In my area (and perhaps others) Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer was scheduled to air on Thursday (22nd). It is listed in the paper, and was on my Tivo schedule. As of yesterday, it has been replaced with the ever-lame "Without a Trace". A repeat at that. Let your 80-year old grandparents know they can catch an extra episode of their favorite show - their joy may partially make up for the trauma experienced by millions of kids. Nice going, CBS.
