Christmas Eve and Christmas Day are offering up a few gems this year in terms of marathons or specials. You've got everything from "Doctor Who" to a winter-themed marathon of Syfy monster movies to more Christmas movie marathons than you can shake a stick at. Plus, the Hub is offering four hours of the "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic" yule log on Christmas morning, which we're intrigued by.

'Home Alone,' 'A Christmas Story,' 'Wizard of Oz': Favorite Christmas movies to enjoy this holiday

22 December 2013 10:00 AM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Maybe you've already had your fill of holiday programming, but this is when it gets serious.

With Christmas coming at midweek this year, that still leaves several days for networks to offer signs of the season ... some of which have been shown already this year but still are hugely appropriate for viewing. And maybe even more so, the closer to the actual holiday it gets.

Zap2it has selected a sampling of some of the home-screen gifts being presented in the coming days.

"The Wizard of Oz" (Sunday, Dec. 22, TNT): It had a 3-D and IMAX retrofitting recently, but there's something comforting about going "Over the Rainbow" with the Judy Garland-starring 1939 classic at home.

"Home Alone" (Sunday, AMC): Young Kevin (Macaulay Culkin) makes things tough for thieves (Joe Pesci, Daniel Stern) who invade his house in this 1990 family favorite.

"The Santa Clause" (Sunday, ABC Family): Tim Allen »

Ellen DeGeneres, ‘Sesame Street’ Lead Daytime Emmy Wins

15 June 2013 1:03 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and “Sesame Street” landed a half-dozen wins apiece on Friday night as the Daytime Emmy Creative Arts Awards were handed out in Los Angeles.

DeGeneres’ syndie yakker, a perennial Daytime Emmy darling, won a craft and technical awards as well as a nod for directing a talkshow or morning program, in a tie with NBC’s “Today.”

Sesame Street” took the statuette for preschool program as well as writing and directing for a children’s program. Kevin Clash, the puppeteer who left the show last November after more than 20 years as the beloved Elmo character amid revelations about his sexual relations, won for performer in a children’s program. He also shared in the directing award for “Sesame Street” with three others: Ken Diego, Joey Mazzarino and Matt Vogel.

Cabler the Hub prevailed in the children’s program category with its “R.L. Stine’s The Haunting Hour” series. »
