Dolly Parton's Coat of Many Colors Draws Big Audience

Posted December 11th, 2015 @ 1:35pm

Many eyes were on Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors.

Variety reports the faith-based original movie about Dolly Parton’s childhood in the Great Smoky Mountains drew an impressive 12.8 million viewers overall, the biggest crowd for an original network movie since 2012.

“Wow wow wow … I hadn’t heard this yet and am blown away,” star Jennifer Nettles tweeted in response to the ratings news.

Moreover, NBC hasn’t drawn a larger audience with a program not airing live since the series finale of ER in April 2009.

The movie, set in the 1950s, was inspired by Dolly’s iconic song by the same name and tells the story of the patchwork coat her mother made her.
