Hallmark Channel Fall 2010 Schedule; 62nd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards Winners

We finally can reveal the Hallmark Channel Fall 2010 schedule! We all know The Martha Stewart Show and other Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia programming is coming starting Sept. 13, but not to fret, all of your favorite enduring Hallmark comedies will remain! Before the fall schedule starts, there will be a three-day sitcom marathon for Labor Day weekend! On Saturday, Sept. 4, Hallmark Channel presents a full-day marathon of a show where everybody knows their name...Cheers! The marathon will run from 6am-4am. Then on Sunday, Sept. 5, Hallmark does the same for the Tony Danza sitcom Who's the Boss? And on Labor Day itself, Hallmark Channel will give us a full-day event for I Love Lucy from 6am-4am.
Moving on to the fall schedule, Hallmark Channel will try and find the best possible sitcoms in and out of the Martha Stewart block starting Sept. 13, so be patient as they try. As of now the schedule will start with two-hours of The Golden Girls weekdays from 8am-10am. The Martha Stewart Show is next at 10am, followed by Whatever with Alexis & Jennifer at 11am. At 12pm, the half-hour series Mad Hungry with Lucinda Scala Quinn airs followed by the half-hour Everyday Food. From 1pm-4pm, it will be a block of more Martha series with From Martha's Kitchen airing back-to-back in the 1pm hour, followed by half-hours of From Martha's Garden and From Martha's Home. Two more episodes of From Martha's Kitchen will air in the 3pm hour leading into two encores of The Martha Stewart Show at 4pm & 5pm. Leading out of the block, will be Who's the Boss from 6pm-8pm, so that remains the same as when it started on Aug. 23. In primetime, Touched by an Angel and the Hallmark movie will remain from 8-11pm. And in the late night comedy block, The Golden Girls airs 11pm-1am and Cheers from 1am-4am.
On weekends, as of now the schedule will remain the same with I Love Lucy sandwiched with the movie with Lucy generally airing 6am-9am and 1am-4am (at times it is expanded depending on the movies). And finally in primetime on Sunday, Sept. 19 at 9pm, the all-new special Martha Stewart Presents: The Women Who Dress America will premiere (it will encore the next day at 1pm).
Now remember Hallmark is trying to see what works best in and out of this new block, so please be patient as they are committed to airing the classic enduring series that we all know and love. Stay with us for any schedule changes, as always. As of now, Little House on the Prairie will be just resting and The Partridge Family and M*A*S*H will continue to rest as it has been.
View and discuss Hallmark Channel's Fall 2010 schedule and as I mentioned stay with us for any further changes. Stay tuned tomorrow for our annual look at the New York City local fall
