The Katie Couric Show

Katie is in the holiday spirit for this special Christmas Eve episode of "Katie!" It's a fun mix of guests all with a festive twist, including Katie's seasonal fashion and a trip to pick out her Christmas tree. During this show, you'll meet the Hoversten family, and their story will pull at your heartstrings. Jake Hoversten has been in the Marine Corps for 15 years, and is deployed for the fifth time since 2005, leaving behind his wife, Samantha, and two children under the age of two. Samantha shares the difficulties of Jake missing their kids' milestones, and the sadness of being without him during the holidays – but Katie makes sure this is one Christmas they will never forget.       

Also in this show, special holiday performances by the legendary Rod Stewart and also Colbie Caillat, will perform in Katie's studio. Plus, everything you need to know about this year's holiday movies and Katie prepares a last minute Christmas meal with Chef Marcus Samuelsson. Yes! You can still pull off a Christmas meal in the final hours!
