Carrie Underwood to Host Own TV Variety Special

by at . Comments

FOX made Carrie Underwood a star on the fourth season of American Idol. Or at least broadcast it when she made herself a country star on that very program.

How the network is giving Carrie her own two-hour variety special!

The star will host Brad Paisley, Dolly Parton and fellow American Idol winner David Cook on the December 7 show, produced by Simon Fuller and Nigel Lythgoe.

The big Carrie Underwood television broadcast will be tentatively titled Carrie Underwood: An All-Star Holiday Special, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

After selling 10 million albums and winning four Grammys, Underwood will sing her hits and new songs, as well as perform in comedy skits on the show.

Would you watch a Carrie Underwood variety show?

While the Carrie Underwood show is a one-time event, the Reporter says the networks are looking to revive the once-popular (and cheap) variety format.

This is best evidenced by the creation of the Jay Leno Show every night at 10 p.m. on NBC, but also by CBS' John Mayer pilot, which is now in the works.

That will be called The Douchebag Hour. Just kidding. Sort of.
