ABC Family locks up weekend cable

12 December 2007 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Three cable networks saw solid returns from original holiday movies during the weekend, with ABC Family's Holiday in Handcuffs leading the pack with nearly 7 million viewers tuning in.

Meanwhile, initial projections are showing that Disney Channel and USA Network are in a tight race for this year's total-viewers crown among basic cable networks, while USA is leading TBS in the key demo of adults 18-49.

Handcuffs averaged 6.7 million total viewers from 8-10 p.m. Sunday, making it ABC Family's most-watched telecast ever, according to Nielsen Media Research. The movie, starring Mario Lopez and Melissa Joan Hart, also set network records in key demos, including adults 18-49 (3.2 million viewers), adults 18-34 (1.6 million), women 18-49 (2.1 million) and women 18-34 (1.1 million) and ranked as Sunday's No. 1 cable telecast in those demos. The movie peaked in its final quarter-hour with 7.8 million viewers.

For the week, Handcuffs was the second-most-watched cable telecast behind ESPN's record-breaking Monday Night Football telecast.

Lifetime and Hallmark Channel also got good news with their original holiday movies. Lifetime's "Lost Holiday: The Jim and Suzanne Shemwell Story," starring Jami Gertz and Dylan Walsh, averaged 3.6 million viewers 9-11 p.m. Sunday. Before Lost Holiday, a 7 p.m. airing of the Rob Lowe/Kimberly Williams-Paisley telefilm The Christmas Shoes averaged 3.9 million viewers, becoming Lifetime's most-watched weekend movie of the year.

Meanwhile, Hallmark Channel's The Note, starring Genie Francis and Ted McGinley, averaged 3.9 million viewers in its debut at 9-11 p.m. Saturday. The Note stands as Hallmark's third-most-watched original movie premiere ever. »
