TV Junkie: Rough Sailing for Martha at Hallmark; No 'Voice' Here or Wedding Either

We got a sneak peak (above) of the upcoming season of "Tosh.0" where Daniel Tosh takes a shot from champion boxer Manny Pacquiao. "Tosh.0" returns on May 17.
It was almost a year and a half ago that we predicted that Martha Stewart's move to Hallmark was going to be a tough one and it looks like a couple quarters of financials is unfortunately proving this to be true. While there is no such thing as an instant gold mine, we wonder how many more quarters of losses will start to limit her production options. We ask you, when was the last time you turned on the Hallmark Channel?
Live Performance FYI: Jen Kirkman of "Chelsea Lately" whom we interviewed last month, will he be hosting "The Jen Kirkman Talk Show" this Thursday night at 9:30pm at the UCB Theatre with guests Joe Wagner, Mary Lynn Rajskub (of "24" and so much more), and musical guest Brendan Hines.
A couple things we're not writing about: "The Voice" - I explained this a bit in this rant here but if I started writing about "The Voice," what next? A debate about which is 'better': "American Idol," "America's Got Talent," "The Voice," "X Factor," etc.? / The Royal Wedding - You wouldn't believe the pitches that I get everyday to mention coverage of the British royal wedding. You won't see that event listed here and you won't see Danish royal wedding coverage mentioned either. Somehow less than 6% of the American public is interested in the wedding, and this poll was taken before "The Voice" premiere aired.
Just another reminder that we have a Channel Zero on iTunes">new edition of the Channel Zero podcast up with our interview with comedienne Judy Tenuta, and a recap of our first visit to the Tribeca Film Festival.
