Is it mean to pick on the Hollywood Christmas Parade ? When you call yourself the “Hollywood” Christmas Parade and you take place on “Hollywood” Boulevard, and the best celebrities you can deliver are casts of WB shows nobody's ever heard of, then yeah, it's not mean to pick on the Hollywood Christmas Parade. So here goes: Erik Estrada is this year's host for a later broadcast on MyNetworkTV. What is MyNetworkTV? Susan Lucci as grand marshal is a good score, but have you heard of any of these other “stars”? Eric Braeden, Judith Chapman, Jeanne Cooper, Eileen Davidson, Hayley Erin, Sean Kanan, Kate Linder, Vanessa Marano, Kevin Schmidt and Yvonne Zima? Dear parade organizers, Guess what? Celebrities live here, some just a few minutes from the parade route? Have you tried hanging out at the Mayfair? How about taking a van to Runyon Canyon to recruit Jason Bateman before the parade. We're trying to help!
