Carson Kressley ('How To Look Good Naked') and Melissa Peterman ('Reba') to Host Lifetime Television's Annual Holiday Movie Extravaganza, 'Fa La La La Lifetime'

25 Holiday-Themed Movies, Including Five U.S. Television Premieres, will Air Every Night from December 1 through December 25

NEW YORK, Nov. 5 -- Carson Kressley, host of Lifetime Television's upcoming new reality series "How to Look Good Naked," premiering January 4, and Melissa Peterman, co-star of "Reba," will be both naughty and nice when they serve as special on-air hosts for Lifetime's annual holiday movie extravaganza, "Fa La La La Lifetime." The festival features 25 holiday- themed movies -- highlighted by five U.S. Television premieres -- airing every night at 9PM (ET/PT), beginning Saturday, December 1, and running through Christmas Day, December 25.

With their incomparable humorous perspectives, Kressley and Peterman provide tips for surviving the holiday season and all those maddening little things that drive a person to drink come New Year's Eve, such as how to jazz up a holiday party -- when you don't know anyone. Or what gift can you get for that special person in your life -- which they won't return the day after Christmas? And how to decorate the perfect Christmas tree -- when you really have no idea what you're doing!

Kicking off with a cavalcade of movies on Thanksgiving including Julia Roberts in "Mystic Pizza" and Sandra Bullock in "Miss Congeniality," Lifetime's holiday celebration closes out the year with the "Top 12 Movies of 2007," airing throughout the weekend of December 29-30.

The "Fa La La La Lifetime" U.S. Television premieres schedule is as follows (The complete schedule and features on each of the holiday movies will be on LifetimeTV.com.):

"Holiday Switch" -- Saturday, December 1, at 9PM (ET/PT) -- Nicole Eggert ("Gilmore Girls") stars as a struggling housewife who wonders if she married the wrong man.

"Lost Holiday: The Jim and Suzanne Shemwell Story" -- Saturday, December 8, at 9PM (ET/PT) -- Inspired by a true story, Jami Gertz ("Still Standing") and Dylan Walsh ("Nip/Tuck") portray an estranged couple caught in a snowstorm.

"An Accidental Christmas" - Sunday, December 9, at 9PM (ET/PT) -- Cynthia Gibb ("A Crime of Passion") stars in the story of a couple, separated after 15 years of marriage, who are manipulated by their children into spending Christmas vacation together.
