In 2011 the premiere broadcast of "CMA Country Christmas" drew more than 9 million viewers, which represented an increase of nearly 23% over the inaugural broadcast in 2010. Adults 18-49 increased year-to-year by nearly 50%. Not only were initial airings better than in the previous year, through DVR playback, Total Viewers who watched the show within a week of premiere increased by 2 million from 2010 to 2011 (9.624 vs. 7.663); the cumulative audience reached 14 million.

"The popularity of 'CMA Country Christmas' grows each year," said Steve Moore, CMA Chief Executive Officer.
