Jeffrey R. Staab/CBS

As the end of 2016 approaches, how can we best understand the year that was? And what can we expect from 2017? Tune into Face the Nation this Christmas Sunday and we’ll try to figure it out.

We’ll sit down with “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert and get his thoughts on politics, society, and more. What did he make of the 2016 election results? What are he and his show looking forward to in the new year?

And in an annual Face the Nation tradition, we’ll bring together CBS News correspondents for a panel discussion looking ahead to the new year. We’ll be joined by CBS News Chief White House Correspondent Major Garrett, CBS News Congressional Correspondent Nancy Cordes, CBS News Foreign Affairs Correspondent Margaret Brennan, CBS News Chief Legal Correspondent Jan Crawford, CBS News Homeland Security Correspondent Jeff Pegues, and CBS News National Security Correspondent David Martin.

It’s going to be an exciting broadcast, so tune in or set your DVRs this Christmas Day! Check your local listings for air times.
