2019’s Kelly Rowland-led ‘Merry Liddle Christmas’ movie was such a ratings winner for Lifetime the network rebooted the franchise for a part 2 – 2020’s ‘Merry Liddle Christmas Wedding.’
Coming as the first holiday sequel in the channel’s history, the pressure was on for the film to meet or exceed the performance of its predecessor.
Refreshed Nielsen numbers reveal it did just that.
Viewership = 1.26 million
Executive produced by Kelly and her husband Tim Weatherspoon, ‘Christmas Wedding’ – which reassembled the franchise’s original cast including Thomas Cadrot, Debbi Morgan, Bresha Webb, and more – went to ratings battle against the likes of highly anticipated Hallmark holiday films, “must see” college football, and more on November 28.
Ranking #10 on the list of Saturday’s highest rated cable programs overall, ‘Merry Liddle Christmas Wedding’ also ranked #2 among the most-viewed scripted telecasts of the day.

Congratulations are due to Kelly and co. as the 1.26 million viewers for ‘Wedding’ bested the original’s viewership by over 200,000!
