Joanna on TV: Set Your DVRs

Well, the holiday specials have already begun to air on TV like they do every year at this time. The Hallmark Channel started televising their holiday movies last weekend and ABC Family Channel begins their countdown to the 25 Days of Christmas programming this weekend. The Macy's Thanksgiving day Parade is next Thursday and the flood of old and new programming will be unleashed.

Add to that two upcoming new specials that will include your favorite Christmas TV expert (Don't shrug your shoulders! I'm talking about myself, Joanna Wilson). As you may already know, I was asked to participate in two TV specials adding commentary about Christmas TV episodes, specials and movies. Look for me:

on the History Channel special The Real Story of Christmas scheduled to air Nov. 30th at 8pm

and TV Guide Network's 25 Most Hilarious Holiday Moments scheduled to air Dec. 5th at 8pm

I expect these programs to be repeated before Dec. 25th but check your listings to be sure. Thanks to both production companies for asking me to participate: Workaholic Productions and Atlas Media Corp. respectively. I'm sure everyone is looking forward to seeing these new holiday TV specials as well as my contributions.


  1. Hi Joanna,

    What time are you going to be at Square Records on Saturday? Hopefully I can stop by.

  2. Hi Erick,

    I'll be there from 2-4 pm signing copies of "The Christmas TV Companion." It would be great to finally meet.

  3. I tried to comment the other day but I think it disappeared,but I just wanted to say it was great to meet you at Chop Suey last week. Can't put down the book,it's help me remember long forgotten specials like 'Christmas Is'. And as Melanie said,thanks for the inspiration. Looking forward to your appearance on the History Channel!

  4. Thanks Jason! I was reading the book you gave me today. Thanks again for passing that on.
