For your viewing pleasure

Sadly, tonight's line up is nothing to write-home about....

ABC Family (check your local listings)
7:00pm Nestor, the Long-Eared Christmas Donkey
7:30pm The Story of the First Christmas Snow
8:00pm Home Alone 2: Lost in New York

I've never seen any of them, so I can't help you with any witty insight.

Now, tomorrow's line up appeared to be super-fantastic at first glance -- starting at noon time tomorrow, ABC Family is running a 12-hour holiday program marathon YIPPPPEEEE -- but upon a closer review..... it was just a marketing ploy.... I've never even heard some of them, some are really just okay (with 12 hours, I suppose they need to include some "filler") and then there are some that are just not worthwhile. For your reference, I've highlighted the ones Mrs Big Dubya Considers a "can't miss" in RED....

ABC Family Kicks it off at
Noon -- Rudolph & Frosty's Christmas in July (like this one was necessary!)
2:00 -- The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus
3:00 -- The Story of the First Snow
3:30 -- Nestor, the Long-Eared Christmas Donkey
4:00 -- Pinoocchio's Christmas
5:00 -- Jack Frost (a good holiday staple)
6:00 -- Frosty's Winter Wonderland (a good holiday staple)
7:00 -- Rudolph's Shiny New Year
8:00 -- Santa Claus is Coming to Town
9:00 -- A Very Barry Christmas
10:00 -- The Year Without a Santa Claus
11:00 -- The Little Drummer Boy
11:30 -- The Little Drummer Boy Book II (huh?)
12:00 -- The Stingiest Man in Town
1:00 -- Cricket on the Hearth

Hopefully this list was helpful...

Thanks so much for keeping us up-to-date on the Christmas lineups. The Little Drummer Boy is one of my favorites, but it's on way past my bedtime. It's time to convince the husband we need TiVo!
