Does it annoy you when the cast of a fictional TV show directly address its audience to wish them a Merry Christmas or Happy New?

The Bold and the Beautiful often does a Christmas themed episode at the end of which the cast directly address the audience and wish them a merry Christmas. Although this can be a thoughtful sentiment, it can also detract from the fictional storyworld of the show by drawing attention to its constructedness.

Do any of the shows you watch do this? Do you like it or not and why?

It doesn't bother me at all, I actually like it. I know it breaks from the story, but it also reminds you that the actors are also normal people and that they appreciate you as a viewers.
It does bother me!
I do not celebrate Christmas, and even if I did, I find this innapropriate.

It is a show with a story and therefore, ridiculous to wish anyone a Merry Christmas.

If it is a comedy or a show that breaks the fourth wall on a regular basis, then no. If it is a drama or something like that, then I wouldn't like it. I think I have only seen it happen in a few comedies anyway.

Yes, I HATE them doing that, if it’s no where near Dec 1st! One comedy show I remember them showing my pet hate in, is Mrs Brown.I don’t even like to see Christmas mentioned in movies before Dec 1st!
