- Season 3 will have a Thanksgiving episode plus a late Christmas episode.
- “We have a Christmas show, which is actually set a couple weeks ahead of Christmas,” executive producer Christopher Lloyd tells TVGuide.com exclusively. “The family starts going over their various family plans — Mitch and Cam are going back to see his family, Jay and Gloria are heading out of town. They’ve all been under the assumption that there must be some day where they all overlap to celebrate Christmas, and they realize that day is today.” Because their faux-holiday is only a matter of hours away, they send various pairs out to gather what they need. “It’s pairings that we haven’t seen very often before,” Lloyd says. “For example, we have Gloria and Luke off together to get the Christmas tree. We have Phil and Manny off to procure presents. We have Jay and Cam off together. It becomes a little bit of an examination of the family you’re born with and the family you inherit, as depicted in these unusual pairings of characters.” Source
