New Holiday Shows
❆American Giving Awards (Dec. 8, NBC) -- What better time than the season of giving to honor great givers? Joel McHale (“Community”) hosts this special, which honors the United States’ most deserving charities and gives one of them a $1 million donation, with six-figure awards for the runners-up. Online votes pick the winner from five organizations representing education, human rights, health and wellness, community leadership and youth groups. Musical performances and special surprises are also on tap.
❆The Mistle-Tones (Dec. 9, ABC Family) -- Holly (Tia Mowry), a talented young singer, is distressed to discover that a coveted position in a Christmas choir has gone to the director’s less-talented best friend (Tori Spelling). She starts her own group, the Mistle-Tones, and challenges the other ensemble to a sing-off on Christmas Eve. Along the way, she gains some new friends, a new love and a new appreciation for the season in this tuneful new tale.
❆Help for the Holidays (Dec. 9, Hallmark Channel) -- Summer Glau (“Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles”) stars in this new fantasy as Christine, one of Santa’s elves who loves Christmas but is bored with the North Pole life. When Santa receives an urgent wish from a youngster (Mason Cook), he puts Christine on the case. The boy and his sister (Izabela Vidovic) want a real family Christmas with their parents (Eva La Rue, Dan Gauthier), who are too busy running a holiday store to pay attention to their kids. As their new nanny, Christine sets out to effect an attitude adjustment.
