will do well in a more comedy based show as it will allow her to shine with her humor. Fans of Gilmore Girls have experienced »

The Gilmore Girls alum will headline and co-write Kate on Later, a comedy in development at NBC, our sister site Deadline reports.
The single-camera project, which has a script commitment at the network, follows Graham’s Kate as she is afforded the opportunity of becoming one of the only women in late-night television.

Recorded on a cold Thanksgiving evening, Randy and Sean sit down for a special, Turkey Day-themed episode of the podcast, centered around a discussion of John Hughes’s 1987 classic (well, borderline classic) Planes, Trains, and Automobiles. But that’s not all that’s on their plate (pardon the terrible pun): they also talk all sorts of Thanksgiving-themed television, from Bob’s Burgers and New Girl, to Friends, Cheers, Gilmore Girls - and of course, the masterpiece known as The O.C. Finally, the guys get a little deep and talk about what Thanksgiving means to them – in short, a perfect podcast to listen to while recovering from the holiday and the nonsense of Black Friday ’round the fire.
