The real question is: will the viewers keep coming back or, will they find something new and festive to watch? Stay tuned.
The Great Christmas Light Fight follows judges Carter Oosterhouse and Taniya Nayak as they assess the creativity and decorating skills of everyday people (albeit ones with an abundance of holiday cheer). Over the course of six episodes, the duo considers those homes with occupants who take yuletide adornment to a whole new level. In the end, the winners are awarded a cash prize and the coveted “Light Fight” trophy.
