Hosted by Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles, the special boasts performances from the likes of Brad Paisley, Martina McBride, Reba and admitted Yuletide fanatic Darius Rucker.

Questions: A couple of questions on NBC's Monday night lineup. First, what has your opinion been on Chuck this year? I never thought I would say this, but I find myself wishing they had tied up everything last year, when I thought Chuck was at an all-time high in quality. This season has seemed extremely uneven and uninspired to me, with the usually unbearable Buy More plotlines made even worse by the fact that there isn't a whole lot going on in the A-plot week to week either. Your thoughts?
Secondly, I have been enjoying The Event a great deal, but find myself not caring at all whenever the scene shifts to Sean and Leila. Everything they are involved in just seems so small and trite compared to the big conspiracy storyline, and I also don't find myself impressed by those actors' performances. I understand that since Lost and the brilliant work that show did with its characters, all of these high-concept shows have tried to incorporate the everyday hero to resonate with viewers, but the difference there (other than character portrayal) is that those heroes were thrust into the meat of the plot, rather than being relegated to the side plots we have seen in The Event.

Casts of Jersey Shore and Barbara Walters
The holidays are approaching, which means it's time for a Barbara Walters special or two.

Restrepo (Monday, 9/8c, National Geographic Channel)
Combat has rarely been captured with such authentic immediacy and gritty urgency as in this wrenching you-are-there Afghan War chronicle from Sebastian Junger (The Perfect Storm) and Tim Hetherington. Their cameras capture the near-constant tension of life (and, naturally, death) with a platoon stationed in a treacherous outpost — named for a beloved fallen medic — where the next firefight attack could come at any moment. There are moments of raunchy levity and rowdy rough-housing as the men settle in to this no-man's-land, but the overall impact is devastating. There's a reason this has already been short-listed in the documentary feature category at this year's Oscars. ...

How does Pair of Kings' Kelsey Chow balance college with her career?
"I'm very lucky to have a strong support system with my friends and my family," she says. "They have kept me grounded."
Unfortunately, even promising television sometimes gets the ax. Intricate, intelligent writing didn't keep AMC from crossing off Rubicon, and Huge's witty teen dialogue and emotional depth failed to win a huge audience. Not even super producer JJ Abrams or the combined star power of Maura Tierney and Rob Morrow could rescue Undercovers or The Whole Truth, respectively. So we ask: Which of these canceled shows deserves more time?
