3x12 Episode 12 - New Years Day Edition (January 01, 0001)


The country's favourite New Year's tradition continues with another year-end special from Ron James. The comedian puts 2011 to bed as only he can, then looks ahead to 2012, sincerely hoping the Mayans were just having a bad day at the temple when they made their famous doomsday prediction. Of course it wouldn't be New Years without Aunt Vivien's annual message to the royal family, and her homespun advice to newlyweds Will and Kate is as cut and dry as Marks and Spencer shortbread; a usually quiet electronics store manager channels General Patton to rally his troops for the battle known as Boxing Day; guests of Canada's greatest detective Mordecai Moncton learn that attending one of his parties can be murder; a top military official is in the hot seat for accidentally shooting down a certain bearded, jolly, red-suited man on Christmas Eve; and Lil Ronnie is staging a covert operation of his own, up way past his bedtime trying to raid the snack table of Ma and Pa's New Year's party; and in a special musical number to close the show, a mall and chain weary Ron pays cranky tribute to the season with fellow survivors of the holiday madness
