It's the most wonderful time of the year - especially if you're a cable network with lots of holiday spirit.

It's part of a larger thing that's been lost with so many people having cable and now getting their media from other places such as online and Netflix. No longer can you expect to have a watercooler conversation the day after a big TV show or movie. It's not like how it used to be when everyone had the same few broadcast channels and the majority of people sat down to watch the same big shows. Big sport games and presidential debates are about the only thing left that many people will watch at the same time. It is kind of sad to lose that kind of togetherness that you used to feel when big shows came on TV and you knew that everyone else was watching it at the same time.

Not only has the holiday taken over most of my favorite cable stations (Lifetime, Hallmark, etc.), it has also taken over my 2 favorite radio stations. Enough already! Personallly, I cannot wait until it is over.

Turn the danged TV off and have a real life experience. We all have far too much screen time.
