    I wish we had access to the GAC station, unfortunately we don’t. The Christmas movie list appears to have some good stories. The trend in television is too Hollywood for me.

    Glad to see that Debbie Matenopoulos and Cameron Mathison are hosting the “Welcome to Great American Christmas (Special)”. We liked them on the Hallmark Channel’s “Home and Family” show, which ended its run this past summer. And we’ll definitely be looking forward to watching the Christmas movies on GAC Family this year.

  • Scott Wilson says:

    Our family was happily surprised to see Bewitched on your channel the other night. We find that sitcom a very funny program and haven’t seen it for some time so when we were channel hopping and saw it, we tuned into GAC for the rest of the entire evening watching Bewitched. Thank you so much for airing our favorite all time program from the 1960’s and 1970’s. We will tune in for the Christmas programs now that we have the schedule. We hope your holidays and Christmas are magical!

  • Douglas Cazel says:

    Thoroughly enjoying watching Bewitched back to back on GAC! It’s one of our families favorite tv shows ever. What a treat to get to watch Bewitched back to back! We’ve not watched one of our favorite shows in such a long time. Thank you GAC for airing Bewitched back to back! Sincerely, The Cazel Family
