    Why doesn’t TCM show “It’s a Wonderful Life”?

    • Mrs. Claus says:

      Margo – TCM does not air It’s a Wonderful Life because NBC has a long-term exclusive broadcast contract to show it. Because it’s an exclusive contract, other channels aren’t able to broadcast the film. I am not sure when the NBC contract runs out, but I imagine it won’t be any time soon.

    Disappointed in TCM. No White Christmas, Holiday Inn, or Christmas in Connecticut. What happened to them this year??

    • Sharon says:

      I second that. I too am disappointed in the programming of TCM this Christmas season. It’s a good question — What did happen? Someone is not paying attention to the people who watch TCM. We like the tradional classics like Bishops Wife, Holiday Inn, White Christmas and Christmas in Connecticut.

      • Lori Beth says:

        Hi Sharon, I’m a bit confused as to why White Christmas, and many of the other Christmas classics are not appearing. The Shop Around the Corner, and so many more are not airing. My sons(in their ages of 18-26) are also disappointed. Please give me a glimmer of sunshine and air them. Thank you, Lori Beth

      • Pat says:

        I’m with you Sharon! I am so disappointed in all the tv station programming schedule! Very few of the classics have been played and I for one have missed them! All these new “versions” don;’t have the same quality as the old reliable Christmas movies.
        Shame on you!

    • Shirley says:

      @Athena, AMC is showing White Christmas 10 times btw Dec 13th and Dec 24th. TCM is showing Christmas in Connecticut once on Tuesday, Dec 24th at 8p.

  3. Herbert Laws says:

    I too have long been disappointed re the dearth of Christmas movies on TCM. If it weren’t for Hallmark, there would be few Christmas movies, and the Season would be bleak indeed. Many of the traditional Christmas movies are never shown. “The Gathering,” “A Hobo’s Christmas,” “The Man in the Santa Claus Suit,” “It Came Upon the Midnight Clear,” “The Night They Saved Christmas,” and many more have disappeared from TV. Especially tragic is the disappearance of the old black and white films like “Christmas Eve,” “Beyond Christmas,” and “A Christmas Carol.” I was overjoyed that AMC showed “Christmas Eve” this very morning. And thank God TCM finally showed “A Christmas Carol” (“Scrooge” in the US) last year and has condescended to air it once this year. I think this movie is the heart of Christmastime and without it Christmas is not the same. Alastair Sim, the great British actor, BECOMES Scrooge forever, so wonderful is his performance. I am very disappointed in Robert Osborne, whom I adore, that he dismissed this incomparable movie for so many years.Merry Christmas!

  4. Sandy Bigler says:

    Please let me know when you will air. The farmers daughter, its one of my favorites. Will it be near lorrettas birthday? Thank you s bigler….

  5. Penny says:

    I am looking for a very old movie, which I have seen around Christmas time. All I can remember about it is that A woman which was a Joan of Arch understudy dies and this was in a coal minning town, In which a reporter (ED McMurry?) convincd the churches to ring for so many days constantly. If anyone has anyidea of this show name please let me know.

  6. G. Chambers says:

    So disappointed in the Christmas schedule for TMC.

  7. te kalata says:

    please start showing the real classic movies of the 1940–50

  8. Chris says:

    So disappointed that your Christmas schedule does not include Scrooge with Alastair Sims. Please reconsider showing this version. Thank you.

  9. katie says:

    Is holiday inn coming on any channel? It’s just not Christmas without it!

  10. vicki says:

    No Miracle on 34th Street? Seriously?

  11. Eileen says:

    Soooo disappointed in tcm’s lack of many of my treasured old Christmas favorites.

  12. Therese Nowak says:

    Wondering why “Meet me in St. Louis” isnt being played on either Amc & Tcm. Kinda upset about not being able to watch it.

  13. Tom says:

    It is there any way the schedule can be changed it’s not too late we want to see white Christmas,holiday inn, and shop around the corner, Christmas in Connecticut and so on…….very very very very disappointed and TCM

  14. John says:

    Im very upset about the lack of older Christmas movies this year, Holiday Inn, ect, also why is Emmett Otters Jug Band Christmas not being shown?

  15. Colleen says:

    Amc and TCm ,Why aren’t you showing the Christmas classics, The Christmas Carol, Miracle on 34th Street and so on, my family and I look forward to these shows every year,it’s tradition for us, where is your Christmas spirit? We are very,very,very, very……….disappointed We love the older classic Christmas movies!

  16. Colleen A. says:

    My family and I are very disappointed that you are not showing the classics as Miracle on Street , The Christmas Carol 1938. and so on, these are a tradition for us to watch together! Please consider showing these!

  17. Mrs. Claus says:

    Colleen, A Christmas Carol 1938 will air early tomorrow morning (Dec. 20th 2013) at 1am ET.

  18. Eileen says:

    Your Christmas movie schedule is very disappointing this year. What happened to the Bishop’s Wife and so many old classics?
    Shame on you TCM. You are alienating your good supporters.

  19. Very upset about the lack of Christmas movies from tcm. Your channel is the first one I check about the old movies. There is nothing like the old movies to bring so many memories of our childhood. There is still time, won’t you add them to your schedule? I like the Christmas movies that are about World War II. There are many that involve Christmas in them, too. The war movies are appearing less and less on tcm, too. Please reconsider. Thank-you for your time.

  20. Sherry says:

    We are so so so disappointed with
    the holiday scheduling this year !
    It looks like we will NOT be watching
    TCM this season .
    White Christmas and
    Holiday Inn are two of our families’
    very favorite holiday shows !!
    What were you thinking ?
    If those shows aren’t classics ” ,
    Then I don’t know what is !!

    We are so disappointed that TCM won’t be on the TV now. As of the 20th of October TCM has not been on TV. We have Dish network. Hopefully you can find out why. I know people that use and watch their TV all the time and TCM is a channel watched most of all. TCM is missed a lot. Computers are not a option here. DISH says TCM was taken off because of contract problems. Hope to see TCM back on TV because
    dish is not worth keeping if not.

  22. shelly says:

    what channel does Turner Classic Movies come on

  23. Berta says:

    Is it just dish that dropped TCM? If so, time for a move

    • Mrs. Claus says:

      Hi Berta, yes Dish has dropped TCM for the time being along with a few other channels due to contract disputes. We have Dish too and are really hoping they bring TCM back before the holidays.

  24. Michele says:

    Also disappointed in TMC, bring back the classic Christmas movies, there are families that would like to show these old greats to our grandchildren to pass on the memories and make more! you should be ashamed!

  25. Jean says:

    I would like to know who chooses the film’s each month. They go crazy for horror movies in October for Halloween but skimp on Christmas in December. It would b e prudent for someone to read these comments to know what t h e viewers would like. I understood about It’s a Wonderful Life, but there are so many ore Xmas films t h st can show.

  26. Todd Hann says:

    The only Christmas movie that TCM is not showing is The Bishop’s Wife (Hallmark will be airing). But they are screening all their usuals – Holiday Affair, Scrooge, A Christmas Carol, Christmas in Connecticut, The Shop Around the Corner, etc.). AMC will screen White Christmas. TCM cannot show certain movies due to rights (It’s A Wonderful Life).

  27. We are so lucky to still have TCM, and I am sure that yall are doing your very best to bring as many of the old cherished Christmas movies to us as possible. Again, thank all of you for your effort! We appreciate all of you so much, and hope that you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

    • Loves Christmas says:

      Do not agree that TCM is doing their best to show Christmas movies. If they really cared about what their viewers wanted to watch they would ask what we want to see for the Holidays and revise their movies. Also, they are showing one Christmas movie a week until Christmas week. I say Humbug to TCM!!!

  28. Martha Process says:

    I agree with the above comments regarding your december lineup- it seems you are skipping many classics and I am wondering why! Please reconsider your line up this Month.

  29. Rosemarie Dezzi says:

    I cannot believe that TCM does not show It’s A Wonderful LIfe during the Christmas season.. I don.t believe that NBC has a contract, so that other stations cannot show this wonderful movie. It was always shown before this political correction came in as Saying Happy Holidays. instead of Merry Christmas. Christmas is a Christian Holiday and I say Merry Christmas to those who celebrate Christmas and to those who don’t I say nothing.

  30. Loves Christmas says:

    Once again TCM has a very poor showing of Christmas movies. On top of everything I have Time-Warner Cable and am disappointed in the way they show their TCM movies. I come from Comcast-land in Illinois and there seemed to be better showing of movies. Extremely disappointed in TCM not showing the old stand-by Christmas movies like “O’Henry’s Gift of the Magi” and “Come to the Stable” and the 1947 “Miracle on 34th Street” for the past 3 years. Shame on you Scrooges!!!

  31. Glory says:

    Why is TCM showing the same movie multiple times? There are certain movies I look forward to every year and I watch them only on TCM and this year not one of them are showing. I’m rather disappointed.

  32. This is by far the worst showing of Christmas movies by TCM to date!!!! No Bishop’s Wife which they normally show repeatedly throughout December. I know Hallmark has shown it only twice this Christmas Season but they have shown Christmas In Connecticut every darn Thursday since Thanksgiving. I know the dialogue by heart. They have also shown Angel Of 5th Avenue several times but TCM has shown it as well. Normally if TCM let’s another channel take a movie they themselves don’t show it. But TCM has been showing the movies they let Hallmark have Holiday Affair is one of them and is not my favorite movie at all! But where is the Bishops Wife and why not show White Christmas??? Ok so you loaned it out to AMC. You can still show it once and Mircle on 34th Street. As far as Its A Wonderful Life goes, I just don’t get it. TMC bought the entire MGM library which should mean they own It’s A Wonderful Life. But there are just dozens of great old holiday shows to be shown and this skimpy showing of Holiday shows this year by TMC only leaves me to believe that it’s a Ted Turner liberal thing. TMC is a liberal own network. And the lack of holiday shows this year just shows it is getting more and more so. And NO, I don’t think they could care less what we think! This is the fewest holiday shows they have ever aired. Look else where folks! Hallmark is a good place to start as well as AMC!!!

What do YOU think? Let us know!
