Say hello again to Frosty and Rudolph, returning in the annual airing of favorite and familiar animated holiday specials. But I can't remember a year when so many live-action TV movies have had Christmas motifs. Sadly, in a lot of these melodramas, including last week's One Special Victory and this week's Christmas on Division Street, the Yuletide theme merely serves as a gimmick, a shameless exploitation of holiday sentiment. Yes, Virginia, they'll do anything to get you to watch.
