Tonight's TV Hot List: Saturday, Dec. 13, 2008
Paige Davis, Trading Spaces
10 pm/ET TLC
There's a holiday twist when a single mom swaps with her neighbors, who could give Clark Griswold a run for his money with their over-the-top Christmas decorations. Each team receives the standard $1,000 to make over each other's rooms, but they're also given an extra $500 for seasonal outdoor decor. — Karen Andzejewicz

Miser Brothers' Christmas
8 pm/ET ABC Family
Mickey Rooney once again lends his voice to the character of Santa Claus in this animated tale about what happens one Christmas when Santa gets injured. Nasty North Wind secretly sabotages Santa's new high-tech sleigh, and when Santa takes the sleigh out for a spin, he finds himself caught in the cross fire of the battling Miser Brothers. The brothers get blamed for hurting Santa and therefore must fill in for him---but this throws a wrench in North Wind's devious plan. — Jennifer Sankowski

Most Wonderful Time of the Year
9 pm/ET Hallmark
Hosting visiting relatives for the holidays can be a sticky situation for some families, and the gang in tonight's original movie is no exception. Brooke Burns plays a single mom whose visiting uncle (Henry Winkler) invites a stranger he befriended on the plane to stay with the family. And though the impulsive invite could be a recipe for disaster, the effervescent stranger also has a strange effect on the family, whose enthusiasm for Christmas has waned over the years. — Brie Hearn

Naked Brothers Band
9 pm/ET Nickleodeon
Whoopi Goldberg appears in this Christmas-themed episode that also features Natasha Bedingfield and Leon Thomas performing a song with Nat. Perhaps these guest stars can cheer him up, because Nat's having a blue Christmas: Rosalina's letters to him lack that romantic quality he craves. His depressed attitude even threatens to ruin the band's benefit concert for Save the Children, which includes some humorous holiday tunes such as "Termites Munching on the Christmas Tree" and "Christmas Stinks." — Jennifer Sankowski

The Greatest Game Ever Played
9 pm/ET ESPN
In this age of dubbing above-average sports contests as "classics" seemingly every week, it's nice to see two hours of ESPN programming devoted to a true classic: the landmark 1958 Colts-Giants NFL Championship Game. Restored and colorized game footage from Yankee Stadium is mixed with unique interviews featuring surviving players (Frank Gifford, Gino Marchetti) and some of their modern-day counterparts with the Super Bowl-winning Colts and Giants (Peyton and Eli Manning). The game lit the fuse for pro football's eventual explosion in our sports universe. — Roger Leister
