HGTV

Ok I had to rush home early because I had my husbands keys…and now I am watching HGTV. Well can I say that if they are hiring, I will take on a position in programming! Where are the damn shows man…GOODNESS. How much of House Hunters can we watch? HGTV should be off the meat rack with design shows all day long, and GOOD ONES. The food network did not always have the great programming it has now, but HGTV should know better. Is it just me, or do yall feel me?

HGTV IF YOUR READING…COME ON! I KNOW YOU CAN DO IT!

I could think of all kinds of shows! With all the blogs related to decor the information in right in front of them if they just look.

DONE RANTING!

I couldn't agree more - I hardly watch it anymore. Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting! Love a fellow L.A.M.B. fan!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! The photo on my header is my original work. I love shoe pics!

You're right about HGTV. I get so annoyed that Sarah's House only comes on once a week. I did, however, watch about 22 episodes of House Hunters International last week while I was sewing some curtains.

your reading my mind! lol - I'm so sick of House Hunters & Holmes on Homes - plus the shows are all OLD like 2005...come on HGTV!

Michelle (Three Men and a Lady) said...

Yes, what the heck is it with House Hunters and House Hunters International re-runs? I used to be addicted to HGTV, now I can only watch it TIVO'd and on fast forward. When you get hired, put in a good word for me for a job too.

So used to be addicted to HGTV & Trading Spaces but now it's so not interesting.

From your mouth to HGTV's ears, my Saturdays haven't been the same since they messed up the schedule. Where are the new decorators they promised and all the old decorating shows that made them such a hit to begin with!

Danielle said...

I was just saying this to someone the other day. I used to love HGTV but now its just garbage.

Kelley at My Island Wedding said...

I agree! Sometimes they go a bit too far...

Where have all the tips on OUR Homes and Gardens gone???

*Drags large soapbox to the podium...getting ready to jump on the bandwagon*...

What I want to know is, do they even LISTEN to their viewers?

HGTV's message boards are full of complaints that people are sick of the real estate shows!

Whatever happened to:
That's Clever
Design on a Dime
Freestyle
Design to Sell (BRING BACK LISA LAPORTA!)
Joan Steffand left, but her show with the design on a budget ($500 budget)
Myles of Style
Kenneth Brown Design

I'll be here all day, but you get the idea. What gives?

Thank god I recorded most of the shows back in the day, cause right now HGTV stinks.

I have another complaint about "Who's Wedding Is It Anyway" on Style network. I want to see the planners design a wedding, NOT DRAMA! If I want that, I'll watch "Bridezillas"...

Thank god for David Tutera!

*Jumps off soapbox*

boops said...

i second that! i used to watch it all the time, now i hardly watch it at all.

I agree with you!!!! I've gotten so tired of HGTV house hunters that I am taking a break and watching food shows on PBS and DIYnetwork station. Everytime I see House Hunters I just roll my eyes in disgust.

Well I think it depends on where you are in life. I LOVE House Hunters and Property Virgins. (and more recently Holmes on Homes) because my hubby and I are looking to buy our first home this year. These shows help us tremendously! I've learned so much from HH and PV.

I like the design shows too, but not so much because I don't have a home to incorporate most of the ideas. I really liked Designed to Sell and the other one where they would just design a room in the house (can't remember the name). :-)

ToyaB said...

I agree 100%, I can't recall the last time I watched a show other than design stars. Hopefully they get the hint a bring on better programs.

Boops left a message on my blog leading me here...just to address what you ladies are saying: I am with you all 100%, which is why it's so exciting to be the person who develops new shows for HG. I'm a total design fanatic. We've been working on new ways to make design shows. We wanted to give you more beef than just the before and after, a reason to NOT fast forward to the reveal. That being said, we have a bunch of awesome new shows premiering the week of 3/14. i'm actually going to HQ to celebrate the new shows and new talent tomorrow. ALSO: we've been traveling around the nation to meet the BEST designers, because if we are bringing design back, we want to bring it back in a BIG way. We've already found some AMAZING people. check my blog, i'll try to keep y'all posted. dont give up on us yet. xoxo

Totally agree. Who in the world are they marketing to? Not us.

Mrs. Sabreiah said...

FINALLLLLY someone agrees w. me!! THANK YOU!! I hvn't flipped on the tube for ages b.c that's basically the only channel I watch.. but since last year.. they've just shown ppl house hunting. I'm never awake in the mornings anymore to catch all the design shows.. so YOU, ME && EVERYONE else who comes home to relax && watch something interesting;; has to watch another couple buy their dream home.

@moni.. that's where the shows went.. to the morning time only

pffft. shuts off tube;; back to crafting it is then.

Kindle Marie said...

Girl, i so wish i had Tivo from way back when i log in to HGTV all the time just trying to find a show to watch online...I feel ya, feel ya, feel ya! What up HGTV??

Erika @ BluLabel Bungalow said...

Wow, I guess I'm not the only one. These days I'd rather read design blogs!

Decor I Adore said...

I completely agree with you! I hardly watch them anymore... I now get all of my design inspiracion from the blogs I follow.

SOUL PRETTY said...

I feel you pain girl...I don't watch it anymore...I don't want to watch people shop for home or even make-over their homes...I want to see how people actually live...My favorite show was Dream Drives and This Small Space...Ugh!

Tamstyles said...

Design Inc. and Sarahs House are my favorite shows...I love Color Splash, and thats really all I can think of. I cant wait for the new Designer winners show. But thats that..COME ON HGTV!

Brooke said...

does lauren lake still come on? the catch is we MUST all get together and stop watching the channel! then they will read all the emails and letters telling the why we left!
They have a staff that does that. I am with Moni on everything she said.......
