'Charlie Brown Thanksgiving' draws biggest audience in 4 years
Itâ€™s remarkable how strong the Charlie Brown specials continue to perform in the ratings, year after year.
A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving is not the most popular entry in the beloved animated franchise (both A Charlie Brown Christmas and Itâ€™s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown deliver bigger numbers). Yet the program still managed to hold its own against CBSâ€™ Survivor and Foxâ€™s The X-Factor (in fact, the special edged out Factor in total viewers, see below). Plus, A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving delivered its biggest audience in four years â€” 8.1 million viewers and a 2.2 rating in the adult demo, up 22 percent from last year. Pretty spry for a 39-year-old repeat, huh?...
When I post comments I proof read them, sometimes several times looking for simple grammar mistakes such as a missing verb or a verb spelled wrong which I then correct with the "edit" button. Do I catch all my simple grammar mistakes? NO. But using the method described above my simple grammar mistakes have decreased considerably since I began posting at SermonAudio.
Oh my, did I write Mr. Gramor? I should learn how to spell. I believe the correct spelling is Mr. Grammar.
Before I even started going to IHCC my future pastor had an article about him in the local rag in which he stated it was better to be out on a golf course than go to a liberal (and I assume any apostate church?) This is why I point out to John Y, Come out of the Catholic Church and then start considering, What to Look for in a Church. I know this easier said then done, and almost always including myself, we try to find a good church first before we abandon our sinking ship of an apostate church.
Now admittedly Calvinistic dispensational Christians have some serious disagreements with the Reformed/conservative Presbyterians, but hey depending how far off of what is given as a good church they'll do in a pinch. (Sorry about that fellows! But, you notice we do consider you Christians!).
You can also ask for advice of a Calvinistic Dispensational Baptist pastor nearest you, for people of like mind in your area. We have had people drives 20 or 30 miles perhaps more, to attend Indian Hills.
Unfortunately the mentioning of God and or Christ comes at the ends of these specials. I'm usually put to sleep by them long before then.
Webster's 1913 Dictionary wrote: Insipid: 2. Wanting in spirit, life, or animation; uninteresting; weak; vapid; flat; dull; heavy; as, an insipid woman; an insipid composition. Flat, insipid, and ridiculous stuff to him. South. But his wit is faint, and his salt, if I may dare to say so, almost insipid. Dryden. Syn. -- Tasteless; vapid; dull; spiritless; unanimated; lifeless; flat; stale; pointless; uninteresting.
Actually, I have almost always enjoyed the Chas. Brown comic strips. I usually found them at least amusing, and sometimes downright funny. I don't know how people do watch the "animated," CBs, I don't think they transfer at all to t.v.
Anyway, if you get to watch the life of Charles Schultz on PBS (I think it was PBS?) It was quite interesting this Methodist had the misfortune of marrying a "Lucy," instead of the little "Red-headed girl down the block." He being a Methodist probably was suffering from that handicap however in forming a marriage with "Lucy." Being an ex-methodist myself, I'm sorry to see he didn't become one, himself, hint, hint, John Y.
