Hallmark’s new Christmas movie, “Three Wise Men & a Baby,” has broken a Hallmark viewing record. In terms of same-day, live viewing, it’s now the most-watched Hallmark movie of not just the year, but all the way through 2019.

‘Three Wise Men & a Baby’ Earned More than 3.6 Million Live Viewers

The Twitter account @SleepyKittyPawusing statistics from ShowbuzzDaily, compiled the ratings for Hallmark’s Christmas movies as of November 16. These numbers are live viewing numbers only and do not include Live+2, Live+3, or any other delayed views after the premiere.

The ratings revealed that “Three Wise Men & a Baby” had rocketed into first place as Hallmark’s most-watched movie of all of 2022, including both Christmas and non-Christmas movies. But it also broke records reaching back to 2019.

SleepyKittyPaw shared: “What happens when you team up Paul Campbell, Tyler Hynes & Andrew Walker for Christmas? You get Hallmark’s highest ratings not just of year, but since 2019! THREE WISE MEN AND A BABY had 3.626 million viewers, .31 in key demo, and was Saturday’s most-watched non-football program.”

In terms of live viewers, the movie brought in 3.626 million views and ranked .31 in 18-49 demographic.

For comparison, Hallmark’s first “The Wedding Veil” movie clocked in with 3.394 million live viewers, and hit .29 in the 18-49 demographic. At the time, this put it higher than all of the top 10 movies for Hallmark in 2021.

“Christmas at Castle Hart” brought in 3.31 million last year as Hallmark’s top 2021 live-viewed movie. “My Christmas Family Tree” was next at 3.27 million. The new movie starring Tyler Hynes, Paul Campbell, and Andrew Walker beat all of them.
