Ho ho ho! Behold Our List of December TV Treats

community christmas episode If you wanted to give your DVR a break during the holiday season, it'll have to wait.

The first few weeks of December are jam-packed with finales, specials and mid-season cliffhangers, and there's even a bow-tie clad treat on Christmas Day. In an effort to help you keep track of what's to come and shine a light on some hidden gems, I've come up with a list of notable December TV events.

So grab your eggnog and peruse the following roster, which features appearances from Dominic West, James McAvoy, Emily Watson, Dustin Hoffman, Anna Friel, Pierce Brosnan as well as the 'Sons of Anarchy' crew, the former Saul Tigh and the 'Revenge' divas. It's quite an array of stocking stuffers, no?

Keep in mind that this is not an exhaustive list of every finale or special that airs in December. This is just a Mo-curated roster of highlights that I have either seen and liked or will be watching between (or during) present-wrapping sessions.

And if you know of any other notable December finales or TV movies, feel free to share the details in comments!

What happened to UNDERCOVER BOSS? Was one of our favorite shows. With no warning it totally disappeared.
Thank you...

Out of all the shows you listed, I didn't see any that I have even a bit of interest to watch. In fact, haven't heard of half of them. Think I'll pull out my CD's and watch Muppets Christmas Carol and Rudolph again instead.

AOL is 100% CRAP! As you go through the list of show's pictured, the first one - "The Take" - has a description. Everything else is blank. Sure you can see the other picture's, but no description. AOL MUST be bough out by somebody that has an idea as to how to do thing's correct!
