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 the end of November to December 25th, featuring a mix of popular Christmas and family films, along with other acquired holiday themed TV specials.

AMC’s Best Christmas Ever will begin in November 2022

    W-O-W…. Taking a look at the absolutely clueless, ignorant, simpleton comments here, complaining about what a specific channel shows, & not having a clue that this message board & website have absolutely NOTHING to do with AMC (Or any other channel for that matter!) shows exactly how people can fall for trump & vote maga! The levels of stupidity here & lack of basic common sense are shocking! Do you not look at other networks? Do you not look around this very website to see the schedules of all things Christmas? Do you not own dvds or streaming players so you can watch whatever you want, whenever you want? Good Gawd man!

      Someone at AMC Network is scheduling this programming. So yes – the programming on this schedule has everything to do with AMC.

        The classics will always be my favorite Christmas movies. Would really like to see them scheduled more than the newer movies many of which are themed with a lot of holiday romance. Repetition of any program is good when it draws and keeps your attention.
        Unfortunately not everyone is going to be happy with every movie scheduled.
