Here's the Hallmark promo airing on the channel to promote 'The Countdown to Christmas', i.e. the 12 new original movies, including Help for the Holidays. Only a few movies are featured in this short promo, and not Summer Glau's Christmas movie, unfortunately.
Hallmark Channel's Saturday night original holiday movies continue to draw record viewers, with the December 1st premiere of "A Bride for Christmas" drawing nearly 5.3 million unduplicated viewers, garnering a 3.0 household rating, and claiming the distinction as the #1 Saturday cable movie for the 5th consecutive week. In addition, the movie further built on the network's positive "Countdown to Christmas" momentum, ranking as the #1 cable program of the day and Hallmark Channel's #1 original movie of the year among households and total viewers.
Following up on this success, the Sunday, December 2nd premiere of original movie "The Christmas Heart" rated as the #2 cable movie of the day, with a 2.9 household rating and over 5.1 million unduplicated viewers. The #3 cable program of Sunday, "The Christmas Heart" now ranks as Hallmark Channel's 2nd highest original movie of the year among total viewers and 3rd highest rated original movie of the year among households.
I hope this trend will continue next week with the premiere of 'Come Dance with me' on Saturday 8 and 'Help for the Holidays' on Sunday 9. The romantic comedy 'Comes Dance with me' is heavily promoted by Hallmark on Facebook, Youtube or at their website but nothing for Summer Glau's movie so far.

I made a movie poster for Summer Glau's Christmas movie 'Help for the Holidays' for the SG Wiki, see Blogpost.
Since Hallmark Channel does not bother to add pictures or movie poster to the IMDb page for their movies, i thought it would be great if IMDb picks up this movie poster. Alas i was very well aware that firstly the movie poster may not be professional-looking enough for IMDb and secondly only authorized representatives of films, such as production's director, producer or publicist are allowed to add movie posters.
But it's Christmas time and miracles can happen...

I managed to lay the hand on new promo images for 'Help for the Holidays' and a sneak peek video as well; but since the site is experiencing an unsusual long loading time, due to our host conducting a scheduled maintenance, i won't share them immediately.
It's a shame because the pictures are beautiful and the sneak peek features Summer's elven side in a funny scene. You can also find me on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr or Youtube
Eva LaRue (who plays the busy mom on Help for the Holidays) joined Marie Osmond on the set of Marie’s Hallmark talk show titled “Marie” on Wednesday, December 5.
From the press release :
Marie welcomes the talented star of “CSI: Miami,” Eva La Rue, who dishes on how her husband Joe proposed not once, but twice and how her daughter played a part in their reconciliation. Eva also tells Marie about her Hallmark Channel Original Movie, “Help for the Holidays.”
WOW wee, well spotted Chris. I guess Maria has given up stage shows, she can't sing forever. She's done well getting a chat show and is perfectly suited for it. I'm pleased for Eva that she was invited.
I'm quite envious of all those stars meeting more stars and possessing all that talent, dress sense and looking great.
Since you seem to love Marie Osmond so much, here's a short video of her greeting her fans while departing Pantages Theatre in Hollywood, taken the day she chatted with Eva LaRue.
We've seen in post #45 that Garret Dillahunt (Chromartie/John Henry in TSCC) was on the show a few days ago and now it would be great to have Summer Glau in Marie's show. You can also find me on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr or Youtube

Those who have access to PixL channel, available on Dish Network and Sky Angel, can watch the movie on December 8 at 1:30 am or 7:30 pm and on December 9 at 7:30 am. I would really appreciate if an American fan could DVR 'Help for the Holiday' and send us the movie so that we can share part of it with the fans who don't live in the US at the Summer Glau Wiki.

The official Twitter account for Hallmark Channel is calling for Summer Glau fans to support 'Help for Holidays'.
We must not pass up this unique opportunity to show that the Summer Glau fandom is a force to be reckoned with; i strongly invite all fans to re-tweet and favorite @hallmarkchannel tweet above or the following one (i added a link to the images so you can re-tweet directly from this post). Imagine the impact if these tweets have 100 re-tweets and as much favorites.
Don't forget to leave a nice comment under Hallmark's posts related to 'Help for the Holidays' on their Facebook page and share them on your timeline :
This is very important to leave a comment on Facebook because you will reach directly the Hallmark audience; these viewers would maybe not have thought about watching 'Help for the Holidays' but might if we advertise the movie. In this regard, you may use the tagline in this thread : Create a tagline for Help for the Holidays You can also find me on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr or Youtube
