First Reality-Competition Program of its Kind is Produced by FremantleMedia North America

"Extreme Makeover: Home Edition's" Michael Moloney & Sabrina Soto to Judge

"The Great Christmas Light Fight" is a new competition series in which 20 families from across America will decorate their homes to the extreme for Christmas - in ways that would certainly make even Clark Griswold envious - with a total of $250,000 in prizing ($50,000 won each week). "The Great Christmas Light Fight" will air on MONDAYS, DECEMBER 9 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET/PT), DECEMBER 16 (9:00-11:00 p.m., ET/PT) and DECEMBER 23 (9:00-11:00 p.m., ET/PT) with back-to-back episodes on those two nights. Michael Moloney and Sabrina Soto (both from "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition") will serve as judges for the series.

In the first Christmas lights competition of its kind for television, 4 families will compete each week to transform their homes for the holidays.
