Taraji's White Hot Holidays, on FOX
FOX; IMDb (2016); IMDb (2017)

So, I guess in December 2015, Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard (co-stars of Empire) co-hosted a Christmas special called "Taraji and Terrence's White Hot Holidays." I must have been aware of it at the time, but didn't get a chance to watch it, and by the time December 2016 rolled around, when this special aired, I had forgotten the earlier one even existed. But I did get to see this, and I enjoyed it, so I wish I'd seen the first one, too. Anyway, this year Taraji hosted the special by herself, but there were lots of cool guest stars, some great musical performances, and funny holiday-themed sketches. And... I'm afraid I don't know what else to say, since I don't want to spoil any specific details of the show. But it was fun.

There was a third special in 2017, again called "Taraji's White Hot Holidays," which means more guest stars, more songs, and more sketches. It was pretty fun. I think my favorite part was a Hamilton spoof called "Prancerton."
