Monday, Dec. 3 at 9 p.m., NBC
It's amazing what a seat on a reality/competition show judging panel will do for your TV profile. Consider Blake Shelton, an award-winning country artist whose spot on NBC's The Voice has landed him his first-ever network special, just in time for the holiday season. Shelton shares the spotlight with Kelly Clarkson, Miranda Lambert and Reba McEntire, and sings a duet with his mom, Dorothy Shackleford.

Included in this special episode are a redesigned holiday classic, a game creator looking to cash in on the shopping frenzy, and a toy maker with a new idea for action figures.
