HURRICANE SANDY: COMING TOGETHER
NBC, 8:00 p.m. ET
This instant fundraising special, hosted by Matt Lauer and shown live on all of the networks in the NBC Universal universe, isn’t political. This one-hour telethon is for victims of Hurricane Sandy, and features performances by artists who came together within days to offer assistance in helping to raise money for relief efforts. Scheduled artists include Bruce Springsteen and others associated with states hit hard by the mammoth storm, as well as just helpful performers such as Sting and Christina Aguilera. For some of these performers, the issue of waterfront disaster doesn’t just strike close to home – it struck their homes as well. Among the other scheduled performers are Jon Bon Jovi, who has a lavish waterfront estate in New Jersey, and Billy Joel, who has one in the Hamptons in New York. This special, in addition to NBC, is shown simultaneously on Bravo, USA, Syfy, E!, CNBC, MSNBC, Style and G4.
