Here’s the information from the SyFy press release:
SYFY SETS PREMIERE DATE FOR HOLIDAY-THEMED
EPISODES OF EUREKA AND WAREHOUSE 13
Special Episodes Will Air Back-to-Back on Tuesday December 7th
With Eureka at 9 pm ET/PT and Warehouse 13 at 10 pm ET/PT
New York, New York – October 11, 2010 – On December 7th, 2010, Syfy fans will no longer have to imagine what the holidays would be like in their favorite quaint town of geniuses or government hideaway. Two of Syfy’s most popular original scripted series, Eureka and Warehouse 13, will debut special stand-alone holiday episodes, with Eureka airing at 9 pm ET/PT and Warehouse 13 airing at 10 pm ET/PT.
On Eureka, as the Global Dynamics employees celebrate the season at the company
holiday party, staff member Dr. Noah Drummer (Chris Parnell) nearly absconds with a volatile experiment. The halls get seriously decked when Dr. Drummer’s unstable hydrogen crystal starts to grow at a frightening rate. Carter (Colin Ferguson) and Henry (Joe Morton) attempt to deal with the potentially explosive crystal, but before long the true scope of the problem is revealed, and it will take more than tinsel and carolers to save Christmas and Eureka. Former series regular Matt Frewer also returns as Taggert.
In this “long lost holiday episode” of Warehouse 13, as the Warehouse team prepares to celebrate the holidays in snowy South Dakota, Pete (Eddie McClintock) and Myka (Joanne Kelly) are called upon to hunt down a malevolent Santa Claus. Meanwhile, in time for Hanukkah, Artie and his estranged father, Isadore Weisfelt reunite after 30 years. Award-winning actor Judd Hirsch returns to television guest starring as Artie’s father. Paul Blackthorne also guest stars as a harried work-a-holic who becomes terrorized by a strange series of robberies committed by a thief dressed as “jolly old Saint Nick!”
