Home & Family: Christina

I have just discovered where Christina has been these past weeks. I thought she was on vacation, or ill. After looking online, I discovered the " real truth". Sadly, I felt compelled to write this complaint. Christina added such class and style to Home and Family. She was a bright spot in daytime television. She and Mark complimented each other very well. I cannot believe when something is not broken...why try to fix it. This was a huge mistake on your part, and very unfair to the viewing audience. It appears that many viewers are upset over this terrible decision.Sadly, I will no longer watch the program. Debbie is cute, but just does not have what is needed to be the host. I am sure Christina would never come back, and I certainly do not blame her. The way this was done, unfair to the audience and Christina, will affect my future purchases of Hallmark merchandise. It seems you don't promote the values you advertise. Really, bad decision on you part!!!

Home & Family

First you fire Cristina Ferrare. Now Orly Shank goes on Facebook asking for ideas for the demographic Cristina represented. When I question the move, she gets sarcastic with me, and gets her friends to attack me because she cannot. When I answer them back, she gets Matt Rogers to call me evil and the devil. This is his comment as I am sure the entire post will be deleted soon:

Orly Shani, I see you....

I see how you are always one of the first ones on the set and one of the last ones to leave...And when you leave you have your hands full of boxes and items that (YOU PURCHASED YOURSELF) & hustle to the set to make good segments for your viewers.

I see the way you treat people on the set, from crew members to guests on the show to visitors, etc...You are always first class, treat people like gold and always have a huge smile and a kind word for everybody. You make people laugh and everybody wants to be around you when you are on the show.

I see you are a phenomenal mother to your children, wife to your husband and still find time to contribute to your family by putting in long hours of work!

I see you put together cutting edge segments that are hip, trendy and extremely valuable to those who want to make themselves look better.

Now, with this thread, I see you reaching out to kindly help even MORE people. 👍🏼 You are the ONLY person on the show that has ever done this. Well Done. I wish I would've thought of this. 😬
So now I see the negativity directed towards you when you have only and always been kind and respectful to everyone. As your coworker and friend it makes me sad to see such mean spirited people attack someone who is genuinely kind and good.... But consider the source and where it is coming from. It is coming from a place of anger and bitterness that they have inside of themselves.

A good friend of mine once told me, "don't ever let sin against you produce sin in you"... In this case, don't ever let the ugliness in someone else's heart discourage your heart which I believe is genuine and kind.

These "haters" don't know what they don't know and they only listen to what they want to hear....Our family is stronger than ever and they can't stand it. Our ratings have skyrocketed since Dollywood and they don't understand it. We just got renewed for Season 5 and they don't want to hear it. Your segments rank the highest and are always in the 1st hour of the show and they try to ruin it. 😜

This show is a gift to people, really helps people and has a heart for the masses of ALL ages! The devil will do whatever he can to try to stop it but he has no power! Good ALWAYS prevails over evil and "at least in this thread" evil has shown its face and can't win! When people can start thinking with their brains and making comments with their heart, it's not hard to figure this stuff out. 🙄

I love you sister. Keep shining. We have ALOT of work to do!

DIVERSITY PLEASE

MAYBE WE NEED TO PROTEST TO DIRECT TV, DISH AND COMCAST TO REMOVE HALLMARK FROM THE PROGRAMMING. I AM GETTING, AS ARE OTHERS AS I READ THE ABOVE THREADS, OF SEEING NOTHING BUT CAUCASIAN STORYLINERS. I'M BEGINNING TO THINK THE PROGRAMMING HEAD IS REFUSING TO HAVE SAID DIVERSITY ON ITS NETWORK. THE DAYS OF THE 50'S ARE GONE AND NOT COMING BACK! WHY IS IT SO IMPORTANT TO SHOW ONLY WHITE PEOPLE FALLING IN LOVE? YOUR MOTTO PURPORTS FAMILY, LOVE..TOGETHERNESS... SEEMS TO ME IT'S A SEGWAY TO CULT, HATE, APARTHEID. GET IT TOGETHER HALLMARK! WE ARE WATCHING AND WILL NOT SUPPORT THIS.

Home & Family

HALLMARK = HYPOCRITE, One who PRETENDS, is DECEITFUL.

While Hallmark touts FAMILY, LOVE, RESPECT, LOYALTY they have lost complete credibility. They do not back up the message they are preaching & shoving down loyal viewers necks. Instead, they want more VIEWERS! ....All in the form of a wolf in sheep's clothing. GREED.

Like trash, they discarded their Matriarch, anchor and reason to to believe in them.

They are VILE.

Home & Family firing

There are hundreds, if not thousands, of complaints online regarding the replacement of Cristina Ferrare on the Home & Family Show.
Personally, I feel you have sold us a "bill of goods" about what your channel stands for, i.e. values, home, family and sense of comfort and, community. This woman was the embodiment of all of what your channel purportedly represents. In fact, it was all a sham. It was like firing your mother and then to add insult to injury, making believe she never existed.

While we are at it, my officemates want to know what you did with Tanya Memme and her beautiful daughter Ava.... We are all disgusted. We have stopped watching, DVR ing, and some have cancelled Hallmark Channel from their cable service.

As for buying Hallmark products, you certainly have put the end to that!

Admit your grave mistake, bring her back if she'll return, and promise never to screw with your loyal viewers and their obvious
loyalty and preferences again. Yes, I did use that word all your Hallmark/Crown suits. In the Northeast, we tell it like it is.
What a mess you created. Now FIX IT!

I enjoy the storylines in hallmark programming but I'm getting really frustrated with your selection of characters. People of color love Christmas and fall in love but your channel never displays this possibility.

Political ads on Hallmark stations

Do we really have to see Hillary Clinton ads on the Hallmark station? She can have all of the other liberal TV stations. Please leave the Hallmark stations non - political.

Christina Ferrare

I am very disappointed in the Hallmark Channel because you let Christina go. What your executives did reminds me of the Today show when they replaced Jane Pauley with Deborah Norville because she was younger and the backlash that followed. Why did Mark get to stay on with the show? Debbie may be nice but the rapport with Mark is awkward at times. Furthermore, the way in which you replaced Christina was awful, with loyal viewers wondering why she was not on the show. She did not even get a chance to say good-bye to her fans. What a way to treat a "family" member. I change the channel now and watch other programs. Hallmark executives should be ashamed of themselves, but I am sure that they do not care what loyal viewers have to say on this subject.

Christina is the heart of Home & Family

The show is not the same without Christina and Tanya Mark & Christina worked so well together. Debbie and Mark do not have the chemistry. Please bring back Christina, or there will be one more disgruntled viewer, who will no longer be watching Home & Family.

Firing of Cristina Ferrare

I know you've probably heard it all by now and my belief is you will never fully understand or care about how horrible and wrong your decision was to remove Cristina from Home and Family. I've tried several times to watch the show since but it's just not the same. I'm sure Debbie is a very nice person,, I used to like many of her segments but is not a good fit as the full time co-host. Cristina and Mark were so good together, now everything seems so forced... so sad that you have brought down a once fun show to watch.

firing Christina

Let me say I love Hallmark channel, and I actually enjoy the Christmas in July. However,
I can't understand why in the world you would get rid of Christina on Home and Family and replace
her with Debbie. This used be be my favorite TV show, then Laura dissappeared, then Tanya, and now
Christina. Her and Mark had the right chemistry as hosts and the show just isn't the same I really couldn't
give a hoot about Debbie's swimsuit show on ice. Seems like the family has fallen apart, and it's really a shame.

Christina Ferrare

Another unhappy Ex-H&F viewer...This is the most shameful and outright worst decision made in TV history. You must be a group of fools to get rid of Cristina. Also the way you went about it is very unprofessional. I guess the rest of the staff is so needy of a job they didn't let their morals dictate to what should have been an outright stand out, where the cast refused to go on without Cristina...and you call yourself friends, what a farce. That is what I would have done. Now you have unhappy customers who refuse to watch the show, so I'm guessing your ratings will be low and the show will get cancelled leaving everybody without jobs! Way to go!

I also ask what audience are you hoping for? I guess you should boot all your older lady shows then because to go after a younger audience on H&F when your channel is geared toward older ladies makes no sense what so ever.

Cristina will rise above and leave you all looking like a bunch a fake people without any morals, which is already starting to happen.

How anybody can make a decision like this based on age (or go along with the decision) makes me wonder how you can look your parents and grandparents in the eye! SHAME ON ALL OF YOU #hallmarkhasnoheart

Firing of christina

I cannot believe that you are firing christina and replacing her with Debra. She does not know how to relate to an audience . She does not have what christine has. Her and mark we're great together. Her and mark do not have that sparkle that mark and christine have together.who was the brains behind this , they need to be fired instead. What idiot's. Don't know when they got something gold. Bring christina back. The hallmark channel will regret Thier stupid decision they made.also bring Tanna memme back and get rid of Debra. Or is that Debra knows someone or doing something special for someone.what a shame. They got rid of their star. They will be sorry. Like I said, they will be sorry and will end losing in the long run for Thier stupid error. How sad.

Christmas only movies for 2 months!

Dear Hallmark! I pay extra for this channel because I love it! I Love Lucy it is my Favorite! But this is the last year I will pay for you if you do the 2 months of Christmas 24/7! Dont get me wrong I love Christmas! But...24/7 from a station I watch at least 70% of the time is way to much. You actually loose me for the whole 2 months! Please reconsider this! Everything else about your channel is perfect!

Diversity

I love to watch the shows on Hallmark channel and I even love Christmas in July. What I don't love is the lack of diversity in your movies. I don't see any people of color falling in love, your movies are all white, I know I watched all weekend. Can you please show more diversity. I want to continue to watch your channel but I can't if I never see any changes.

Complete disgrace Christmas in July

What a complete and total lack of respect for the holiday season why hallmark would start showing Christmas shows in July nobody wants to see that and we all understand that the Christmas season and all holidays start earlier and earlier every year but six months this is July I am so so disappointed our children and all of us even as adults look forward to that time of year and there's nothing wrong with starting it even in November but we're talking about July isn't anything Secret anymore just to try and get maybe ratings cannot understand . And on another note I don't believe Hallmark should start showing more African-Americans Latinos or Mexicans for that matter . If they don't like it let them change the channel says America Hallmark is America never happy African-Americans will leave it at that

Christina Ferrare

I was shocked and disappointed to learn that Christina Ferrare had been fired and replaced with a younger co-host. What idiot made that decision? Christina was the heart of “Home and Family”. Her delightful attitude and wisdom carried the show. It appears that like many television shows Hallmark management has decided to discriminate against Christina for her age, shame on you. I hope there was be a movement to bring her back. Until then, my friends and I will not be watching the Hallmark Channel or purchasing any of your products.

More diversity

Hallmark there should be more diversity in the characters in your movies ❤. I believe there should be more African Americans, Hispanics, Asians.. etc. in your movies,. I believe the love between more characters like this will be just as equally beautiful as the ones in previous movies. But please please please!! 💙💙 I would be oh so so happy if you did! And I believe many other viewers as well would be pleased. :) Thanks.

so-called "Christian" programming

Last I knew, Christmas was supposed to be kept as a special season, NOT for the commercial purposes of the Hallmark corporation.
We should celebrate all seasons. By showing inferior movies about Christmas is bad enough, but starting in July for your own profit motivation is cheapening the real season. Shame on you.
Additionally, I was taught that we should value wisdom, not replace it with the youngest person for the sake of your ratings--i.e., your profits. Surely Jesus would think the same way about profits and money as you---OH WAIT--NO!

Change at Home and Family

I am another sad viewer who was at first just angry like many others. I will miss Christina as host of Home and Family. I'm confused about the values on this station. Age discrimination didn't seem possible. But, alas, sometimes things aren't as they seem--this is the theme of most Hallmark movies, after all. The show is too frenetic without her stabilizing presence. You disappointed a lot of people. This was a fairly new executive at Hallmark Channel, right?

Stop the Christmas movies in July

I was surprised to see one of your many lame Christmas movies on air Friday, July 8. I looked up your programming and discovered that you are showing Christmas movies for an entire week.

Please stop this practice. The movies are subpar, and you don't resume regular programming until late at night.

During the holiday season you ruin the programming. Why can't you show an occasional Christmas movie during the appropriate season instead of blocking off the programming so that we can't watch anything else?

I paid extra to get the Hallmark Channel when I got my satellite hooked up and I regret that decision.

Lack of diversity

My dear Hallmark we need to see more African American, Asian and Hispanic storylines. Preferably Hallmark will continue to do Christian/inspirational themes. Young thirty something African American women fall in love as well. Let's not leave it there. You need to show age diversity as well. I am a single 52 year old African American woman full of love and humor. I am devoted to my church and my job as a teacher is a blessing. I am a baby boomer caring for my mother who has dementia. I don't have my own children but Jesus trusts me to nurture approximately eighteen every year. I've been teaching for nearly thirty years. Most people would say I am attractive and fun to be around. Your ad for this role should read "Looking for a Angela Bassett type." Thank you Hallmark in advance you are too smart to let this go.

Christmas movies in July, I'm over it.

So Hallmark shows Christmas movies in the summer and Christmas movies in the winter, Please STOP. I know there are some good Beach summertime movies out there, lots of them. Get off of it, show some good movies and get off the Christmas thing.
