We now return to normal programming

My enthusiasm for SUTS month has diminished over time, but that's only because I've already seen 90% of the best movies in it.  It's like the September pre-code Fridays----If I were a new viewer, there would be dozens of "premieres" for me instead of just one.

What is "normal " programming?  If we could take all of the films that TCM aired in August , put them in a giant bowl and then randomly pick films out of the bowl one at a time we would have  the same end result for the month.  But there would be no orderly "star of the day" . Just like loading up the CD player and pushing the shuffle function. :D

I believe 'normal' programming means NON tribute based programming,  with the expectation that NON tribute programming is more varied than tribute based.    While I agree that the Star of the Month can lead to static type of programmings since the focus is on ONE star,   to me Summer Under the Stars leads to a lot of variety (just as much as NON tribute programming).    The reasons being SUTS is NOT limited to only leading players but character \ supporting players,  and of course there are 31 different tributes.  

 

So the lack of varitey POV with SUTS doesn't ring true to me.

Normal means a variety of actors each day.  Not one person all day long and into the night for a month.
