The Waltons

How long are you going to keep the Waltons off the air? My favorite show. You put on 3 hours of a show I've never heard of. Why not at least put the waltons on for 2 hours. Who's behind this stupid programming? I will be watching the INSP channel from now on. No more Hallmark for me or my family!!!!!

Programming

I am not sure if anyone really wants to bother putting complaints in here. I am pretty sure they do not listen or review the thoughts and feeling of their viewers. If they did, we would receive a response or better yet see action taken. My advice would be to find another programming channel to watch. It will not be as family and Christian oriented, but the shows they are showing right now are not either. So it really would not matter. It is a shame for such a great thing to turn into what it has. God Bless you all in looking for what you need!

Total Lack of Diversity on Hallmark

Dear Hallmark,

I love Hallmark movies! I look forward to the Christmas movies every year - to see the new ones. I also love the family and romance movies during the year. I realize that Hallmark is targeting a certain demographic, and I may not fit that demographic, but I love the movies anyway.

Why are there no black leads in any of these movies? Black women are typically portrayed as the sidekick or the secretary. I have noticed that a few have been portrayed as the boss. That's a welcome sight, but let's get with the program. This is 2016 after all.

Thank you and I hope that Hallmark reads these posts.

Inexpensive Production

Would the Hallmark Channel utterly collapse if it actually shot a movie in the United States instead of dreary, gray Vancouver? For example, a rudimentary internet search would reveal that Texas and British Columbia are not similar (Country Wedding). This isn't naked nationalism talking just a recognition that if someone is swimming in a pool, the bystanders shouldn't be wearing coats (Unleashing Mr. Darcy).

Recylced Programming

You really should be ashamed of yourselves for recycling the same shows over and over again. I really don't know how your stations stays on.

Let's start with the " The Golden Girls" you run the same 20 episodes over an over again. The series went on for 7 years and you keep putting on the same stuff. How about " Murder She Wrote"; the same 15 episodes. She went on for 12 years and this is all you can put on. Shame on you!

How about the recycled movies which most are boring. A rated G movies does not need to be boring to make viewers fall asleep. Check out the old movies of the 30's to the 50's they had interesting storylines and entertaining. You really need to get your act together and change your ways.

First of all, stop being cheap and buy more episodes of TV programming and make your movies more interesting, instead of a bore feast for people to fall asleep. I always put on the "Hallmark Station" to put me to sleep, its a guarantee.

I enjoy watching quality programming, that why I put on your station, rather than horrible reality shows and simple chatter that is on the other stations.

By the way, I'm not some old fogie, but just a person of knowledge of good taste and appreciate good programming and movies.

Absence of Black Women and White Men Interracial Romance as Lead Characters on Hallmark Movies

While I enjoy your family entertainment focus, I’m very disappointed in the lack of racial diversity that appears on your shows and movies. We live in a county with a black President, Black First Lady, and Black First Daughters, yet black people are very noticeably absent from much of your content. It’s hard to believe that this is just a simple oversight. It would benefit your brand to include diversity within your movies and television shows. That does not mean to simply make “black” movies or “white” movies. Why not show both black and white people being friends and romantic love interests in your movies? Our President of this great country is the product of an interracial marriage. Why not have interracial couples in your movies and TV shows? More and more, the world is becoming more diverse and diversity is celebrated. I think Hallmark should be a bit more forward thinking and show the changing times within your programming.

There are MANY black women who watch Hallmark, and many of those black women would like to see themselves reflected on the network in the way of lead roles. There are also MANY black women who watch Hallmark that are involved in interracial relationships. Why not show a black woman being courted by a white man? That’s real life for MANY black women in this country. There are so black actresses that would be perfect for Hallmark movies – Renee Goldsberry, Tika Sumpter, Joy Bryant, Regina Hall, Rashida Jones, Sharon Leal, KeKe Palmer, Paula Patton, Stacy Dash, Tatiana Ali, Keshia Knight Pulliam, Jurnee Smollet, Tia and Tamera Mowry, etc. The list could literally go on and on. And, these people are actresses – so of course, they want to work. They need employment, and a platform to be seen. Hallmark would be the perfect place for them.

Black women don’t simply need to be the secretary, the boss, the best friend, or the sassy “in your face” persona. Black women should be the romantic leads, and have a white best friend who will prop them up. Why not have the white best friend be the one to tell the black woman that she needs to go after the cute white guy who has been crushing on her for months?

Commercials

Over the years I have become a hallmark movie junkie. I can always count on them to be clean and wholesome and family oriented.
But lately, I have lost my interest. It is not in the content. It's not in the talent of the actors and the beautiful scenery.
Keep in mind, I have gone to personal expense to get both hallmark channels. But to my amazement, there are SO many
commercials, at times 8 to 10 minutes running, that I am losing my focus watching your movvies. I have missed the
endings of several new hallmark movies because the endings got lost in the commercials. The movies are too good to be
ruined by SO many commercials.. And it insults me that I pay cable to get your movies and I have to put up with commercials.

Diversity

I have nothing but love for the kind of movies you show on the Hallmark Channel particularly the mysteries as I do love mysteries. But my question is why there is no diversity at all? There are many actors and actresses of color who would have been able to play the roles in Murder She Baked, Garage Sale Mystery, Aurora Teagarden, The Gourmet Detective. How about Murder She Quilts starring Tatyana Ali or America Ferrerra? How about other diverse actors and actresses playing in mysteries or love stories such as Tika Sumpter, Nicole Behari, Keke Palmer, Jamie Chung, Cierra Ramirez , Journee Smollet, Thandie Newton, Jasmine Guy, Angela Bassett, Tempestt Bledsoe, Keisha Knight Pulliam, Malcolm Jamal-Warner, Larenz Tate, Boris Kodjoe, etc. Please Hallmark please come into the 21st century world of diversity.

THE WALTONS

I think it's very horrible your such a family channel and yet break promises. The ONLY reason we keep our cable was due to your channel basically an that's because we enjoyed the older Shows. The Walton's being our favorite. If your not going to show them again announcement would be nice. Then we could purchase the Set from eBay an be done.

Information on Cast

We have always enjoyed learning about cast members. Birth, death, body of work. It is almost as interesting as the movies(but not quite!) . We love Hallmark, and it is so nice to not be embarrassed by language!
I assume there is a union problem or some legal reason you have stopped telling us
details about actors.

Thank you Hallmark. We love you.

Lack of Diversity

I used to be an avid Hallmark Channel viewer. Every Sunday after church and football, of course, I'd be in front of the tv watching some romantic comedy/love story on the Hallmark Channel. I started to slack off and even encouraged my family to discontinue watching Hallmark Channel because although the movies are usually pretty good and clean, I don't recall EVER seeing an African American or any other minority, let alone, in a lead role. I may be mistaken about other minorities, but I'm CERTAIN that in the years that I've watched Hallmark Channel I've NEVER seen an African American couple in a lead role and this really disappoints me. After going through the complaints, I see that a lot of people are upset about the Waltons going away and others are concerned about the lack of diversity, so it's definitely a problem that not only I saw, but many others. I think that in 2016, it's really archaic to discriminate on certain ethnicities/races/cultures and while I'm an educated African American woman and would love to see more of "my people" on screen, I'm an advocate of seeing all races on screen. Please do better Hallmark Channel because with all of this #oscarsowhite buzz going around, the last thing you'd need is an open letter to this network about its lack of diversity in 2016.

Thank you and have a great! Oh and by the way, it's okay to show more Christian movies too. From November to January there are tons of Christmas love movies shown on this network, but don't forget the REAL reason for the season.

Oh and no, I'm not a crazy lady just trying to get attention or may be I am, but it doesn't negate the point that there is a lack of diversity on this network.

Unleashing mr Darcy

Awful movie!! I had high hopes, but whoever wrote the script- major fail! The lead female character- was awful! These two had no chemistry! How can two people believably fall in love- if they have never had a real conversation with each other!!
Don't waste your time!

Line-up of shows on Hallmark Channel

For the most part, I really enjoy the Hallmark Channel's line-up of movies and shows. My complaint is, why do you keep playing the same sitcoms over and over and OVER and Over again???? Can't you think of any new ones to play that are good wholesome shows? If not, I have a few suggestions. Major Dad, Benson, Evening Shade and Newhart to name a few. I would love to see some of these shows brought back. How many times do we have to watch the Waltons and Little House on the Prairie and Golden Girls before we have all had enough? I am also in agreement about The Bridge movie as what some other writers have mentioned. Why would you think that we would want to wait a whole year to finish watching a story line? My husband and I were very upset when we got to the end of the movie part one and found out you were making us wait a whole year before we could see the ending. Thank you for listening and try to see what you can do about some new sitcoms, Okay? Thanks.

Bring back the Waltons

Hi Hallmark:

There are thousands upon thousands of Walton fans out there.... more than your network apparently realizes at this time. Like many, many Walton fans, we are very disappointed that one of the best ever TV family shows is not on the Hallmark channel this year.

Hallmark channel will shortly realize that viewership is going to continue to go down weekdays from 5-8 pm since Last Man Standing replaced the Waltons.

The solution is simple ... bring back the Waltons. There is no saturation point in viewing this show because the values and storytelling that this series provides is timeless.

Commercials/advertisements

Hello,

I wanted to express my feelings regarding ALL of the continuous commercials/advertisements for medications.
TOO MANY! Not all of your viewers are interested in seeing these - over and over.

I'm wondering if there are other companies, besides pharmaceutical companies who would pay for advertising.
How about HALLMARK commercials?

The Walton's missing from your line up

It's bad enough you air the same Christmas movies for three solid months. You failed to returned Rhe Waltons on 1/4/16 as promised.
You put on Last Man Standing.
I didn't watch it when it was on free broadcasting and I won't watch it now.
Stupid jokes and smart Alec kids that make a joke of the father.
Return The Walron's as promised. I am boycotting Hallmak Channel and all Hallmark products until you come to your senses.

The Waltons

I agree with previous complaints about the Christmas movie marathon. The end of October thru the end of December is too much. I just had to watch other stations during that time period. I am a big fan of your station but I enjoy your regular evening line-up.

I am extremely disappointed that The Waltons is no longer airing in the evenings so it can be watched after school and work. Please consider your loyal "regular" fans. The Waltons is one of the most wholesome series ever presented and it is a privilege for new generations to be able to view a real family series. Last Man Standing is just not cutting the mustard.

Please bring back the Waltons to your evening line-up - your true fans never get tired of it.

Thank you.

The Bridge

Hallmark,

What you did with the movie was inexcusable. You never said it was a two part movie, but to show part two ONE YEAR LATER was CRUEL,DECEVING and HEARTBREAKING.
They showed clips from part Two so I'm guessing they filmed the whole movie. I can understand showing part two the following week, but ONE YEAR LATER INEXCUSABLE.
WHY did do this terrible travesty to us many viewers.
I had to get the book after the movie to see what happened. Very Good, but WHY ONE YEAR LATER????
Getting the book was a wait because so many wanted to know what happened.
PLEASE,PLEASE,PLEASE show us part two NOW.
If you any other movies coming up please no two part a year apart.
I probably will NOT watch any more movies because of this.
Whoever decided to do this should be FIRED!!! What POOR decisions. SHAME on Hallmark!!!

Lack of Diversity

I am an avid Hallmark Channel watcher. It is refreshing to have the luxury to watch a romance movie with your family. However, I am deeply concerned at the lack of an African American in a leading role for Hallmark romance movies. My young daughter noticed this, and asked why is it that she never sees brown girls like her in love in one of the movies. I couldn't answer that question. So I now ask you Hallmark, why is it that I have yet to see an African American in a leading-not supporting-role of one of your romance movies? Why is it that Brooke Shields is hired for a mystery series but for some reason, a woman of color is not hired for a leading mystery series? It is as if you're saying, that we do not love, or have no concept of love or family. I would argue that we too fall head over heels, romantically, sappy, rosy, in love just like anyone else. We value family. We share the same feelings. So please stop marginalizing us and indicating through your countless romance movies that there is no variety in love. Love is diverse! It comes in many shapes, sizes, and YES ethnicities and cultures. We live in a heavily diverse country. It would be great if your channels began to reflect that. We exist, we love, we hurt, and we triumph too. Can you not see that?

Sincerely,
A concerned viewer

Where are the Waltons?

The Waltons was just about the nicest family series ever created. I watched it diligently every evening possible. The the
perpetual Christmas movies pushed it off the air. Don't get me wrong...I am a Christian and love Christmas. But repeating them over and over and over is just too much for 3 whole months! Please! What were you thinking???? Enough already!
PELISSE bring back the WATONS! I see I am not the only one who feels this way!

Maybe if we all start emailing the director of programming for the Hallmark Channel, they will listen to what people want. Which is the Walton's to return to the Hallmark Channel, like they promised before the Christmas movies began on October 31, 2015. This is the email address [email protected] God Bless You All!!

You Broke Your Word

While I'm not a fan of the Christmas movies from October thru the end of December; I am however, a big fan of The Waltons. Your station assured us that The Waltons would return on January 4th. What happened Hallmark? On January 4th I gleefully turned on the television to enjoy one of our most beloved shows and I'm looking at Tim Allen on the screen in some kind of second rate, half assed attempt at entertaining? Words cannot adequately express my disappointment.

I have three questions. 1. Which feeble minded individual in an attempt to justify their paycheck decided to remove such a quality program as The Waltons with such drivel as Last Man Standing? 2. Why would you lie to your viewers? 3. Would you please put The Waltons back on immediately?

Please listen to your viewers before you have no viewers left.

G.T.L.
