'TIS THE SEASON FOR HALLMARK CHANNEL; NETWORK'S ANNUAL "COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS" EVENT KICKS OFF TO A STRONG START WITH FIRST ORIGINAL HOLIDAY PREMIERE SCORING A 2.1 HH RTG.

'Tis the Season for Love Becomes the Network's Most-Watched Premiere in 2015-to-Date

Hallmark Channel's highly-anticipated programming franchise, Countdown to Christmas, officially launched this weekend with the original premiere of 'Tis the Season For Love, which averaged a 2.1 HH rating and 2.3 million total viewers. The debut became the #1 household-rated cable movie of the week. In the Sunday, November 1st 8pm time period, the movie also ranked #2 in ratings and delivery among households and total viewers and boosted Hallmark Channel to be the 2nd highest household-rated cable network in prime time for the day. On social media, 'Tis the Season for Love was #1 among all original movie premieres on cable and broadcast for the day in tweets and unique audience. The opening weekend for Countdown to Christmas and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries' Most Wonderful Movies of Christmas combined reached 18.1 million unduplicated viewers.

"Over the last 5 years, Hallmark Channel has become the undisputed leader in holiday programming and viewers can't seem to get enough - so this year, we are raising the bar with our largest and most ambitious slate yet," said Michelle Vicary, EVP, Programming & Network Publicity, Crown Media Family Networks. "Sunday night's results are an excellent way to kick off the campaign and we look forward to once again delivering on our promise for the very best in seasonal entertainment."

In 'Tis the Season For Love, Hanna Baker (Sarah Lancaster) is stuck in New York City without her friends at Christmas time. She decides to return home to the quaint small town she escaped 10 years before and finds a place far different than the hamlet she left. She suddenly finds performing possibilities and even romance that kind of blow her away. Will the holidays prove to be as magical for Hanna as they appear, or is it doomed to disappear as quickly as it arrived for a lady who is ready to take chances she could never have imagined a decade before. Then again, this is the kind of thing that seems to happen during the Christmas season all the time.
