Anything Good on Television on Christmas Eve?, 11 December 2009
Author: ( from United States

Bud and Kelly manage to get a jukebox as a Christmas present to their parents. Al and Peggy are sitting in the front of the television as the kids try to transport the jukebox until Christmas morning. It's during this time that the D'Arcys are having a Christmas Eve party without inviting the Bundys but don't tell them about it which annoys Al because he likes to go. So Peggy and Al are sitting on the television trying to find something suitable to watch on Christmas Eve. They have choices like the Cheers finale on NBC, It's a Wonderful Life with Jimmy Stewart, a Hitler Christmas on the A&E channel, Suzanne Pleshette in a female version of "A Christmas Carol" where Al jokes "who plays the female?" Anyway, it's not a great Christmas episode.
