"MeTV" will bring back fond memories beginning at 2:00 PM every Sunday until Christmas Eve. If you enjoy heartwarming shows, and programs that uphold the spiritual meaning of the season, you will be in for a treat.

Many desire the feeling of Christmas long ago

"MeTV" is not the only network that promises to bring back the feeling of Christmas long ago. You may also tune in to "getTV" which is also presenting classic holiday shows, by airing specials hosted celebrities such as Judy Garland, Andy Williams, and Bing Crosby every Wednesday night beginning November 26. Retro television programming is in high demand with numerous television channels only showing programs that are from the 1950's through the 1980's.

Many Americans who grew up in those decades miss the G rated programming they were accustomed to. They now are able to enjoy many of their favorite shows on "MeTV" and "getTV". This year they get an added bonus and can view memorable classic holiday episodes of beloved sitcoms, as well as variety show programming.

Included with the Christmas programs there also will be Thanksgiving episodes of "Happy Days" and Saved by the Bell."

'Scrooge' will air on 'MeTV' on Christmas Eve

On December 3, at 2:30 PM "Memorable Television" will air the popular made for TV movie "A Very Brady Christmas." This classic has a holiday miracle that takes place on 34th street when Carol Brady suddenly recovers her voice and is able to sing "O Holy Night" in church.

The network will conclude A very Merry "MeTV" on December 24 with the 1970 musical version of "Scrooge", starring Albert Finney. It's not really that time of year without some rendition of the Charles Dickens classic "A Christmas Carol." "Scrooge" is one that is shown every year and gets good reviews.

If you long for Christmas past and more programs that emphasize the spiritual meaning of the holiday, make sure to tune in to "MeTV" each Sunday beginning November 12. The sitcoms and movies they have chosen to air will no doubt bring the spirit of the season right through the television.
