The Dinner Party Holiday Special


Airs Thursday, December 24, at 9 p.m. This November-December, we're making available a special episode of The Dinner Party Download stuffed with holiday goodness. Hip-hop legend Darryl McDaniels, the "DMC" of Run DMC, riffs on his mega-hit "Christmas in Hollis" - and on the tenderness of Charlie Brown ... TV's "Naked Chef" Jamie Oliver injects some health into our holiday menu (but don't mess with his decadent cheese toasty) ... Humorist Fran Lebowitz keeps the season from getting too sappy with very tart etiquette tips ... And chart-toppers Macklemore & Ryan Lewis craft a Yuletide playlist, featuring crazy relatives and, even crazier, David Bowie's "Labyrinth." You'll also hear winning remembrances of both The Star Wars Holiday Special – arguably the worst show ever on TV – and of National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, courtesy of star Beverly D'Angelo. Plus, a tale of Santa's whereabouts ... during the Iranian Revolution. Featuring good cheer and comic relief, the episode's a perfect companion to the hectic and happy holiday season. Join us, won't you?
