Anyone else feeling some disappointment in this years countdown line up? And why was it reduced to only SEVEN DAYS?

I understand this is the “countdown” to 25 Days of Christmas but Hunger Games? They are already airing this as part of the 13 Nights of Halloween. And Paranorman? Toy Story of Terror?

Seriously hoping the actual “25 Days of Christmas” is much, much better.

    wow really bad movies also why are all the Cinderella movies on at 12AM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!CBS has better stuff than this,,,,,,,,,,not be watching sorry

  • Heidi says:

    I have no problem with this list. All the good christmas movies are IN 25 days of Christmas, where they are supposed to be. I like that it’s regular movies in place of their regular programming, and since this overlaps thanksgiving, it doesn’t encroach on thanksgiving with Christmas. It’s a countdown. They don’t have to do a countdown. If it was christmas movies you might as well make it 35 days of Christmas which is just silly.

  • Lona says:

    Once again – no UNDERCOVER CHRISTMAS – and the WORST lineup of movies I’ve ever seen. Thank goodness for Hallmark – they GET IT. I won’t be watching your programming AT ALL this year!

  • i just love all christmas shows
    like they all show on abc family

  • Celina Vigus says:

    I love abc family 25 days of Christmas movies i am going spend day with my family and cousins

  • trell says:

    Everyone should call ABC Family or email them to change the line up.

  • Chad Fletcher says:

    ABC FAMILY, You CAN change the line-up for the Countdown to the 25days of Christmas!!! I mean my family and many others watch your station religiously every year! Your channel put’s 100’s of thousand’s of people in the spirit every year. But this Hallmark Channel gets the nod!!! Really? Hunger Games? Pananorman?? TOY STORY of TERROR???? Plenty of days left to change it!!!

    • Jennifer says:

      Totally agree…this is a horrible lineup. This has nothing to do with Christmas at all….Hallmark…thanks for giving us something to watch!!!

  • Christine says:

    Where are the Christmas movies or a holiday theme! These are not holiday friendly movies for Christmas. Please don’t tell me you guys are turning away from Christmas!!! I want to see Rudolph and frosty all the old movies/cartoons that puts the spirit of the season the child innocence. Not the garbage you have lined up my family will be watching hallmark for sure!

  • rhonda says:

    I would like to know who pick’s these movies come on get real
    what happen to the old days when abc family showed Christmas movies all day and Christmas in July. I would pick better movies then this I hoe 25 days of Christmas is better

  • Kim Rogers says:

    Where is THREE DAYS!!!!???????????

  • Really?? says:

    Is the scheduler non Christian? A party pooper? ABC Fam should be ashamed!!

  • why? says:

    Why do you always show movies for the countdown to the 25 days of Christmas and the actual countdown that have absolutely nothing to do with Christmas at all!! It’s Christmas time I want to see a mixture of old and new Christmas shows, not these ordinary movies that are the same old thing every year and have no business being on a Christmas countdown!!!!

  • Say says:

    What about this says christmas…just go to Hallmark and Hallmark Movie/mystery channels for your Christmas movies!!!

  • Mike says:

    What the H###; Where are the Christmas movies. 25 days of Christmas Ha-Ha! Where is the HO-HO?

  • Janet says:

    Extremely Disappointed…Whom ever came up with this super short countdown forgot what they were doing. ITS NOT TH THIRTEEN DAYS OF HALLOWEEN!!!! It’s Supposed to be CHRISTMAS movies. Will SO NOT be tuning in. You messed up BIG TIME.

  • Alex S. says:

    Very disappointed!

    Dark shadows?!, Toy Story of Terror?!, Mirror Mirror?!, Pixar Movies?!

    How is that Christmas programming?!

    I’ll be tuning into Hallmark this November and watching Netflix for the ABC family Christmas movies.

    Such a shame

  • Anonymous says:

    What?? This is worry. 19 days countdown to 25 days of Christmas!!!

  • Name says:

    A Miser Brothers’ Christmas. Please Come Back. We miss you!!!

  • rita davidson says:

    The countdown is only 5 days? Where are the Christmas shows? Did you mix up the holiday with Halloween? I won’t be tuning in that’s for sure if this is the line up. Hallmark here I come!

  • Terry Wood says:

    Not saying that there aren’t some fun things to watch, but I count 2 Christmas-themed shows.

    Of course with the Hallmark channels showing Christmas movies starting on Halloween, it might be smart to counter program.

    But this certainly wasn’t what I expected.

  • carol forte says:

    These are not Christmas movies.

  • diane says:

    i would love to see the old cartoons of Christmas. like Nester, Santa Claus is coming to town etc

  • Dalton says:

    So when does the regular 25 days of Christmas lineup usually come out?

  • SouthernLady says:

    This is the WORST line-up of Christmas themed movies I’ve ever seen! Hunger Games? Seriously?! Toy Story of Terror? Yeah, that sounds like a family Christmas movie! Who’s in charge of programming at ABC Family? I think they may secretly working for the competition! That’s the only logical explanation.
