What’s Hot on TV Friday and Saturday – Come Dance with Me

I apologize for the lateness of the list. UVerse has not been my friend this week. At any rate, there isn't a whole lot of Christmas programming on for Saturday, other than the weekend Hallmark movies. Tonight, Andrew McCarthy stars in Come Dance with Me, but I'm too stuck on St. Elmo's Fire and can only see him with Ally Sheedy. Catch up with your favorite shows you may have missed at TV-Links.
