ITV released their festive highlights today, so I thought that would be a good opportunity to open this year's Christmas TV discussion thread.

The BBC is due to release their festive highlights in a couple of weeks.

ITV - full details are here.

Britain's Got Talent at Christmas
The Masked Singer (series 2)
The Story of SM:TV Live
Birds of a Feather
Beat The Chasers
The Chase: Celebrity Christmas Special
The Cube Celebrity Special
In For a Penny Christmas Special
Billy Connelly: It's Been a Pleasure...
Jennifer Saunders' Memory Lane
Who Wants to be a Millionaire
The Price Is Right
It's Clarkson on TV
The Big Quiz: Corrie v Emmerdale
Bradley Walsh's How To Win a Game Show
Gary Barlow's Night at the Museum
The Real Monty on Ice
Gordon, Gino and Fred: Desperately Seeking Santa
Stephen Fryís 21st Century Firsts
Dancing on Thin Ice with Torvill & Dean
Happy Birthday Mr Bean
The Savoy at Christmas

ITV seem to have made more of an effort than last year, which was basically entirely soaps, quizzes and films. It's Clarkson on TV sounds like a rip-off of Charlie Brooker's show on the BBC laugh.gif

For the first time, ITV is also planning to air Good Morning Britain, Lorraine and This Morning on Christmas Day (!)

Nice to hear ITV are switching things up a bit - I've heard rumours that BGT at Christmas is airing on Christmas Day, could this top the ratings for that day?

Looks like The Price Is Right is coming back for a full blown series sometime in the new year, unless its just a Christmas special, I just hope its not Alan Carr hosting it.

Why on earth are they having GMB and This Morning on Xmas day? Them shows usually stop on the final Friday before Xmas and then come back on 6th January.

The government has just said that ministers will be ending their boycott of the programme. What's the betting Johnson will appear on Christmas Day?

The real question is who do they expect to wake up at 6 AM just to watch that programme on Christmas day?

I can see the logic - Christmas Day will likely be very different this year with people being more isolated than usual. Having the usual morning faces will offer some comfort and familiarity for those in that situation.

I don't think it's ever been said that Piers Morgan brings comfort to people. kink.gif

Remember the "Big Night In" that took place on the BBC in the spring? there's going to be a New Years Eve version taking place along with a concert which will be shown on BBC.

First details of 'The Big New Year's In' on BBC One replacing the usual NYE concert and fireworks in London:

QUOTE
Since it is unlikely people will be able to go to big parties and gatherings, BBC One plans to do all it can to help people celebrate at home by creating a unique New Yearís Eve night of programming - The Big New Yearís In. A live entertainment show will run throughout the evening packed with famous faces, and an unforgettable concert leads up to a very special midnight celebration that the BBC has exclusive access to. BBC Scotland celebrates a special Hogmanay 2020, hosted by Susan Calman.
