'Tis the season for a medley of musical streaming specials. First up on HBO Max, Carrie Underwood is performing songs off her latest holiday album, "My Gift" and we'll be joined by John Legend for a special duet of their song "Hallelujah."

Also based around her new album, her 47th mind you, Dolly will sing hymns and classics and share Christmas stories, as if she hasn't done enough for us already. Switching gears just a tad, if you're craving some moody or more nostalgic fare, David FIncher's latest movie, "Mank" has you covered.
- Hello, everyone.
- Make yourself at home, Mr. Mankiewicz, or shall I call you Herman?
- Please, call me Mank.
- Starring Gary Oldman as Herman "Mank" Mankiewicz, the film follows the real tumultuous story behind the making of Citizen Kane, which Mankiewicz co-wrote with Orson Welles. The long gestating project was written by Fincher's father in the 1990s, but only recently came to fruition.
- I removed any distraction, eliminated every excuse, your family, your cronies, liquor. I gave you a second chance.
- And of course, it's not the holiday without some delicious desserts and familiar friends. Combine both, and you have the "Great British Baking Show." For season three of their holiday special, four past contestants return and are joined by the cast of The British sitcom, "Derry Girls."
- What's going on over there?
- Nothing, just a bit of baking.
- Count on cookies, gingerbread houses, and some ominously jiggling jello in this holiday bake off. Come back next week to check out Yahoo's "It List."
