Animated Peanuts

When it’s Charlie Brown versus Charlie Brown, everybody wins!

I’m looking at the TV ratings for Thursday, when animated Peanuts specials were on two networks at the same time (the A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving/The Mayflower Voyages hour running 8-9 on ABC, while Fox ran Happiness is a Warm Blanket 8:30-9:30). None of them won their time slot. The ABC …

The annual holiday buying post

The holidays are approaching. Well, there are always holidays approaching, but I don’t mean National Pancake Month or Gorilla Suit Day.
