On Hallmark Movies and Mysteries, all of the […]

The Hallmark Christmas comedy Three Wise Men and a Baby is the most-watched cable movie of the year, according to Nielsen ratings.

The movie, which starred Andrew Walker, Tyler Hynes, and Paul Campbell, premiered on November 19 during Hallmark Channel’s Countdown to Christmas lineup.

According to the ratings, it was ad-supported cable’s most-watched movie of the year to date among homes, viewers, women 18+, persons 18+, women 25-54, and women 18-34. It averaged 2.9 million homes, 411,000 women 25-54, and 3.6 million total viewers, according to Nielsen.

Three Wise Men and a Baby

In the movie, a self-absorbed firefighter Luke (Walker) discovers a baby left in his station with a note asking him to look after the child. He brings the baby home to his mother (played by Margaret Colin) who agrees to look after him. But when she gets called out of town unexpectedly, Luke must look after the infant with help from his brothers, played by Hynes and Campbell.

The premise was a departure from the typical single-woman-finds-love-at-the-holidays formula Hallmark Media has become so famous for. But it worked, according to fans.

“This is the BEST!” wrote one fan on Facebook. “Team those three up, again!”

“Hallmark, you got a winner with this movie!! If you haven’t seen it, watch it!! wrote another.

The trio movie

Hallmark found similar success when it paired up three of its other big names, Alison Sweeney, Lacey Chabert, and Autumn Reeser, in The Wedding Veil trilogy. In those romantic comedies, three best friends experienced the mystery of a lace veil rumored to bring true love to its owner.

The movie was inspired in part by fans. Chabert said that fans often asked her if they would see some sort of cross-over movie, with more than one Hallmark leading lady.

Those films did so well that Hallmark tried its hand with three leading men. The gamble paid off.

“Belly laughs,” wrote one fan. “Absolutely adorable movie!”

Walker, Hynes, and Campbell managed to raise a lot of hype for the movie from their on-set antics. In a TikTok video that went viral, the three stars emerged from their trailers wearing elf costumes. Assuming macho poses, they then strutted off together as the George Baker Selection’s hit “Little Green Bag” played in the background.

Three Wise Men and a Baby will air throughout the Christmas season. The next showtime is Saturday, November 26 at 4/3c.

Hallmark fans without cable, rejoice! You can still get your Countdown to Christmas fix. Hallmark has announced a partnership with the streaming service Peacock TV. This means Hallmark fans can watch their favorite network at a fraction of the cost of a full cable subscription.

Between Countdown to Christmas and Miracles of Christmas, Hallmark will release 40 new movies during the holiday season. The films include sequels to Hallmark favorites and will star network regulars such as Alison Sweeney, Andrew Walker, Erin Cahill, Tyler Hynes, Kimberly Sustad, Marilu Henner, and Paul Campbell.

The stars of the Hallmark Christmas movie Three Wise Men and a Baby have been sharing photos and videos from the set and it looks like the film will be laugh-out-loud funny.

“Buckle up,” wrote Paul Campbell in an Instagram post that featured the three stars posing in costume while the George Baker Selection’s hit “Little Green Bag” plays in the background.

“We had some good fun over on TikTok,” wrote Campbell’s co-star Tyler Hynes in his own post.

The Hallmark Christmas movie Three Wise Men and a Baby

The movie, which will premiere as part of Hallmark Channel’s 2022 Countdown to Christmas, stars Campbell, Hynes, and Andrew Walker as brothers who end up looking after a baby during the holidays. According to a synopsis from Hallmark, “…they find themselves on unexpected journeys of self-discovery” and begin to rebuild their relationships and rediscover their love of Christmas.

Cast and crew are hard at work on the movie, but it looks like the stars found some time to have fun. In a video they posted to TikTok, the three actors emerge from their trailers dressed as Christmas elves.

When they run into each other again, she agrees to help him find the perfect gift for his girlfriend.

A spokeswoman for Hallmark said the film will give viewers a chance to experience London at Christmastime.

“We can’t wait to transport our viewers ‘across the pond’ for this special, holiday adventure,” said Samantha DiPippo, senior vice president of development and programming for Crown Media Family Networks. “We’re thrilled to have been able to feature famous sites and set our story against the unique backdrop of London at Christmastime.”

Hallmark has set several Christmas movies in Europe, including Crown For Christmas, Christmas at the Palace, and A Royal Christmas. However, these films were all made primarily in Bucharest, Romania.
