'Tis the season for holiday miracles, so why can't we hope the same for television? Santa, please give us more (yes, more) Will Schuester's rapping on Glee. Hanukkah Harry, all we ask is that Lux stop kissing her teacher long enough for the CW to see that Life Unexpected deserves a third season. Harvest gods of Kwanzaa, let Fringe survive its move to Fridays. And please, Winter Solstice Fairy, is it too much to ask that to see Meredith Grey in a wedding gown before we depart this mortal coil?
-more people were watching Breaking Bad because it is, for my money, the best show on TV.
-Community's Troy could have a conversation with Glee's Brittany. Just imagine that battle of adorably dim one-liners!
-Mr. Schuester would rap more on Glee in the new year. There hasn't been nearly enough!
-Off the Map will be a great vehicle to show off the awesome actor that is Zach Gilford. It's hard to imagine anything as moving and closely observed as his Matt Saracen on Friday Night Lights, but I'm willing to watch this medical drama set in the jungle just to find out.
-we could get more news from cable news networks.
-for Boardwalk Empire to avoid a sophomore slump in its second season.
-that South Park will keep its edge and keep skewering the people (Tiger Woods), things (Shake Weights) and TV shows (Hoarders and any program with the word Jersey in its title) that need to be skewered.
-that Life Unexpected would be done with the awful student-teacher story line and get picked up for a new season.
-Justin Timberlake would become a Saturday Night Live regular.
-Julia Stiles would return to Dexter and accept him for who he is. Sociopaths need love too.
-that Fringe will defy the odds and do well on Fridays.
-Breaking Bad would come back before July.
-that FX will renew The League. We have now agreed to join a fantasy football league and we're going to need all the help we can get.
-for Will Arnett to make a speedy return to the small screen.
-that Clark Kent would put on the infamous super suit before the series finale of Smallville.
-Meredith and Derek would actually get married. (Post-Its? Come on!)
-a network would be created for the express purpose of giving another shot to such gone-too-soon shows as Life Unexpected, FlashForward, Eli Stone, Better Off Ted, Arrested Development, Wonderfalls, Firefly, Eastwick, Journeyman, October Road, Party Down, Pushing Daisies, Samantha Who? and Studio 60.
-that Lucas and Peyton would return to One Tree Hill for Brooke and Julian's wedding. She's her best friend and he's her ex, so how could they miss it?
-Damon would tell Elena that he loves her without compelling her afterward to forget. She needs to know how he feels and to reciprocate with a steamy makeout sesh.
Those are our holiday wishes for TV. What are yours?
