“Full House” and “Fuller House” alum and star Candace Cameron Bure is thanking her fans and supporters once again for helping her accomplish something else that only adds to her storied entertainment career.
The actress thanked fans for making Great American Family (GAF) the “fastest-growing network” on cable TV last year.
In a post to her Instagram Story, the 46-year-old actress also shared a press release from parent company Great American Media about closing out the fourth quarter as the “fastest growing network in all of cable television.”
“Thank you for finding us and watching Great American Family Channel,” Bure wrote over the press release from the network.
Great news for Great American Media's #GreatAmericanFamily to end 2022 & an even better way to start 2023. Happy New Year to everyone who helped make this happen, from people on-camera & off, but especially our viewers! 🎉#GreatAmericanChristmas #WelcomeHome #GreatAmericanWinter pic.twitter.com/HwCtF021II

Meanwhile, in a tweet from GAF, the network shared, “Great news for Great American Media’s #GreatAmericanFamily to end 2022 & an even better way to start 2023. Happy New Year to everyone who helped make this happen, from people on-camera & off, but especially our viewers!”
The network also shared in the press release that in only the channel’s second year, it ranked “#1 in Total Day ratings growth in Households (+113%),” ages 18-49 (+100%) and total viewership (+116%), citing viewership data from Nielsen.
The company also noted that the network came in #1 in “Primetime ratings growth in Households (+128%) among all cable networks.”
The network noted further that the jump in growth came as a direct result of the “network’s Great American Christmas franchise, which featured 18 original Christmas movies” that included Bure and other fan favorites like “The Wonder Years” star Danica McKellar, entertainer Gladys Knight, and more.
The “Full House” star left The Hallmark Channel to join GAF to tell what she called “faith-filled” stories.
In a statement in April, Bure shared how excited she was to be developing “heartwarming family and faith-filled programming and make the kind of stories my family and I love to watch. I am constantly looking for ways that I can inspire people to live life with purpose. GAC fits my brand perfectly.”
