Diane Ladd might not be in the final season of Chesapeake Shores
April 5th, 2022 under Hallmark. [ Comments: none ]

Hallmark Channel recently announced that the next season of Chesapeake Shores will be its last. Therefore, Chessies will want everyone who has been part of the show to be in the final season.

However, Diane Ladd, who plays the matriarch Nell O’Brien, has some sad news for the fans. “With the announcement of #chesapeakeshores ending with season 6, I just wanted to say I’m working hard to make it back to Canada to say goodbye, but I’m filming a movie and might not be able,” she wrote. “We will see what Gd has in store. Love n Light Diane”

Hopefully, the legendary actress can make it back to say goodbye to the show and her co-stars.


Hallmark Channel is already getting into the Christmas spirit
March 1st, 2022 under Hallmark. [ Comments: none ]

It has been two weeks since Valentine’s Day, so I guess it is time to get ready for Christmas. At least in the T.V. world.

Yesterday, Lifetime announced three of their holiday movies, and today Hallmark Channel did the same.

For the first time in Hallmark Channel’s history, they are doing a movie with the Rockettes, who are synonymous with Christmas in NYC. The hick-kicking dancers will be joined by Ann-Margaret, Eve Plumb, Ginna Claire Mason, and Derek Klena.

The story is set in 1958 when a Philadelphia heiress named Maggie (Mason) puts her high-society wedding plans, to a man she doesn’t love, on hold in order to sneak up to New York City and make her secret dream come true: dancing live on stage in the Christmas Spectacular at Radio City Music Hall. While her family thinks she’s staying in New York City with an “approved” friend from boarding school, Maggie is living a completely different life than she’s ever known. She falls in love with New York and dancing with the Rockettes. Maggie soon feels caught between two worlds, made even more complicated by her chance encounter with young U.S. Navy photographer John (Klena). Will Maggie find the courage to tell her family?

According to that description, A Holiday Spectacular will live up to its name.

I just have one request for next year. Can we wait until after July Fourth to talk about Christmas? I love the holiday, but I need a little more of a break from it. Because mentioning this early is making me turn into an Ebeneezer Scrooge. Bah humbug.


Home & Family is all talked out
March 23rd, 2021 under Cameron Mathison, Hallmark. [ Comments: none ]

Hallmark Channel, the channel of happy movies, is giving us a sad story today. That is because they announced that this is the last season for their daily talk show.

“The ninth and current season of ‘Home & Family’ will be the series’ last,” a spokesperson for the network said in a statement to Variety. “For nearly a decade, the show has anchored our daytime lineup, featuring countless hours of cooking, lifestyle, DIY, health, entertaining and decorating segments. We want to thank the heart and soul of the show, our incredibly talented cast and crew — led by co-hosts Debbie Matenopoulos and Cameron Mathison — for their creativity, hard work and dedication. Our audience can look forward to more of the topical segments they know and love when the show returns on Monday, April 5 with a new one-hour, three-day-a-week format. The program’s final episode airs Wednesday, August 4th.”

I think this is a huge mistake because it was a great way to promote their many, many, many movies. Plus, it was fun to watch because there was such great chemistry on the show. You can tell that everyone liked each other. Something that is rare these days in daytime.

Along with the chemistry, there were also some really interesting cooking and crafting segments. It was nice to have something different than the other morning shows to watch.


Christmas will be on the Hallmark Channel all year long
January 8th, 2021 under Hallmark. [ Comments: 1 ]

Even though Christmas was just two weeks ago, do you still need your fix? Guess what? Hallmark Channel is going to give it to you all year long. Every Friday night at 8p, they are going to air a holiday movie.

Whoever came up with this idea needs a big fat raise. This is brilliant. The smartest thing they ever did.

Let’s be honest; we all need a little Christmas in our lives throughout the year at different times. Now, we are going to get it every Friday night for free. It is the gift that keeps on giving 52 weeks a year!

As the song says, “We need a little Christmas,” and now we are getting it!

BTW How long do you think it will take them to have a channel that only plays holiday movies? I say it will happen by 2022.


Hallmark adds a Rose Nylund ornament to its Christmas Keepsake Collection
August 25th, 2020 under Betty White, Christmas Music, Hallmark. [ Comments: none ]


Christmas is coming early this year because Hallmark added a Christmas Keepsake Ornament we will want to hang on our trees. They are adding a talking Rose Nylund ornament to their collection. That’s right. She says five of her best lines from The Golden Girls. Before you ask, yes, they are about St. Olaf.

While it does not look exactly like Betty White (more like Barbara Billingsley), it is close enough for me to need to hang her from the pine tree. Although, she is such an angel, I might put her on top.

The ornament is available to pre-order for $19.99 and will start shipping out on October 5th. Don’t wait because it will be gone faster than a cheesecake in their kitchen.
