The film also topped the network's previous bests in key demo delivery among W25-54 (154K); A25-54 (195K); and P2+ (1.004MM).

Based on the heartfelt autobiographical New York Times best-selling book of the same name, The Color of Rain tells inspirational real-life story of two young parents, Michael Spehn and Gina Kell. Living in the same small community, Michael and Gina each lose their respective spouses to cancer just six weeks apart. Devastated by grief, Kell a mother of 2 boys, played by Lacey Chabert (Party of Five, Mean Girls), and Spehn father to 3 children of his own, played by Warren Christie (Alphas, Happy Town), begin to forge an unlikely friendship, ultimately falling in love and uniting their broken families as one.
