Heading overseas with my wonderful mom Rose. I'll keep you posted about our travels especially all the MAD good food I will surely find. To everyone who took the time to write messages of support, Thank-you. It really is encouraging to hear howany of you have learned from and been inspired by our MHTV show. Much more to come! Onward and upward (literally)!
Best, LSQ
PS just getting the hang of posting from my phone and without glasses too. You feel it?

  • I sent an email to Hallmark Channel expressing my unhappiness that they are not airing the show currently. I love how you explain what you cook and I truly enjoy listening to you. The show is practical and fun. Hope they will continue your show!!

  • Go, girls! I WAS WORRIED THERE FOR A FEW MINUTES; i
    CANNOT IMAGINE MY MORNINGS WITHOUT MAD HUNGRY!!!

    Have fun, but hurry back. Your show is better than
    therapy!! Take care, and thank you Martha! We love you too!

  • Ditto on trying to find out if there are going to be any more shows. I asked months and months ago and never received an answer. I am tired of reruns and even deleted the show from my DVR schedule. I get the impression it is over since nobody answers.

  • So I feel like I have been locked in a closet for a year. I don't know why I did not know that neither you or Martha were returning to Hallmark.
    I babysit for my grandson everyday so in between Disney shows I would try to catch both your show and Martha's but sometimes I listened with one ear and there were shows I missed . But I can't believe I had no clue you weren't coming back. How can I find out why and what happened? Are you planning a comeback? I loved watching you cook because I make some of the same recipes that were taught to me by my mom. Would love to know what is going on and what is to come. Enjoy your vacation with your mom.
    Thanks Susan

  • Heck, I was even enjoying the reruns as I expected the shows to start soon. Then this morning they were gone! Four hours of a Home Show!! And then the Waltons which I love; hope that's not gone next. I listen all day while I'm doing house work, etc. - don't just sit in front of the TV the whole day :) . I couldn't believe everything connected with Martha Stewart was gone, w/o a word of explanation or telling us where to go.

    I don't want the shows to end. First Everyday Food left PBS; I wrote, but there was no explanation (I want to put the magazine on my new I-Pad as soon as I figure out how to do it as I want to keep them all (they are so helpful), but I am running out of space). That was the main reason I started watching PBS on Saturdays. Now everything Martha is gone from Hallmark.

    Please come back. Guess the contract ran out, but I hope you'll have another one. Have a great vacation with your Mom. It's encouraging that you are talking about bringing back recipes (for a show, I believe).

  • I have enjoyed cooking shows and and learned something from most of them but your show was truely the verrrry best. A show for real people!! Especially for those of us in the fly-over states(North Dakota) and live in an extremely out of the way spot. So I stock up on food and then cook from what I have on hand always!!! Except for holidays. I so loved your show and I hope you will let us know when and where you will be back on the air. Envious of your vacation! :)

  • I LOVE Mad Hungry and have been using the great recipes.Infact I like LSQ the best and await return of her show. If this does not happen I will not be watching the Hallmark channel during the day.

  • Call Hallmark 1-818-755-2400 Tell them we want Nad Hungry back with all new episodes. I called and emailed.

  • No more Hallmark Channel until Mad Hungry returns. Did anyone watch that train wreck called Home and Family???? Cricket, cricket..... I didn't think so. Go Mad Hungry.

    Petra

  • I,too, submitted a request to Hallmark. I don't usually do that 'cause I didn't think they really care. However I always stopped what I was doing to watch "Martha" and MHTV. even the re-runs. I love Marie & Paige but their shows better improve a lot. I will never stop what I am doing to watch their shows. gonna keep a positive attitude & will so welcome back Mad Hungry for the upcoming NEW Season. Listen up Hallmark! will follow Lucinda whever she goes ! God Bless

  • Listen Up MH Viewers:

    10:00 Home and Family
    12:00 Marie
    1:00 Mad Hungry (All New Episode)
    1:30 Mad Hungry (Repeat Episode)
    2:00 Marie (repeated).

    Tell Hallmark Channel how to do it. We can make this happen.

    Annette

  • Plain and simple, we want Mad Hungry back on with new episodes. Don't just sit there people. WE CAN DO THIS !!!! Tell everyone you know who enjoys the show to contact Hallmark Channel and email them. There is room for Mad Hungry. A new episode and a repeat. DO IT NOW !

  • Oh, No !!! We are not taking this. Contact Hallmark Channel. Mad Hungry must continue.

    Carol

  • Lucinda,
    I watch your show everyday, I Dvdr it and watch it after work. I was disappointed last night when I was not able to tape it this morning. I've learned so much about cooking from you and I love all your recipes! I've just emailed Hallmark to let them know that I pick your show over all the shows at the food network. Have a great time with your mom, and I'll be looking out for you whether on Hallmark or a different channel. I am looking forward to your new cookbook as well!

  • Lucinda,

    Have a wonderful vacation. Mad Hungry will be back. These new shows are awful, especially "Home and Family". There is room for you on the Hallmark Channel.

    Kristie

  • Mad Hungry is not over. We absolutely can get it back. Don't let a network dictate what you can and can't watch. Tell Hallmark Channel you want all new episodes of Mad Hungry to be filmed.

  • What happened?.. All of a sudden you and Martha are no longer !!? I can barely believe it. I just about thought Martha owned the network. I lovred your show and was awaiting some new shows. Also Marc Marone was a great educational show for all ages. What are they doing over there I usesnto make my beds and do other chores with an ear listening and watching the shows, Marie will never do for me and the home
    Shows are not my thing. You had great and si,ple recipes and a lovely way about you.
    I will dearly miss you. Have a great vacation. Hoping you will return soon!!

  • Mad Hungry and Martha Steward Show are my main stay recipe/cooking help. They MUST RETURN! One extremely unhappy Hallmark viewer. I am sorry, but that new home show this morning was as bad as a talk show without substance.

  • Hey Everyone,

    I hope everyone who loves Mad Hungry will support the show and let the Hallmark Chanel aware that we want it back ASAP.

    Shawn

  • To All Mad Hungry Fans,

    Don't stop posting on here every day. Keep Mad Hungry ALIVE. Say hello and say how much we want new episodes of Mad Hungry made. Tell the Hallmark Channel EVERYDAY !!!!!

    Len

  • More people watch Mad Hungry than who will be watching Home and Family. Tell the Hallmark Channel to WAKE UP and give viewers what they want. Don't stop telling them.

    Phyllis

  • Call 1-818-755-2400 tell Hallmark Channel, bring back MAD HUNGRY WITH NEW NEW NEW EPISODES !!!!

  • There is no excuse. If you want Mad Hungry back. Tell the Hallmark Channel over and over again. We do make a difference.

    Kelly

  • Hi: I really like Mad Hungry and The Martha Stewart Show. There are not many shows out there like your and Marthas. I think HALLMARK CHANNEL MADE A HUGE MISTAKE. I always look forward to Martha's Halloween Ideas. I will admit I think her Magazine is lacking the covers for Halloween use to be FANTASTIC I was disappointed in 2012 October issue.

    Martha Always gave great Ideas for the Home and showing you how to re grout tub tile and all the handy stuff. HALLMARK CHANNEL REALLY SCREWED UP. We know where there heads are don't we??????????

    And I saw the New Show Home and Family and that was AWFUL and Marie I couldn't sit threw 5 minutes of it. And the Person who wrote above was right that was a TRAIN WRECK Home And Family.

    BRING BACK Martha Stewart, Lucinda Mad Hungry and also Pet Keeping with Marc Maroone I loved the information he gave us and I loved Harvey or was it Harry LOL that BIG BUNNY who was always on the SHOW

    CALL HALLMARK CHANNEL I AM 1-818-755-2400 and this is a REAL NUMBER I called and left a message telling them to bring MARTHA, Lucinda & Marc Maroone Back

    Hope you all have a nice day

  • OMG. I live in Bristol Tn. And there just ant nothing going to satisfy me like Lucinda I can't believe they would take and replace her and Martha with that kindergarten version of Lucinda and Martha (home and family) my 5 year old can take better video then those people here at the house with my cell phone taping me cooking and let me tell you I ant nothing to watch lol. I don't know how Lucinda can talk you through her recipes and cook and talk with her son and just keep the conversation going like she is talking right to you. Bless your heart Lucinda I miss you I used to cook alot with my mom and she died last christmas then I found your show and I don't know I put my little baby girl (9months old) down for a nap before your show and sh would wake up right after. My point is you feel like a part of the family at my house I even called my husband at work just to tell him hallmark took your show off the air he couldn't believe it either he said what in the world would they do that for. He loved your recipes so I go online now to find your videos but man it just ant the same. Do you want to come back man I hope so. If so can't you tell them you want your show back heck tell them to split the time with home and family they don't need 2 hours

If so can't you tell them you want your show back heck tell them to split the time with home and family they don't need 2 hours they should be able to fit all there stuff into 30minutes. If jay lino can split time with someone surly they would let a show people like do it. Sorry if this message a fended anyone but it a fended me that they took your show off. Miss watching you cook with your son you guys seem like a very close family. Please come back. I also can't figure out why there were only 24trying comments on here I know 24 people off the top of my head that are upset about this. Anyway enjoy your trip with your wonderful mom.

  • Call 1-818-755-2400 Tell Hallmark we want all new episodes of Mad Hunggry. DO IT NOW

    Talia

  • Mad Hungry is a part of my day. I love Lucinda and all the people she cooks with. Mad Hungry must return . The new shows are just awful. Everyone must emal Hallmark Channel and tell them.

    Freddie

  • Mad Hungry is a part of so many people's day. We can't let the network dictate to us. Is Hallmark Channel a dictator ship. We've grown to love Mad Hungry. We won't stand for this. Contact Hallmark Channel continually. We can get that show back. Hallmark had no clue how much the show means to all of us,

    Maggie

  • The two new shows are once again average time fillers. There is no reason for Home and Family to be repeated for 2 hours. Mad Hungry would be a perfect fit with these shows. Tell Hallmark Channel the same thing. I have and so have my friends.

    Lucille

  • There is no excuse that Mad Hungry is not on. Come on everyone email the Hallmark Channel and ask for NEW EPISODES of Mad Hungry. They really have destroyed the Hallmark Channel. We can get this done people. I don't have FACEBOOK. Tell people who do to do the same.

    Lana

  • I agree. We must comment on here every day and send Hallmark Channel a comment EVERY DAY to tell them we want Mad Hungry back with all new episodes. Don't stop people. Keep it going.

    Bobbi

  • I really miss your show already! I`m not watching Hallmark`s new shows. I figure if they have bad ratings maybe they will reconsider and bring Mad Hungry back.

  • So, so unhappy that Mad Hungry is gone. I am a bus driver and come home every morning between routes to watch Lucinda. I have learned and tried many of her recipes. I tried to watch the new shows they are airing now on Hallmark, don't care for them. Hoping Mad Hungry comes back soon.

  • I will no longer watch Hallmark. All the idiots who
    changed the shows and took of Lucinda deserved to be fired. The new shows are for IDIOTS. I hope they FIRE all the directors. When you have something that works why ruin it. GOOD BY HALLMARK
    You don't deserve to have any followers.

  • I called the 818-755-2400 Hallmark Channel number and even spoke to a REAL person!! People make this call, please. Dear me, 'Marie' you've got to be kidding -- Home & Family??? that's what HGTV is for. Folks the real people, commerical buyers, are the ones who will give us back the shows WE want to see. I put up with Lucy, Walton's and goodness even Frazier and this is what I get in return. NO WAY, I'm 'OFF THEIR AIR' until at least Martha's shows and Mad Hungry are back.

  • The BEST cooking shows on TV, so now what we do!MISS YOU, MISS YOU! PLEASE COME BACK

  • I love your show & will miss it. Why can't you go to one of the food channels?I did hate the music on your show. That's the one thing I could NOT stand. You are a gift ---I'm barely making ends meet so I can't make any purchases, but i love your recipes & have made many of them. All the best & I know you'll find a new home.

  • 2 hrs is TOO much and then they REPEAT it. much as i like paige and marie the channel could definitely manage their time better.
    martha and lucinda shows need to be onn the daytime sched with NEW shows.

  • I can't imagine my day without YOU! You help me plan my meals. Even tho I have Celiac Disease I can always find something you make to suit my needs or modify a bit. I totally LOVE your style of cooking...it has become mine!!! I will miss you so much and hope you're back on the air in no time. I can't wait for your new book! Love, love, love Mad Hungry Cooking for Men & Boys! Please come back on the air...the new Home & Family show is stupid!!!

  • Lucinda,
    We both love your show..and you family!!! Enjoy your respite and know we'll miss your daily programs. We'll stay tuned to your return, hopefully in the not to distant future!
    Hennie & Don

  • Lucinda and her young men are real people cooking such a great variety of food that I was always getting inspiration. Her values toward family, cooking and sharing are values many families in America have but seem not to be in vogue on TV executives. Bring back Lucinda and her REAL presentations of cooking for the family. I'm not watching the new shows. Lucinda, I really enjoyed your show. Hope you are enjoying your family and cultivate your creative talents the next time we see you. Thank you for your time and talents!

  • Came home from my workout class at the Y today and as usual sit down to watch Mad Hungry, as I am sure you can, imagine my disappointment. I thought maybe they just changed times. The last thing I wanted to watch was people exercising and then while checking different times finding this couple being, for a lack of a better word silly. Really disappointing. I am going to write to Hallmark.

    Thank you for all of the wonderful tips that you shared. You made cooking look simple. I am not a cook. In fact when my husband and I first got married I made my husband a shake and bak pork chops with shake and bake peaches, awfullllll. Then made a cake where you were to separate the eggs, which I did, one to the left and one to the right. The recipe never told me when to do anything with them and they went back in the Refig. once again desert was awful.

    Thank you again, Really loved watching you

  • I e-mailed the Hallmark Channel yesterday and called them today. I won't look at anything on the Hallmark Channel unless they bring back Mad Hungry.

    Personally, I could overdose on Marie after seeing less than one minute of her appearance on the Today show. Sad but true.

  • Say it isn't true!!!!!Love your show and will miss it terribly. What about a collection of all of your shows on DVD. That would be wonderful. I would buy them all. I hope they or someone realizes what a treasure you are and puts you back on the air! In the interim, maybe episodes on DVD.....

  • OMG! This is not right. Mad Hungry is one of the best cooking shows on tv -- blows away almost everything on food network by the way. Hallmark is incredibly foolish if they dont bring you back with bells and whistles. what so we can watch more reruns of Golden Girls? Come on people.

  • It is so sad that the Hallmark channel has made this decision. I have enjoyed May Hungry and the Martha Stewart Show so very much and miss them. I will not be watching any of the new shows on Hallmark.

  • My husband & I are avid fans and followers of your show. We have made many meals from your delicious recipes for our family & grandchildren.
    Thanks for sharing your recipes and your family with your fans.
    Good luck in all your endeavors!Keep us posted on any changes.

  • Lucinda, I hope this comment finds you & your mom well & thoroughly enJOYing precious time together abroad! You deserve this time ... especially after reading the disappointing news. Your show is wonderfully enriched with real, flavorful, delicious meals, clever; yet, efficient tips, excellent explanation & family focus. Surely, your show will be well-appreciated by another network. I look forward to hearing good news from you here in the near future and am glad your plate is full with other opportunities. Best of God's blessings to you & your family! In the meantime, LOVE my Spurtle & tapered rolling pin ... thanks for sharing your favorite items on OpenSky!

  • Lucinda, I love MH! You have a great show & have beautifully taught us so many incredible recipes. I love your first cookbook & look forward to the second, but I do hope your show returns somewhere soon!

    Enjoy your vacation with Rose!

  • Lucinda, I really hate to learn Hallmark has removed your cooking show. I absolutely loved watching your show. It is the best. Having your family interact is so great. I sure hope Hallmark will get many replys telling them its not a good thing to remove shows that are as great as yours. The recipes are super, and I truly loved the way you address each show. I will continue to check out facebook, and knowing you will have a new cookbook coming out in March will be a welcome site.

  • Very disappointed yesterday morning when I noticed your show was not airing. Lucinda, you have such a great way of showing easy ways to cook meals. You are so down to earth and easy to related to (loved all the family stories you shared). I tried several of your recipes and they're all delicious. Best wishes in all your endeavors and I hope to see you back on the air soon!

  • Turned you on yesterday only to find that awful Home show. I left it on for about 20 minutes, just to see if I might like it and I definitely DIDN'T. I didn't realize you were not going to be on at all, but thought this show might just be a temporary thing. Thenl I got this in my email. I really love your show and will definitely add my voice to those protesting at Hallmark. I love your show, recipes and your logic and sense of humor. Hope you keep at it and please let all of us know if you sign with another channel. I have so many channels that it would take me a long time to "find" you so I hope you let us know via email so we don't miss an episode.

  • I stumbled on Mad Hungry about a year ago and became a huge fan. Because of LSQ, I got into other Hallmark offerings as well. I turned many friends on to LSQ. She is relatable, her dishes aren't difficult to prepare and delicious. I love her family & friends involvement. I watched all the reruns, eagerly awaiting the new season.
    For what? Some cookie cutter imitation of a network show like "The Revolution"...which was CANCELED?!
    Bring back Lucinda et al. Don't lose quality by trying to save $ with an imitation show that is better served on network.

  • I'm very disappointed that they took off Martha and your show. I walk my treadmill and while watching, I DVR the shows, and they are great and I learn all kind of new things, hints, on different foods. I will miss your show.

  • The Crown Media Family Network/Hallmark/Hallmark Movie Channel receptionist that answered 818-755-2400 told me he would connect me to another line in order for me to leave my comment/opinion/suggestion regarding the Mad Hungry/Martha Stewart Show hiatus. A live person did not answer when the receptionist made the connection; but, thankfully, it was someone's personal voicemail (couldn't hear the name clearly) ... I left my comments on the voicemail. I plan to leave a message on the Hallmark Channel website as well.

  • That is not happy news! Love your show, your recipes and your family! I will send a nastygram to those dirtbags at Hallmark for doing that to you...have great travels with your mom and hope to see you back on the air soon. Keep us posted!

  • I am so disappointed, Lucinda. Mad Hungry is my favorite cooking show. Great food. Easy recipes. AND a real family helping out. My boys love to watch your boys help in the kitchen. They help me all the time with dinner and it's great to see other boys doing the same. "Let's try that," they say! My 12-year old just made the "winner chicken dinner" all by himself, in fact, thanks to watching and learning from you and your boys. Thank you and tell your boys how much they inspire other kids, too.

  • I WILL call the Hallmark channel as I can't imagine my mornings without MSL OR MAD HUNGRY!!! I am soooo bummed out right now!!!

  • I also thin Hallmark is crazy to remove your show.
    I am 73 years old cooking since I can remember, but still enjoyed & learned from your shows.
    I must add you kept it simple for the novice as well for the seasoned cooks.
    Good luck in all you do, I will try to keep following.

  • Lucinda, I could not believe that your show was
    cancelled!! Hallmark was about the only channel
    that I could rely on, but after watching the
    Family and Home show, for a few minutes, I am
    not watching the Hallmark channel anymore, until
    they bring back your show! When something is good,
    why do they replace it with stupid shows!!!!
    Will miss you and keep waiting for you to
    return. Hallmark channel, wake up!

  • I am with Joan, at the age of 72 I am learning more new things and loving it. Your show is one of my absolute favorite. Will boycott Hallmark with all the others.
    Will make the phone call as soon as I finish this post.
    Will follow you on facebook.

  • I am so, so, so sorry your show has been discontinued. We always looked forward to your show every day. My husband came home for lunch and we watched it together. He loves to cook so he cooked alot of your recipes which we enjoyed and shared them with family and friends. We hope so much you will be back. We wish you and your family the best.

  • I have been looking & looking trying to find The Martha Stewart Show & the Mad Hungry show with Lucinda Scala Quinn. With no luck. I can't believe they just suddenly disappeared without any warning.
    It's so disgusting! I watched them every morning & miss them sooo. I agree with everyone else, that "Home" show is a waste of time. A few minutes of that was enough for me. I will not ever watch it again. And WHY did they give it 2 hours??? Trying to fill up the empty time slot I guess!?!
    Everyone says I'm a good cook, but I have learned a lot from Martha & Lucinda. And I love them both. Especially love Martha Stewart.....she's quite the gal. So talented in so many ways. Hope both of them are back on the air soon.

  • Well Oprah did it so I am guessing that Martha will be doing it!! She is buying her own station and will air Mad Hungry (MY FAVE!) and all things Martha on her own station!!!
    *crossing fingers and hoping I am correct!*
    Already MISS YOU!!! Please come back!! I like Marie but not really a fan of her talk show!! She giggles way too much! and I can only assume she is giggling to cover up not having a reply to whatever the guest has said...

  • I cannot believe this! I am a retired teacher ,77 years old, and I looked forward to Mad Hungry every day! Hallmark made a huge, huge, mistake! I have made a promise to myself. NO MORE HALLMARK ANYTHING, INCLUDING CARDS UNTIL THEY MAKE THIS RIGHT!

  • http://www.hallmarkchannel.com/Others/userapply/default.aspx

    Just click and tell them to BRING BACK MAD HUNGRY WITH ALL NEW EPISODES.

  • Miss Madd Hungry esp. There are fewer and fewer shows on that I enjoy.
    The bonus is the electric bill is lower with the TV off. There is nothing on the Hallmark channel of interest to me.

  • I’ve said that least 1857120 times. SKC was here...

  • Don't know how long your trip will be...hope you've had/are having fun!

    I sure do miss Mad Hungry as well as Martha Stewart and Emeril. :/ You all really got my own creative juices flowing! I'd try new recipes, crafts, and even purchased my first cast iron skillet and roaster pan due to you! I even invested in an enameled dutch oven that I'm now experimenting with. ;)

    Hallmark really missed the mark putting on Home & Family. It's so very uninteresting and many times unprofessional. I wanted to like Marie, but do feel the same about that program as well. Week days just aren't the same without you all. Hopefully they will soon see the light and bring back the good programs so many of us love.

  • I wondered onto this site trying to voice my opinion of the Hallmark Channel making the monumental mistake of taking the Martha Stewart Show, and Mad Hungry off the air and replacing it with that substandard show "Home and Family." Even "marie" is a disappointment. I hope they found the audience they were looking for, because I will be finding a new vice to take the place of Martha and Lucinda. "Home and Family" and "Marie" just don't cut it!

  • I have written Hallmark about the Lucinda Scala Quinn show, Mad Hungry. No answer!!!!! Bring that show back! It taught me so much and was so well done. Get rid of all these talk shows. It doesn't take much talent to put a talk show on. Where is the creativity in that?
    Oh,
    I miss Mad Hungry so very much!

  • enjoy your show very much. very down to earth, and able to understand you very well. very family orianted.

  • Just watch my last rerun, my family calls me Lucinda because that's all I cook. A major disappointment to me. I taped all of your shows on my DVR, but when the dvr stopped working and direct tv replaced it with a new one. I am completely lost cause I lost all of my Mad Hungry taping
