While I was snoozing, ABC sent out a press release about Christmas at the Whitehouse: An Oprah Primetime Special on December 13. By the time I woke up, I didn’t even bother looking at any of the early AM releases. Bill had the morning duties today, but in a hurry to head over the river and through the woods didn’t post the release opting instead to post stats that Bill and I seem to be the only ones who care about.
While Thanksgiving is traditionally a very slow time, I’m pretty sure James Hibberd is having his highest traffic day of the month, if not in the history of The Live Feed. He and Nellie Andreeva did a write-up on it and Drudge made it his top story (with the headline “Merry O-Mas: ABC Announces Oprah Obama Christmas Special”) linking to it. Oprah + Obama + Drudge Top Story = A very Happy Thanksgiving for the Live Feed! The post had about 300 comments in the first hour. And if you’re the type of person who is inclined to comment on Oprah+Obama, please don’t comment here, comment there!
