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 and AMC+ are set to once again celebrate the holiday season with the return of “Best Christmas Ever,” beginning November 29th running through December 25th. National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation star Beverly D’Angelo will host this year’s “Best Christmas Ever,” offering helpful tips based on the hard-learned experiences found in this year’s film lineup. This season’s slate features over 55 titles and more than 575 hours of holiday programming in the days leading up to Christmas with AMC being the exclusive broadcast cable home in December to holiday favorites such as National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, The Polar Express, Four Christmases and Fred Claus.

AMC’s Best Christmas Ever will begin in November 2021

    Where is Elf? And why is planes, tranes and automobiles being played constantly? Elf is a Christmas staple in so many families households.
    Pleasefixthis line up and add Elf, and take out a few planes trades and automobiles.

    Please, understand, people, that AMC does not actually run this website. The schedule is not physically typed out by AMC, then posted to this website. If you wish to make a complaint with how AMC schedules their annual ‘Best Ever Christmas’ holiday programming, you should email their website instead. I can see a lot of you are angry or upset about this year’s schedule so far, but I think you all should just be happy someone has created this website to allow you to track your favorite holiday movies, whether it’s on AMC, Freeform, or another network. Thank you!

    AMC Always does this. It is most frustrating and very disappointing. I once complained direct to AMC and they fixed it. We shouldn’t have to do this to enjoy programming. Not sure who schedules for AMC – but they need to pay attention. Unacceptable.

      Agree when AMC started no commercials now more commercials than program. Best Christmas Ever would be if it was only Christmas programs not planes trains or other non holiday programs. Please listen.

    Amc may as well just quit with this along with october fear fest because it is the same lame hand full of movies everyday. How many bloody times can you watch xmas vacation, scrooged and idiocy like gremlins and planes trains Automobiles?? And the last 2 are not even xmas movies ffs. I am well aware that there are legal reasons such as copyright and whatnot but hell there is more than just 6 or 8 movies out there.

    Again this year AMC drops the Christmas spirit ball for so many by running White Christmas only 2 or 3 times at odd early morning hours, and yet such routine banal films available to see on other channels like Lampoons Christmas and Fred Claus are on AMC a dozen times. I will no longer be watching AMC and it’s now off my favorites list. I’ll buy WC. Good luck with your crap repeat programming.

    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!

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.

      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!!!

    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.

    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.
