New Holiday Shows Finding Mrs. Claus (12/2, Lifetime)

Las Vegas isn’t the first location that comes to mind when you think of Christmas, but it’s the setting for this new holiday tale. Oscar winner Mira Sorvino (“Mighty Aphrodite”) has the title role of Santa’s spouse, who’s feeling neglected by her husband (Will Sasso, “The Three Stooges”) as the big night approaches. She decides to visit Vegas – not to gamble but to help make a Christmas wish come true for a little girl who lives there. A repentant Santa follows her there, and what happens in Vegas puts Christmas in jeopardy.

American Giving Awards (12/8, NBC) What better time than the season of giving to honor great givers? Joel McHale (“Community”) hosts this special, which honors the United States’ most deserving charities and gives one of them a $1 million donation, with six-figure awards for the runners-up. Online votes pick the winner from five organizations representing education, human rights, health and wellness, community leadership and youth groups. Musical performances and special surprises are also on tap.

The Mistle-Tones (12/9, ABC Family)

Holly (Tia Mowry), a talented young singer, is distressed to discover that a coveted position in a Christmas choir has gone to the director’s less-talented best friend (Tori Spelling). She starts her own group, the Mistle-Tones, and challenges the other ensemble to a sing-off on Christmas Eve. Along the way, she gains some new friends, a new love and a new appreciation for the season in this tuneful new tale.

Help for the Holidays (12/9, Hallmark Channel)

B Gr Ce Ho urge ea rti lid r t S fic ay Ba toc ate G r kin s Mift g S ak tuf e fer s

!

Summer Glau (“Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles”) stars in this new fantasy as Christine, one of Santa’s elves who loves Christmas but is bored with the North Pole life. When Santa receives an urgent wish from a youngster (Mason Cook), he puts Christine on the case. The boy and his sister (Izabela Vidovic) want a real family Christmas with their parents (Eva La Rue, Dan Gauthier), who are too busy running a holiday store to pay attention to their kids. As their new nanny, Christine sets out to effect an attitude adjustment.

Royal Pains: Off-Season Greetings (12/16, USA Network) Wedding bells are ringing along with the Christmas bells in this two-hour holiday-themed episode of the hit cable drama series about a concierge doctor in New York’s exclusive Hamptons enclave. As Paige and Evan’s (Brooke D’Orsay, Paulo Costanzo) long-awaited nuptial day approaches, Evan and his brother, Hank (Mark Feuerstein), head to Las Vegas for the bachelor party. Paige and Divya (Reshma Shetty) go out of town for a bachelorette getaway of their own but wind up in Vegas themselves through a series of bizarre circumstances. Surprises await all of them in Sin City, along with the opportunity for someone to take a gamble that could change everything. Back in the Hamptons, a snowstorm threatens to scuttle Hank and Paige’s best-laid plans for a dream wedding day. Along the way, fans of the series will get a peek at the Lawson brothers’ childhoods, meet Hank’s first love, and discover how Hank’s previous romances and his relationship with his brother made him the man he is today. Emma Caulfield plays one of those women from Hank’s past, and Jill Flint returns to the role of Jill Casey, now working in Africa.

Joe Mantegna “You’re talking to an Italian guy, and I know this is going to sound strange, but it would be my Aunt Pauline’s ravioli. That’s always my go-to thing as I think about Christmas. She’s long passed now, but if I could relive that, that would be something.”

“I usually don’t even eat (my standing rib roast). I cut the roast off the bones and save the bones for myself. I just gnaw on the bones. At Christmastime, everybody gets these big slabs of meat, and I get a pile of bones. And it’s just what I want for Christmas, a glass of red wine and a pile of bones.”

Freddy Rodriguez

“There is a dish that is made around the holidays pastelles, sort of like a meat pie made with grinded plantains and seasoned with banana leaves and adobo and sofrito. And it’s timeconsuming to make, which is why they only make it during the holidays.”

Padma Lakshmi Sandra Lee

“Hmmm, white chocolate egg nog.”

“I like stuffing. I think turkey is fine, but for me, the sides are where it’s at. I make stuffing about 4,000 different ways. I think this year I’m going to do it with Chinese sausage.”

Dry Aged Standing Rib Roast With Sage au Jus COURTESY ALTON BROWN, 2012 Ingredients 1 (4 bone in) choice standing rib roast, approximately 10 pounds canola oil, to coat 2 teaspoons kosher salt freshly ground black pepper, plenty to coat the roast 1 cup red wine 1 cup water 4 leaves fresh sage Directions 1. To dry-age the roast: Place a refrigerator thermometer at the back of the bottom shelf of your refrigerator. Reduce the temperature to just below 38° F. Cover the bottom of a roasting pan with several layers of paper

towels. Place the roast, bone side down, on the towels, and store—uncovered—at the back of the bottom shelf of your refrigerator. Allow the meat to age for 3 to 5 days, checking the refrigerator temperature often.*

reached. Return the roast to the hot oven for 10-15 minutes or until you’ve achieved your desired crust. Remove and transfer roast to a cutting board. Rest at least 15 minutes before carving.

2. When ready to cook, remove the roast from the refrigerator and bring to room temperature for 1 hour.

6. Drain off the fat from the glass pan and scrape the drippings to a 2-quart saucepan. Place the pan over low heat, add the wine and water and reduce by half. Stirring with a wooden spatula. Roll the sage leaves in between your fingers to release the flavors and aroma. Add to the sauce and cook for 1 minute. Strain and serve with the roast.

3. Place a 16-inch round azalea terra cotta planter into a cold oven. Invert the planter to become a lid over the bottom of the planter. The oven should be cold to start, to avoid any cracking in the terra cotta pieces. Turn the oven to 200˚ F. 4. Rub the roast with canola oil. Remember to rub the bones with oil, as well. Once the roast is completely coated with oil, sprinkle with the kosher salt and enough freshly ground pepper to coat the surface. Place the roast over a glass bake-ware dish slightly smaller than the length of the roast. This will catch the drippings needed for the sauce. Finally, place a probe thermometer into the center of the roast and set for 118˚F. Put the roast and the glass dish onto the planter dish, cover with the terra cotta pot, and return to the oven. Roast for approximately 4-7 hours, until it reaches an internal temperature of 120˚ F. 5. Remove the planter with the roast and turn oven up to 500 degrees F. Allow the roast to rest until an internal temperature of 130˚ F is

7. Carve the roast with an electric knife. Start by separating the bones from the meat by placing the roast with the bone ends facing with the meat side up. Cut, following the curve of the bone, towards the meat. Save the ribs for yourself and you’ve basically got a big, boneless roast. Remove any large layers of fat. Then start slicing from the end and make sure you don’t go less than a half-inch. *Draining Rig: Perforate the body of a large, hard plastic storage container, place the meat on the lid of said container and use the body as the lid. Place the standing rib roast upright onto a half sheet pan fitted with a cooling rack. The rack is essential for drainage. The lowest deepest part of your fridge is still ideal for stashing this rig. Yield: 10 servings

Dasher and Dancer’s Pick It’s a Wonderful Life NBC Dec. 1, 24

It just wouldn’t be Christmas without this 1946 Frank Capra-directed classic. Its lukewarm box-office performance upon its release gave no indication it would become the seasonal staple it long has been, due in part to its plentiful television exposure. James Stewart makes the perfect George Bailey, the hapless Bedford Falls citizen whose experience of seeing how life would be without him has been echoed by countless TV-series episodes. Donna Reed, Lionel Barrymore and (as wing-earning angel Clarence) Henry Travers lend great support.

Things I Learned From ‘Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer’

BY KATE O’HARE

The stop-motion-animated classic has snappy songs, cute characters and some life lessons.

1. “Nobody likes a skinny Santa.” Uttered by Mrs. Claus, this flies in the face of the modern obsession with staying thin. But Santa is an eternal symbol of abundance and plenty. Nobody likes a skinny Buddha either. 2. “There are more important things in life than comfort: selfrespect!” Papa deer Donner to son Rudolph, who’s sporting a fake nose, and possibly the first animated endorsement of artificial facial enhancement. 3. “It’s fascinating, you’ve no idea – molars and bicuspids and incisors … .” Hermey the Elf explains why dentistry is way better than making toys. 4. “A toy is never truly happy until it is loved by a child.” King Moonracer of the Island of Misfit Toys emphasizes the importance of fulfilling your destiny. 5. “You can’t run away from your troubles.” Sam the Snowman explains what Rudolph discovers as he grows up. 6. “The outside world is up to its ears in danger.” Preach it, Sam the Snowman. 7. “Maybe misfits have a place, too.” Santa sees the light after Hermey’s dentistry skills and Rudolph’s red nose save Christmas.

Carly Rae Jepsen What is your favorite holiday song?

BY JACQUELINE CUTLER

with the fam. Christmas is always in Mission (B.C.). I share time between my dad’s place and my mom’s place. I have a huge family and we have relatives who are Swedish, relatives who are Italian, so we have an Italian Christmas, a Swedish Christmas, a regular old Canadian Christmas … yeah, we do it all. It’s like a full-on month-long holiday. Apparently everyone in the music business just shuts down for two-and-a-half weeks so I’m going to turn off my phone and just embrace pajamas for like a week.“

“I love Christmas so it’s hard to narrow it down but ‘Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas’ is one of my favs from ‘Meet Me in St. Louis.’ I love old fashioned movies.”

What is your favorite holiday show or movie?

“A tie between ‘White Christmas’ and ‘Holiday Inn.’ Me and my stepmom have to watch them religiously every year. It’s our thing.“

What is your favorite holiday destination?

“Home, of course. There’s always this little inkling that I think everybody has of ‘lets ditch the snow and go somewhere hot’ but I don’t know, there’s something about it being Christmas and there being snow and freezing your buns off and eating lots of food and hanging

What is your favorite gift given?

“I worked really hard on a song for my mom one year and that was a gift that meant a lot to me.”

What is your favorite gift received?

“I received some concert tickets one year and it was really good because it was open-ended, like ‘hey, whenever you want to go see a concert this year I’m taking you, so whoever comes to town let me know and we’ll go.’ I picked Norah Jones and I got to see her play at the Orpheum and that was really great.”

Holiday Guide 2012

A ‘Christmas Story’ that never gets old returns again BY JAY BOBBIN

The holiday season has certain entertainment staples it just wouldn’t be the holidays without. Among them: Rudolph, Frosty, the Grinch … and Ralphie. The wide-eyed child who literally dreams of finding a Red Ryder BB gun under the tree – despite the famous warning, “You’ll shoot your eye out” – spends a lot of time in homes at the yuletide, thanks especially to the nowtraditional 24-hour marathon TBS gives “A Christmas Story” from Christmas Eve through Christmas Day. The Jean Shepherd-inspired 1983 comedy made a young star of Peter Billingsley, who’s since become

quite active behind the cameras. He often teams with close friend Vince Vaughn, having been the director of the movie “Couples Retreat” and an executive producer of such films as “Four Christmases” and the TBS sitcom “Sullivan & Son,” which returns next year for Season 2. Even with all his recent activity, the now-41-year-old Billingsley maintains a warm spot in his heart for “A Christmas Story,” as do so many others. “There’s a very loyal fan base for that movie,” he acknowledges. “Those who like it know it and quote it, and it’s a part of the family tradition of Christmas for them. And we

11 have not infringed on the reputation, or their enjoyment, of that film.” Billingsley tends to tune in himself at some point during the TBS marathon. “First of all, I apologize for being in people’s houses for 24 hours,” he says. “Now having ‘Sullivan & Son’ on the network, I feel like I’ve already been in the TBS family for as long as the marathon of ‘A Christmas Story’ has been going, so it’s nice to be doing that job with them. “The movie usually does wind up being on at my house, because we do Christmas with a lot of family and a lot of kids. And they like it, not just because their uncle is in it, but they enjoy it just on that level of being a tradition. It’s been enough years that it seems kind of normal when it’s on the kitchen TV, and you just hear it when you’re walking through to get some more coffee.” This year, there’s also “A Christmas Story 2,” a recent Warner Home Video release direct to DVD and Blu-ray. Billingsley doesn’t conceal that he’s less interested in that (“The original is as well as you could do a movie in that format, so why would you ever try to improve upon it?”) than in a stage version of “A Christmas Story” that’s making its Broadway debut this holiday season … especially since he’s one of its producers.

Holiday Movie Releases

“The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” (Dec. 14)

“Les Miserables” (Dec. 25)

The classic Victor Hugo story of Inspector Javert’s relentless pursuit of desperate thief Jean Valjean is no stranger to the screen, but this is the long-awaited film adaptation of Sir Cameron Mackintosh’s stage musical. Co-star (and newlywed) Anne Hathaway has the perfect movie showcase for the singing ability she’s demonstrated more than once at the Oscars. Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe play the central enemies, with Helena Bonham Carter and Amanda Seyfried also on board.

Any fan of “The Lord of the Rings” has known this is coming, thanks in no small part to the ongoing involvement of director Peter Jackson. This J.R.R. Tolkien-inspired start to another screen trilogy casts Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins, who meets and conquers his match in Gollum (“Rings” returnee Andy Serkis) in the course of a fantastic adventure. Elijah Wood, Orlando Bloom, Hugo Weaving and Ian McKellen are among other “Rings” alumni back as well.

“Jack Reacher” (Dec. 21)

“Parental Guidance” (Dec. 25)

Tom Cruise had a big Christmas last year with “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol,” and he and Paramount Pictures are hoping for a repeat with what’s envisioned as the first chapter of a franchise. The title character, created by Lee Child for a book series, is a military-police investigator whose probe of a multiple homicide turns increasingly dangerous. A big ace the film has is oscarwinning director-screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie (“The Usual Suspects”).

20th Century Fox has fared extremely well with feel-good family movies at the holidays (“Mrs. Doubtfire,” “Cheaper by the Dozen,” “Marley & Me,” etc.), and this comedy has all the elements to continue that tradition for the studio. Front and center is Billy Crystal, who helped shepherd the story of grandparents (played by him and Bette Midler) who step in to help their daughter (Marisa Tomei) raise her children. The result? A multigenerational clash that should yield some big laughs.

Movies to Watch on New Year’s Eve

“The Apartment” (1960):

Encompassing a holiday season, director Billy Wilder’s great, Oscarwinning comedy-drama culminates on New Year’s Eve … after upwardly mobile office drone C.C.
