Old reruns of golden girls Colombo and Matlock

I am so disappointed at all the old reruns. What are you doing. All day and starting at 10:00pm at night. We have to pay extra for these channels. I prefer your original programming. I don't find golden girl appropriate for younger children. Guess I will have to leave these 2 channels. I have enjoyed your programming for many years. So very disappointing

Can you tell me if this is temporary or is it an ongoing programming policy.

People of Color

Your movies don't show people of color with leading rolls. Why is that? A black person is always a receptionist, best friend, co-worker, etc. Never a lead. No Hispanics at all...Ever
What is up with that? I see complaints from 2012. Maybe there is no intention.

The Same Old Movies

I love watching the Hallmark Channel but they play the same movies over and over again. I also agree with some of the comments - there should be more diversity. Come on Hallmark....

White Christmas

Both black and white people I know strongly agree that Hallmark movies are too white.

I can just about cue in the "black best friend" in the beginning of every movie. Better yet, the introduction of the black best friend who then goes away for the rest of the movie, as if Hallmark is doing it to say, "See? We put black people in our movies!"

Hallmark, Asians, Latinos, and African Americans like to celebrate the holidays, too! And white people like to see them featured in movies!

Repeating same movie

Why are movies repeated several times over a few days? There must be thousands of movies to chose from.

We love the Hallmark channels, but would like to see different movies every night.

Diversity

Are there any African, Asian or Latin people in Hallmark land? Because, aside from the diversity in Murder, She Wrote and Mystery Woman, they appear to be non-existent. The Hallmark original series are populated pretty much exclusively by Euro American women. The settings are American, but the populations are ALL of European descent. Are they all set in Forsyth, Georgia???

no African Americans

In Florida we don't have white Christmas but if we did want one...al we had to do is turn to hallmark channel. There are SO many minoritie actors and actress please use some of them. I think Mary J Blige would make a GREAT mystery solver. Just think about it.

Lack of diversity

Like Hallmark for their wholesomeness and mysteries. I would really like to see more African Americans and other races on your shows . It seems that your station only views Caucasians as wholesome. Could you please add more diversity?
Thanks

Lack of diversity

Love these channels because of the wholesome content. Like the mysteries but never see any African Americans or any other people of diversity. It seems that Hallmark only sees Caucasians as wholesome people. Is it possible to add diversity to your shows?

Thanks

Murder, she baked

I was very disappointed that this Christmas season there was no "Murder, she baked" movie. Love these movies and Alison Sweeney & Cameron Mathison have great chemistry. Please, please bring new movies from Joanne Fluke great books back to the Hallmark channels. And of course Sweeney and Mathison to play the characters Thanks for your time.

No Little House or the Waltons STILL

So here we are again..11 days after the start of the return to regular Hallmark programming and still no Little House or The Waltons, who by the way have been off since October 2015!. Yet Hallmark chooses to run SEVEN HOURS of Tim Allen shows. Really Hallmark shame on you for running anything put out by Tim Allen. I watch your channel for good wholesome, quality television that you cannot get anywhere else. Your fundamentals are about good family values, well need we forget Tim Allen and his arrest record in 1978 for cocaine and drug trafficking and his addictions. He could have spent life in prison for his crimes. I know no one is perfect, however, lets reconsider his morals, values and seven hours of basically the same stupid show, but in different varieties.

So..Hallmark when can we viewers expect a change..for the better??!! Oh btw..I watch COZI TV they are showing Little House 2x a day!

Time change for Diagnosis Murder

I watched Diagnosis Murder every morning in year 2016. My favorite show series. You have changed the times too early for me to watch. Could you possibly change the time to 7:00am & 8:00am & 9:00am MST. Please. The times you have set is impossible for anyone to watch that loves this series. What is the object to set the times as they are now? I always watched the series on channel 187. It was a perfect time. Can you please do something about this to change the time on Diagnosis Murder Series?

Sound ?

I have a 94 year old mother who is hard of hearing. But a mo th or so ago, she started complaining that the talking on Hallmark is garbled. This is on both televisions she has. This is not true on any other channel. Have you changed broadcasting?

looking for movies with less romance, and more seasonal family plots

Hallmark has become a total romance movie network. They used to make great movies that weren't all about the romance, but had real substance. I would like to see movies that are about families, about people and struggles. Movies like the old Hallmark Hall of Fame movies used to be. The plot of the Christmas movies has become so repetitive, and in 2016, the re run factor of the same few movies was simply unbearable. Please bring back many of the older movies, make new ones without the main plot being about romance, and make the product placement less obvious as it comes across so incredibly tacky (Foldger's Cofffee!).

When calls the Heart teacher

I started watching this show on Netflix and was disappointed that the star who portrays a teacher would refer to the famous comet as HAILEY'S comet rather than the proper name, HALLEY'S Comet. I think the Canadians might have confused the 50's band, Bill Hailey & the Comets with the scientist, Edmond Halley, from whom the comet is named.
Being a teacher myself, as well of the wife of a descendent of Edmond Halley, I would love to see this historical error corrected.
A school teacher should know better! Someone should be checking for historical accuracy on the set.
Thanks!

Break The Mold!

I am a 58 year old African American woman. I love reading cozy mysteries. With the exception of Garage Sale Mysteries I read all the others you've recently added. The movies depart in some fundamental ways from the books and I believe most readers are fine with that. Why then have you not chosen to make the lead character a person of color? Please consider adding original non-stereotypical actresses to the line-up.

Lack of Diversity on Hallmark Channel

There is such a lack of diversity on the Hallmark Channel. Every movie, every show is all about skinny, good lookin white people. There are no people of color. There are no fat people. There are no ugly people. There are no people with facial or speech disabilities. It has been this way for years and years. I love the shows, I love the movies, but please, please put some diversity in there. It is discrimination to disregard the many differences we have in culture, in looks, ethnicity. Hallmark is really way behind the times.

No people of color

Why is that you guys only have pale skin people in you movies. Brown skin purple whom you call black are very successful people who by the way help build this country. Shame on you for thinking only what you call whites can act or make movies Shane on you for bring do bias I will not each you movies any more I want to see America not just one race of people. Let's have some blacks starting in movies Hispanic Asians then we will watch again. Telling all my friends to boycott you until you do there are older people of color who needs jobs and might make your stories not do boring thank you this is 2017 watke up this country is made up of many different races

not complaing

LOVE the Nov -Dec Christmas Movies - don't change a thing (unless you add more movies in the rotation)!! It is such a sad day when they end and you return to the 3rd year of repeating the same 20-30 year old sitcoms, and we only get movies part time on the weekends?? Why not keep your ratings juggernaut going with some weekday movies and original programming - I think your loyal Christmas Season viewership would LOVE this choice to see happy, family friendly shows the 'other' 10 months of the year!!
