Home & Family (2012– )
User ReviewsReview this title
I'm happy that Home&Family is continuing to run on the Hallmark channel and I wish them many years of success! I can't imagine not waking up to this show. My family and I became hooked this past Christmas. I love how it's actually something DIFFERENT than the norm. Comical, fun, and up-lifting.
I am a male in my mid 20s and I never thought I would like a show like this but here I am tuning in every morning. Maybe it's that I get tired of the "sameness"/typical formula that American television has displayed for years and Home & Family somewhat strays from those formulas. Or maybe it's just that H&F presents a warm and light-hearted, family oriented show that is great to wake up to. Cristina, Mark and their friends keep me laughing and entertained. This show truly gets me up and going every morning so I Thank Hallmark and the producers.
P.S. they just recently had Dame Edna as a guest, and it was hysterical.
I'm not familiar with any of the hosts, but they're all great in what they do. And I like that none of them are big celebrity blowhards.
Before writing this comment, I read through the reviews and discovered something interesting. Most of the poor reviews seem to be from fans of the show who were disgruntled for some reason or another. I don't know if their reasons are legit, or not, but I think it's relevant that these poor reviews were written by obvious fans of the show, which makes me think the show's rating has been artificially lowered.
Anyhow, I don't watch much TV, but I like this show and I hope Hallmark will continue making it for years to come.
and watched every day for two hours! They love the show because of Cristina she brought much love and joy and heart to the show! All of a sudden Cristina I was no longer on the show! They said she was on vacation and it continued for about three weeks! One morning they said Debbie Minneapolis will be the host with Mark Stienes! The devoted viewers did not know until recently the real reason Cristina is no longer there! She was let go because she was too OLD! She is such a classy, gracious, and loving woman who gave her heart to the show! The show no longer has the heart! So many devoted viewers are posting are no longer watching the show they are boycotting it not buying a hallmark products, etc. You may go to Maria Shriver Facebook live,, LA talk radio, and to Cristina Ferrera and see all the posts! I needed to post because this is such a devastating action on the part of Hallmark Channel and HomeAndFamily show, this is such a devastating action on the part of Hallmark Channel and HomeAndFamily cell when views post and comment about Cristina and why she was fired the posts are being detected or the fans are blocked from all social media that H&F is with!!!!!!
Sometimes a show featuring so many topics can be a mess. Somehow this show touches lightly on subjects and still remaining entertaining. Perhaps it could be a bit more informative about the important topics it touches on but that might be too heavy for the morning time slot that they reside in.
Being "light" keeps it moving along at a nice pace. Guests are usually "B listers" but that is definitely OK. Most "A listers" come off as self-important jerks. I just watched the Home & Family Christmas special that debuted last night (11/23) and so many people broke into tears talking about the families and keeping it real on so many levels - nicely done.
I adore this show. I enjoy the energy between all the people that appear regularly. Their interactions feel very authentic. You can tell their guests feel that energy and always seem so comfortable! I enjoy the topics they cover and often pick up tips or ideas that I find useful.
I hope that they have enough viewers to keep it around. If it's not your cup of tea that's fine. Maybe you prefer Today or if you're in So Cal, Good day LA. But there are some of us who don't need the political jabs (yes, I reside right of the middle) and just want enjoyable non-confrontational morning TV with people who seem, well, nice.
TV should be about variety since that is what makes the human race so unique. Thank God we don't all like the same things. I don't go onto IMDb to smack down the shows I don't like. Instead I don't watch but respect that others may enjoy them.
So you have your shows and let me have mine...
The concept is novel (filming in an actual house), the hosts can be likable and the topics are fine, but whoever is running/directing this show needs to be fired ASAP. I know it's a daytime talk show and I would normally never write anything about this sort of thing, but the way the show is run is just terrible, one of the worst I've ever seen. It's an insult to the viewers and to the hosts.
I'd rather watch "The 700 Club" at the same time on another network, and I'm not religious at all.
Hosts who care, spend time beforehand to actually read newspapers and care about current events, not whether or not it was written for them on cue cards so far away from the lens of the camera, we can always tell they're reading. My guess is they both arrive 30 minutes before air. It shows.
My advice: replace him with a real host. She can be salvaged and not look so intimidated (he relayed a story about both being in his trailer and her fetching coffee for him) by an ego maniac.
