Look who's talking in daytime: Dec. 24 to Dec. 28
Christmas celebrations and New Year's prep
With the holiday upon us, daytime kicks off the week of Dec. 24 with Christmas celebrations around the dial. After Monday and Tuesday, however, it's all about wrapping up the year and preparing for New Year's Eve. You'll find fresh episodes of "GMA" and "Today" all week, but most talk shows will re-air popular episodes. Matt Damon ("Promised Land"), Judd Apatow ("This Is 40") and Chris Pine and Kevin Costner ("Jack Ryan") are talking up their new movies, while stars from "The Real Housewives of Orange County," "Baby Daddy," "Couples Therapy" and "Down Home With the Neelys" are making the rounds. Catch performances from Aretha Franklin, Rod Stewart and Colbie Callait, Scott McCreery, Il Volo, Katherine Jenkins, Andre Rieu and Broadway's "Annie" star Lilla Crawford. Other notables coming to daytime include Trisha Yearwood, Ryan Seacrest, Marlee Matlin and Neve Campbell. Plus, look for encore interviews with the "Twilight Saga," "The Hobbit" and "Parental Guidance" casts, Bradley Cooper, Taylor Swift, Judge Judy and more, along with some rocking encore performances.
