NBC will air the first-ever TV special showcasing the Radio City Christmas Spectacular in early December. The one-hour special will be executive produced by Don Hewitt and co-hosted by Matt Lauer and Meredith Vieira of The Today Show.

As previously reported, Radio City Music Hall will present a revamped version of its beloved 75-year-old show, November 9-December 30. This year's Spectacular will be directed and choreographed by Linda Haberman. It will feature new scenes, additional numbers by the world-famous Rockettes, new costumes, enhanced use of the giant LED screen introduced last year, and on-stage fireworks. Such longtime favorites as "The Living Nativity" will also continue to be part of the show, which is being deemed a "celebration" by Radio City.
