AmericanLife Network Celebates Christmas with Classics like Mr. Belvedere; Animated Classics on Jaroo.com

This December every weekday in the 5pm hour on AmericanLife TV they will have classic Christmas episodes of many classics all month long! The holiday fun begins Monday, November 30 and lasts every weekday through Thursday, December 24 all in the 5pm hour. Classics in order of airing are Lou Grant, The Big Valley, WKRP In Cincinnat, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, The Bob Newhart Show, Newhart, Remington Steele, Trapper John M.D., Ghost and Mrs. Muir, and Mr. Belvedere! Yes, Mr. Belvedere makes an appearance on TV for the first time in years! Mark your china...err calendars for Thursday, December 17 at 5pm & 5:30pm for all two Christmas Mr. Belvedere episodes! They originally didn't have Mr. Belvedere and Ghost and Mrs. Muir on the holiday schedule, as they just added it...but it is a good thing they did! They originally had a Phyllis Christmas episode on the schedule, but just removed it. Hopefully they change their mind and air it. Most of these series are from 20th Century Fox, so I wish they would air some holiday episodes of other series as well from their library. Hooperman starring John Ritter would be great to see! I know Small Wonder didn't have a Christmas episode, but anything to see that show again!
Elsewhere on ALN December 2009, there are no regular schedule changes...but we have many holiday specials other than the 5pm weekday hour. Among the specials are Christmas Music Specials, Skating Specials, and movies such as New Adventures Of Heidi, Christmas Without Snow, Christmas at Cadillac Jack's and Love's Pure Light.
View episode info for the ALN Holiday episodes for the month! If there are any changes, we'll let you know!
