The Top 15 Most-Watched Hallmark Christmas Movies, According to Viewers
We’ve got our eye on the Countdown to Christmas pretty much all year long, but we know it’s getting close when our time spent thinking about which Hallmark movies we’re most excited to watch with some hot chocolate and which all-new movies from the 2017 lineup we’re most in love with already gets increasingly more noticeable day by day. In addition to the 21 new original movies airing on the Hallmark Channel and the 12 new original movies airing on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries this year, there are still the faithful films we’ve seen before (perhaps…more than once) and will happily be watching again. The highest-rated, most-watched Hallmark movies dominate Christmastime with their small-town charm, revolving door of quirky, sweet-natured characters, and never-failing promise of a heart-warming romance—and we can’t get enough. We had a little elf whisper in our ear, and apparently these are the top Hallmark Christmas movies with the highest household viewership ever.
