FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

In TV Guide Magazine's December 11 Issue (on Newsstands December 7)

TV GUIDE MAGAZINE OFFERS EXCLUSIVE LOOK AT SPECIAL
ELVIS-THEMED HOLIDAY EPISODE OF LAS VEGAS
Josh Duhamel And Molly Sims Grace Four Collectible Covers
Each Cover Affixed With Distinctly Designed Multi-Media CD-ROM
CD-ROM Features Previously Unreleased Version Of Elvis Christmas Song
"It Won't Seem Like Christmas Without You"

December 6, 2006 (New York, NY) — It has been decades since Elvis sang
his last song in Sin City, but in an upcoming episode of the NBC hit
Las Vegas the King is front and center on The Strip and TV Guide
magazine's December 11 issue has all the scoop. This special issue of
the magazine will highlight four covers graced by Las Vegas stars
Molly Sims and Josh Duhamel, each affixed with a distinctly designed
collectible Elvis CD-ROM.

The episode of Las Vegas, entitled "White Christmas," features an
Elvis soundtrack with six classic songs from SONY BMG's new 23-track
release "Elvis Christmas" (in stores now), a definitive
career-spanning collection of holiday songs from Elvis Presley.
According to the show's creator, it is thanks entirely to the music
that he was permitted to move forward with a holiday show at all.
"I've always wanted to do a Christmas show, but I was never allowed to
because they can only repeat the show during the holidays," creator
Gary Scott Thompson tells TV Guide. Adding the Elvis soundtrack
changed all that, he says.

With contributions from Elvis Presley Enterprises and Sony BMG Music
Entertainment, the enhanced CD-ROM—with four different cover designs,
each depicting a different image of Elvis from various stages in his
life and career— will feature a number of multi-media elements
including a previously unreleased version of the Elvis holiday song,
"It Won't Seem Like Christmas Without You" (courtesy of Sony BMG
Strategic Marketing Group); an Elvis photo gallery; a peek at Elvis'
"Blue Christmas" video; an Elvis Christmas e-card; and behind the
scenes footage from the taping of the Las Vegas Elvis-themed episode.

In this special holiday episode of Las Vegas, premiering December 15
at 9:00PM ET/PT, the halls of the Montecito are decked with "The Elvis
Collection" — a fictitious traveling exhibit straight from Graceland.
Presley video footage plays on the giant projection screens that
surround the casino's sports book; his studded jumpsuits are on
display by the poker tables; and his '56 white Cadillac convertible is
parked near the roulette wheels. (Elvis' actual belongings rarely
leave Memphis, so all items in the collection are replicas). It's
supposed to be the most wonderful time of year, but it seems nothing
is going right. Casino honcho Ed Deline (James Caan) is miserably
stuck in a Kris Kringle costume during a 100 degree heat wave;
Delinda's (Sims) first Christmas with Danny (Duhamel) is sidetracked
by a theft, and Mary (Nikki Cox) is caught off guard by some
disturbing news about her haunting past. Vanessa Marcil and James
Lesure also star in the episode, and Cheryl Ladd guest stars.

TV Guide's December 11 issue goes on sale Thursday, December 7. The
collectible CD-ROMs will be available on newsstand editions of the
magazine only.
