ABC has announced its slate of holiday programming, inviting families everywhere to cozy up on the couch under a warm blanket and get into the yuletide spirit with beloved classics and new favorites.

The network is celebrating the most wonderful time of the year with its holiday slate including a new iteration of the ratings superstar “The Disney Family Singalong” franchise featuring a festive new special, “The Disney Holiday Singalong,” on Monday, November 30th (8:00-9:00pm). Earlier this year, ABC’s “The Disney Family Singalong” and “The Disney Family Singalong: Volume II” drew in a combined 22.3 million Total Viewers after 35 days of delayed viewing on linear and digital platforms.

Additional highlights include a special fifth anniversary of the Thanksgiving evening staple “The Wonderful World of Disney: Magical Holiday Celebration”; a reimagined “Disney Parks Magical Christmas Day Celebration”; “CMA Country Christmas” from Nashville; a bright new season of “The Great Christmas Light Fight,” which received a new season order as well; new holiday-themed episodes of ABC comedies and “General Hospital”; and the network broadcast premiere of “The Greatest Showman.” Top it all off with a sprinkling of classic holiday favorites and settle in, ABC is about to get fa-la-la-mazing.
