It looks like everyone was tuned in to Hallmark Channel’s Countdown to Christmas premiere weekend.
According to reports, the annual television event was #1 on cable for the entire week.
To kick-off premiere week, the network premiered two original holiday movies Saturday and Sunday, “Jingle Bell Bride” and “Chateau Christmas.”
Together with flagship sister network Hallmark Movies & Mysteries’ ‘Miracles of Christmas’ Saturday and Sunday night original movie premieres, “Christmas Tree Lane” and “Deliver by Christmas”, both networks reached a combined total of nearly 16 million unduplicated Total Viewers from Friday through Sunday. Additionally, the networks delivered 2 of the Top 3 entertainment cable networks for the weekend among Households and Women 18+.
I’m a Hallmarkie, so this is awesome news to me! My television flips between MSNBC (because of the presidential election) and the Hallmark Channel this time of year. My favorite Christmas movie on the network is still Crown for Christmas. It’s about a New York maid who get’s fired from her job working at a hotel, only to get hired temporarily as a governess to a young girl who’s father is to become king.
