Bad Santa need not apply as the Hallmark and Lifetime networks rev up their very merry Christmas machines

Christmas comes but once a year, but is starting to seem year-‘round on the dueling Hallmark and Lifetime networks. Their holiday season new movie rollouts begin in early November, with ABC Family also chipping in later with a “Countdown to 25 Days of Christmas” preceding its actual “25 Days of Christmas” celebration.

Uncle Barky looks at all the goo while also perhaps melting your heart with a proposed Christmas film tied to his traumatizing youthful experience at a drive-in theater’s “Christmas in July” extravaganza. Hark, it’s all on our Network News & Reviews page.
