Saturday Night Live Presents: A Very Gilly Christmas

Kristen Wiig hosts this Christmas special as her most-annoying character, Gilly— but at least we'll get to see Steve Martin, Alec Baldwin, and a host of classic SNL holiday skits.

10 p.m., CBS

The Mentalist

A baseball hits Jane (Simon Baker) in the head during an investigation, causing a childhood flashback and a resurgence of his daddy issues.

10 p.m., MTV

Jersey Shore

MTV isn't going to air the part where Snooki gets punched—but at least you'll get to see what she did in the nightclub to deserve it.

11:35 p.m., CBS

Late Show with David Letterman

Dave welcomes Sherlock Holmes' Jude Law—but John Krasinski is on The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien. Such a toss-up.
