HomeTVHallmark ChannelThe Martha Stewart Show BOMBS Like a Dinner Party With Plastic Forks on Hallmark Channel! Luke Kerr September 15, 2010 8 Comments She may be an iconic homemaking maven, who puts Desperate Housewives’ Bree Van de Kamp (Marcia Cross) to shame, but when Martha Stewart’s new Hallmark Channel show gets taken to the woodshed and spanked in the ratings by Little House on the Prairie and Golden Girls reruns you know there is a problem. According to The Live Feed, the 10 a.m. airing of The Martha Stewart Show on the Hallmark Channel dropped 61 percent from Golden Girls reruns during the same time a year ago and the 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. re-airings dropped 67 and 71 percent from Little House on the Prairie reruns a year ago. Even worse, the Hallmark Channel’s 25-54 target female audience was down significantly. Photo by PR Photos 8 Responses craigcp September 15, 2010 Yippie Ki-Yay motherfucker!

Log in to Reply keanna September 16, 2010 I actually like Martha as well, but I think she should go back to her original format, and not an hour-long talk show.

I enjoyed Martha Stewart’s syndicated show. I don’t care about a talk show.
