This time of year can be bad for the holiday blues. Here’s 11 shows to watch when you need something to get your mind on something else.

Some of us are still smack dab in the middle of our holiday, while all that’s left for some of us is just trying to untangle the tinsel from our hair. It’s a busy time, and no matter how much you enjoy this time of year, the holiday blues can get the best of us. Where ever you are in your holiday marathon, you might be getting a little frowny.

If you’re anything like me, “a little frowny” might translate into “angry, annoyed, and generally fed up with humanity in general.” But don’t measure your holiday stress against mine. I’m a giant Grinch who only got coal and switches in my stocking. But sometimes you need a little nudge to find your inner Grinch, even if it’s for only one episode at a time.

Whether you fall on one end of the continuum or the other, you  might need a little break from the craziness. If you’re building up toward a meltdown, check out these shows to offer a release before things get too serious.

Here are 11 shows that are guaranteed to bring you out of your holiday funk, whatever is causing it, and put you down exactly where you want to be.
