New York Times gets Thompson's take on Christmas variety shows

January 7, 2020

Robert Thompson, trustee professor and director of the Bleier Center for Television and Popular Culture, was interviewed by the New York Times for the article, "Love Christmas Variety Shows? Go Ahead, Take Another Helping."

“One of the properties of Christmas is nostalgia,” said Thompson. “All of a sudden at Christmastime, the old, the non-innovative, the old fashioned becomes an asset, not a liability.”
