Watch: Missing famous original "Project Runway"? Host Heidi Klum is on "Good Morning America." And you shouldn't miss "The Chew," which has our favorite inappropriate topic pairing of the week: Kermit the Frog is the guest, and they're also covering holiday ham recipes. Kind of offensive in light of his long-term relationship with Miss Piggy, no? One last "missing" pun: "Katie" is all about stories of people who vanished without a trace, for you true-crime fans out there. On another note, it looks like Richie Sambora is co-hosting "The Late Late Show" all week, which could be really weird and fun.
Skip: Kimmel, which is in reruns all week.

Watch: We're not nearly as excited about "The Hobbit" as Colbert -- his guests all week are from the film -- but if you're a fan of "Sherlock," you won't want to miss Martin "Bilbo Baggins/John Watson" Freeman's appearance tonight. Gingerbread houses get cutthroat on "The Chew" with a visit to one of the country's biggest house-building competitions. And Cy Young winner/SAT-word fan R.A. Dickey is visiting "The Daily Show."

Skip: Holiday hairdos on "Rachael Ray." What, you gel it into the shape of a Christmas tree? Kardashian-phobes should avoid Leno, who's hosting Khloe.Wednesday, December 5
Watch: It's a random-guest-combo fiesta on "The View" starting today, as Jenny McCarthy and Mike Tyson are the guest co-hosts for the rest of the week. "Lucky Magazine" editor Lori Bergamotto gets real about whether non-models can wear mismatched prints on "GMA." And Ellen presides over a "Grease" reunion when John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John come by.
Skip: Fran Drescher's voice isn't for everyone; if it's not for you, skip "The Talk" today.

Watch: Four holiday decorating dilemmas on "Rachael Ray"; let's hope one of the dilemmas they tackle is that single bulb that always burns out in the light string. Freed member of the West Memphis 3 Damien Echols and his wife Lorri come to "The View." Tom Selleck may be giving out mustache-maintenance tips on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon," or you could hope for a loose-cannon moment from Oliver Stone on "Last Call With Carson Daly." And all the living members of Led Zeppelin are on with Letterman.
Skip: We like Tori Spelling and everything -- she seems nice, and she's a good host on "Craft Wars" -- but if we're not the only ones who feel like she has a new baby every year, you can probably pass on her "GMA" appearance, where she'll…talk about her new baby.

Watch: Another delightful random guest combo on Letterman tonight as Dustin "Tootsie" Hoffman joins boy band One Direction. Also check out Donnie "The One Who Doesn't Take Himself So Seriously" Wahlberg of "Blue Bloods" on "Live with Kelly & Michael."
Skip: Sherri Shepherd is flogging her new wig line on "The View." Sports radio host Jim Rome will be just a little too loud on Leno.
Tori Spelling talked to "The View" about party planning in April; watch the segment right here:
