Despite the cancellation, Hallmark Channel will continue airing the daytime talk show through the end of summer 2012.
"The Martha Stewart Show" has been canceled by Hallmark Channel after airing on the cable channel since 2010. The network announced on January 4 that it pulls the plug on the weekday one-hour talk show after its current season ends the production this May.
Still, the show will continue to air through the end of summer 2012, though it will likely feature repeats. In a joint statement, Hallmark and MSLO [Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia] also said that they "are in discussions about potential new programming and concepts for daytime."
Martha Stewart's eponymous cooking-and-lifestyle show first debuted in 2005 in syndication. The show began airing on Hallmark in September 2010, and snatched two Daytime Emmy Awards in its first season on the cable channel.
