The Christmas in Rockefeller Center special on NBC this Wednesday, December 2, just went from a pretty good lineup to a must-see event. At least for me, that is. Today, NBC rounded out the lineup for the star-studded musical extravaganza with the addition of Jo Dee Messina, Rod Stewart and Rob Thomas. Most importantly, though, the Muppets will be there!

And you thought it was just to light up that giant tree. These artists will be joining the likes of Shakira, Aretha Franklin, Michael Buble and Alicia Keys in the special hosted by Jane Krakowski (30 Rock) and Zachary Levi (Chuck). Could we be creeping closer and closer to a revival of The Muppet Show? Krakowski has worked with them before, and while it's not clear in what capacity they'll be involved, the Muppets work best when interacting with real live celebrities and the real world in general.

I know, it's a little premature to call this a step toward why my own addled fancies would like to see. Perhaps NBC could consider The Muppet Show in place of The Jay Leno Show. I'd watch five nights a week of the Muppets with various guests. Certainly more than I can watch The Tonight Show Light.

Here's NBC's take on the special:
Jo Dee Messina, Rod Stewart, Rob Thomas, Stefania Fernandez (Miss Universe), Stormi Bree Henley (Miss Teen USA), and The Muppets will join NBC's star-studded lineup for the 12th annual "Christmas in Rockefeller Center" special on Wednesday, December 2 (8pm-9pmET). This dazzling display of musical talent and the lighting of the world's most famous Christmas tree during the "Christmas in Rockefeller Center" telecast will be co-hosted by NBC stars Jane Krakowski ("30 Rock") and Zachary Levi ("Chuck") and broadcast in high definition. This holiday tree lighting celebration will also feature Michael Bubl, Aretha Franklin, Jose Feliciano, Alicia Keys, Barry Manilow, The Roots, Shakira, and The Radio City Rockettes performing a mix of current hits and holiday classics from beautifully ornamented stages around Rockefeller Center in New York City.
Christmas in Rockefeller Center is a special airing Wednesday, December 2 at 8 PM ET on NBC.
