Here's a little Christmas present from Syfy! It's the network's 20th anniversary, so what better than a Syfy 20th Anniversary Special with a flock of Syfy stars to talk about the past, present and future of the channel? And there's a slew of midseason finales as Arrow, The Vampire Dairies and Beauty and the Beast sign off for the holidays.

Also this week, Dylan McDermott pays a visit to American Horror Story, a Chinese diplomat arrives to the island on Last Resort, Sheldon revisits Christmas memories over Dungeons & Dragons on The Big Bang Theory, the FBI get close to Reese on Person of Interest, Sherlock meets Watson's family on Elementary, Walter trips on LSD to gain an advantage against the Observers on Fringe, it's back to school for the gang on Haven, Shelley Long and George Wendt are Mr. and Mrs. Claws in The Merry In-Laws, zombies aren't the only problem on Syfy's Dead Season, a shrink falls for a Santa in The Real St. Nick, and a Christmas demon makes off with Steve on American Dad!.

Here's what we have to look forward to this week on sci-fi, fantasy and paranormal TV.
