Twitter Christmas Party Schedule 2014

Thanks for your feedback about the upcoming Christmas TV listings.  Here's my schedule for the live Twitter Christmas party:

--Tuesday, Dec. 9th, 8pm(ET) for the CBS broadcast of RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER.  Add #Rudolph to your tweets so we can all stay connected.  (If CBS suggests another hashtag on screen during the program, we'll use their suggestion, okay?)

--Wednesday, Dec. 10th, 9:30pm(ET) for the ABC sitcom BLACKISH.  This is the first broadcast of the new series' holiday episode--so we should have some spontaneous fun with that one.  We'll use #blackishABC--unless ABC suggests another hashtag on-screen.

--Wednesday, Dec. 17th, 8pm(ET) on AMC for the classic holiday movie WHITE CHRISTMAS.  This musical with Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, and Rosemary Clooney turns 6o years old this year.  This will be fun.  We'll use #whitechristmas--unless AMC suggests another on-screen hashtag.

--Thursday, Dec. 18th, 8pm(ET) on AMC for the 1947 movie MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET.  Another classic Hollywood movie with the Christmas spirit.  We'll use #KrisKringle unless AMC suggests another on-screen hashtag, okay?

--Tuesday, Dec. 23rd, 10pm(ET) on MeTV for the 1978 Christmas episode of LAVERNE & SHIRLEY, and at 10:30pm(ET) for the 1974 Christmas episode of HAPPY DAYS.  We'll use #metvxmas to stay in touch.

I hope you'll be able to join me for at least one of these programs so we can enjoy watching Christmas on TV together.  If you are going to live tweet any other Christmas TV programs, please invite me and my readers below in the comments.  Maybe we can join in too.  As always, I'll remind everyone of the schedule on the facebook page Christmas TV History and on twitter: @TistheSeasonTV


  1. I hope I can be there for all but will do my best. Should be good fun! Thanks for organizing things, Joanna.

    1. My pleasure, Joe. You're welcome to join me for one, some, or all of the programs. And thanks for joining the discussion during Rudolph--that was a fun one!

    2. Yes, Rudolph is a classic. Had to just follow along on twitter, since we are saving it to watch with our kids when my daughter gets home from college next week! Black-ish tonight, hoping, again, to be there!

  2. Drat, I don't get any of the channels for the remaining shows. Oh well, I was happy to have gotten to participate in one at least!
