  • Donna says:

    Lifetime Christmas has completely left out all the old favorites this year. Comfort and Joy, Home by Christmas, Recipe for a Perfect Christmas, Holiday Switch, Undercover Christmas, Unanswered Prayers. So disappointing! I tried to buy Comfort and Joy, but Amazon wanted $100 for it. Seriously?? Please bring them back for Christmas 2018!!

  • Deanna says:

    I’m hated this years line up!!!!! I want to see holiday switch, comfort and joy, home for Christmas, Christmas shoes! STOP Repeating the same movies!!!, play them all!! If I see wrapped up Christmas, the holiday one more time! Lifetime use to be a favorite. I enjoyed it. Not anymore. I hardly ever can turn it on it. I watch LMN for other movies. Please show us our holiday favorites along with newer ones.

  • Erin says:

    PLEASE play Holiday Switch. It shows a mother and wifes life as it is, but then what it would have been if another choice was made. It shows the true meaning of xmas. Reminds us all its not about money but about love and family! You could maybe swith out one of the above movies on the schedule for HOLIDAY SWITCH! WHO ELSE IS WITH ME!!!

    • Anonymous says:

      I agree along with these other movie’s, Home by Christmas, Christmas List and Comfort and Joy etc. The 2017 movies are not like the older movie’s! The one I do love that was from 2016 is Heaven Sent (such an incredible inspirational movie). Get with it Lifetime!

    • Anonymous says:

      I love holiday switch and look forward to it every year!!! So sad and disappointing!!! Please bring it back!

  • Detta says:

    If you have You Tube you can watch every single one of the above mentioned movies. The Christmas Shoe movie and it’s sequel The Christmas Blessing are available too. I found the best holiday movie stations to be ION TV and THE HALLMARK CHANNEL. Happy Holidays EVERYONE!!

  • Crystal says:

    Lifetime, please bring back Holiday Switch, and a Home by Christmas with Linda Hamilton, 2016 list was so much better than 2017 ,

  • Karen says:

    I’m so disappointed with the Lifetime network this year. Every season, I look forward to all of the Christmas movies and this year they aren’t airing that many. When we were selecting our cable package, I had to have Lifetime because it was my favorite Christmas movie channel. I’m willing to give them one more season in the hopes that the ghosts of the past, present and future pay them a visit. If they don’t air a lot more holiday movies next year, I say “Bah, Humbug” and bid farewell to Lifetime. So sad. Merry Christmas to all.

    • Angie says:

      I agree. Can’t believe Holiday Switch isn’t on! So disappointed.

    • Erin says:

      I thought the same thing! Its here and there theyre playing some xmas movies but not many. Little women LA and Married at First Sight isnt my idea of getting into the holiday season. I mean it seems Hallmark is playing them constantly. If were gonna have countdown to christmas than lets have xmas movies playing 24/7! C’mon lifetime it’s once a year!!! 🙂

  • Duane says:

    Please show Home by Christmas and Road to Christmas with Jennifer Grey. Great movies that should be on schedule.

  • Anonymous says:

    I wish you would play The Christmas List with Mimi Rogers.

  • Anonymous says:

    I’m so disappointed some of my favorites aren’t airing this year….An Unlikely Angel with Dolly Parton. The Christmas Box, and Home by Christmas…

  • Mittie says:

    Put crazy for christmas back on for the holiday this are the time for it. Enjoy looking at it. Thanks

  • Tracy says:

    Thank goodness I have a lot of these movies on dvd, but unfortunately I don’t have Undercover Christmas❤️❤️or Ebbie. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE air these movies this Christmas season & make them available on dvd. Also, PLEASE make Holiday High School Reunion available on dvd again!! I know I had it, but it seems to have disappeared into thin air😢 It’s driving me crazy, esp since it isn’t the only one that has gone poof on me😢😢

  • Laura says:

    Would like to see a home for Christmas with Linda Hamilton and Kristen’s Christmas past. These movies should be offered every Christmas.

    • Tammie lewis says:

      Please lifetime bring these Christmas classics back this month 12/2017, Christmas caper , holiday switch , An Smokey mountain Christmas with Dolly Parton, An Christmas shoes I love theses movie I always watch lifetime it’s my favorite channel .

    • Anonymous says:

      I would like to see Christmas Homecoming aired more than once. A very inspirational movie for military families as there are so many families that has been effected and mirrored of that movie. Christmas Homecoming

    • cathy von sivers says:

      Yes I love Linda Hamilton home by Christmas. Sad it’s not on this yewar

    • Brenda Estes says:

      Haven’t watched much lifetime at all since September, except the guide waiting for Home by Christmas, with Linda Hamilton
      Such a wonderful movie wait for it every year. What a huge disappointment this year.

    Last updated on 11/12/17-today is Dec. 4-no Christmas movies listed for December 2017.

  • elizabeth kelly says:

    Please, show Comfort and Joy this year..It wasnt shown last year..Love that movie..Thank you

  • Karen says:

    I guess I’ll never see Holiday in Handcuffs ever again. I always thought that one was so cute.

  • Nathan says:

    Every year Lifetime turns into a 24/7 Christmas channel. No movies and no other shows. Obsession is evil. I can see 2 or 3 Xmas shows a day (even that is too much). However, my family & friends now feel that we have one less cable channel to watch.

  • Anonymous says:

    Comfort and Joy, Home by Christmas, and The Christmas Box

  • Jaimie says:

    When is “Holiday Switch” going to be on? And when is “Home For Christmas” going to be on?

  • Linda Hudson says:

    Holiday in handcuffs is my husband’s favorite. Will it be aired this year?

  • Anonymous says:

    I WOULD LOVE TO SEE l, ON THE 2nd day of Christmas. You don’t play any of the good ones!

  • Elizabeth Forster says:

    So glad your email playing Heaven Sent. Love ❤️ this movie. Would be nice to air at earlier times as well.

  • Kathy says:

    When are you going to show the novie ‘The Flight Before Christmas.”

  • A Fan says:

    please show the movie “The Fllght Before Christmas?

  • Jan says:

    Will Comfort and Joy be on this year? Also will Road to Christmas re-air before Christmas?

  • Blair says:

    It’s already December 12th and ”Christmas in Paradise” has not aired yet this year. Hope it does.

  • Jeanette says:

    Will The Christmas Consultant be aired?

  • Jeanette says:

    Will The Christmas Consultant be aired?

  • Desiree says:

    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

  • When will under cover Christmas be on? I love this movie. Thank you

    • Anonymous says:

      I love this movie too. Lifetime doesn’t air it very often, and it’s not available on DVD. Hope they squeeze it into their schedule.

  • Claire says:

    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.

  • Pug Lover says:

    When will you be airing Ebbie’s Story with Susan Lucci? It is one of my favorite holiday movies and I love Susan Lucci.

  • Joanne C. says:

    Will you be showing The Christmas Shoes this year? How about Stealing Christmas?

  • Nikki says:

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

    • Frances says:

      I found a dvd copy on ebay.
      That’s the only way I get to see if every Christmas or
      whenever.
      Good luck

    • Anonymous says:

      My whole family’s favorite. Please show during early evening hours.

    • Sandy says:

      I love that movie !!!

    • Lynette Potter says:

      There are actually 3 parts to this story…not sure which network can or can’t play the movies. The first one is “The Christmas Shoes”, the second “The Christmas Hope” and the third “The Christmas Blessing”. I’ll never understand why they don’t play the three of them back to back. It is a beautiful story! I hope that the powers that be we’ll get together and work it .

      • Anonymous says:

        The Christmas Hope does not have the same people in it so I don’t think there are 3 parts. I think it is the Christmas Shoes and Christmas Blessing.

    • Martha says:

      I would love to see Borrowed Hearts run again, it’s been years since it’s been on – one of my favorites!

  • Cat says:

    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?

  • Virginia says:

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

  • Lydia says:

    I would have loved to see Holiday Spin as well. With so many repeats of others there has to be a way to sneak it in.

  • Blair says:

    Disappointed that I don’t see “Christmas in Paradise” listed for this year.

  • Michelle says:

    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.

    • LuvChristmas says:

      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.

    • TracyB says:

      I know! It’s my favorite too!!! Since you cannot buy it, the only way to see it is on TV.

  • Diane says:

    I would like to see Undercover Christmas. That is a good movie. I didn’t see it last year. Please play my movie.

  • stephanie says:

    Someone mentioned Picking up and Dropping off! This was with Scott Wolf and hasn’t aired in years 🙁

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

  • Lu says:

    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.

    • LOIS says:

      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!!!!!

      • klg1956 says:

        Holiday Affair movie was a remake of Janet Leigh and Robert Mitchum…..but I love the Cynthia Gibb and the guy from JAG, David James Elliot so much better. Wonderful Christmas movie as casting was the best and they should play it. I have them all on VHS and am converting them to DVD. Undercover Christmas, Comfort and Joy, Holiday in Handcuffs, Christmas Visitor, so many wonderful movies. Kudos to Hallmark and Lifetime for giving us these wonderful weeks of Christmas. And Christmas in July too. The Homecoming with Richard Thomas is on UP channel, so many good movies on UP this year too.

  • Claire says:

    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.

  • Lesley says:

    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.

  • Herb Klug says:

    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?

  • Diane says:

    I would love to see the movie “picking up and dropping off” again. This is one of my favorite Christmas shows..

  • Ginger Beebe says:

    For those of you who may be interested, Call Me Claus, comes on LMN, tonight!

  • Claire Strini says:

    I would like to see Undercover Christmas and Christmas List. Love these movies. Thank you

  • Jessica K says:

    What about Christmas in Boston and A Recipe Fir A Wonderful Christmas? 😉

    • Mrs. Claus says:

      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.

  • Maria Di gangi says:

    I just love Lifetimes Christmas Movies!!

  • joyce wiley says:

    when are you playing christmas in paradise

  • lucy says:

    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.

  • Rose says:

    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!

  • Becky says:

    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.

  • Ginger Beebe says:

    Had no reply to my earlier post, so I was wondering if Call Me Claus will be airing this year?

  • Amanda says:

    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.

  • jean says:

    Is any channel showing “Mrs. Santa Claus” with Angela Lansbury this year?

  • Anonymous says:

    So disappointed that Lifetime isn’t showing more Christmas movies!

  • Emily says:

    Would like to see going to grandmas house with marry kate and ashley olsen do you know what channel it’s on

  • LuvChristmas says:

    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!

  • Kat says:

    Would love to see A Holiday to Remember with Connue Selleca. do you know if it’s playing this year.

  • tammy says:

    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!

  • julie says:

    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.

  • margo helms says:

    would like to see Love at the Christmas table. hope it will be on again this year…wonderful movie…especially the dance scene out doors

  • Toni Freda says:

    Hi, when will Love at the Christmas Table come on?
    Is that the name of it?
    I love that movie!!

  • Anonymous says:

    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

  • Kathy says:

    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!

  • Jacquelyn says:

    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.

  • janie says:

    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

  • Deanna says:

    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!

    • Dave says:

      “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.

  • Christine says:

    Will Undercover Christmas be aired? I can’t find it. I hope so I love that movie!

  • Mary says:

    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??????

    • Mary says:

      Found it. 12 Dates of Christmas

      • Tracy says:

        One of my FAVORITES!!! It’s available on Netflix thank goodness!! As an avid Christmas movie collector, it’s a HUGE bummer that it has never been available on dvd. Another fave from ABC Fam is Three Days w/Kristin Davis which isn’t available on dvd either😢 Now they don’t even air it. I think all channels should rethink their schedules-there’s enough time to play all their Christmas movies-old & new & they should make all of them available on dvd. I’ve def learned my lesson for those that are on DVD to make sure I scoop them up before they stop making them available!

  • Keith Gunkel says:

    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.

  • seuss says:

    Love Lifetime Christmas movies. Personal faves are The Road to Christmas and Holiday High School Reunion!

  • frances says:

    what is the christmas movie where a girl is a caterer for the guy she falls in love with?

  • Kari says:

    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

  • Sam Goguen says:

    Can you please tell me when Undercover Christmas will be airing this year? Thanks and Merry Christmas

        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?

    • RM says:

      Please let me know as well! Undercover Christmas is my fav lifetime christmas movie!

  • Ginger Beebe says:

    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.

  • Kathy says:

    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.

  • Cheryl Blazek says:

    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

    • Kris says:

      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
