Cameron Mathison has a new Home & Family!
July 27th, 2018 under Cameron Mathison, Hallmark. [ Comments: none ]

Nearly two months after Home & Family parted ways with Mark Steines, they replaced him with another Entertainment Tonight host. Cameron Mathison is moving into the daily Hallmark talk show with co-host Debbie Matenopoulos.

I think this pairing is brilliant. Both of them are very likable and full of energy. It is enough to perk up anyone’s morning. Not only that, he is favorite on their channels whenever he does one of their films. Therefore, he already has a built-in audience with them.

When it comes to his time at ET, it is not over yet. He will appear on the show whenever he has time to do it.


Hallmark Channel says Mark Steines is no longer part of the Home & Family
May 31st, 2018 under Hallmark. [ Comments: none ]

The Hallmark Channell announced today that they are changing up Home & Family, their daily talk show. They wrote, “Today Hallmark Channel has parted ways with Mark Steines as the co-host of the network’s lifestyle series ‘Home & Family.’ We are extremely grateful to Mark for his incredible work and wish him all the best success in his future endeavors.”

No reason was given for his given for his sudden departure, leaving fans of the show to wondering what happened. Steines has been with the show since it moved to Hallmark in 2012.

Debbie Matenopoulos is still hosting the show. No word if they will replace her former co-host with someone else or multiple people since they bring in several experts throughout the two-hour show.

I am sad that Louis Aguirre is back in Miami because I loved it when he and Matenopoulos and co-hosted The Insider together. They have such great chemistry.


It is puppy love for Linda Blair and Rick Springfield!
January 15th, 2018 under Hallmark, Rick Springfield. [ Comments: none ]

It looks like Rick Springfield has moved on from Jessie’s Girl to someone new. Not to Exorcist’s Linda Blair, but someone who is a real bitch. Who has them their turning heads all the way around? Puppies that need a furever home.

The two of them will be judges for Hallmark’s inaugural 2018 American Rescue Dog Show. The February 12th special is hosted by Rebecca Romijn and will feature shelter dogs from all over the US who are competing to be the top dog in the world’s most adorable categories. The best type of dog show I can think of.

BTW want to read something that will get your tails wagging? According to Springfield’s memoir, Blair and him used to date back in the ’70s. How do you like them bones?


An all-star cast boards The Christmas Train tonight on Hallmark Channel
November 25th, 2017 under Hallmark. [ Comments: none ]

In a year full of darkness and hate, Hallmark Channel is bringing light and love one movie at a time. Tonight at 8p, they share a story of lost love being rediscovered on The Christmas Train with a cast full of stars who needs to work together more often.

Tom Langdon (Dermot Mulroney), a former war journalist, decides to tell a different type of story in honor of his late father who loved locomotives. He is one of the passengers on The Christmas Train traveling from DC to LA and his tale of riding across country to meet his long distance love is one of the many told tonight as he tells theirs.

Eleanor (Kimberly Williams-Paisley) is the script doctor to Hollywood Producer extraordinaire Max Powers’ (Danny Glover) and they are there to write a script based on their journey. She is also Langdon’s ex-girlfriend and neither one knows that the other is on the train. Once the two exes meet up, sparks start to fly again, but she doesn’t want her heart broken again.

Young lovers Julie (Kirsten Prout) and Steve (Anthony Konechny) have boarded the train to elope and their forbidden love story will remind the former lovers what love is all about. Julie is from Kentucky and Steve is a billionaire, whose family does not approve of them getting married. That is why they took this form of transportation to run away. They ask Powers to marry them and they want Elanor and Tom to be their best man and bridesmaid on Christmas Eve. They have 3 days to give this couple the perfect wedding.

Some of the other passengers are Agnes (Joan Cusack), who gives Tom sage advice, widower John (John Innes), who is spending his first Christmas without his wife of 40 years and Misty (Karen Holness) a psychic.

While everyone is planning the wedding, Tom is thrown from a loop when his girlfriend actress Lelia (Holly Elissa) surprises him and asks for his hand in matrimony. Any hope that Elanor and Tom could rekindle their romance seems to be dashed forever. Or is it?

You don’t want to miss this sweet love story that proves love can happen at anytime and anywhere to anyone. What makes Hallmark Channel so special is that time and time again they give us hope and make us smile. That is why I am thankful that they continue to produce television movies for the whole family to enjoy together. That is why you should watch this telemovie tonight and all of the other ones they produce year round.


Chesapeake Shores is back to warm our hearts tonight!
August 6th, 2017 under Hallmark, Treat Williams. [ Comments: none ]

Last Summer, we feel in love with Chesapeake Shores and tonight at 9p it is back on Hallmark Channel. The family drama is as beautiful as the locale it is filmed in and the writing and acting is a pure treat for the whole family to enjoy together.

The episode starts off Abby (Meghan Ory) bailing her ex and one true love Trace (Jesse Metcalfe) out of jail. Not only does he have to deal with his father’s heart attack, he also been summoned back to Nashville to face the judge for the crime that he committed there. As the episodes go on, we will find out more about the crash that his changed his life and his friend’s life forever.

The show is not only about him, it is also about Abby and her family. We see the O’Brien family eating a meal together. Abby gets called into work, so she cannot take her daughters shopping. Her father (Treat Williams) offers to do it for her which lets him spend some time with his granddaughters. Now that they are back in Chesapeake Shores, he wants to spend as much time with them.

Also back in their picturesque community is the Abby’s mom (Barbara Niven). Her return is not welcomed by all of her five children and her ex-husband Mick. Her youngest daughter, Jess (Laci J. Mailey), hates her mother’s return the most. Something she does not need now that her bed and breakfast is finally open and overbooked.

So overbooked, she kicks her older sister, Bree (Emilie Ullerup) out of her room. Jess was just assuming she was going to Chicago to work on the play that she wrote. That production is not going as smoothly as she hoped and now she has some decisions to make.

Like his daughters, Mick is also having family problems. His brother (Gregory Harrison) is back and he is causing problems for Mick’s properties which will put in a wrench in Mick’s project with Trace.

Next week, we learn more about Mick’s sons Kevin (Brendan Penny) and Andrew (Andrew Francis). Plus we get more sage advice from the O’Brien matriarch (Diane Ladd).

Family is complicated, and for the O’Briens they are not immune from complications. But as long as they have each other, everything will be alright and we have a perfect show to watch every Sunday this Summer.
