Blogger captures strange pleasures of the made-for-TV Christmas movie

Let us for a moment consider the strange pleasures of the made-for-TV Christmas movie. Did I say pleasures? Sorry, I meant ... actually, I don't know what I meant because as a genre, this might be one of the more baffling if robust annual traditions-turned-fetish dominated by a small niche of cable channels that you might not even realize are included in your monthly package.

Watch WRAL's message promising to no longer silence language on 'Saturday Night LIve'

Just before the start of Saturday night’s episode of “Saturday Night Live,” local NBC affiliate WRAL aired a special message promising to no longer silence language on the program. During last week’s show, hosted by Dave Chappelle, the station attempted to mute two objectionable words used by the comedian, but drew criticism from viewers because their 8-second delay impeded the flow of the program. WRAL is the only market in the country known to have muted portions of the broadcast.
