Happy Holidays, a bit early
It’s sunny and 60 and shirtsleeves… so why do I hear Christmas music? WVMX-FM (MIX94.1) has become the first radio station switching to full-time holiday music, just 47 days before Christmas. Other stations -- WARM98, MOJO94.9, country 96.5, oldies WGRR, Q102 and B105 – are playing their Christmas songs on their websites, but not spewing it into the airwaves… Yet.
The sweeps stunt I’ll be watching tonight is Martin Sheen’s guest appearance on his son’s show, “Two and a Half Men” (9 p.m., Channels 12, 7)… I’ll probably tape “Vegas,” it sound pretty cool doing a flashback show to the ‘60s... and maybe "Prison Break," which will end in the next month to clear a spot for "24."
Connie Chung, last seen anchoring on CNN, has a new gig on MSNBC co-hosting a weekend show with husband Maury Povich (whose talk show is distributed by NBC). The new half-hour program launches 10 a.m. Saturday Jan. 7, and repeats at 4 p.m. Saturday and Sundays at 11 a.m. and 4 p.m.
