THE WEST WING --(9:00PM-10:00PM) --(TV-PG)
"Abu El Banat"
BARTLET IS VISITED BY THREE WISE DAUGHTERS AT CHRISTMAS WHILE CHRISTIAN WORKERS ARE JAILED IN SUDAN -- The festive Christmas spirit at the annual White House tree-lighting is dimmed when the President (Martin Sheen) learns that Christian relief workers have been jailed in Islamic northern Sudan while he welcomes his three headstrong daughters -- including the returning Zoey (Elisabeth Moss) -- and is surprised to learn that his son-in-law (guest star Steven Eckholdt) wants to run for Congress in New Hampshire. Meanwhile, when the licenses of some doctors in Oregon are suspended after they administer drugs in an assisted suicide, Toby (Richard Schiff) tries to keep the administration from being bogged down in a debate -- and clashes with Will (Joshua Malina) when he tries to convince the Vice President to address the political hot potato. John Spencer, Bradley Whitford, Allison Janney, Dule Hill, Janel Moloney, Stockard Channing and Lily Tomlin also star. Annabeth Gish guest-stars.
