I Tivo'd the broadcast but haven't watched it except for the first few minutes.  Am I mistaken, or was that a gas fireplace with ceramic logs?

I didn't see any ashes or smoke like we see during the original WPIX Yule Log.  I'm probably not going to watch WGN's yule log, but may copy the soundtrack to mp3 as I love listening to old time radio broadcasts.  The fireplace itself didn't look too bad, but it didn't have the warmth of the WPIX Yule log and almost looked "sterile" like in a hospital.

Our local ABC affiliate did their own version of a yule log too I haven't watched it yet to give it any kind of rating but I know it can't compare to the one and only WPIX Yule Log.

No, you are not mistaken; that's exactly what it was -- totally fake.

And since I have nothing nice to say about it, I'd rather say nothing at all -- I don't think it deserves any more attention than it's already received.

I Tivo'd the WGN version too and was immediately turned off by the look and feel of it. I tried to give it a chance, but their idea is not going to work. The old radio broadcasts may be good so I'm going to try your idea Susan and copy the audio and listen to it on its own. I hope this Christmas they will air our Yule Log in its entirety. Maybe, they'll rebroadcast "It's a Log's Life" as well. Let's keep our fingers crossed.
