Watch Cloris Leachman Crash Christmas On 'Kirstie'

Two TV legends will have a face-off when Cloris Leachman visits Kirstie Alley's new sitcom "Kirstie" this week on TV Land.

Even though it's only premiered earlier this month, "Kirstie" has already become a go-to destination for sitcom stars. Aside from Alley herself, the cast includes Rhea Perlman ("Cheers") and Michael Richards ("Seinfeld") but the series has already booked guest stars such as George Wendt ("Cheers"), John Travolta and now Cloris Leachman.

Leachman will guest as Maddie's (Kirstie Alley) mother who has a ... strained relationship with her daughter. Maddie is celebrating Christmas with her son she recently reunited with, and when Leachman crashes the party Maddie remembers what the holidays are really about: fighting with your family and drinking.

Will Maddie and her mother reconcile in time to enjoy the holidays?

Check out Leachman in an exclusive interview below, and watch a preview of the episode above, which airs this Wed, Dec. 18 at 10 p.m. EST on TV Land.
