'Tis the season for holiday miracles, so why can't we hope the same for television? Santa, please give Cougar Town a premiere date. Hanukkah Harry, all we ask is that Steve Carell get awards recognition for his Office role. Harvest gods of Kwanzaa, let Castle and Beckett finally get together. And please, Winter Solstice Fairy, stop all the incest on TV!

Up All Night
When you think of Will Arnett, still fondly remembered as the clueless Gob Bluth in Arrested Development, the word "parent" isn't the first word that necessarily jumps out at you.
Good thing parenting isn't exactly the subject of his new comedy Up All Night, where he stars as a new dad. See, despite what the trailers are telling you, it's not so much about the baby, as it is about new parents Regan (Christina Applegate) and Chris' (Arnett) reaction to it — and they don't exactly want to give up their super social lifestyle, or, um, occasional curse words.

If you were worried that Sunday's MTV Video Music Awards were going to be a Jersey Shore-free situation, rest assured that the cast left for Los Angeles on Saturday morning...
They came, they smushed... but did they conquer? While Italy somehow survived its Jersey Shore invasion when the cast of MTV's reality smash relocated to Florence for Season 4, Snooki, The Situation et al. didn't have it so easy. Two months away from the comforts of their home-away-from-home in Seaside Heights left the guidos and guidettes in a serious state of GTL withdrawal. That's right: The eight stars — Deena Cortese, "DJ Pauly D" DelVecchio, Jenni "JWoww" Farley, Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola, Vinny Guadagnino, Ronnie Magro, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino — found their signature gym-tanning-laundry ritual tough to pull off across the Atlantic.
Jersey Shore, Season 4
Gym, tan — lavanderia?
The first trailer for the new season of Jersey Shore has been released and it looks like the cast is up their same antics, Italian-style.
"She wants my saus-eege, I gotta give it to her," Pauly D says.
First Look: Jersey Shore invades Italy
With the addition of some new inter-house hookups (Deena and Pauly get very friendly), expect more of the same fights (does anyone like The Situation?) and more of Snooki getting handcuffed by police. But at least there seems to be one major change, besides the location: The lack of Ronnie-Sam relationship drama.
Jersey Shore's Ronnie Ortiz-Magro has been admitted into a pretrial intervention program that will allow an assault charge stemming from Season 1 to be dismissed, The Associated Press reports.

Sammi 'Sweetheart' Giancola
Jersey Shore's Sammi Giancola is standing by her man, even after their humiliating and violent public breakup, Us Weekly reports
Sammi "Sweetheart" says she's back together with on-and-off boyfriend Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, who was last seen calling her a "spoiled b----," throwing her bed out the window, and stomping on her glasses. She now claims he's just misunderstood.
This week, the Jersey Shore cameras took viewers to place they never should have gone: the examination room in which Ronni had his rectal exam. Meanwhile, the girls hit up the sex shop for some new outfits, Pauly's stalker resurfaced, and Ron and Sammi broke up again. ...
