.
On Sunday Dolly Parton's Coat of Many Colors Getting Christmas Encore was a top story. Here is the recap: (Webster) If you were not part of the 15.6 million people that tuned in to watch "Dolly Parton's Coat of Many Colors" earlier this month, the network has a special Christmas present for you that will give you another chance to see it.

NBC will be broadcasting an encore presentation of the film on Christmas Day at 9/8c. Dolly had this to say, "I hoped to bring some families together so they could sit and watch a move like this. I really wanted to celebrate the people, my whole family, who made me who and what I am today.

"I'm so blessed and thankful for everyone who watched and I hope this story reaches many, many more when NBC shows it Christmas night," said Parton.

"Dolly Parton's Coat of Many Colors" ranks as the most-watched film on the four broadcast networks in more than six years with 13 million viewers during the initial Dec. 10 broadcast, and Nielsen live +3 nudging the total up by 2.5 million to an overall 15.6 million, plus a 27% hike that nudged the 18-49 demo from a 1.8 to 2.3. L+3 ratings measure live viewing plus DVR viewing up to three days later.

The film is set in the Tennessee Great Smoky Mountains in 1955. It is neither a biopic nor musical about Parton's whole life and performing career, but rather a family-oriented faith-based story about the incidents in her and her family's life around the time she was 9 years old.

"Dolly Parton's Coat of Many Colors" is the first in a planned series of TV movies inspired by the country music icon's songs. You can also watch it online right now - here.
