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 all the way to December 25th. The now annual programming event features a mix of popular Christmas and family films, along with other acquired holiday themed TV specials.

    happy holidays

  • Reach 4 the Stars

    I also miss the classic movies like Bishop’s Wife, Miracle on 34th Street, Prancer, It Happened on 5th Avenue, Christmas Story. You could have a once a week double feature. I bet it would be wildly popular.

    So AMS’s idea of the Best Christmas Ever is to show Fred Claus, Four Christmases, National Lampoons Vacation and Elf continuously?

  • I’m a huge fan of AMC Halloween and Christmas specials. Wish they would show all scenes of National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. There is a part/scene when Cousin Eddie went inside the house of boss Mr. Frank Shirley. AMC…please show exclusive movies. I look forward to your specials every year. Great network…Great movies/shows…

  • It’s Saturday December 3rd, and it says ELF should be on back to back, but I am currently watching Karate Kid on AMC? What is this about?

      You have no idea how excited I am that we have 3 months left to wish these christmas shows!I just hope they will add more show this year…movies like they night they save christmas,Santa Claus the Movie(1984) and cartoons like Claymation Christmas and the Stingiest man in town from Rankin Bass.

  • Darren Martin

    Just wondering why amc doesn’t post the whole schedule.. it would help so to know what days to watch their christmas schedule.

  • What happened to the old movie classics like The Bishops Wife, Christmas in Connecticut ?


    Thanks AMC I love your choices you’re the best.

  • The land of forgotten Rankin-Bass specials…

  • Horrified Adult With Basic Common Sense

    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!

    • Adult who acts like an adult

      Feel better about yourself now? And way to go bringing politics into this. I pray you get the help you need.

    • 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.

    • Merry Christmas, Horrified!
