Hall­mark Chan­nel is lov­ing ‘Lucy’ again

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - On Tv -

Q: Why did Hall­mark Chan­nel sud­denly take off “I Love Lucy” with­out any no­tice? – Jim Walters, Rutherford, N.J.

A: The show’s, and the chan­nel’s, fan base cer­tainly no­ticed that change – and the not-toohappy re­ac­tion had to have been an­tic­i­pated by Hall­mark, which then re­sponded by re­turn­ing the clas­sic sit­com to the week­day sched­ule with a block of four re­peats each morn­ing. How­ever, be aware that it will “dis­ap­pear” for a while again soon, since the annual Hall­mark fes­ti­val of Christ­mas movies that runs al­most 24/7 is com­ing and will con­tinue through the end of the year. How­ever, the “Lucy” faith­ful who re­ceive the nos­tal­gia chan­nel Decades also can find the show there, with back-to-back re­peats ev­ery week­day morn­ing (fol­lowed by the same treat­ment given to Lu­cille Ball’s sub­se­quent “Lucy Show”). Hall­mark ev­i­dently did lis­ten to the very vo­cal devo­tees of “I Love Lucy,” and since it’s back there at least for now, they can rest easy and put the Vi­ta­meataveg­amin back on the shelf.

Q: Was the per­son who played Jen­nie Garth’s daugh­ter on “BH90210” her real daugh­ter? – Christie Shaw, via e-mail

A: No, though the el­dest of her three daugh­ters – Luca Bella, whose fa­ther is ac­tor Peter Facinelli – is an ac­tress. On the Fox show, Garth’s fic­tional daugh­ter Kyler was played by Karis Cameron, a Cana­dian per­former who also had a lead­ing role re­cently in the Life­time movie “Iden­tity Theft of a Cheerleade­r.” Ad­di­tion­ally, she ap­peared on “Un­REAL” and was a star of the drama se­ries “Open Heart,” made in her na­tive coun­try (where “BH90210” also ended up be­ing made).
