  1. Terrible lineup. No Christmas classic specials just junk and the same movies. You used to do an awesome job but now nothing but garbage and the same repeated movies. Maybe it was the channel name change that did it. Whatever it was was a horrible decision. Severely disappointed this year!

  2. While I consider myself and my family conservative, I realize there are lots of different family types and other ways of living beside what we consider normal. However, with a name like ABC family, it should be expected that families with children shouldn’t have to censor their children from the commercials on this channel. Commercials that are mostly advertisements of what you show on this network. While watching a family movie, we had to turn down the volume as parades of commercials came across talking about teenage promiscuity, violence, kissing boys and other “normal” teenage activities. This is why we no longer have cable television.

    1. I Agree with that a 1,000 % Percent and NOT Leave Out The First Rankin Bass Special Presentations of 1964’s Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer 1968’s Frosty The Snowman,The First Christmas,The Adventures of Santa Claus,1980 Pinocchio’s Christmas, & The Leprechaun’s First Christmas Gold of 1981.

    1. What happened to the classics like Santa baby or snow globe or prancer or the snow movies? I miss those movies more than ever & they never play them at Christmas anymore!

  3. I am so upset by this years line up. It’s the same movie every night and there are so many good ones. One of the reasons I keep cable is for the Christmas movies and this makes me want to cancel.

  4. I look forward to 25 days of Christmas. But can you tell me why there is all repeats. I’m so sick of turning it on each day only to find the same movies as yesterday. With all the Christmas movies out there, you feel the need to play the same ones? How many times do we have to watch Elf, Lampoons Christmas vacation, The Santa Claus and even Polar Express? You guys need to look into other Christmas movies and play them too. Also space them out more. Not sure who’s in charge of organizing this, but they need someone else.

    1. I completely agree, I am actually writing an editorial piece for my high school newspaper and was wondering if I could use some of your quotes in my piece. I would give you credit to the quote and when the article is published I could attach the link, so you could read it. It would be greatly appreciated.

      Merry Christmas!

    1. I want to see more traditional Christmas cartoons. Like the animated Grinch that sole Christmas. Frosty the snowman. The year without a santa Claus. Rudolph’s shiny new year. This Christmas line up is terrible. I,m not watching this Network.

  5. I usually love and can’t wait til 25 days countdown to christmas. But this year not so much! No real classics and too many repeats! I also enjoy the romance ones like 12 Dates of Christmas! Mistle-tones! The ones that you can not buy! Its a bumme this year. Hopefully next year will be better!!!

  7. This is horrible, what are you repeating movies everyday??? Where is holiday in handcuffs more than one, snow globe, Santa clause 2, and others….

    1. I Think Your Channel Can Do a Whole Lot Better Than What You’re Giving the Viewers at Home as far as the Christmas Lineup for 2017 . How about Re Adding More Rankin Bass Specials Like The First Christmas,The Adventures of Santa Claus, and The Leprechaun’s First Christmas Gold ?!?.

  8. This lineup is horrible.
    Bring the “true” classics back, Rudolph, Frosty, Charlie Brown, Grin cheese during the normal evening viewing hours.

      1. The lineup is very disappointing this year it’s not a true Christmas without all the shows that you’re not showing won’t be watching free form

      2. What about good older movies? The Christmas List, Holiday Inn, Christmas In My Hometown. How many times can you see Elf before wanting to pitch the tv out the window.
        This year way too much repeating of same movies over and over. Shame on you.

  9. The Christmas List with Mimi Rogers and Stella Stevens is one we look for every year and haven’t seen in several…what are you waiting for? How many times can people watch Elf in one year???

  10. Yes we need more old classic movies Miracle on 24th strert, Its a wonderful life, Home Alone, A Charlie Brown Christmas, White Christmas, all the Rudolph movies, Frosty the Snowman and have the children shows come on while they are home and not 1,2,3am in the morning. Come on REALLY

  11. Super bummed you guys are not playing Christmas in Boston and most of your ABC Family Christmas classics! Instead just a handful of rotating Christmas movies you can watch on any channel or that most people already own. Hope you guys listen to your viewers and bring back the classic ABC Family Christmas movies as well as making new ones like you used to do.

  12. I agree Rhonda! My wife is so sad It’s not going to be o this year. Well looks like we’re not watching the freeform station or shopping their advertisers. You re lose freeform. But I do know all the words from elf

  13. Most of us have a little thing called a remote…if you can find it….and it will allow you to spend your time finding shows on other channels. Most of the complainers and whiners on here are asking for shows that have never been on this network, just look the last 6 years schedules are archived here. Use your remote or your dvr to record Rudolph, Charlie Brown, Home Alone, Santa Clause 2 and the others on one of the other 300 channels most of us have!

      1. l completely agree that the old classics from the 1960’s, 70’s, and 80’s should still be played at times that people can actually watch them! l can’t exactly watch The Year Without A Santa Claus at 2:30am when l have work the next day!! No more repeats of the same three movies every night! Bring back the classic movies!

  14. How many times are you showing Eloise at Christmas. Why not show some of the older movies, undercover Christmas, Secret Santa with Jennie Garth is a great movie. I see the Mistletones only twice early in the morning. That was new a couple years ago and a favorite of mine. Hope it will continue to air every year. Also these older movies can’t even be purchased.

    1. Please do better next year. There are enough movies that you need not show the same ones over and over. Go back into the vault.

  15. Where are the home alone movies they are a great christmas show plus the peanut shows all the charlie Brown christmas cartoons should be a must

  16. Where is “Three Days” with Kristin Davis & Reed Diamond? It is such a good movie. Can’t you play it at least once. I see your playing “Elf” about 20 times………… can we have one “Three Days”

    1. I agree Rhonda! My wife is so sad It’s not going to be o this year. Well looks like we’re not watching the freeform station or shopping their advertisers. You re lose freeform. But I do know all the words from elf

    1. they play the classics way too early it might just be me but my family and i watch the classics all Christmas eve like It’s a wonderful life and the aforementioned polar express dont let this comment disrupt your plans

  17. Where is rudolph and the island of misfit,toys you air it every year Arthur Christmas is stupid and dumb movie get rid of it and dont air that movie again and let me do ur lineup next year

  18. I’m missing the peanuts gang! Charlie Brown and his sad little tree, Snoopy and Linus the theologian. Where are the peanuts classics?!

  19. I would like to see Ebbie, A Holiday To Remember (Connie Selleca, Randy Travis), Christmas In My Hometown (Melissa Gilbert, Tim Matheson), Smokey Mountain Christmas (Dolly Parton, Lee Majors)……..some of the movies made during these times. There were a bunch of good ones but nobody has shown them for years now.

      1. Yes, The Christmas List is a sweet movie. Never released on DVD. Why doesn’t ABC Family convert it to HD and offer it as a pay per view. There is a large cult following.

  20. I’m with Tina. Where are all the great ABC family movies. All the movies she mentioned plus The Christmas List with Mimi Rogers isn’t on the line up either. Those movies made the 25 Days of Christmas.

    A fix of the old with new would have definitely showcased the spirit of Christmas plus be more appealing to multiple age groups for ratings.

  21. What happened to all the good abc family christmas movies like Snowglobe, Christmas Cupid, 12 dates of Christmas, picking up & Dropping Off, Christmas Do-Over, & etc.! I mean maybe if they played some of these great Christmas Flics then they wudnt have to repeat all of the other ones over & over & over again!! Come on Freeform I National Lampoons just as much as the next guy but almost every other night & day is just too much!!

    1. It Appears Since Freeform Took Over ABC Family They haven’t Not Only Broadcast Rankin Bass’s Pinocchio’s Christmas, But also The First Christmas,The Adventures of Santa Claus,& The Leprechaun’s First Christmas Gold that was Told and Sung by Art Carney…

      1. That would be great! I remember when one Saturday every season was a Rankin Bass marathon. They haven’t done that in at least a few years unfortunately.

        1. Agreed – it seems all the Classic Rankin Bass shows – the ones being aired at all – have been scheduled for the late at night, very early morning, or the middle of the school or work day.

          Really disappointing.

          For the most part – this schedule could be renamed The 25 Days of Repetitive Crap. It would be a more apt description.
