rudolph'Greatest Holiday Moments: TV & Film Countdown'
(8PM, NBC)
Nothing says holiday TV like a clip show, but this is actually a cool primetime filler, featuring a countdown of the tube and big-screen clips that spell ho-ho-holiday fun every time you see them.

'Frosty the Snowman'? He's in there. 'Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer'? Check. In fact, several Rankin-Bass clips pop up in the special, which also includes classic scenes from 'Home Alone,' 'Elf,' 'It's a Wonderful Life' and 'A Charlie Brown Christmas.'

And, of course, no countdown of holiday gems would be complete without 'A Christmas Story,' that classic flick that recently celebrated its 25th anniversary and will once again air in a 24-hour marathon on TBS this year.
