    Bahumbug to AMC for not showing Miracle on 34th street (1947), Its a Wonderful Life and A Christmas Story. Elf and National Lampoon is on every day. The programming department needs an overhaul. Until this changes I am boycotting AMC and hope others do as well.

    • Rebecca Zinko says:

      You really ruined Christmas!!

    • Kimisuki says:

      I believe Disney owns the rights now and that’s why it’s not going to be on a regular station. Sadness.

    • Juju says:

      It’s a Wonderful (1947 James Stewart) is playing all day long on channel E! Starting at 5:00AM (run time 3 hours). Not sure what your movie preferences are but a lot of other holiday classics on channel TCM. It Happened on 5th Avenue (1947 Don DeFore); The Shop Around the Corner (1940 James Stewart); Christmas in Connecticut (1945 Barbara Stanwyck); Meet me in St Louis (1944 Judy Garland); others. Like you, I’ve yet to find Miracle on 34th Street on any cable channel. Really sad. I can’t stand all the modern and ridiculous Christmas movies—bunch of garbage. And don’t get me started on the Hallmark channel. Satan has taken over.

    Question who are the idiots who are programming the Christmas shows for 2017. They should be fired
    Where are the traditional Christmas shows?

  • can you please tell me if “Miracle on 34th st.” will be aired at all this 2016 holiday season??…thz..god bless.

    • Caryl Diana says:

      I was looking for it as well, the only thing I found was HBO and one day……it really irks me that it is not on. Netflix only has the 1994 version which stinks. Very unhappy

        I Totally Agree WHY doesn’t PAY TV show this classic Especially on TMC Channel 97 New York
        Miracle on 34th st 1947
        White Christmas, All the Old Original Movies we knew as youngsters.
        With what I pay for TV Christmas Movies should be shown around Christmas.

    • Ellie says:

      When will Miracle on 34th Street be airing on AMC Channel?

    • tom says:

      I think it sucks their not showing this or a very brady Christmas on reg stations not everyone has hbo it should be shown on fox like every year they are trying to ruin christmas

      • The old Christmas movies are the best and what we were raised on! It’s very sad for the younger generation not to be able to see, enjoy and learn the magic of Miracle on 34th Street, The Bells of St. Marys, and so many more with Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye!!! Bring them back!!!

        • Caryl Diana says:

          I don’t think this page even reads our comments. Except for us that post it goes unanswered, I posted on FB and sent to Public just to air my displeasure in this seasons line up. It’s a real shame, I remember when you couldn’t decide what to watch cause they were on all the same time, but at least they were on. Boomerang has a lot of the cartoons but if you don’t pay for it you can’t get them.

          Merry Christmas to all that post

  • Debbie says:

    This is by far the best Christmas movie ever made. I have watched it so many times each Christmas I know the dialogue by heart. It puts you in that old fashioned Christmasy feeling. I wish things were like that today.

  • Caryl says:

    I am glad Miracle on 34 Street (1947)will be aired, but disappointed that it is only on once while other shows are constantly being repeated. It was not on last year which was totally wrong. What happened to all the good old movies and cartoons. It’s a shame, if you have any control could you please put it on more this season?

  • Sparkles says:

    Love the old Christmas movies. Please air them.

  • Laura says:

    Where is the original Miracle on 34th Street? I can’t believe it’s not on!

  • Carol says:

    I think AMC stinks this year. Where are the old movies??? Mircle on 34th street! Hate it

  • TC says:

    what has happened to our beautiful Older Christmas movies?? Who made such a decision to take ALL of them off the air? and Miracle on 34th Street (the older version especially) can’t even be found on Netflix or anywhere except to buy it! I’m sorry, but BUYING the movie, jsut isn’t the same as knowing these old favorites will be on TV during the Holidays! There are other Hallmark older movies that show the tru meaning of Christmas – not like these newer movies that are just heart throb stories!

    Bah-Humbug…. you are taking the Christmas tradition away… 🙁

    Where is “Miracle on 34th Street”, “Holiday Inn”, “It’s a Wonderful Life”….????

  • Joanie Hardy says:

    Very upset for not having Miracle on 34th St. I look forward to watching this classic every year. Very disappointed…2013

  • Jimmie Byrd says:

    That’s why I can’t find this movie. I look forward every year to watching this movie. Please will someone show this on T.V. AMC, where are you.

  • My family is very disappointed that the original “Miracle on 34th Street” i doesn’t appear to be on this year (2013). It was old when I was a child but still a great classic.
