Ladies and Gentlemen, the City of New Orleans

5 Dec

God bless the Interwebs.

I discovered this week that on Hulu.com you can watch the Studio 60 “Christmas Show” episode from 2006. For my money, this was one of the best holiday-themed episodes of any show of all time — and definitely one of the finest hours of this short-lived TV series.

The best part of the episode was the closing four minutes when Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews and the New Orleans All-Stars performed a New Orleans–style jazz rendition of “Oh Holy Night.” The track made it on to that year’s edition of A Very Marty Christmas, of course, and my best-of compilation last year.

Now you can relive that scene and the entire episode over at Hulu.com.

Enjoy, and happy holidays.
