New York, NY, August 23, 2019 -Hallmark Channel's "Good Witch" wrapped up on Sunday with stellar ratings, claiming the #2 spot among scripted series on ad-supported cable. The original series, now concluding its fifth season, propelled the network to rank #1 in Household rating on Sundays, further lifting Hallmark Channel to be the highest-rated and most-watched cable network on the weekends[1]. Overall, the ten episodes averaged a 2.8 Household rating, 2.8 million Total Viewers, and 419,000 Women 25-54, becoming the highest-rated and most-watched season of "Good Witch" in series history.

"When the first 'Good Witch' original movie premiered on Hallmark Channel in 2008, we couldn't have foreseen that those characters would instantly become a beloved fixture in the imaginations of our viewers, let alone that we would go on to produce ten more movies and develop what has become one of the most successful primetime series on cable," said Michelle Vicary, EVP, Programming and Network Publicity, Crown Media Family Networks. "As we wrap up Season Five on a high note, we are beginning to cook up some magic for next season that we know our fans will love."

The finale episode delivered a 3.0 Household rating, 3 million Total Viewers, 414,000 Women 25-54 and was the highest-rated and most-watched program of the day and second highest-rated program of the week, excluding news.
