Holiday Programming

Written by Holly on Thursday December 3, 2009

Christmas_TV'Tis the season for festive, inspirational and highly-entertaining television programming! We enjoy putting the schedule together this time of year. Many of our viewers have taken the time to tell us how much they appreciate the programming and we always love hearing that.

We had a lot of holiday programs to choose from this year. Unfortunately, we can't show them all. But we think the schedule is packed as full as possible. We hope you will enjoy!

The season kicks off tomorrow night with a rare Red Green episode where Red makes tinsel out of potato chip bags and a wreath from an old tire. The Radio City Rockettes kick off (haha!) the musical programming on Saturday. And it just gets better from there. The rest of the month is full of more comedy, some drama and plenty of music in all genres.

Attached is a list of the programs in order of their first airdate. The third column of the repeat airdates only includes daytime and primetime broadcasts on OETA's main channel. For a full list of airdates, including overnight schedules and multicast channels, do a title search here

 Happy Holidays! Merry Christmas!
