The Office
9/8c NBC
The well-spun mock-doc sitcom puts some ho-ho-ho's and yuletide yuks in the Christmas season with a one-hour holiday-themed outing. It'll be gifts galore for Michael when his nemesis, slumping HR vet Toby, takes a leave of absence. Better yet, this opens Dunder Mifflin's doors for one Holly Flax (Amy Ryan), Michael's true romantic flame, who returns to Scranton to cover for Toby. Talk about a Holly jolly Christmas. When a thrilled Michael insists the branch throw a bash for Holly's return, Pam must organize two holiday parties. Meanwhile, Jim comes to regret his decision to engage in a snowball fight with flaky Dwight. — Dean Maurer

The Gruffalo

7/6c ABC Family
This animated adventure is an adaptation of Julia Donaldson's popular children's book of the same name, written in 1999. Mother Squirrel (voice of Helena Bonham Carter) narrates the tale of a mouse who treks through the woods and runs into many scary predators, including a snake, a fox (voice of Tom Wilkinson) and an owl (voice of John Hurt). The mouse manages to outwit these other animals by telling them about a monstrous thing known as a Gruffalo (voice of Robbie Coltrane). — Jennifer Sankowski

The Santa Incident
8/7c Hallmark
Hallmark's latest holiday film has a thoroughly modern spin as it opens with Santa's sleigh being shot down by Homeland Security, which classifies his sleigh as an unidentified aircraft. Ione Skye plays a nurse who helps St. Nick recover from the fall, and her kids assist the jolly man with setting up a makeshift workshop to finish the important business of creating toys. Greg Germann and Sean McConaghy also star as bumbling FBI agents on a mission to track Santa down. — Brie Hearn
