Today's holiday TV picks: 'West Wing,' 'Deadliest Catch,' 'Gavin & Stacey'

Okay, we’ve had our general discussion of how useful TV marathons can be during the holidays.

So now let’s move onto today’s top picks:

Bravo is showing all five of The West Wing Christmas episodes — they started at 8 a.m. Who better to spend Christmas Eve with than President Bartlet, CJ, Toby, and Leo?

Discovery has Deadliest Catch airing from 9 a.m. to midnight — perfect to distract that cranky uncle as you prepare the feast of the seven fishes (does crab count?)

BBC America has my own personal obsession, Gavin & Stacey, returning with their Christmas Special at 10 p.m. Smithy dressed as Santa Claus, I hope!?

Until tonight, we have a road-rage Smithy and Gavla singing “Do They Know It’s Christmas?”

What are you watching today, PopWatchers?

    Apparently there is a Ghost Hunters marathon on Syfy and I usually get sucked into a few of those…

    Thanks for the mention of West Wing, I ended up tuning into that. I miss that show!

    The Christmas Episodes of West Wing were some of the most intelligently written episodes in television history. I dare you to watch “Noel” and not get misty.

      I have seen Noel at least 10 times and get misty every time I watch it. These episodes are some of teh best writing on TV ever!

    I watch “Bartlet for America” every December 23 (the day the episode takes place), and get amazed all over again at how great John Spencer was. TV misses you, John.
