The Pleasure Seekers: Last airing this year on FMC ~ December 28th, 2011

This coming Wednesday marks the last scheduled airing for Pamela's 1964 film, The Pleasure Seekers on the Fox Movie Channel. If you do not know Fox Movie Channel is making some modifications to their schedule.

Beginning in January they will be airing newer films from the Fox film library with limited commercials under the banner FX Movie Channel. This new format will air every day from 3 pm until 3 am. Their older films will continue to air from 3 am until 3 pm. I don't know if the older films will have limited commercial breaks as well. 

It seems to me that Fox Movie Channel is slowly going the AMC route. The only classic, commercial free cable network to stand now is TCM. 

With all of these changes I don't really know if FMC plans on continuing to air The Pleasure Seekers, but they have been more than generous in it's airings of the film for the past 3 years, airing it commercial free and in it's original aspect ratio giving many like myself a chance to preserve it as Fox themeslves has yet to see fit to release it in any home video format here in the U.S.

If you haven't done so already rev up those DVR's for the film's December 28th airing on FMC at 11:30 am.
