Not the usual holiday happiness.
6 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this Christmas episode, the Mayor is hosting the winner of the New York spelling bee, Justin, at at press conference. During the conference someone asks the Mayor a question about the season and he blurts out something about there not being a Santa Claus. The Mayor had forgot about the young student he had as a guest and it causes an incident with the press.

So now the staff is trying to right the wrong and brings Justin back for a visit with Santa. But things go horrible wrong when Mike gets into a fight with one of the Santa's. Mike is bound to make the situation right so he will try a third time, at Justin's house, to make the Santa visit a reality.

Even though the way the episode ended was rather funny, the rest of the show just did not have any flare. I am usually a softy when it comes to seasonal shows but this show left me more disturbed than satisfied. The show was well acted but not my cup of tea for the holiday season.
