All hail Christmas Season 2016! Such a joyful time of year. Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and so much more! We are one big happy family at this time of year, putting aside our differences and problems as best we can to embrace the spirit of the season and all that it offers. Good will toward men!
And, my go – to TV show to jumpstart the season is always the NBC produced Christmas in Rockefeller Center. This season, the show airs on Wednesday, November 30th at 8:00 PM.
Matt Lauer, Savannah Guthrie, Al Roker and Hoda Kotb host the 84th annual tree-lighting ceremony on New York. Scheduled performers include Tony Bennett, Neil Diamond, Josh Groban and more. And Alec Baldwin and Kate McKinnon will help light the Christmas tree at the end of the live 60-minute show.
This is a terrific line-up and I haven’t listed all the performers. I thought I would keep a few surprises in play for you. Ha!
Bonus: Hey Dolly Parton fans! Her two-hour NBC Christmas special airs immediately following the Rockefeller special. This should be a very entertaining show as well. What a great night for TV. Got to love this time of year!
