Heartwarming story? It is so badly written. Like the most unimaginative and uninspired person could have written it. That and the fact you can tell she’s lip-syncing (even if she is, you shouldn’t be able to notice it on screen). What a waste of time. Mariah’s Magical Christmas FLOP!
You can tell Charlie Brown is lipsyncing too, so cut Maria some slack...

Well I am not a stay at home mum but I love al those you mention, especially Mariah.
I’m a normal suburban housewife and the amount of contempt (in the form of dismissive language) shown on this forum for anything that might remotely interest women in general and teen girls or housewives in particular is starting to get old. There’s room enough for all of us at the table. I wish people would stop criticizing Apple for setting a place for us.

Exactly. I’m a mum. On my days off I’m pretty much a housewife. I’m glad Apple TV plus is diverse and is making content for a wide range of people including me.

Man...Mariah Carey, Oprah, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton, Obama. Apple's marque stars are painfully mainstream and aimed at normie suburban housewives. I would rather eat plain oatmeal in a mall foodcourt than watch any of these windbags.

Hmmm Mariah Carey is not exactly my favourite...
I’d love to know who did the packaging for her new cookie partnership. It looks so pedestrian.
