Not that I care, but why is Frosty on at 9pm as opposed to 8?

According to the Futon Critic, the reason for "Frosty the Snowman" being listed for the Eastern time of 9:00 p.m. in CBS' programming plans for the Friday of November 28th is due to CBS' plan for providing a new edition of "The Amazing Race" one hour before providing "Frosty the Snowman" that day.

Macy's "Yes Virginia" is rubbish compared to the Bill Melendez classic "Yes Virginia, There Is A Santa Claus"

The cons of the Macy's incarnation of the story
- Macy's iconography shoehorned into the story's timeframe (i.e. the "Believeometer")
- Characters are mean spirited to Virginia more so than the Bill Melendez classic
- Virginia rage quits her faith in Christmas in the 2nd half
- All it took was a drunk bum in santa suit to persuade Francis Church to write the response
- Virginia's parents serve little to plot compared to Bill Melendez classic

Basically, Macy's version tarnishes the story by trying too hard to be like a Hallmark/Lifetime movie
Do us a favor and stick to the Bill Melendez classic
