Three moms put their daughters into festive dresses for a showy "Glitzmas" pageant in this holiday-themed episode of the odd yet mesmerizing reality show. Mini-diva Laila, 3, is poised to be the next Eden Wood. After demanding "personal space," she shakes it on stage in a Rockettes-style getup! Bizarre as it all is, the tykes seem genuinely happy, and the parents this time are likable. Especially mom Katie, a wry free spirit who encourages her girl Riley, 5, and boy Bob, 6, to compete (he wears a tux). Her motto: "Be fierce!" (TLC, 10 p.m.)
