The Hallmark Channel and WE tv have acquired the cable rights to "The Golden Girls" starting in March 2009 in a shared cable deal. This means the sitcom will leave its home at Lifetime Television of 12 years at the end of February 2009. The show has been on Lifetime since March 1, 1997 and was one of the highest rated series in the history of the network.
"The Golden Girls" was the only reason I watched Lifetime. When they leave, so will I. I think it was a very bad decision for Lifetime to let the show go.
