It shows just how much The Yule Log means to NY Metro Area audiences.  In a time when anything reassuring and traditional is scarce, The Yule Log delivers what we need every Christmas, something familiar and comforting.  In these tough times, that's very important!

#2 is good, #1 is even better!

I don't care what WGN puts on next year.  I'm making good on my promise to never watch them again.

I'll be in Southern California next Christmas, anyway, and can just watch the whole thing on KTLA !  --Assuming KTLA puts it on....and I might email them those ratings as a reminder.......if they're even so much as thinking of switching.

I'm through with WGN for good.  I know that sounds dramatic, but they committed three grievances:

1.  Fake cartoon yule log with nonsense yammering
2.  Not telling viewers in time about airing the original WPIX, or when
3.  Chopping the original WPIX in half, when they did decide to air it

I will never watch WGN again, and I mean it too !

Hello Everyone!

Well, the numbers don't lie, do they?

Hopefully, the folks at WGN America will remember these numbers and air our Yule Log in its entirety from this year forward.

Well the "new" WGN Yule Log for 2008 was one of many reasons I have boycotted WGN America completely. I love the Chicago based one and always will but these folks will never be tuned in on my satellite provider. I completely deleted them on my system. Luckily for me, I was smart enough to have recorded the WPIX version and have it on a recordable DVD. Please everyone, let's all join in as a group and boycott WGN America
