ABC to Award Best Christmas Lights Titles

Just when you thought the reality show idea well had been exhausted, along comes “The Great Christmas Light Fight.” The new five-episode series features families from across America extreme-decorating their homes for Christmas.

One family in each episode will win $50,000.  “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” personalities Michael Maloney and Sabrina Soto will judge the decorated homes.

The first episode airs tonight, Dec. 9, 8 p.m. CT. Two back-to-back episodes will air Dec.16 and 23, 8 p.m.

We’ll be cheering on the Baughman family from Suddenlink-served Prosper, Texas, who can be seen competing Dec. 16.

‘Toy Story’ Halloween Special Bows on ABC


Wednesday, Oct. 16, a favorite Pixar legacy will continue when “Toy Story of Terror!” debuts on ABC (7 p.m. CT). The Halloween-themed TV special catches up with a group of animated playthings trying to survive the night in a creepy hotel, presumably six months after their adventures in 2010’s “Toy Story 3.”  The special will later broadcast several times throughout the month on Disney affiliate channels ABC Family and Disney XD.

TV News Search Service Launched

The Internet Archive is now offering a free TV news search service. The TV News Search & Borrow’s database contains roughly 350,000 television news video clips and transcripts starting in 2009. Users can access programs produced by 20 different broadcast and cable networks. The project also allow users to borrow the video clips via DVD. Program clips are added 24 hours after they’re first aired, with older programs also being added over time.

Beyond being a tool for researchers and news junkies, the service is designed to help engaged citizens better understand the issues and candidates in the 2012 elections.
