Ms. Matched

Dear hallmark,

My roommate and I just spent out "date night" watching ms. Matched. The movie was so predictable. But honestly what bother the most was the ending. That was not her idea of a dream wedding, it just wasn't. Could be please redo the movie with a different ending. Thank you.

Diversity on the Hallmark Channel

Hello,

I am also very disappointed with the lack of diversity on the Hallmark channel movies, especially during the holidays! My family and friends look forward to the holiday movies, but, it is really sad that we don't see ourselves represented as wholesome families that exist in the world! Please reconsider your programming, cast selection and story lines to show your viewers that you truly care what they think! Thank you!

Diversity

Where are the non white, not skinny actors? Why can't a japanese american woman fall in love with a hunky latino man? Why can't a woman with curves be in the spotlight? This channel if VERY RACIST.

Diversity

I'm sure you're tired of hearing about it but AGAIN the lack of diversity on Hallmark especially during your holiday movies is offensive and annoying. No holiday movies (to my knowledge) have any characters of color as a lead character or romance. Everyone once in awhile you might see Vivica A Fox as the boss whose on screen for a total of ten minutes. I'm not saying every movie or every other movie has to feature a character (s) of color but Hallmark can do a lot better. The fact that people have pointed this out for the past few years and Hallmark makes no effort to change that is sad and very telling. This is why I stopped watching the CW, Lifetime and a few other networks. More and more I'm finding myself watching Netflix and if they every did a holiday series (that was diverse) I would be done with Hallmark. The only reason I really watch now is for the Golden Girls and I Love Lucy. What happened to the Waltons and Little House?

TERRIBLE COMMERCIALS!!!

I LOVE the Hallmark channel! We have Roku but pay for cable just to have it! I love that movies are clean and some have God in them and my whole family can watch! I am very upset about the recent commercials Featuring inappropriate shows on fox and ovation channel! We never had to monitor them in the past and my children saw them and this is very upsetting!
Very disappointed with Hallmark for allowing this! I really hope they do not lower their wholesome standards and conform to be like many of the other channels. Please remove these as I want to keep watching your channel!

Ignorance is Bliss!!

Really people, including a previous comment from 'The Bride' title "Uncomplaint Complaint" you must be that stereotypical skinny white girl with the stereotypical looks who got the same good looking stereotypical skinny white man! And calling it too PC, WOW! As the majority of channels, movies and people in the entertainment business are those same skinny white stereotypes ... in fact ones of Hispanic, Asian, Indian, African American, etc are also forced to fit that same skinny type profile to even be lucky to be considered for a role. 'The Bride' you are what makes us other talent, smart, loving, believers that all are beautiful and talented, white girls look bad.

Yep! I'm as fair skinned as they come and the more I watch the Hallmark Channel the more it makes me disgusted. (And it use to be something I look forward too during the holidays with my mom every year.) It's not just lack of diversity, but lack of BODY types. According to EVERY Hallmark Channel love story not do you need to be white but a person no bidder than size 4/6 to find themselves falling love! Why is that??? Really???

Hallmark Channel I read somewhere that your history is built on church and if that is true why are you not portraying the love and beauty of all?? Why are you not showing the love and magic .. in all sizes and diversity??? Maybe you are not a background of church or love. Maybe you are just around to make your money on your own idealistic. If that is true, well I guess that will be between you and God. So in that case I will leave with this then: Songs of Songs 4:7, Genesis 1:27, 1 Peter 3: 3-4, and lastly but not least Matthew 23:28.

I'm sure what I said will make no differences in your choices and money making. Sad ... but that is your conscience and not mine.

Diversity?

While I enjoy Hallmark programs I have a gut-punch disdain for any show that continues to ignore the stark white cast that makes up the majority of any characters of significance. There is so much more to the world than the colonized parts -- attempting to incorporate more of the world-view of the U.S. would enrich Hallmark programs and draw in more viewers, thereby improving the bottom line. Diversity in programming is going to require more than a few extras in the case and behind the scenes employees. I cannot in good conscious allow my children to watch shows that do not represent a better portion of this country.

Losing channel in the morning

Every once in a while I lose the channel for Hallmark M&M. Sometimes rebooting my cable box brings it back. It did not work this morning. I watch from 7:00AM until 1:00PM every morning. What happens?

Diversity!

Could you please add some more culture to your shows? This is ridiculous! You have no Asian, Hispanic, Indian and only a few token African Anerican! It's insulting and you obviously don't care because I've noticed that viewers have been making these comments for years and you have done nothing! You get angry when black people become vocal, but must we do that too? Is it time to make a scene? If you know better, you should do better and you definetly know better, so DO BETTER!

Christmas movies

I Love Love the Christmas shows...(The Christmas Card is my favorite) ...and it doesn't bother me at all that they're on for two months. However, I do wish there would be more religious themed movies. Anyone who doesn't like the Christmas movies, religious or secular; can just watch another channel during the most "Wonderful time of the year"

Little House and the Waltons

Whatever possessed you to replace Little House with the Brady Bunch?? and where is the Waltons?? What's next?? Taking off the Golden Girls?? I now ONLY watch Hallmark when the Golden Girls are on at night. AND....Last man Standing is the worst.
Also, I wish that Matlock would be on during the day because I am sleeping at 5 and 6 in the morning. I do love your Matlock marathons that you put on from time to time. Thank You.....

Hallmark Channel

Remove Christmas in July. Stop the two months of Christmas movies. The greed is unbelievable.
Life is short. Let us enjoy the seasons as they are. This is September. Don't saturate your network with "Countdown To Christmas" You are actually a big part of diluting the true meaning of Christmas. Maybe you should read and heed some of your greeting cards!

Christiana Ferrare

I can't help but shake my head at the stupid decision to fire Christiana Ferrare. The show is called Home and Family. She was the "Home" in that show and doesn't "Family" have people of all ages in it. Not just millineals or people under 35. Suddenly you turn 40 and according to Hollywood and the ad agencies your money doesn't matter any more. We don't spend enough or as much as the people in the age group from 18 - 35! Who are they kidding??? Do they actually believe that BS? What age group do they actually think are home during the day watching Home and Family? Most of American's aren't rich, their husbands aren't heads of big corporations, aren't married to Drs and Lawyers, aren't married to men who own their own companies. The viewers are mostly middle class and have two income families. Which means the sho is DVRd a lot! I say men because the majority of your audience is women. It's the older women that are home watching H&F. Our money is the same as the younger generation and believe me we spend more of it! Many of us babysit for our grandchildren and have to grocery shop, toy shop, clothes shop, accessory shop, etc., for them so we have stuff at our homes for them and our children won't have to lug everything everyday from their house to our houses. I call that spending money. We also spend money on your sponsors products just like the younger generation and in many cases more so but you have decided to throw us away! Christiana represented many age groups, many indeed! Someone or someones seemed to have forgotten that! Christiana was the heart and in my opinion the central figure of Home and Family. Maybe that made Mark mad, that Christiana became too popular, I don't know. However, she was the best thing that ever happened to Mark and to H&F! She always deferred to him, let the audience know that Mark was King of the show even though viewers liked Christiana best. What does Mark really do? Really what can he do....nothing but be a sorta host. Whatever Mark does Christiana did it better. She was an author, a gourmet cook, a great interviewer, a really fun person to be around and made the show so much fun to watch. She gave the show warmth and gave it heart. The very heart Hallmark uses in their commercial slogans!! Some heart you have Hallmark!! Then fires that heart!! No notice, no warning, no goodbye party and apparently in mid season!!!!! What the hey was up with that???? She seemed to be good for Mark helping him to be a better host, never stepping on his toes, at least on air. Why Hallmark truly fired Christiana and kept Mark has to be an age issue or a jealousy issue. I'm going to give Mark the benefit of the doubt here and say age. But still wonder about Mark - Christiana could do it all, Mark cannot. However, they had a wonderful on-air chemistry together! Something that cannot be said for Christiana's backstabbing replacement Debbie M.. They have no chemistry at all. It's forced, the fake laughter is so annoying. I just don't and can't watch this sham of a show and that's what the powers that be has turned this so called H&F show into, a sham!!! Who was the single individual that came up with the idea to fire Christiana? It had to come from one persons mind first. He needs to be fired for this decision alone! It was an awful move on Hallmarks part!! And of course Hallmark will dig their feet into the sand and will stand by their horrible mistake. They wouldn't admit it or correct it in a million years!!! They no longer have class enough for that!!
I don't know who is doing the programming for Hallmark these days but they need to be put up in front of a firing squad - get my little play on words. They have gone astray, gotten away from who Hallmark was and what they stood for! First the Waltons go and of all shows Last Man Standing is put in its place - a show with a teenage girl with a baby out of wedlock, a mother that teaches her daughters how to sneak out of the house after midnight behind the fathers back to meet boys and so much more immoral behavior. Not much love or morals from the mother in this mother or the kids in this family being shown at all. Then Christiana gets fired! Then they take off the air Little House On The Prarie and put on yet another dose of Tim Allen, waaaay too much Tim Allen. Then to make matters worse they put on the campy Brady Bunch - they have to be pulling our chain with this one. Why not the wonderful The Andy Griffith Show, a show loved by almost everyone.but The Brady Bunch, you have got to be kidding!! I use to watch Hallmark Channel all day long - hated The Middle though another dysfunctional family. So I would turn it when that came on. Then I would turn it back on again when The Golden Girls came back on and watched all the Frasiers and Cheers - love those shows. I would cat nap thru I Love Lucy. But now I don't turn Hallmark on until The Golden Girls come on. H&F is just not Home and Family without Christiana and Debbie is sickening hard to take - she's awful but Hallmark will cram her down our throats (but not mine I can't take her for two seconds - that falseness egads!)..No thank you and no thank you now to your sponsors and to the 18+ Hallmark cards a month I use to buy each and every month, and no thank you to the Hallmark ornaments that I have bought for the past 30 years! I am done with Hallmark. They threw me away, I am doing the same back. I am done with them just like they proved they are done with me!!! Let their millenials take my place if they will and if they can. My money isn't good enough! I'm too old for Hallmark, just like Christiana, who btw looks gorgeous every single day she was on air far prettier then the clown that they choose to try to fill her shoes. Christiana was ageless. What were they thinking of if indeed age was the issue?? She was so warm and wonderful. And one more thing, I thought age discrimination was against the law!!! If I were Christiana I would go after them with both barrels and make it public. And if it's Mark's jealously I'd let that out too! Mark did seem to like Christiana though. But he and Debbie are like oil and vinegar that the show is trying to make it work and it just doesn't!!! Hallmark has lost many viewers from my neck of the woods. Lots of angry people still. Hallmark thinks it will go away. Hmmm, I don't think so. This was such a major mistake that they will never admit to making. Because of firing Christiana and the way it was done (classless), they have ruined everything Hallmark for me. I'm done with them!! American Grettings and Boutique Cards here I come! Even as Hallmark cards are struggling they pull this, the firing of Christiana Ferrare to help them stay afloat!!????? It will do just the opposite and unless they "fire" their programmer who is making all these ludicrous decisions on the Hallmark Channel - they will find there are others out there like me that are also refusing anything to do with Hallmark!!!

Waltons now Little House

I was devastated when you took off the Waltons and have been praying you put it back on. Then, you take off Little House?! I look forward to watching both of those shows and to add insult to injury you replace them with Last Man Standing (terrible show and in reruns on about 5 channels). Your programming dept needs to be put to task. There's now nothing on your channel I care to watch, esp with all the Christmas shows on all year. I also agree you have a diversity problem.

Chesapeake Shores

I really like your new show Chesapeake Shores and the beautiful scenery in which it is filmed. However, as a lifelong Marylander, I don't believe anyone from Maryland is fooled into thinking this location is anything close to the Chesapeake Bay. Beginning with the crabs on the first show. I was floored to see them eating crab legs instead of Maryland Blue Crabs. Someone is not doing their research at all. It takes me back to the old time tv shows when everything was FAKE.

Lack of diversity in lead characters on Hallmark channel

I enjoy the movies. The wholesome themes are rare these days. Please note that these stories could be a little diverse. I would like to see pure and wholesome stories from African Americans, Mexican Americans, and Asian Americans as well. Please take this into consideration.

Thank you for listening
