In the middle of the Christmas hustle I finally found the ratings for the airing of our film "The Flight before Christmas" on December 12th: of the 98 primetime shows in the week from December 8th to 14th, it came in as number 36, just below Law and Order but just above 30 Rock! It rated 2.5, which is as close to the average as you can get, and it means 7,390,000 people were tuned in to it!

Mike Sporn points out that it aired again locally in New York yesterday, which I find simply amazing. As to the film itself, I do find that the cutting of the 29 minutes helps it along, though there are a few places one seems to be missing a bit of info. Not at all bad, though. Over all, I think the film looks pretty nice for an about $9m project. I only personally was a little shocked about the casualness with with Niko was conceived, but then again, these are reindeer...

Excuse my erratic posting these days, folks! These are crazy times!
I am thinking of what to post next, and considering what I have at hand it may be the draft for The Sword in the Stone. In the mean time, Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas!
