One thought on “‘Willow,’ ‘George & Tammy,’ ‘Firefly Lane,’ ‘Christmas in Rockefeller Center’ and everything else you don’t want to miss on TV this week.

  1. So obviously Reindeer in Here looks weird / borderline awful (?) but it’s already on the DVR because A) I have a 3 year old that loves all things Christmas and B ) that cast is bonkers good.
