Wednesday, Nov. 30 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) RUDOLPH THE RED NOSED REINDEER -- The longest running holiday special in television history celebrates its 41st anniversary.

Saturday, Dec. 17 (8:30-9:00 PM, ET/PT) FROSTY RETURNS -- The magic still in his old silk hat, the holiday season's perennially popular original dancing snowman continues his adventures and skates on the edge of danger. Jonathan Winters is the narrator with John Goodman as the voice of Frosty.

Jones and Rebecca Gayheart star in this holiday drama, the sequel to the highly rated 2002 television movie "The Christmas Shoes," in which the young boy from the original film has grown up and meets a young woman and a boy who both, with the help of a Christmas miracle, change his life.
