In August, the network treated viewers to one of their favorite genres on Hallmark Channel with a month-long line-up of mystery movies, including its Mystery Movie franchises: �Mystery Woman,� �Jane Doe� and �McBride.� In September, Hallmark Channel saw impressive ratings growth despite the broadcast television fall premieres.
