Our Holiday Gift Guide: Presents for Every TV Fan On Your List

by Maggie Furlong, posted Dec 1st 2011 11:00AM
I'm hard to shop for -- I fully admit that -- but the one way to my heart is with anything TV-related. Now that it's officially December, it's time to start putting up holiday decorations and brainstorming the perfect presents for everyone on your list ... even the picky people.

I've pulled together the best of the best holiday presents inspired by TV, including full series box sets of fan-favorite shows, a paperweight worthy of geek must-have status, a few books (yes, books) written by TV funny ladies and more gotta-have gear from the hottest comedies and dramas. There's something for all ages, all price ranges and all TV lovers.

So put your kids down for a nap in their leather jackets (you'll see), curl up with Big Joe (you'll love) and settle in for this epic list of TV-themed gifting goodness. Happy shopping!

Christmas Gifts For 6 TV Characters

by Bob Sassone, posted Dec 8th 2010 4:00PM
The MentalistIt's Christmas, that time of year when we're constantly told that it's better to give than to receive. Some people probably don't really believe that, but it is nice to go out and buy a present for a loved one, with no expectation that you're going to get something from them.

Look at it this way: if you buy someone else a gift, you'll probably get one too!

And since we consider TV characters almost like a part of our family here, we decided to find the perfect gifts to suit their personalities. Because even fictional people want to receive nice gifts this time of year.

Oprah's Favorite Things: The Full List of Things She Didn't Give You

by Bob Sassone, posted Nov 23rd 2010 10:30AM
OprahRemember back in 2009 when Oprah Winfrey didn't have her usual 'Favorite Things' episode? Because of the bad economy at the time, Oprah decided that it would have been a little over-the-top to give away expensive gifts.

(Though, wouldn't you think that a bad economy is the best time to do a show like this? Maybe invite some people in need and make it the best Christmas ever?)

She did have a 'Favorite Things' episode in 2008, but gave the audience free recipes and downloadable Christmas songs. If you saw that episode you probably cringed a bit.

So either the economy must be better or Oprah has changed her mind. She had a 'Favorite Things' show -- actually two shows -- this year. And since it's her final season, you knew that the gifts were going to be special.

Life UneXpectedYou've got questions? I've got answers. I'm The Show Girl!

This week, I introduce you to a new show I love -- then spend a good chunk of time convincing you to love it too. Now I know we've got a while before 'Life UneXpected' premieres (Mon., Jan. 18, 9PM ET on The CW), but you can never be too careful! Plus, I've filed it under "New Things I'm Thankful For," so see? There's a fitting theme.

I also get the scoop on the big two-hour 'Storm Chasers' finale (Sun., Nov. 29, 9PM ET on Discovery) from the show's twister guru and IMAX filmmaker Sean Casey. And you won't want to miss my suggestions for TV-themed holiday presents. Awesomeness all around.

Want more? Email me TV questions at TheTVShowGirl@aol.com -- who knows, I might just give you an answer on the show. Now watch, enjoy and come back next week for more. Until then, happy TV watching! -- By Maggie Furlong
