How Much Do I Love The Ovation Channel?

Ovation generally shows a lot of documentaries about creative artist types, which is a huge notch above reality shows and absolutely fine with me.

But lately, every time I click on it, they're airing one of my all-time favorite camp movies.

Mahogany!

Sparkle!

Gypsy!

Mommie Dearest!

A Chorus Line!

Could this thing get any more up my alley in a certain part of town?

They even show Brokeback Mountain!

This channel has clearly become Logo meets TCM, and obviously I'm the guest programmer and I don't even know it.

And I am not complaining.

Like Mahog herself, Ovation is a winner, baby.

I am completely with you on this one, Michael. I've been watching it for over a year and it's like having a fairy godmother. Case in point, for no real reason I tried in vain to find a copy of Bette's "Gypsy" and the next week it showed up on Ovation. Almost makes me want to Tebow, but not really.

"Sparkle" is currently being remade with Jordin Sparks (American Idol) and Whitney Houston. True story.

Funny you should mention Sparkle...I just watched it for the first time a couple of weeks ago, although I'd seen bits and pieces long time ago.

Ovation is the channel I kinda "forget" but love when I stumble across a gem.

I agree. The chance to see weird gems like Chorus Line and Sparkle is amazing. Even TCM doesn't show those.
