Hallmark Movies & Mysteries' first original summer holiday movie premiere, "Home for Christmas Day," which aired as part of the network's "Gold Crown Christmas" stunt, averaged a 1.7 HH rating and 1.3 million Total Viewers.

Both events air in conjunction with Hallmark Cards' annual summer unveiling of their newest line of Christmas Keepsake Ornaments.

In "The Christmas Cure," an emergency room doctor returns home for Christmas after many years to find that her father has decided to retire. After reuniting with her high school sweetheart and spending an emotional Christmas with her family, she must decide if she will stay in her hometown and take over her father's practice.
