This is something that has really pissed me off. I remember the slew of movies and shows that used to be on holidays like Columbus Day and Thanksgiving; King Kong, Mighty Joe Young, Albert and Costello, stuff like that. Why don't the networks show anything like that anymore? The worst part is that they insist on rolling out the same everyday tripe like soaps and court shows.
EDIT- Mods merge with the Wooden Soldiers thread please.
