Tom Hanks To Host Biden/Harris Inaugural TV Particular On Jan. 20 – .
A man loved by almost everyone in today’s bitterly divided America will lead the celebration of the nation’s next president and vice president of history.
Tom Hanks will host the Primetime Celebrating America Special, which will culminate in the inauguration of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris on January 20th.
In addition to appearances by the 46th POTUS and 49th VPOTUS, the 90-minute show produced by Ricky Kirshner will also include appearances by Justin Timberlake, Demi Lovato, Ant Clemons and longtime Democrat supporter Jon Bon Jovi. More acts and big names are expected to be announced in the next few days.
As was rumored last week, Celebrating America will air on multiple networks next week.

As of 8:30 PM ET, the special for the unit’s destination, I hear, will be broadcast on ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, and CNN. The show will also be featured on Amazon Prime Video, Microsoft Bing, Fox’s NewsNOW, AT&T DIRECTV, and U-verse, as well as on the Presidential Inaugural Committee’s social media feeds.
In conjunction with Covid-19 security protocols and concerns about new threats from the armed forces that besieged and invaded Congress on Jan. 6, Biden and Harris are still scheduled to swear on the steps of the Capitol on the 20th at 12:00 p.m. . With the Mayor of DC and others encouraging Americans not to travel to an increasingly closely guarded Washington, the inauguration will be largely virtual – much like the way the Democratic National Convention was successful last summer.
“This inauguration provides a unique opportunity to showcase the resilience and spirit of America United,” said Tony Allen, CEO of PIC, in a statement today. “We have seen countless heroes take to the front lines over the past year and serve their fellow Americans. That’s why we tell their stories, spread their collective light and celebrate the best of our country and its people with this prime-time program.” The President of Delaware State University added.
“Our first priority is safety. While many of us are watching from home safely, we are creating real moments of connection that highlight a new inclusive American era of leadership that works for and represents all Americans,” concluded Allen.
All of the crowd pullers, Timberlake, Lovato, Clemons, and the New Jersey rocker have played their fair share of political events over the years. Two-time Oscar winner and Presidential Medal of Freedom winner, Hanks attended the We Are One event, which commemorated Barack Obama’s entry into the White House in January 2009. The Toy Story and Greyhound star, who appeared in virtual fundraisers with the ex-Veep during the campaign against Donald Trump, put his own money on the table and also contributed to Biden.
In the run-up to the ceremony next Wednesday, the Biden team is bringing some fictional DC heavyweights for a fundraiser on January 15th. Unveiled today, titled “Conversations with Actors from the West Wing, Scandal and Designated Survivor” titled “Designated Survivor Regular” and ex-Obama employee Kal Penn as ringmaster. Scandal President Mellie Grant herself, Bellamy Young, is accompanied by Bartlet administrative veterinarians Richard Schiff, Bradley Whitford, Dulé Hill and Janel Moloney.
With the theme of “America United” for the inauguration of Biden and Harris, events are also planned for MLK Day on January 18th and a nationwide Covid-19 memorial for lost lives on January 19th. Previously announced, Biden and Harris will take part in a wreath-laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery on January 20th with former Presidents Obama, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton, as well as former First Ladies in attendance.
If you are concerned that more MAGA idiots violently disrupt the ceremony on the 20th, the National Guard and other forces will be sidelined in full, the authorities promise.
