Did you miss the party? This week, "The Martha Stewart Show," which airs on Hallmark Channel, celebrated its 1,000th episode. Seth Myers from "Saturday Night Live" showed up to help put the finishing touches on the "cake": a giant tower made from 1,000 Billy's Bakery cupcakes. (In retrospect, we wish we'd asked Martha to bring treats last November to the Ad Age ME*: Media Evolved conference, where she accepted her Media Vanguard Lifetime Achievement Award trophy and gave a very charming speech.)
On the 1,000th episode, which first aired Wednesday, Martha showed a "blooper reel" of highlights from six years of the show. The folks at "The Martha Stewart Show" said we could share the reel if we reminded everybody when you can tune in: weekdays at 10 a.m. ET/9 a.m. CT, with a same-day encore at 2 p.m. ET, and a next-day airing at 1 p.m. ET. (Got that?)
Martha being Martha, there's nothing too gruesome in the reel -- and of course it all makes for great TV. Click and watch Martha crack wise about her time in prison, fail spectacularly at extracting the candy from a sparkly pinata she's bashing and -- our favorite moment -- enjoy the tension as she stops mid-sentence while filming a promo that she thinks is awkwardly worded to say, to her people off-camera, "Whoever wrote these is not good. [pause] Who wrote them? [pause] Off with your head." Then she laughs.
See, she was kidding! RELAX, everybody!
