CBS Is Airing All Kinds of Christmas Specials This Year—Here’s the Lineup

It's time to cuddle up on the couch and enjoy a classic Christmas experience, courtesy of CBS.

It’s only the beginning of December, but we’d be lying if we said we weren’t already 100% into the Christmas vibes. It’s not like the Christmas music is just going to play itself, you know?

Whenever this time of year rolls around, I can’t help but fall face-first into nostalgia. Going to Grandma’s house, helping her in the kitchen with the ham and eventually gathering around the Christmas tree with everyone in my family are some of my favorite holiday memories. Sometimes we’d have a quiet, traditional Christmas Eve with one another, and sometimes we’d indulge in festive Christmas movies (hello, Hallmark!) and games to pass the time.

What Specials Will CBS Be Airing?

Frosty the Snowman, Frosty Returns and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer have already aired on CBS. But there are a handful of specials that will show in December, too. Here are the details:

  • A Holly Dolly Christmas, December 6 @ 8:30 p.m. ET
  • Garth & Trisha Live! A Holiday Concert Event, December 20 @ 8:30 p.m. ET
  • The 22nd Annual A Home For The Holidays, December 20 @ 9:30 p.m. ET
  • The Price Is Right At Night, December 21 @ 8:00 p.m. ET
  • Let’s Make A Deal Primetime, December 21 @ 9:00 p.m. ET

We may have to pause our Netflix Christmas movie marathon, if only to catch Dolly Parton on CBS. If you’re a Dolly fan, she has a Christmas musical on Netflix, too.

Don’t Miss a Single Show!

It’s not quite Christmas without holiday specials, is it?

If you’re anything like my family, there’s nothing you love more than scouring every channel for Christmas specials. Remember, the CBS specials started on November 27, the day after Thanksgiving, but there’s still plenty more to see. Tune in, and have a happy holiday courtesy of CBS!

If you’re seriously on a Christmas kick, you won’t want to miss all of these festive Freeform flicks this year.
