According to NBC we are now referring to Michael Buble as “The King of Cool”. When did we bestow that title on Mr. Buble? Was there a Mr. Cool pageant in Atlantic City that I missed? Its not so much questioning whether or not Buble is cool, this is his third year hosting a Christmas special after all, but rather the province of his new title. If Buble is “The King of Cool” then what does that make Justin Timberlake?
The NBC synopsis for tonight’s show promises an hour full of stars and holiday cheer.
Michael Bublé returns to NBC with another star-studded holiday Christmas special. The multi-Grammy Award-winning singer is joined by guest stars Mariah Carey and Mary J. Blige, as well as Cookie Monster, on songs including “The Christmas Song,” “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,” “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” and “Let It Snow.” The special comes from Chanci Ventures Inc; Bruce Allen is executive producer and John Pantages is producer with Brad Lachman directing.
The promo for “Michael Buble’s 3rd Annual Christmas Special” is so saccharine that too many viewings of the show can result in cavities and diabetes.
The special is rolling out the big guns with Mariah Carey and Mary J. Blige. Don’t miss tonight when the new “King of Cool” celebrates the coldest of all holidays. This show has something special for fans of big band music, R&B, and Sesame Street.
