For your Thanksgiving viewing pleasure

OK, the TV is on NBC's coverage of the Macy's parade, there's a truly dreadful cup of coffee in front of us, and before we start digging through the Christmas decorations here at BRBTV headquarters (and before we start thinking about whipping up that batch of Beagle Baileys -- email if you want the recipe!), there's just a couple fun things we've got to share with ya ...

Not into the Thanksgiving Day parades? (And hey, we can't find a broadcast of the Dee-troit parade from way down here in Georgia, anyhow!) Well, right now on the Hallmark Channel, you can see one of our BRBTV stars, Rosemary Forsyth (who was the original Sophia Capwell on "Santa Barbara"), in "A Time to Remember." At 1 p.m. EST today, Hallmark shows "The Reading Room," starring Joanna Cassidy, who was the intriguing Sally Bullock on "Dallas." Then, at 3 p.m., it's "Our House," featuring Ellen Geer (Dr. Anita Krane on "Dallas," Dorothy on "SB" and a brief uncredited role on the pilot of "Dynasty") and Greg Evigan (Willie Gust on "Dallas"). This evening at 9, it's Shannon Wilcox, memorable as the crazy Anita who taunts J.R. in the asylum in later "Dallas," in "A Boyfriend for Christmas."

At 10 a.m. on TCM, you can see Janis Paige, our second Minx Lockridge on "SB," in her younger years on "Please Don't Eat the Daisies." At noon on FMC, catch Barbara Eden, who graced "Dallas" in the later years as LeeAnn de la Vega, in "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea." At the same time on TCM, it's "The Glass Bottom Boat" featuring the aforementioned Ellen Geer. Fun!

(And hey, this weekend, be sure to catch John Schneider, our own Bo Duke, in "Felicity: An American Girl Adventure," Saturday at 5 p.m. on Hallmark.)

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, from BRBTV ...
