The demo tally came in at a 0.1, which is on par with what everything else on the network has been doing this season.

Will the movie lead to a full-fledged series? Probably not, but it could lead to more movies set in The Waltons universe.

The special came in well ahead of The Legends of the Hidden Temple reboot on the night this season.
