Don't Miss The Christmas Specials

I'm a sucker for animated snowmen and Grinches. I own most of the great Christmas specials on DVD, but there's still something special about catching the live broadcasts on TV (remember the announcer, and the special graphic that used to play right before the show?). Lucky for me, USA Today posted their December TV Calendar. Some highlights:

Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer, TONIGHT, 8pm ET on CBS

A Charlie Brown Christmas, Tuesday December 15, 8pm ET on ABC

Frosty The Snowman, Saturday December 19, 8pm ET on CBS

How The Grinch Stole Christmas, Wednesday December 23, 8pm ET on ABC

You can find the full calendar on their website.

And while you're at it, what's your favorite TV Christmas special? I'll start: Rudolph with Grinch a close second.
