Hallmark Channel Christmas B-Movies a Big Hit

Viewers aren’t just opting for traditional television fare this Christmas, the Hallmark Channel is having a “banner ratings season” with it’s marathon of Christmas movies.  The movies are formulaic with starring actors people often ask “What ever happened to…?”

Take “Finding Christmas,” (8 p.m. Tuesday, 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday) where you’ll find Tricia Helfer, last seen as a sultry cyborg in “Battlestar Galactica.” Or a double feature with ’80s icon Steve Guttenberg and Crystal “Wings” Bernard, “Single Santa Seeks Mrs. Claus” and its sequel, “Meet the Santas” (4 and 6 p.m. Tuesday).

“The Santa Switch” (7:30 a.m. on Wednesday) sees Sean Astin, late of “Lord of the Rings,” as Santa’s suit and specs-wearing elf, bringing the spirit of the season to a recalcitrant department store Claus.

Former tween star Haylie Duff is the star of “Hats Off to Christmas,” (10 p.m. Tuesday, 9 a.m. Wednesday) playing — what else? — a busy single mom who falls for her boss’ son, eventually learning that love trumps business.

Sound corny? Maybe so but Hallmark had the #1 movie of the week for seven weeks in a row this season…with an impressive 4 million viewers.
