View Full Version : Elvis not on TV

08-02-2010, 12:45 AM
So now that we are into August I always look forward to see what Elvis movies are being played on TV. One cable station in particular Turner Classic Movies usually has a few Elvis movies playing on the 16th. Well this year they are showing no Elvis movies in August. Then I searched for Elvis movies on TV Guide site and there are really not a lot stations playing Elvis movies. I'm dissappointed. I know I can watch the movies I have but I usually like seeing the movies I can tune to that I don 't have. This is the first time I've seen this. It seems strange. :supriced:

Yes, that is very weird. I always enjoy watching them on TV. I really love TCM. (y)

I like TCM and AMC. American Movie classics.

Yes, Bradley AMC is another one to show Elvis movies but even they didn't come up. Encore is playing Wild in the Country a couple of times this month and Family Net is playing Clambake. that's it for the month that I can see.
