Wednesday Prime Time on TCM

Unread post by Agnes » Mon Dec 11, 2017 9:21 pm

Anyone have any idea what TCM is showing this Wednesday in prime time, it why they are making a secret of it by not listing the films on the schedule?

I can't find any info, but:

With a lead-in of Yours, Mine, and Ours
and 10 hours to fill, I recommend a 9 hour version of Greed

I think that's the day they are showing a lot of Henry Fonda films?

It pains me to say, but from looking at TCM's recent prime time schedule the lineup probably won't be anything good. The best titles are found now in the ghetto of the early morning and the wee hours. I haven't watched prime-time TCM in a long time. I usually return to the stuff I recorded on DVR years ago, when Robert Osborne was host.

I found a thread about it:
http://forums.tcm.com/topic/157940-any- ... -the-13th/" target="_blank

The key quote from that is:

(The December Now Playing Guide states that TCM viewers can tune in at 8:00 PM for what they're calling "an exclusive announcement and night of programming." TCM's head of programming, Charlie Tabesh, has reported that the evening of programming on December 13th will be a "total surprise.")

Does the night's programmming include "The Goonies" and "Titanic"?

The documentary on the National Film Registry was fascinating . I was all set to PVR Ace In The Hole at 11:00 until I realized I had it on blu-ray from a Criterion sale and hadn't watched it yet !

I was out of town, but I remembered late after the night of programs was already underway & called my daughter & asked her to record so I could at least see when I returned.

Did they re-run the doc later?

The documentary, These Amazing Shadows, was only scheduled once.
You can see the line-up in an image on this page:
