Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors Crushes Ratings

NBC’s faith-based original movie Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors opened to hearty numbers on Thursday, skewing older as expected but beating its broadcast competition in key demos while drawing nearly 13 million total viewers — the biggest crowd for an original movie on the Big Four since 2012 according to Vanity.

Coat of many colors is the real life story of country legand superstar Dolly Parton and the hardship her family faced when tragedy struck. It was a coat made by Dolly’s mother that helped the family through their grief and gave them hope.

While last week’s The Wiz Live! drew better in key demos — by 89% in 18-49 (3.4 vs. 1.8) and by 48% in 25-54 (4.0 vs. 2.7) — Coat of Many Colors drew a larger overall audience by more than 1 million (12.8 million vs. 11.5 million). The movie, starring Young and the Restless actress Alyvia Alyn Lind as a 9-year-old Parton, peaked with 13.2 million viewers for its final half-hour.

In adults 18-49, the 1.8 rating for the film ties with a 2012 Hallmark Hall of Fame telepic on ABC, Christmas for Holly, as the top-rated original movie in recent years. The last cable original movie to rate higher was Lifetime’s Flowers in the Attic nearly two years ago (1.9 in January 2014).

It’s easy to see why this film did so well. Parton is a house hold name and the song coat of many colors is a beautiful classic. Who wouldn’t want to know the story behind it?

More over it carries a message of hope and with faith anything is possible. We couldn’t think of a better message to send during the holiday season. If you haven’t watched it we highly recommend you check it out.

“I’m just hoping during the holiday season this will be my gift to the public,” the country music icon said. “To say, ‘Hey, do sit down as a family. Do watch this.'”

“Coat of Many Colors,” which is neither a biopic nor musical of Parton’s whole life, is a family-oriented story based on Parton’s upbringing in Tennessee. Country music singer Jennifer Nettles plays Parton’s mom, Ricky Schroder plays Parton’s dad and Alyvia Lind plays an 8-year-old Parton.

The television event, which airs December 10 is based on Dolly Parton’s hit song “Coat of Many Colors” which is a true story.

Dolly Parton fans, get ready to go back through the years, wanderin’ once again to the legendary singer’s inspiring life story with this first look at her NBC made-for-TV movie Coat of Many Colors. The film stars newcomer Alyvia Alyn Lind as a 9-year-old Dolly Parton, while Ricky Schroder (NYPD Blue) plays her father, Lee, and Grammy award-winning country artist Jennifer Nettles goes brunette to play Dolly’s mother, Avie Lee Parton — the woman who crafted the titular coat for her daughter.

Inspired by Parton’s hit song of the same name, Coat of Many Colors “takes place inside the tight-knit Parton family as they struggle to overcome devastating tragedy and discover the healing power of love, faith, and a raggedy patchwork coat that helped make Parton who she is today,” according to NBC’s official description of the project. While the film takes place in Tennessee’s Great Smokey Mountains, where Parton grew up, it’s not an official biopic, 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.” The cast appearing in the photo above also includes (from left, front row): Carson Meyer as Willadeene Parton, Farrah Mackenzie as Stella Parton, Alyvia Alyn Lind as Dolly, Dylan Michael Rowen as Denver Parton, Parker Sack as David Parton, and Blane Crockarell as Bobby Parton. If this first look doesn’t inspire you to listen to the song again, well, we’re not sure you should even call yourself a Dolly fan.

Coat of Many Colors premieres Thursday, Dec. 10 at 9 p.m. on NBC.
