POParitaville Favorite Christmas Episodes: 'Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip'

A couple of weeks ago we brought to you the pinnacle of Christmas specials: 'A Charlie Brown Christmas'. And in that piece we mentioned other favorite holiday episodes of TV shows. Well, perhaps there were some that you didn't see. Or perhaps there are some that you want to see over again. So over the next few days we'll bring to you some of the best Christmas TV episodes (of those that we are able to imbed on our site). We start this off with a show that I feel left the air way too early, 'Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip'. There will be more later on about why this show should have stayed on the air, but in the meantime this is the first pick. Why? Well much of it comes down to what leads to one of the best and most tear-jerking jazz numbers ever to be on television. If you cannot get through O' Holy Night at the end of the episode without tearing up a little or having your heart flutter a little, well then you are something that would be funny to name if I could think of something more humorous than the devil or Dick Cheney.
