When the business begins to falter, his estranged daughter (Candace Cameron Bure) returns home to help her dad save Santaville from a mysterious investor. During the course of their efforts, father and daughter also take steps to repair their damaged relationship. — Brie HearnFor clips of Moonlight & Mistletoe, visit our Online Video Guide.Ellen's Even Bigger Really Big Show 9 pm/ET TBS Ellen has not left the building.
