Syfy brings a triple dose of Christmas cheer with Eureka, Warehouse 13, and Haven?!

Eureka and Warehouse 13 are returning for another round of holiday warm fuzzy episodes tonight on Syfy, and Haven is joining them with its first Christmas episode as well. Eureka ends up animated (in multiple styles from stopmotion to anime, no less) with snowman ninjas, polar bears, and more. Warehouse 13 gives agent Pete Lattimer the It’s a Wonderful Life treatment (Don’t worry about how this fits with the season 3 ending!). And Christmas comes to the weird town of Haven — in the middle of summer.

And being Syfy, there’s also some holiday specials from their other staples: Ghost Hunters on December 7, and an original movie on December 10: Snowmageddon. Over Christmas, the channel will be running marathons of several shows, including Merlin and Being Human, while they will ring in 2012 with their annual marathon of Twilight Zone.

On TV: Warehouse 13, Leverage renewed, new Thrones characters, and more

Fresh off the heels of killing, renewing, and really killing Eureka, SyFy has renewed its most watched series, Warehouse 13 for a fourth season in 2012. Entertainment Weekly discusses Syfy’s image post-Eureka, and announced a fifth season of Leverage on TNT. Also not axed yet: Syfy had to quash rumors that its new superhuman show, Alphas, had been canned.

Can’t wait for the next season of Game of Thrones? Check out these three new character castings on Blastr. Or check out this tribute video: (Warning: NSFW!)

SyFy cancels Eureka, plays bait-and-switch

After Twitter exploded with rage that Eureka was being cancelled last week, The Wrestling Channel SyFy announced that they were giving them six episodes to wrap up the series, next year. Apparently, they have now changed their minds.

Wil Wheaton, who has been playing the hilariously petty Dr. Parrish on the show, wrote up his reaction on his blog. And here’s a round-up of the fan and cast reactions.

After the way they played Stargate fans, you’d think SyFy would have learned how to better break up with a show.

Eureka! There’s a 3rd Season!

In all my Stargate Atlantis renewal euphoria, I failed to realize that the announcement in Variety also included news that Eureka was getting its third season, as well. More wackiness to come!

No word on Flash Gordon, but would anyone be terribly shocked if it didn’t get renewed? It’s been struggling. And no amount of Battlestar Galactica Razor teasing seems to be able to help it.

In other TV news, Pushing Daisies is blooming with happiness over its full season order. (Why, yes. I did have to go there. Look how much I’ve used the whole eureka thing.)

Eureka! You can go green!

So, okay. They can’t give you a house with SARAH running things. But the smart folks at Eureka are offering a contest to help you turn your home eco-friendly with the Eureka $mart House Energy Efficiency Challenge. (Since Global Warming was the result of one of their experiments going wrong, they have to make up for it somehow!)

Sadly, this does require some decent and/or creative writing as you need to come up with 250 words about why you deserve to win. (Oh. And save the planet and all that stuff.)
