The five-night Thanksgiving Weekend Event on Hallmark Channel featured one original movie each night, with the top numbers coming for “A Christmas Detour” averaged a 0.67 rating in adults 18-49 and 4.778 million viewers overall. Among all scripted cable programs last week, it ranked behind only AMC’s “The Walking Dead” (13.98 million) and “Into the Badlands” (5.17 million). Also faring well was “Crown for Christmas” on Friday (0.68 in 18-49, 4.29 million viewers overall). The largest audience for a Hallmark Channel original movie remains “Christmas Under Wraps,” which drew 5.8 million viewers around this time a year ago.”via Variety.com

Haley Reinhart opened up for The Rigs this past Thursday night at the legendary Troubadour in Hollywood, California. It was Haley’s first time at the venue, and she definitely made her mark on that stage.
As of late, most of Haley’s local L.A. shows have been small acoustic sets. This time, she brought a full band, and everything was bigger and better! Dressed in all black, Haley took the stage along with her many band mates in front of the sold out crowd.
They opened the show with Haley’s soon-to-be released first single off the EP, “Better”:
