Note to television executives
It's really not hard. Give us what we want, and we'll watch it.

WPIX in New York returned to its roots and broadcast a fireplace for two hours. No, really. That's not the punch line. From 1966 to 1989, it ran all day Christmas Day, and ever since they cancelled it faithful viewers have asked for a return to "comfort television". This year the program, called simply "Yule Log", returned to the air.

Here's the punch line: It won its time slot.

Well, what else do you need on Christmas morning?
