  1. why have you stopped showing undercover Christmas for two years straight? I’m staying with hallmark channel from now on as Lifetime is no longer my Christmas movie channel of choice

  2. Disappointed you won’t be showing Undercover Cover Christmas and the Christmas Wish List. All of these great movies and you keep repeating the same movies.

  3. I wish Lifetime would bring back the movie “Borrowed Hearts”. That is my all time favorite holiday movie. It had Roma Downey in it!

  4. Becky’s question re Secret Santa with Jennie Garth and Stephen Eckhardt wasn’t answered. Whatever happened to this favorite, no longer aired and nowhere to be found on DVD?

  5. Have not seen One Special Night with James Garner and Julie Andrews this season. Any plans to run this movie before Christmas?

  6. Every year at Christmas time I check to see if The Christmas List will be in the holiday lineup and I could not find it. I know it originally aired on Lifetime and was surprised not to see such a wonderful Christmas movie left out year after year.

    1. I am guessing that this list is not completely filled in and updated just yet. For example, when I just checked Lifetime’s schedule (in my cable guide) for next week I saw a movie in the line-up that is not yet mentioned on the above list. So it’s possible that more titles will be added in before the season ends.

      I stumbled upon “The Christmas List” last year, but I cannot remember where I ran into it. It wasn’t Hallmark, of course, but I’m not sure if I saw it on Lifetime either. For some reason I seem to think it popped up on some other, unexpected channel — and it only aired once or twice.

  7. Someone mentioned Picking up and Dropping off! This was with Scott Wolf and hasn’t aired in years πŸ™

    IT was such a great movie and a shame they stopped airing it and you can’t buy the DVD!

  8. I would also love to see Undercover Christmas especially available on DVD, I would also like to see Holiday Affair with Cynthia Gibb and David James Elliott. Don’t know who put that movie out, but I haven’t found it anywhere for past decade maybe.

    1. I have looked for the Cynthia Gibb version of Holiday Affair for years!!! I can’t find it on TV and can’t find it on DVD. I would LOVE To be able to buy it. I’ve seen it for sale on VCR tape but want it on DVD!!!!!

  9. Why are you showing Christmas with the kranks so many times when you can show Undercover Christmas or the Christmas List. Why can’t you show what people want.

  10. I was hoping I would see the movie “The Christmas List” with Mimi Rodgers. That is such a wonderful movie. It’s hardly played anymore and is not available on dvd. I don’t see it listed anywhere to be played this year. What a shame.

  11. I will try to describe a movie I saw in a previous Christmas season and am asking if anyone knows the title. It is about a woman who has a car accident which causes amnesia, and spends the majority of the movie with a family she doesn’t recognize although they try to convince her she is their wife and mother. It runs in my mind the husband’s parents may have been divorced, but they visited together for a meal (Christmas Eve?) and their constant bickering (humorous to the viewer) revealed there was a good reason for their divorce. My viewing terminated prior to the end so I can assume how it ended, but I’d like to watch it again to see the ending. Anyone know about this movie?

    1. Jessica, Christmas in Boston normally airs on ABC Family but is not showing this year. Recipe for a Perfect Christmas aired last year on Lifetime but is not yet included in this years schedule.

  12. I would love to see Borrowed Hearts this year. Lifetime hasn’t showed this movie in years one of my favorites.
    There is also a good Christmas movie with Melissa Gilbert and Tim Mathison that hasn’t scheduled in the schedule for years.

  13. Hi, why did is Undercover Christmas no longer aired on your channel? Judging by the comments below, it is a favorite among many of your viewers. I love, love, love that one, was so sad it wasn’t on last year, and now it’s not listed again this year? Not only that, it’s not available on DVD. Please let us fans know. I see no comment by Mrs Claus on any of the previous inquires. Thanks!

  14. Do you know if there are any scheduled airings of Christmas in Paradise or Holiday High School Reunion? Can you tell me what ever happened to Secret Santa with Jennie Garth? It seems this movie does not get aired anymore.

  15. Will lifetime be showing “Christmas In The City” this year? I believe it was a new movie for 2013 and I LOVED it! Accidentally deleted it off the Dr and I’m really wanting to rewatch it this season.

  16. Is it my imagination, or are there fewer new Lifetime Christmas movies this year (there were more in previous years)?

    Also… it doesn’t look like a particularly strong crop of movies compared to previous years. Last year there were at least a couple of good ones.

    ABC Family’s one new movie of the year doesn’t look very good either.

    Oh well, at least I probably won’t have to worry about making space for any of the new Lifetime or ABC Family movies on the DVR — I have my hands full with Hallmark, Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, Ion, INSP and UP!

  17. I am wondering when The Real St. Nick starring Torrey DeVitto will air again. I missed it in its original airing in 2012 and really want to see it now. Thanks so much!

  18. As i’m looking for a christmas movie i think had jill ikenberry it was about a guy and his daughter come back to his home town as his father has a heart attack i think it was really nice.I think it was a lifetime movie the actress was the sheriff there i believe and she had blonde hair i thought it was a town without christmas but,it didn’t come up i’m trying to find this.

  19. What is the name of the Christmas movie that the woman lost her husband in the service and she has a little boy and she especially loves Christmas. Her boyfriend thinks that is strange and they start having problems. Her Mother-in-Law comes to stay, along with her ex boyfriend, a friend of her husband’s who falls for her sister, her boyfriend’s ex who the father tried to make believe they were still an item. At the end boyfriend proposes and he goes on porch to await for her answer. Boyfriends father is the man that played in Taxi

  20. What happened to the one with James Garner and Julie Andrews….they meet and fall in love after being trapped by a snow storm….great movie…I didn’t see it once on tv this year!

  21. When will Undercover Christmas be on this year??? I’ve been scrolling through Lifetime everyday since before Thanksgiving hoping to find it. I’ve tried to buy it but Lifetime hasn’t made it available for purchase. I can only find it for sale on sketchy bootleg type sites & don’t want to get involved with that. Please air it and make it available for purchase from Lifetime. Thank you.

  22. I think you do this every year. you pick out a handful of xmas movies and you show them over and over and over again. get real, I know there are more Christmas shows than that. your station is really getting boring. you did ask. now please do something about it. thank you

  23. Love, love Undercover Christmas, Eve’s Christmas, Comfort and Joy, The Road to Christmas and Holiday Switch with Nicole Eggert. Please play more of these! I also love a few that no one plays anymore and I can’t understand why. These are “The Christmas List with Mimi Rogers”, “Christmas in my Hometown (A HOliday for love) with Melissa Gilbert and Travis Tritt” and “Borrowed Hearts” with Roma Downey and Eric McCormack. These movies are awesome and they don’t get enough air time at all! Please bring back the old favorites too!

    1. “The Christmas List was purchased by Disney from Shavic a few years ago and Disney has it locked in the Vault which means we will be old and gray before it is aired (if aired at all. and I think it is terrible that Disney would do such a thing to a wonderful movie, We purchased a copy on line. and get to watch it every year. you will find a lot of company who will sell you you a copy.

  24. Does anyone know a movie where the girls relives the same day. she wakes up in bed and her dog is in the bed also and she is some home shopping channel is on.
    there is an old woman her neighbor and she tries to give her cookies and after some replays she is in the older woman’s apt and helping her make cookies
    and there is a woman she knows and a nerdy looking guy who likes her friend and there is a scene where he is untangling lights and after replays he gets the courage to ask this woman out.
    and the featured woman was supposed to be on a blind date and after replays she sets up the guy with his right match in the bar. can’t place who any of the actors are but it is driving me crazy what the movie is??????

  25. What is your 2013 Christmas Eve and DayTV programing schedule for Lifetime and LMN channels, especially your made for TV Holiday movies. Most other channels have their schedules posted, including Hallmark channel, which also produces new Holiday movies every year. I plan on hunkering down in my warm condo both days watching holiday movies. I don’t want to watch any of your movies ahead of time, if I know what your Christmas Eve and Day movie schedule will be.

  26. What’s the movie where this lady and her two kids go to Mexico or the Bahamas for Christmas and then She meets a man and they fall in love (of course) it’s alright if you don’t know I probably didn’t make to much sense

      1. Searched for Undercover Christmas for over six weeks….I have TimeWarnerCable and we have the ability to search up to two weeks in advance….went to every channel every day for two weeks in advance….ION, FAM, LMN, LMNW, Hallmark, HMN, looking for it….we had about 8 channels this year giving us Christmas movies….it was the best 6 weeks leading up to Christmas ever…..loved every minute of those movies….thank you to all the stations for giving us those wonderful movies…saw Christmas Consultant for the first time this year…really funny great family movie!!! Not once did they play Undercover Christmas…so am buying it on the internet! Great movie, why didn’t they play it?

  27. I was wondering if Call Me Claus will be showing this year. I love that movie. It came on last year, the day after Christmas, which was a bummer.

  28. Since changing to AT&T u-verse, we no longer get Hallmark channel. Any chance that any of the movies scheduled will be on Lifetime or ABC family.

  29. I would love to see the two movies aired The Christmas Box and the prequeal it Timepiece these are two wonderful movies and very heart warming for the holiday season.Thank You for any help you can provide

    1. Hi Cheryl,

      Fortunately, I got The Christmas Box on Amazon some time ago since it’s very rarely shown. As for The Timepiece, I’ve not tried to find that one….it maybe on Amazon.

      Happy Holidays

  30. I am wondering about a movie called “One Special Night” with Julie Andrews and James Garner.
    Do you know if it will be airing this year?

  31. Will the Holiday Spin come on again soon? It didn’t show much and I missed it on Christmas day.

    Thank you for any help you can give me!

    1. Hi Janice, we are not expecting it to be on again this year. Hopefully they put it on DVD or at least air it again next year.

    1. Hi Kathy – I just found out that Finding John Christmas will air on the Hallmark Channel on Monday, December 3rd at 4pm ET

    2. finding john christmas is being shown on hallmark movies and mysteries channel. It has been on a few times already but will be shown several times more before christmas.
