Network renews show for 26 more episodes
HOLLYWOOD — It’s fun to make fun of old Martha Stewart shows.Fine Living Network has ordered 26 more episodes of “Whatever, Martha!,” the half-hour skein that features hosts Alexis Stewart (Martha’s daughter) and Jennifer Koppelman Hutt commenting, harshly at times, on vintage episodes of Stewart’s syndie how-to show, “Martha Stewart Living,” from the early 1990s. “Whatever, Martha!” hails from Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia. The renewal was announced Tuesday during a taping of Martha Stewart’s current daytime strip, “Martha.” Alexis Stewart and Hutt were guests on that show along with Rosie O’Donnell, who said she was a fan of “Whatever, Martha!” and would be a guest commentator on an upcoming seg. “Whatever, Martha!” bowed last year on the Scripps Networks-owned Fine Living cabler.
