I wish Hallmark would give us more variety in the morning than Martha Stewart. I love their movies and watch them over and over.

We switched from Time Warner to ATT Uverse and no longer get the Hallmark Channel :(

I do like getting the Yankees channel though ( it's called YES for Yankees Entertainment Sports)
so I'm not complaining although Hallmark is a nice one. My sister watches it a lot.

What really kills me is we pay so much to get so little. So much stuff on that I have no interest in.

I don't keep that channel on my play list. Besides, don't you think old Martha is a tad scary?.......lol

the first time I saw or heard of Martha, she was on a holiday program, carefully inserting whole sage leaves beneath the skin of a turkey, to make a pattern. I thought to myself,

"THIS LADY IS CRRRAAAAAZY!!"

First time I saw her she went into a separate room. the size of a small bedroom, to decide which china to use for a holiday dinner. She had enough china to open a store. Decided then & there her ideas weren't for me.

I had been a devoted Martha Stewart fan since 1996. I have subscribed and collected her magazines (keep EVERY one), purchased her books and other products. I watched or recorded her show daily. One could say I love Martha Stewart.

However, when her show changed I began watching less and less. Since she has been on Hallmark I think I've watched one or two shows. I don't care for the new format and the way that she frequently interrupts her guests when they are speaking. Even the magazine does not hold as much wonder for me anymore. I will be ending my subscription in December. I'm sad about it but I live in the real world and I think I've developed less tolerance for the perfect world she has created on her show and magazine.

I like to watch Little House on the Prairie and I liked having the two episodes on in the afternoon.

Martha is on Hallmark? lol, I have ALL of the Martha guidelines in my rolodex, so I don't need to watch her:

MARTHA STEWART'S HOLIDAY CALENDAR
December 1
Blanch carcass from Thanksgiving turkey. Spray paint gold, turn
upside down and use as a sleigh to hold Christmas cards.

December 2
Have Mormon Tabernacle Choir record outgoing Christmas message
for answering machine.

December 3

December 11
Erect ice skating rink in front yard using spring water I bottled
myself.
Open for neighborhood children's use. Create festive mood by

homemade potpourri.

December 25
Alphabetize all the Christmas gifts for family and friends and
cross-reference by color and size.

I'm not a fan of Martha Stewart and wonder why Hallmark has chosen to have her in their daily weekday line up as opposed to the Food Network or HG. Same with Mad Hungry. Wonder what's up with Hallmark these days. I prefer those feel good shows like 7th Heaven, Touched by an Angel, Waltons, Little House on the Prairie types on Hallmark.
