The holidays can be a really busy time of year. It’s incredibly easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of getting ready for whichever holiday you celebrate. There are light shows and performances to see, big dinners to plan, shopping to do – all sorts of stress-tivities! Sometimes you just need a break to enjoy the season.

 

Take that break with your local public television stations! ThinkTV and CET have a slew of holiday programs to share this November and December and we hope you can join us.

 

Some of the shows this year include Rod Stewart: Merry Christmas, Baby, Christmas with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, Antiques Roadshow: Greatest Gifts, Sting: A Winter’s Night, the Call the Midwife holiday special and much more.

 

We’ve put together a full listing of ThinkTV and CET holiday programs on each station’s website. Here are the links: http://thinktv.org/holiday-schedule and http://www.cetconnect.org/programs/holiday.

 

Let us know in the comments which program you’re most looking forward to!

What do you know about the manor where Downton Abbey is recorded? How well do you know the actors? What about the costumes? Have any guesses for what’s coming in Season 3?

 

Downton Abbey Revisited – which will air at 8pm and 9:30pm on ThinkTV16, CET and CET Arts on Nov. 25 – will take viewers behind-the-scenes to see how the show comes together and offer a sneak peek at what’s in store for the Crawleys as they enter the Roaring Twenties in Season 3. What will become of Bates? What new mischief will villainous footman Thomas and scheming O’Brien instigate? Will those wedding bells finally ring?

 

During the broadcast, Public Media Connect – CET and ThinkTV – will be offering thank you gifts to new and renewing members, including a before-you-can-get-it-in-stores copy of the Downton’s third season!

 

In the meantime, check out our new Downton Abbey web page! It’s chock full of previews, extra videos, Downton style, recipes, links and more. Here’s a link: http://www.cetconnect.org/programs/downton-abbey or http://www.thinktv.org/downton-abbey.

 

Let Downton Abbey Revisited and our special Downton page whet your palate for the Season 3 premiere on January 6th!

Attention Antiques Roadshow fans!

 

Last year, when it was announced that Roadshow would be coming to Cincinnati, WGBH, producing station for the series, received tens of thousands of requests to the taping. Some people had items they wanted a professional opinion about while others just wanted to be part of the Antiques Roadshow experience – but who left with good news?

 

Well, this April, you’ll have the answers! WGBH, has released when the three episodes taped in Cincinnati will be broadcast:

 

Hour 1: April 1, 2013, at 8pm

Hour 2: April 8, 2012, at 8pm

Hour 3: April 15, 2013, at 8pm

 

CET and ThinkTV16 will carry all three episodes on these national airdates and times.

 

We saw a huge variety of items during the Antiques Roadshow taping, so we’re excited to see what made the cut. The Dark Shadows-esque coffin? What about the giant Abe Lincoln bust? Collectible Star Wars memorabilia?

 

Were you at the Antiques Roadshow taping? What did you see? What do you think will make the show? Let us know in the comments!

This week on Market Warriors, pickers Miller, John, Bob and Kevin are off to the races at the Burlington Antique Show in Burlington, Kentucky!

 

The pickers are challenged with discovering unique lighting among the 200 vendors at the show. A pair of mid-century modern lamps invites some conversation… The final picks are set to be auctioned at A.N. Abell Auction Company in Los Angeles.

 

Off-screen host Mark L. Walberg points out notable picks that include a Marilyn Monroe thermometer, a pair of mid-century modern chairs and a chrome headboard. The pickers are keeping their fingers crossed that they were able to hit the jackpot in Northern Kentucky.

 

Visit our On Demand page for a preview: http://watch.cetconnect.org/video/2293791429.

 

The taping of this special Market Warriors was done this summer. Were you there? Have you wandered the lanes of the Burlington Antique Show? Tell us about it in the comments!
