FYI's Santa-Approved Holiday TV Highlights At A Glance

fyi television holiday tv listing supplement
A guide to holiday TV highlights is pretty much indispensable during the season of giving and gathering together. That's why we've selected only the finest choices from the vastness of all holiday viewing for this quick guide at a glance.

Because not only does such a guide take you to the best holiday viewing, it adopts the new attitude of being served up the best of what you're looking for--rather than a surfing through a grid.

Plus, some of these programs can keep friends, relatives, and co-workers focused in harmony on the spirit of the season. Just like the guide was meant for.

We hope you'll find it entertaining, useful, and informative--like all the things we do. And Happy Holidays from all of us at FYI Television.
