Los Angeles (AP) -- Supply-chain woes are this year's Grinch, threatening to steal gifts and good cheer. But TV is overstocked with holiday specials and rom-coms — including the Food Network's first movie and the rebranded GAC Family channel's Christmas debut.

There’s options for watching some old favorites, such as 1965′s “A Charlie Brown Christmas.” The Peanuts special will air on PBS and is available on Apple TV+, which acquired the classic in 2020. The free viewing window the streaming service offered for it then has snapped shut this year.
