What’s Hot on TV Tonight – Two Holiday Movies on Hallmark

Hallmark is pushing the Christmas holiday for the second weekend in a row and it’s not even Thanksgiving. Tonight they have two more Hallmark original movies, including a real aww-fest with two dogs playing matchmaker for their owners, and another one with Santa Claus is being sued.
