Regifting of sorts is what The Comedy Network is doing for XMess 2010. The cool thing is most of these are pretty good shows you do not mind seeing again. The Christmas line-up is not quite a Miracle on 34th Street but there is certainly something for everyone except the Grinch.
The hellidays start fairly early on The Comedy Network with two seasonal South Park episodes December 5th at 9 and 9:30. The next two Sundays will also feature two South Parks each. The episodes are Dec. 5: Mr. Hanky's Christmas Classics and Are You There God? It's Me, Jesus; Dec. 12: A Very Crappy Christmas and Red Sleigh Down; Dec 19 It s Christmas in Canada and Woodland Critter Christmas.
Other seasoned specials include Jeff Dunham - Very Special Christmas Special Friday Dec 10th at 11 p.m., A Colbert Christmas Saturday the 11th at 10, and A Muppets Christmas: Letters to Santa Saturday the 18th at 5.
You can't have XMess without The Simpsons. A few seasoned shows are scheduled: Saturday, Dec. 18 9 and 9:30 Simpson's Roasting on an Open Fire and Marge Be Not Proud; Dec. 20 at 9 Miracle on Evergreen Terrace; Dec. 21 at 9 Grift of the Magi; Dec. 22 Skinner's Sense of Snow" and Thursday, Dec. 23at 9 Tis the 15th Season
December 24th at 6 in the morning you can watch It's a Very Red Green Christmas before launching out for that last minute killing somebody in the mall parking lot er shopping.
Christmas day features a day-long Big Bang Theory marathon starting at 8 in the morning while you open The Big Bang Theory Season 3 Blu-ray set someone who really loves you bought for you.
Something is definitely burning with the Comedy Central Roasts starting at 11 in the morning Boxing Day. You can skip the Flavor Flav roast but the others are fun.
The Comedy Network rings out the old with a 2-day Corner Gas marathon starting the 31st at 5 p.m.
Christmas may be a most depressing season and perhaps the Grinch never wins over the damn Whos in Whoville but The Comedy Network at least puts a smile on your face.
