As The Martha Stewart Show premiered on the Hallmark Channel on Monday, she didn't have much of an audience.

Only 394,000 people tuned into watch Martha, which is down 50% from the repeats that network aired in the same period last year.

Although Hallmark is not making "rash judgments" due to the ratings!

"We do expect it will take time [for the audience to find it] and not be an overnight success," said Hallmark Channels president and CEO Bill Abbott. "We are planning for a few bumps in the road."

Ha. You got 'em!

    I think it was a mistake in making it an all Martha channel. Putting her show on once a day would have been enough. And have you seen the show with her horrible bitch daughter Alexis? OMG! BAD!



  2. 2

    I think it's time for her to retire. We're all on Martha overload. Go already.

    What do you expect, shes horrible. Whenever Ive watched the Martha Stewart Show she treats her guests like their stupid children and her audience with contempt. Its like she thinks shes Queen Shit when shes actually just an idiotic liar who ended up in jail for her actions. Next…

    Martha Stewart reminds me of one of those soccer moms , you know the kind of soccer moms that are secretly crazy and go around knocking off banks and convient stores.

    She's way too arrogant for me, I've never liked her. Not only that, they took replaced the Golden Girls with her show…that show is 1000 times better.

    Has anybody at home ACTUALLY made any of that crap she does on her show? I didn't think so.

    This DISGUSTING EVIL BITCH should choke on her own vomit!!! Don't report on this BITCH anymore unless its to tell us she has died a VERY HORRIBLE AND PAINFUL DEATH!!!

    For a self-proclaimed expert in home entertaining, how come Martha doesn't seem to know she's stayed (waaay) too long at the party? Does she not notice the yawns and glares? Or is she just ignoring them?

    Is hostessing suppose to be a form of punishment now?

    It's obvious Hallmark channel has braindead viewers who will eventually come alive with the excellent programming from Martha Stewart.

    Nielsen ratings is hocus-pocus stuff done in secrecy with no transparency that's no different from pulling numbers out of the ether. Nielsen rating system should stick to its stranglehold on trash programming on broadcast tv. Nielsen has no relevance to the Hallmark channel, which stands for quality tv programming.

    They are not taking into account that all AT&T Uverse customers had all their Hallmark channels dropped because of a price dispute. We want our Hallmark channels back but they are sooo GREEDY and want to much money. AT&T said they would not raise our prices so they were forced to drop the channels.
    They are stupid to say a show bombed if thousand could not watch because of their GREED!!

    I actually wasted a good DVR spot to watch this when i got home from work. I ended up fast forwarding through most of it and then turning it off. It was AWFULLLL!!! She had her shitteous daughter on to promo her even more shitteous show call, "Whatever." Her daughter's attitude was awful! It looked as though she had an even bigger big up her ass than her mother. WHY would anyone give HER a spot on TV? Anyway the show ended up being one big promo for all the new Martha shows on Hallmark… which all looked tragic.. a car crash waiting to happen! BIG MISTAKE being so greedy and moving your show to Hallmark Channel.

    I work in customer service for her magazine…and people aren't happy about her moving to Hallmark…especially when they can't get Hallmark.
