The Holiday Episode Airs at a Special Day and Time During the Network's Annual "Countdown to 25 Days of Christmas" Programming Event
Burbank, CA (October 20, 2015) - Tidings of good cheer are overflowing on an all-new Christmas episode of "Young & Hungry," airing on a special date and time, Tuesday, November 24th at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. ABC Family is becoming Freeform in January 2016.
In "Young & Christmas," Gabi and Sofia aren't able to be with their families this holiday season, so they decide to volunteer at a local homeless shelter on Christmas Eve. Yolanda is missing her kids and decides to boycott the holiday, at least until Gabi encourages her to reach out to her estranged sister, Jolanda (Jackee Harry). As soon as the siblings reunite at Josh's loft, however, old grievances are aired, and the family get-together quickly goes from bad to worse. But when Gabi discovers Jolanda is keeping a big secret from Yolanda, will the sisters finally make amends, or is more trouble on the horizon? Elsewhere, Josh goes out of his way to cheer up a miserable Elliot, who is missing Alan, while Sofia wrestles with her conscience when a department store clerk (Mindy Sterling) makes an error in her favor.
Launch to date, "Young & Hungry" is ABC Family's # comedy of all time in Becomers 12-34 and Women 18-34 and wins its cable time period across the key target demographics. The series and cast have been nominated for five Teen Choice Awards since its premiere in the summer of 2014.
