Merry Christmas from SitcomsOnline; ABC.com's Video Player Adds Two New Shows and Full Season to Date of Hit Shows

We don't take even Christmas off! Merry Christmas to everyone from all of us here at SitcomsOnline! We thank you for taking time today and every other day to spend a few minutes of each day with us. Spend some time with your families watching the marathons today, that include TV Land's Merry-thon (holiday episodes of Happy Days, Brady Bunch, What's Happening!!, All in the Family, 227, Benson, Three's Company, and so many more), BET's In Living Color marathon, and G4's Arrested Development marathon. Or try the classic movies like A Christmas Story on TBS and Miracle on 34th Street on AMC & your local channel. Not in the mood for any of that, try the annual Walt Disney World Christmas Parade on ABC.

Disney-ABC Television Group announced late last week that it is giving viewers a Christmas gift that keeps on giving, making available all episodes to date on the ABC.com video player of this season's Brothers & Sisters, Desperate Housewives, Grey's Anatomy, Ugly Betty and What About Brian from Touchstone Television beginning TODAY, Christmas Day (December 25). Since formally relaunching the video player in September, a staggering thirty million episodes have been started on ABC.com.
The episodes will remain on the player until their first new episode in January at which time the player will revert to carrying the new episode and the most recent three airings for a total of the latest four episodes. This is the first time Brothers & Sisters and What About Brian will be available on the player and they will become part of the regular offerings. Woohoo!
In addition, also beginning TODAY, the first act (it is hilarious!) and music video (also hilarious!) of the new sitcom The Knights of Prosperity will be available. The series will be added to the player following its premiere on January 3. Believe in the Knights and join them! Got any cookies? Look for our review of the series next week!

Merry Christmas!
