Hallmark Channel received its Thanksgiving feast early this year when its Saturday night premiere of "An Old-Fashioned Thanksgiving" attracted 5.2 million viewers delivering a 3.2 household rating and nearly 2.8 million homes, making it the highest-rated cable movie of the day and week. The original movie, starring Jacqueline Bisset, also ranked #1 in the time period (9-11 p.m., ET/PT) for household and total viewer ratings and deliveries, and boosted the network to rank #1 in Prime Time for the day among HH (2.8) and W25-54 (1.4) ratings.

The original holiday movie also ranked in the top 10 in the time period for key demo ratings and delivery, including:
