It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas with ABC's hit holiday-decorating-competition series "The Great Christmas Light Fight," premiering tonight (8 p.m., EST/PST). Produced by Fremantle Media North America, the popular series returns for a third season with all-new celebrity judges, Carter Oosterhouse (HGTV's "Million Dollar Rooms") and Taniya Nayak (Food Network's "Restaurant Impossible").

"The Great Christmas Light Fight" features families and neighborhoods from across America, decorating their homes to the extreme for Christmas with a total of $300,000 in prizes ($50,000 per episode) up for grabs.

In the first episode (8 p.m.), watch as four families from across the country showcase their spectacular displays of Christmas magic, including the Atkins family's interactive display, a 50-foot "love" sign and plasma-cut hearts honoring breast cancer survivors in Ocala, Florida; the Pelletier family's 500 fireworks synchronized to music in Greenville, South Carolina; the Kuhn family's 500,000 lights and specialty light projectors in St. George, Utah; and the Cadger family's "spinning" trees and light-up globe in Meridian, Idaho.

Tune in to see whom Oosterhouse awards $50,000 and the coveted Christmas Light trophy on the season three premiere of ABC's "The Great Christmas Light Fight."

Then, at 9 p.m., the festivities continue with the second episode, featuring the Phipps family, who incorporate music and original displays, including a 22-foot mega tree made out of PVC and aircraft cables in Livermore, California; the Bartlett family's unique and entirely homemade displays in Ellicott City, Maryland; the Drelick family's Christmas snowflake set 52-feet high in the sky in Harleysville, Pennsylvania, which can be seen half a mile away from the New Jersey turnpike; and the Hunt family, whose 20-foot Santa, 30,000 ice lights, 80,000 single strand bulbs and 10,000 feet of cable make this Ocala family's display not to be missed.

Who will walk away with the $50,000 prize and coveted Christmas Light trophy? Watch judge Nayak take on the task on ABC's "The Great Christmas Light Fight."
