TV Watch List: Thursday, Jan. 5

Thirteen former contestants compete on “Project Runway All Stars.”

‘Project Runway All Stars’
REALITY. For the first time in this top-notch reality series’ history, memorable former contestants are given the chance to redeem themselves while competing against each other for another shot at the “P-Run” title (and cash). Fan faves Mondo Guerra and Austin Scarlett are among the 13 competitors; stepping into Heidi Klum and co.’s designer shoes are new judges Isaac Mizrahi, model Angela Lindvall and Marchesa founder Georgina Chapman.

‘Jersey Shore’
REALITY. The gang’s back in Seaside Heights, and all is well — well, except for Pauly D’s tan emergency and that whole weird Situation-Snooki-Jionni situation.
Season premiere, 9 p.m., MTV

‘24/7 Flyers/Rangers: Road to the NHL Winter Classic’
REALITY. The big outdoor game may already be in the books, but what
happened on the ice and in the locker room on Jan. 2 — ahem, Flyers
goaltender controversy — has yet to be seen. Too bad HBO’s all-access
cameras can’t follow these hockey-playing characters all season long.
Season finale, 10 p.m., HBO

‘Wipeout’
GAME SHOW. This wacky obstacle course contest was made for winter — just add blustery weather and you get new challenges like Snow Shovel Trouble and Pain in the Ice.
8 p.m., ABC

‘The Vampire Diaries’
DRAMA. Stefan has hidden the bodies of Klaus’ dead undead relatives, aka the original vampire clan. Eh, don’t worry Klaus. Family reunions aren’t all they’re cracked up to be anyway.
Midseason return, 8 p.m., The CW
