BURBANK, Calif. � December 4, 2006 � Fans of mystery will find plenty to celebrate on Sleuth in December.

"We are offering viewers a December chock full of their favorite mystery programming," said Dan Harrison, Senior Vice President Emerging Networks, NBC Universal Cable Entertainment. "Sleuth continues this month with the most comprehensive amount of mystery programming available on the air."

From Sunday, December 24th through Monday, December 25th, Sleuth is presenting Christmas-themed mystery programming beginning with Stealing Christmas on Sunday at 11am and 7pm (ET) and Monday at 12pm and 8pm (ET). In Stealing Christmas, Jack (Tony Danza) and Harry (David Parker) are small time crooks who attempt to knock off a department store, only to get caught in a huge Christmas Eve sale. Jack ducks into a Photos-With-Santa display and, disguised as Santa, manages to escape. But he then runs into Sarah Gibson (Lea Thompson) who mistakes him for the Santa she hired for her Christmas party. Jack decides to play along, but he gets caught up in the holiday spirit, and begins to have second thoughts about "stealing Christmas."

The celebration continues on Sunday and Monday afternoon with fan favorite Sleuth characters: Michael and K.I.T.T. in Silent Knight, Robert McCall in Back Home, and Baltimore's finest in All Through the House.
