    This is disgraceful — Where are the Christmas Classics — Prime station cant make enough money airing them? Where are the Christmas movies of love, kindness, faith and belief. The original Miracle on 34th Street should have been on right after the Macy’s Parade — the only movie that starts with Thanksgiving and ends on Christmas day! The 1951 version of A Christmas Carol is the best, should be schedule to broadcast on Christmas Eve! All others in between, The Bells of St. Mary’s, It’s a Wonderful life, Holiday Inn, and White Christmas, to name a few should be shown more than once during the holiday season. And what about the animated classics; Charlie Brown, Rudolph, Frosty, the year without a santa claus to name a few – they need to be on often and various stations too. The millennials controlling the programing are clueless. Enough of the violence, blood and guts, evil santas etc. DAMN IT – IT’S CHRISTMAS.

    Where is Academy Award Murphwinning Miracle on 34th Street? Certainly one of the best Christmas movies ever.

    Almost NO Christmas movies at all–not even the best movie ever made–the 1951 version of A CHRISTMAS CAROL with Alastair Sim. TCM has become a disgrace!!

      1951 Christmas Carol is a must during the holidays. Numerous times would be nice. The same goes for all the classic Christmas movies. These movies are what turned my children, and now my grandchild, into TCM fans.

    This listing pretty much sucks. I would love to see Holiday Inn, White Christmas, The Man Who Came To Dinner, Bachelor Mother and every version of A Christmas Carol…

    What they are allowed to show is all about lawyers, rights issues, and money. That’s what determines whether or not we can have a Merry TCM Christmas.
