Sunday night marked the premiere of the first-ever made-for-TV movie for The CW network. With over 957,000 viewers Sunday, The Waltons’ Homecoming is the most viewed night for the network of the current season.
Faith was a focus of the story and producer Sam Haskell shared previously that it was important.
“In my initial conversations with Mark Pedowitz, the chairman of the CW, I told him that there was going to be a faith element in this and he embraced it completely,” Haskell said. “And he feels as I do that putting faith and family and hope and joy front and center, it’s something this world needs right now. And I believe that The Waltons’ Homecoming is going to bring that to families. He and I both know that families watching something together is very rare these days. And this is the kind of program that can bring an entire family together.”
