Tonight, the traditional holiday program A Charlie Brown Christmas will be shown on ABC. I’m planning to watch this wholesome family favorite with my four-year old daughter – who will likely be holding the stuffed Santa Snoopy toy that is currently one of her favorites.
But once Charlie Brown is done providing his simple outlook on American life in the 1960s, as well as the true meaning of Christmas, I don’t think we’re going to stick around for ABC’s next two programs: Happy Endings and Don’t Trust the B____ in Apartment 23. Those seem like odd choices to follow one of the most beloved family specials of the Christmas season – even if both episodes are Christmas themed.
In fairness, I haven’t watch either Happy Endings or Don’t Trust the B____, but I’m guessing that neither are all that appropriate for young children who like to repeat things they hear on TV.
On second thought, maybe I’ll record Charlie Brown, and we’ll watch it tomorrow when we can fast forward through the commercials and promos for ABC’s other shows.
