For Della Reese, tonight's Detroit 1-8-7 (10/9c, ABC) is a dual homecoming: The episode marks her return to both series TV and to her native Detroit. The 79-year-old actress, who resides in Los Angeles, hasn't appeared in network prime time since Touched by an Angel left the air in 2003, nor, she admits, has she visited Motown in 20 years.

If you're the type that tries to keep track of those perplexing stop-and-start cable schedules, you'll know December tis NOT the season for summer's sci-fi larks Eureka and Warehouse 13 to be airing new episodes. But Syfy programmers are playing Santa Tuesday night, and their gift is a back-to-back package of holiday-themed special originals of the channel's whimsical hit series. It's a great idea, because these are Syfy's most festive series anyway, so why not bring them back to spread a little cheer.
Kathy Griffin, Bristol Palin
Bristol Palin sounds like she thinks Kathy Griffin should be on the Z-List.
During the VH1 Divas' Salute the Troops special, Griffin cracked that Palin was the only contestant in the history of Dancing with the Stars to gain weight. "She gained like 30 pounds a week. I swear to God, it was fantastic -- she's like the white Precious," Griffin said, provoking jeers from the Marine Corps Air Station crowd.

"The audience's reaction to this 'comedian' spoke volumes, and the decent people I know would probably have booed her, too," Palin said in a statement to Fox News. "I hope ...
The votes are in. Supernatural, The CW's little horror show about two monster-hunting brothers, has won TV Guide Magazine's first-ever Fan Favorite cover contest. Cast members Jim Beaver and Misha Collins aided with Tweets, as did a panoply of websites devoted to the series. When the 5.5 million votes were tallied, an impressive last-minute surge pushed Supernatural over the top. "We promoted, promoted, promoted the contest," says Alice Jester, who runs the site thewinchesterfamilybusiness.com. "We had a link on the site, we had a daily presence on Twitter and Facebook, and when Jim and Misha Tweeted, it energized the fans even more," she reports. "The fans wanted a TV Guide cover so badly. The show gives us so much, and the fact that it's small and underappreciated makes us work hard to get others to know about it, too."
Wendy Williams Show
Don't know what to talk about with the extended family this holiday season? Why not gossip?
"I certainly think some of those hot topics that we talk about [on my show] are great conversation starters," daytime talk show host Wendy Williams tells TVGuide.com. "Talk about Eva and Tony." (Right, because you know Grandma will be all over that!)

With Rachel and Finn in Splitsville, and Will clearly heartbroken about Emma and Carl's quickie wedding, New Directions might need a little Christmas as the show heads into its winter's nap. (Tonight's holiday-themed show is the fall finale.) True, the kids did advance to Regionals last week, along with the Warblers (so we'll still see a lot of Kurt when new episodes resume next year), but the overall vibe could be better. And, of course, there's a Grinch to contend with at McKinley High. You can imagine who she is. — Paul Droesch
