The National Dog Show

NBC | 12:00 pm

Actor John O'Hurley and expert analyst David Frei return to co-host this holiday special, which has proven to be catnip (pardon the expression) for family viewers over the 20 years NBC has carried it. NBC correspondent Mary Carillo will report from backstage and inside the show ring. In the toy group, a new breed called the Biewer Terrier will be introduced to the national audience in this year's competition, bringing the total recognized breeds to 209. Last year, a graceful Scottish Deerhound named Claire took home the Best in Show title.
