News Roundup: 'Sister Wives' Star Marries Fourth Wife, Weak Ratings for Martha Stewart on Hallmark Channel and More
Though the ceremony won't be aired on their TLC reality show, the reception will be featured in the 'Sister Wives' season finale. The first season of 'Sister Wives' has followed Brown as he courted Sullivan, who was to be the fourth wife in his already supersized family.
Sullivan joins Brown's first three wives, Meri, Janelle and Christine. With her three children from a previous marriage, the Brown family now has 16 kids, four wives and one patriarch.

A TV series and movie could potentially happen, but for now it's being launched digitally on MTV's newly launched Geek website. 'The Seekers' will feature "a very high-concept plot, it's a story such as you never have seen before, and it spans the centuries." [The Hollywood Reporter]

• The Hallmark Channel has dramatically shortened its new Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia lifestyle programming block due to underwhelming ratings. The original shows are down 68 percent from the ratings the network was bringing in just a year ago with classic TV repeats. CEO Bill Abbott remains committed to the block, but is rethinking the strategy the channel used to launch it. [The Hollywood Reporter]
The Emmy award-winning 'Everybody Loves Raymond' star is slated to reprise her titular role as Mrs. Miracle in 'Debbie Macomber's They Call Me Mrs. Miracle' this fall on the Hallmark Channel, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
In this sequel to last December's 'Debbie Macomber's Mrs. Miracle' (and once again based on the best-selling author's book, which will hit stores in September), Roberts again will play Emily Merkle, a.k.a. Mrs. Miracle -- the mysterious and saintly woman who swoops into troubled lives in order to work her restorative Christmas magic.
Livingston has appeared in other TV shows including Mad Men, Eli Stone and Crossing Jordan. The 54-year-old former child star will play an aeronautical engineer on a plane who helps Dean Cain's character foil an attempted hijack.
As my newborn son (part of a twin set; the other is a girl) rests in my arms, I just want to take this moment to thank two cable channels for being there for us as we struggled through the sleepless first night home: Nick@Nite and The Hallmark Channel.
Yes, I said the Hallmark Channel!
The Hallmark Channel was on during the 11 P.M. till 1 A.M. shift with four episodes of M.A.S.H . When I was younger I never liked the early episodes with Frank Burns, Colonel Blake, and Trapper John. Now I like those more, as well as the first two seasons where Colonel Potter and B.J. Hunnicutt joined the cast (these are the episodes The Hallmark Channel is showing now). Once Frank Burns left and Charles Winchester joined the 4077th the show got a bit too preachy for me, and Col. Potter began to spout too many southern cliches.
