Dolly Parton

Dolly Parton's Coat of Many Colors drew nearly 13 million viewers for NBC on Thursday (December 10) -- beating its competition for the night.


The movie, which starred Jennifer Nettles, also scored the highest rating of any original movie on any of the major networks since CBS's "Jesse Stone: Benefit of Doubt" in 2012. 

It's NBC's largest overall audience -- other than sports programming -- since Carrie Underwood headlined "The Sound of Music Live" in December 2013.
