"Christmas in Rockefeller Center" will air on Wednesday, December 3 (8-9 p.m. ET).

Don't know who's scheduled. The news blurb only says:

"Christmas in Rockefeller Center" is a star-studded, live broadcast from Rockefeller Center in New York City and celebrates the lighting of the world's most famous Christmas tree. The special will include a popular musical lineup celebrating the current hits and favorite holiday music from the world of entertainment.

Love Christmas at Rockefeller Center. I think it was last year that I watched the live feed of the tree being loaded into the square. It was really rather interesting to watch them bringing in the huge tree like that.

wnbc.com has a webcam on during the tree lighting ceremony.

Of course this will not be the actual telecast, but it's live and gives a different perspective of the event.
