Christmas in July Marathon: Set Your DVR

Most recent Fan Photo--not only did he make time to write me a blurb last year, but he's sending me Fan Photos in July. Thanks Santa! Send your photo with the book and I'll put it on the blog too. Send photos to: Joanna [at] 1701Press [dot] com.

For viewers looking to watch Christmas programming--I have a new alert. TV One, an upper tier cable network that broadcasts entertainment for African-Americans, is having a 24 hour Christmas in July marathon starting 6 am (EST) Saturday July 24th-25th.

This marathon consists of the holiday episodes from the following sitcoms:

Sanford and Son
Good Times
The Jeffersons
A Different World
Living Single
the PJs
Tracy Morgan Show
All of Us

Check their website for the schedule to locate particular episodes. The Cartoon Network is also scheduling a Christmas in July marathon for Sunday 25th. More details on that later.

I'm very disappointed that Lifetime seems to dropping the ball with a holiday movie marathon. In the past, they've aired 'Fa La la La Lifetime'--a special promotion of their holiday movies in the summer. Perhaps it will still come in August--but they're website is chaotic so it's difficult to anticipate. In past years, the Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movie Network have also scheduled special holiday movies in the summer. This year they are not doing a special promotion, as I mentioned in a past post. That's too bad. They invest a lot of money into original holiday programming but don't look to promote it as much as possible. I know what I'll be watching July 24th and 25th.

  1. I'm so bummed about Lifetime, but I like TV One... It's got some great programming. Thanks for the heads up!
