Red and Rover (12/11/08)


Sometimes I look at the TV listings for December and get discouraged by the volume of Christmas specials that get shown year after year. But then I catch a glimpse of The Grinch Who Stole Christmas or A Charlie Brown Christmas and realize that a handful of specials truly deserve to be called classics. It’s difficult to craft a holiday show that will stand the test of time. This year’s entry, A Colbert Christmas, was interesting, but I doubt future generations will be intersted in musical numbers from John Legend or Toby Keith (or Stephen Colbert, for that matter). So the next time the Grinch gets scheduled in primetime, I’ll try not to be grumpy about it.
