Good Grief: President's address preempts Charlie Brown and the gang

Now, before you call me a Communist, Fascist or any other kind of "Ist," I'm not in any way suggesting that annual holiday traditions should trump significant policy decisions or that the President should consider my TV viewing habits in his scheduling of speeches. In fact, I will be watching the presidential address tonight -- and so should you.

However, Snoopy and the gang seem to get the worst of it. WBAY preempted "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" for "Tuesday Night Touchback" last month, and now ABC is moving "A Charlie Brown Christmas" to next week at 7 p.m. for President Obama's primetime speech. Will Charlie Brown ever get a break?

Other programming to get moved includes "The Jay Leno Show" that gets bumped for a two-hour episode of "The Biggest Loser" on NBC that'll air after the President's speech. Maybe NBC will take a cue and permanently bump off that show. Read more in this TV Guide story.
