AMC Best Christmas Ever

AMC Best Christmas Ever

AMC had typically aired a rotating lineup of five to six Christmas movies during the holiday season. In 2018, the channel introduced a more extensive holiday lineup branded as “Best Christmas Ever” running from November 26th to December 25th, featuring a mix of popular Christmas and family films, along with other acquired specials.

AMC’s Best Christmas Ever will begin in November 2020

    I stayed up to see White Christmas at 2:30 this morning, and it wasn’t on….Groundhog Day was!! That was very disappointing. Is it still going to be on the 13th??

  • Natalie Bosslady says:

    WHERE IS MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET 1947 BLACK AND WHITE OR COLOR VERSION THIS HURTS MY HEART THIS IS A CHILDHOOD MOVIE AND I DONT SEE IT AIRING ON TV JUST SAD!!!

    • Disne says:

      Where is the 1947 version of miracle on 34th street? The 1994 version is awful. Also should show other older classic Christmas movies and not the newer crappy movies.

      • Christmas TV Admin says:

        The 1947 version is available on Disney+ if you have it. I do not see it on the AMC schedule for 2020. If that changes I will update above.

  • Michael says:

    All of these wonderful Christmas movies, and every single one of you have commented something negative about what is or isn’t being broadcast. Networks can’t just show whatever movies they want. They have to have licenses, permission, etc. Just enjoy the movies and quit complaining. Merry Christmas!

  • My 98 year old mother loves to watch Miracle on 34th Street. I could not find it on your 2020 Christmas movie lineup. Please let me know when it is going to air. She doesn’t have that many Christmases left and she will not enjoy the Christmas season as much if she cant see this movie. She lives in an assisted living facility and has access to tv but not to a DVR. HELP!!

    I can’t fathom that the stations would forget about the movies that made CHRISTMAS, what it should be. Good will,
    Peace on Earth towards all. Let’s get with it stations and remember that good CHRISTMAS movies are out there. They don’t have to be the only ones that millenials remember. If you don’t play the classics, they will never know how good life can really be.

  • so disappointed you can’t run white christmas at least once at 8:00. I like christmas vacation but you don’t have to run it at 8 and then again at 10. also what happened to scrooge with george c scott? These are such christmas classics.

    Shame on AMC. Your programmer is losing touch with the classics.White Christmas with it’s amazing color, great story that starts the holiday season and you’ve lost sight of the fact that AMC USED to make it their Thanksgiving kick the holiday off movie.
    You are not giving me much reason to watch your channel at all. So sad that you over play some movies and have forgotten the classics that put you in the limelight. Too bad

    • I agree. I don’t know who is doing their Christmas programming these days but they are doing a terrible job!! The nasty Four Christmases over the classic White Christmas??? Give me a break!!! White Christmas use to be AMC’s “golden boy” of Christmas movies for the Christmas season. Now they hardly show it at all!! It’s the one that all their viewers clammer for yet they don’t show any more!! It is a real true classic!! A true staple for the Christmas Season!!! Why they have stopped showing it very much is far beyond me and they never show it in prime time any more!! I think Four Christmases is a about as gross a Christmas movie as they can show!!! Yet they show it all the time!! There are a few others they show as well that are not appropriate. And will someone tell me what in the heck Groundhog’s Day has to do with Christmas? – yuck!!! Another few spots that could be filled by White Christmas!!!

  • When miracle on 34th st. 1947 edition on.

      I hope so it is a good flick. Id personally like to know where A Christmas Story and Home Alone are. Not sure why Gremlins and Planes Trains and Automobiles are constantly on. AMC needs to start thinking.

  • Santa Claus says:

    What does Gremlins and Wizard of OZ or Planes, Trains, and Automobiles…have to do with Christmas??
    Just because it was filmed with Christmas as a backdrop to the movie does not mean it’s an actual “Christmas” movie. If we are gonna go down that route we might as well include Die Hard, Lethal Weapon, The Nightmare before Christmas, and Krampus.

    Play some of the Good Ol’ Favorites that just make it feel like Christmas, it’s bad enough that they have taken Christmas music off the air we don’t need to lose the great movies too! HO,HO,HO!!!

    Why do you run White Christmas in the middle of the night? We need to see that movie on the weekends during the day for those of us that still work. Love the Rankin and Bass shows, keep them coming!! No one plays them anymore but AMC. Best Christmas Carol is with George C. Scott! Please play that during daytime weekend hours too.

  • Gail Meigs says:

    When is WHITE CHRISTMAS going to be on? That movie puts me in the Christmas spirit every year. Also, CHRISTMAS CHRONICLES is the 2nd best movie. I would love to see that on too. Would they be advertised to be seen? I don’t want to miss either one. Please play both for an older senior citizen and the new generations.

    One thing I’d like to know is why A Christmas Story is hardly ever on. It’s one of the best classic Christmas movies ever. AMC is doing the same thing with this as they did with Fear Fest, showing the same crap over and over again.

  • Erica says:

    I’m so tired of all the stations playing the same movies on over and over. There is no variety. Does anyone remember Santa clause the movie? From the 80’s That is a true movie that would make any kid believe in Santa. All these stations follow the path that every other channel does. So sad. Not like when we were kids.

    My friends and myself grew up watching an old movie entitled Junior Miss with Peggy Ann Garner, during the Christmas vacation. it would be nice for a new generation to see this movie. put some holiday movies on with limited commercials, that would be a nice treat
