HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS
November 29, 2013  | By David Bianculli

ABC, 8:00 p.m. ET

 

Here’s how I, as a TV critic Grinch, review tonight’s telecast of this 1966 holiday classic: It’s shown on the wrong #&$^*! holiday. This is the day after Thanksgiving, and it’s far too early for me to watch, much less recommend, a Christmas special, when the calendar still reads November, and when I haven’t even had my first meal of turkey leftovers. Ebenezer Scrooge would say “Humbug.” Today, so do I. If you want to record tonight’s ABC telecast for later viewing, be my guest. Just don’t watch it now, or soon. Life is too short. And the holiday “season” already is too long.
