Lifetime TV - Movies on a family network

I am writing to you today regarding the gay Christmas movies on lifetime. I'm not racist and I don't have a problem how people choose to live their life, but when you put shows like that on TV I'm having to explain to my kids that I have raised to believe that a man and a woman are the right relationship not a man & man or woman & a woman. You are advertising and promoting this on a family channel and with Christmas shows. I will not be watching this network anymore because I believe in values that I thought this network had.

Desired outcome: Explanation

I agree with the above. Promoting alternative lifestyles like this is not something that should be exhibited for family viewing. Children have so many concerns already without more confusion about the family raising experience they are going through now with their own parenting.
I will not be watching Lifetime shows that depict this. What's the next thing Lifetime, is it going to be a story with polygamy ?

Lifetime TV - Women's lingerie commercial

On December 2 as well as November 30, my husband and I were enjoying a Christmas movie on the Lifetime channel. It was prime time, from 8:00 to 10:00 pm. It was a CHRISTMAS movie! Kids watch Christmas movies. Kids are up and awake at 8:00 pm. In the midst of commercials for toilet paper featuring cartoon bears and household cleaning products pops up thi...

Lifetime TV - Advertising/content

For many years i've been taking care of a woman who suffers from epilepsy. She has sexual abuse in her background as well as growing up in a narcissistic environment. Very sweet innocent kind-hearted person. We are learning now that the epileptic seizures are a product of the violence and the neglect she experienced growing up. She can't be exposed to...

Lifetime TV - Noise that you call music

Please stop putting your annoying noise on your lifetime movies! It serves no purpose, but is very annoying! I cannot hear what the actors say! You play the noise over the movie! I am about to stop watching all your movies as you have started putting the noise on most! Very annoying! Are you secretly brainwashing us with the annoying noise? What other purpose could it serve?! I don't need music to tell me how I should feel about certain scenes in the movie! But you don't just play at certain scenes, you play the noise all through the movie and my husband is so disgusted with this noise that he has quit watching lifetime movies with me! Is that your objective? Fewer viewer?!

Desired outcome: Stop the music/noise! Thank

Lifetime TV - Carly Hughes

What does she show her tongue so much as some sort of tool when she acts; it's very distracting and after sometime it's very annoying.
I watched the Christmas Edition and a lot of her scenes she was in, there was her tongue. Maybe she has no idea she shows it so much just a bad habit?
Maybe the director didn't notice it. Who knows it seemed to show up when her character was flirting. Sorry Carly but a little is OK but a lot of it wasn't very attractive.
Thank you for reading about my disappointment.

Lifetime TV - Your lack of diversity in race on your shows

I wrote out a long comment. I am concerned about your lack of diversity in the people on your programs. There are people of all colors in this country and one of those groups are AFRICAN ANERICANS. I wrote a very long comment so I will not repeat it BUT I will say again the absence of many people of color on your shows is disturbing. We are everywhere in this country BUT I can turn on TV and see shows where are not even present on the streets and as people walk. WE ARE HERE AND HAVE MADE MANY GREAT CONTRIBUTIONS TO THIS COUNTRY. ACT LIKE IT BY SHOWING THAT WE ARE HERE EVERYWHERE.

Desired outcome: I WANT TO SEE CHANGE. WE ARE HERE AND WE AND OTHER PEOPLE OF COLOR ARE IMPORTANT

Lifetime TV - Shows

Please stop showing Castle every morning all day. Lifetime is supposed to be about movies not Castle. It's boring and we want to see shows and movies. We shouldn't have to stream all day to see them. During the day m home and want to see Lifetime movies please. We see enough cop shows on other stations. Lifetime was never this boring. Love the Greys Anatomy series . Play thing like that, please . Thank you. Your Lifetime #1 fan!

Lifetime TV - Inordinate commercials during a movie

I just finished trying to watch your broadcast of the movie "enough". It was very difficult to connect with the storyline because you inserted (in the worst possible places) repeated commercials every 4 to 6 minutes. It seems that you could not afford to air the movie so you hacked it up with every commercial you could find. If you cannot afford to air a movie without all the disruptions, give the movie some respect (and viewers) and don't air it!

Desired outcome: Reduce the number of commercial breaks

We watch LMN everyday. We are so tired of your Medicare and $9.95 plan. They are so annoying. My guess is you can not get anyone else to fill those spots. The actors try to stuff Medicare and the $9.95 plan down your throat. Give us a break and get some other commercials on there. PLEASE

Lifetime TV - scheduling

i wanted to watch the complete series of MAJOR CRIMES. you started airing the full season on wednesday otober 13th with episodes 1 and 2, then nothing on thursday, friday, saturday or sunday.

then, on monday october 18th you air episode 6, 7 and 8. how inept can your scheduler be? this is beyond ridiculous. it just shouldn't happen.

i'm using TIVO, and the schedule is fairly accurate.

i would really appreciate a detailed answer and how you are going to correct this.

Lifetime TV - It's Columbus Day

To say I am annoyed with seeing an ad celebrating "Indigenous Peoples' Day" on today's programming is a gross understatement.

TODAY IS COLUMBUS DAY. And while you attempt to minimize the discovery of America and join the ridiculousness that is political correctness on steroids — let's be real.

If it hadn't been for the discovery of America and all of the advancements that have taken place since, your television channel and the ability to provide a service WOULD NOT EXIST.

I don't agree with how native Americans were treated but to use this day to try to make your political statement with a twenty second "celebration" is both ignorant and offensive.

Lifetime TV - Commercials

I love the programming but the 15 minute commercials between 5 minutes of the show is drinking me crazy! I want to throw something at the TV! If I see one more Christmas in October commercial I don't know what I will do! In the Summer they had a commercial Christmas in the Summer and they ran it just like they do this one..I didn't mind it the first twenty times I saw it but oh my gosh enough is enough! I now mute the commercials! YOU MADE YOUR POINT!

Desired outcome: Limit the same commercials over and over

Lifetime TV - Phexx commercials.

I have been watching LMN for the last week, and I am offended by the Phexxi commercials you are running on your network. These Phexxi commercials use the word vagina twice in a 30 second commercial. I can't watch one of your movies without seeing this commercial at least twice; usually three times. Your movies are not rated R, so you shouldn't be allowing commercials that use inappropriate words like this. A child might hear and be exposed to things they don't need to learn about until they are older. I will stop watching your channel if you don't stop showing commercials like this

Desired outcome: Stop showing these commercials

Agree. It's completely distasteful and inappropriate, even if we are watching R rated shows or movies. We can fast forward the regular programs, but we can't do so with ads. Until we can, they need to be regulated better across all platforms.

Lifetime TV - Movie content

I use to love lifetime movies it was my favorite channel to watch. Now everything has changed from love stores and family movies to killings horror murders rapes. My entire family and friends just loved lifetime. Why has it changed to these horrible movies?the horror background music is soooo stressful and nerves are shot. So i just had to stop watching. Keep in mind your watchers are also muture people who are looking to have a relaxing evening to enjoy with nice calm movies. I can understand your horror movies once in awhile for people who like that, but not every single movie a horror story.

I am complaining about the movies here lately that your network has incorporated on lifetime or lmn. I have been watching this channel before you came out with the second network. the movies that made your real and devoted fans fall in love with your network was the movies that was showing on the network from the beginning. like movies as followed:1. a face to die for 2. a face to kill for 3. in a child's name 4. the tracy thurman story 5. as good as dead 6. our mother's murder 7. blood vows: the story of a mafia wife 8. goodnight sweet wife: a murder in boston 9. crowned and dangerous 10. lies of the heart: the story of laurie kellogg 11. for the love of nancy. I do not like the movies they have put on lifetime either, they are not for everyone. go back to retro and take the great movies out of the vault. people love those movies. that's why we fell in love with the network. will race home to see a great movies on lifetime.

I have been a longtime fan and since cable has been so expensive I don't have it. So I have subscriptions to things my kids watch all the time and things I like.

Lifetime TV - Too much vivica!

Y'all have basically ruined LMN, I normally keep my tv on LMN all the time but seems lately that y'all are giving LMN to vivica a fox! Like it seems most every other movie is all about her or has her in it, I mean maybe you should change it to vmn vivica movie network with all her the wrong this or the wrong that and I'm sure I'm not the only one who thinks she is 'the wrong' actress for this channel...how fair is it to all the other actors and actresses that she constantly steals their spotlight?! #toomuchvivica#thewrongactress

Desired outcome: Less vivica

I totally agree, LMN has gone to hell. It used to be my favorite. Now they play the same movies over and over, it's all the wrong this or that, and now keeping up with the Joneses is all that's on. They play the whole series all day long. A good channel has gone to hell.

Lifetime TV - Support of transgenders

Lifetime celebrates transgenders? Why would you celebrate the mentally ill? That is just sick. I have watched you for years because you were a channel that families could watch together, but, you are quickly becoming just another panderer of the 'woke' LGBTXYZ junk. We do NOT want to see that. That is not why people watch your channel. Just plainly SICK.

Lifetime TV Christmas movies are another example of the network's wrong doing. Christmas is a celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. Why are you showing movies depicting a sinful lifestyle, homosexuality, which is a sin against The Lord, whose birthday we are celebrating. I will encourage as many as possible to boycott your network and your sponsors.

Lifetime TV - Scheduled movies

What has happened to LMN? To constantly show movies that are in regards to killing, being gay, etc.
This has been my favorite channel for over 25 years, I frankly can't stand it anymore. What happened to the family aspect of this channel, romance, love, healthy living?
Now it is constant killing, raping, gay pride, etc.
My 15 year old daughter has even noticed and made multiple comments.
Very disappointing, disturbing and frankly pathetic and sad.
Whoever runs this now needs to be removed. Very disturbing…

Desired outcome: Movies that are family friendly as it was before and stop shoving the gay pride crap at us. I don’t ever comment my views and expect the same from others, definitely a family channel.

Lifetime TV - All movies

I have watched your movies on lifetime and lmn for over 20 years. I have yet to see a movie on your channels where either the writers or actors have been able to speak proper English.

Why don't you try to hire people who actually understand English.

You are actually watched by many, many people. You are encouraging them to keep speaking unintelligible English, just like your movies. You should be an example of how English is actually spoken.

Intolerable!

Lifetime TV - skipping episodes

I am in the middle of watching Grey's Anatomy on life time, and I'm getting extremely pissed that you keep skipping episodes. If your going to show the series then show EVERY EPISODE, INSTEAD OF SKIPPING ANY FOR GARBAGE.
WOULD GREATLY APPRECIATE IT. I WOULD APPRECIATE YOU STARTING AGAIN SINCE YOU SKIPPED A LOT IN EVERY SEASON. I am a fan of Greys .

Desired outcome: REPLAY FROM SEASON ONE EPISODE ONE WITHOUT SKIPPING ANY EPISODES
