It's the most wonderful time of the year! The holidays are about food, family and lots and lots of TV. Let's face it: when the food is gone and/or your crazy aunt is annoying the crap out of you, there's no one better to turn to than a Hallmark Christmas movie. Or Buddy the Elf. Or Charlie Brown. Or the Griswolds. Or Kevin McAllister. Or George Bailey. Or yes, even Ryan Seacrest. And they'll all be there for you again this year!

We've compiled a handy viewing guide below of your favorite — and brand new — holiday programming that's scheduled to air over the next six weeks, so you can plan accordingly when you need to sneak out of a super boring family gathering and know when to make room on your DVR. You're welcome.

Be sure to check back as new dates and programs are announced. All times ET.
