2020 -It’s Friday, and Christmas is upon us. Well, technically the holiday is in two days, but nobody is just hanging out for the calendar to move. Holiday cheer is in full swing. The roads are packed. Airports are extremely busy. And the phones are going to voicemail because nobody is in the office. It’s time to enjoy Christmas with your close friends and family. When your party is in full swing, don’t forget to turn on the TV if the guests get a bit rowdy. Live stream programming is perfect for keeping the peace in even the loudest of holiday gatherings. There are no commercials so there will be no time for loud opinions!! Merry Christmas!

20/20 reflects on famous people lost in 2016

The news program “20/20” shares a special year end show on all the people lost in our world during 2016. This year many musical legends, famous people, talented actors and others who have passed on leave fans shocked and saddened. If you ask me (and trust me nobody did) this show would have been better suited after the Christmas holiday as this is a sobering reflection of the year in review. Catch the news program on ABC during Friday night’s primetime lineup.

Miranda Lambert hosts ‘A Home for the Holidays’

The warm fuzzy feeling of finding “A Home for the Holidays” will be felt watching CBS tonight. Offering a yearly tradition for viewers, the special highlights families and children that have come together through the foster care system. The importance of family and finding the perfect home is highlighted along with performances by Miranda Lambert.

‘Disney Parks’ Magical Christmas Celebration’

On Christmas morning, after all the presents have been unwrapped, you might want to catch Mickey Mouse and all his pals dance at the Disney Park Resorts around the world. The annual ABC special will include singing, dancing and all those classic moments only found at the mouse house. The holiday twist is a favorite for the kids and this year the lineup is insane. Mickey has invited Minnie Mouse, Goofy, Pluto and even Donald Duck. Oh I almost forgot, there are a lot of famous performers from Hollywood on stage too.

And finally… Watch out the Whos of Whoville!

The Grinch is on tonight with a repeated performance airing on NBC. Watch out the Whos of Whoville as this Christmas looks to be similar to the others as the Grinch hasn’t learned his lesson quite yet. The best part of “Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas” is that there is a happy ending for Whoville and the kids love it too. Now I’m not going to spoil the ending of this holiday show, but I’m really hoping you did see it once before. The first date of TV airing was December 18, 1966.
