The first sign of danger was when it moved from NBC to the Hallmark Channel last year. Then Hallmark cut her programming from 8 hours to 5. And now, the end. Martha’s show has been cancelled.
The news makes me sad. We all know Martha has an impressive work ethic. What I love about her show –whether I watched it or not, and yes, I’m part of the problem–is that it is an ode to hard work. Martha and her team conceive elaborate, beautiful sets and walk viewers through complicated recipes and crafts. In our tweet and app-happy society, their careful workmanship and commitment to excellence is inspiring.
Plus, Martha returned from prison a no-holds-barred flirt! You can see some of her lady sparkle in these clips and in any re-run featuring SNL’s Seth Meyers. The two of them have unexpected and adorable chemistry.
So tell me, did you watch Martha? Will you miss it?
Have a wonderful weekend!
