Exclusive: Lifetime Gives More Holiday Cheer to The Hoff's Christmas Consultant

It had all the makings of a holiday camp classic. Lifetime's seasonal TV movie The Christmas Consultant stars David Hasselhoff as a green bow tie-wearing, bespectacled holiday hero who helps an overworked and overstressed family get through December.

But after bad reviews and a low-rated Nov. 10 premiere (just 1.5 million viewers), Lifetime quietly began scrubbing additional airings of the TV movie. Pre-emptions included a big Sunday primetime screening on Dec. 2. As a result, The Christmas Consultant wasn't set to air again until Dec. 25 at 6/5c — Christmas night, when presumably fewer viewers are watching TV or too juiced up on nog to appreciate it.
