Jen Chaney’s Top Holiday Television Episodes

posted by Nell Minow

The Washington Post’s always-delightful Jen Chaney wrote about her favorite television series holiday episodes from “Seinfeld” and “South Park” to “Moonlighting” and “The O.C.”
Be sure to take a look as the column includes some great clips.

I remember the great “Dick Van Dyke Show” Christmas episode, with the gang putting on a show.

“Mad About You” had a sweet Christmas flashback as its main characters met in late December and had their first real talk at a Christmas party. “Barney Miller” had its own bittersweet take because no one — cop, victim, or suspect — wanted to be in the police station on Christmas. Especially Santa, who is there because he got mugged. The episode is available on Hulu along with other classic television show Christmas episodes from shows like “Chicago Hope,” “American Dad,” “House,” “Silver Spoons,” “Adam-12,” “The Bob Newhart Show,” and “Welcome Back, Kotter.”
