Hallmark Channel's 'Christmas Under Wraps' Becomes

Hallmark Channel continues to rack up good numbers for its holiday-themed movies, with Saturday’s “Christmas Under Wraps” locking up the largest-ever audience for a telecast on the network.

According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, “Christmas Under Wraps” averaged roughly 5.8 million total viewers, including 1.2 million women 25-54, 1.3 million adults 18-49 and 1.6 million adults 25-54.

The pic, starring Candace Cameron Bure, stands as the No. 2 most-watched original cable movie of 2014 — behind only Lifetime’s “Flowers in the Attic” from January (6.06 million).

On Sunday, “One Christmas Eve,” the first Hallmark Hall of Fame original to air on Hallmark Channel and not a broadcast network, averaged roughly 3.6 million viewers. By comparison, ABC’s year-ago holiday HHOF movie “Christmas in Conway” averaged 6.5 million viewers.

  6. Brian Roberts says:

    No one does Thanksgiving through Christmas better.

    The problem — Hallmark isn’t relevant the other 47 weeks of the year, where they aren’t even a Top 20 network, and all of their “original” movies are produced by outside firms that maintain distribution rights after the initial contract. Hence, all these movies end up on other platforms.
