No surprises or risky bets. Television shoots on Christmas Eve for the contents of a lifetime, programs that the audience continues to like year after year. On this December 24, the channels repeat with humor (‘Telepassion’, ‘How we laugh’), music (Raphael, Morat) and also the traditional compilations that condense the highlights of the last twelve months into one night.
The 1. The presenters get together to give the cante
After the traditional Christmas message from Felipe VI, the first TVE channel is committed to ‘Se armó en Telepasión’, a musical special that brings together the faces of the public channel in a theater. Ana Obregón and Mario Vaquerizo will be the masters of ceremonies for this classic which, on this occasion, has been filmed in Benidorm, Barcelona and Córdoba.
At 10:10 p.m., an essential date for December 24 returns to La 1: Raphael. The artist will perform his greatest hits with singers such as Pablo López, Mónica Naranjo, Nathy Peluso or Ana Mena.
Take over (11:20 p.m.) the Colombian band Morat, with a Christmas special in which they share the stage with Juanes, Manuel Carrasco, Vanesa Martín or Aitana, among others. Christmas Eve closes with the multifaceted Santiago Segura, who gives voice to the karaoke special ‘Viaje al centro de la tele’. In addition, in the afternoon (6:50 p.m.), ‘Cine de Barrio’ broadcasts the classic ‘Plácido’, by Luis García Berlanga.
The 2. The usual comedians
At 10:00 p.m., ‘How we laugh’, directed by Daniel Villasantewill dress up to say goodbye to his season and celebrate Christmas Eve with ‘Los rankings’, a special that classifies moments of humor from the RTVE Documentary Fund to choose the funniest moment in the history of television.
The program will dive into the issues of Tuesday and Thirteen, Tip and Coll, Cruz and Raya, among others. In the afternoon, ‘Saber y Ganar’ will not miss its daily appointment with a special Christmas programme.
Antenna 3. The best of the year
The chain returns to bet on the same content as last Christmas Eve. After Felipe VI’s Christmas message, Antena 3 broadcasts ‘The best of each house‘, a selection of the “most fun, shocking and surprising” images that have been offered throughout the year in all the programs on the Atresmedia channels.
And then ‘Christmas Eve with ‘Your face sounds familiar to me”, reviews the best performances in the history of the program that have been broadcast during the ten years of the contest.
