so tired of love it or list and house hunters!! its just the same shows everyday all day!Theres no variety anymore no design shows. Not everyone is intrested in buying a home...some people are staying in thier homes and want ideas on how to improve and create new looks. color splash and devine design were awesome shows!Love property brothers bc they are so sexy and they know their stuff!PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE BRING BACK A VARIETY OF DESIGN SHOWS AND AFFORDABLE WAYS TO DO IT!!!! or change HGTV name to "how to buy a home" bc thats all you show!
I completely agree. I used to either DVR or make time to enjoy the interesting variety of design and real estate shows. But now that the majority of shows are real estate, I rarely watch anymore and I miss it! Also miss the Design Stars competition. Hope the HGTV programmers read this board and will bring back the wonderful shows with great design ideas.
I just 'registered' online on this site simply to reconfirm what has been written above. I rarely watch anymore because the design/before-and-after shows/the creative stuff is so minimal. So disappointing. I am so over 'binge watching' bratty couples whine about real estate choices, etc. Bring back the creative people please!!!!
Me too. Dear HGTV, I miss you. I don't want to buy a new house and don't care about anyone else's search for one. Love it or List it is only half a design show, and one of the spouse's is forever working against the designer and often exhibits such belligerent rudeness that I won't let my kids watch. Please bring back design shows! I was such a fan of Designing for the Sexes, Divine Design, Designer's Challenge... I like things that show how to use space, color, shape, and light. You used to specialize in these things and it made the world a more beautiful, interesting place. Please offer an alternative to watching the endless suffering of real estate agents.
I agree, bring back the old shows and a variety, the hours on end of the same show, no variety. I use to be such a big fan and watched all the time. I have an entire house based on some of the shows I watched. No longer, I change the station as soon as I see the same old same old. My guess new program director..I also use to get the magazine also. No longer. PLEASE listen to the viewers!
I agree with all the others. I would like to see design shows like before with Sarah Richardson, Candice Olsen, Vern Yip, etc. It seems all we are watching now is building shows and House Hunters. I used to watch all the time and now I think twice. Please bring the good shows back

I completely agree! I have been a faithful fan for years and years, but I am tired of watching House Hunters, etc. Bring back Sarah Richardson, Genevieve Gorder and Candace Olsen! If not I'm afraid HGTV will lose this viewer...
YES YES YES, where are the design shows. it's the reason I fell in love with HGTV. I know there's lots of info on the website, but I REALLY miss they shows that inspired me to try new things in my house. The Crasher shows don't really do this for me. I miss Design on an Dime, Decorating Cents and similar type shows. Even a crafting show would be better than the constant barrage of real estate centered shows. I don't care who is buying a home in Nicaragua or Rome!

I agree with everyone else on here - HGTV is not the same any more. I would watch it all the time and now I seldom turn it on -I don't mind see Love It or List and House Hunters on occasion - but this is getting ridiculous seeing them over and over. We need the old style design shows - how to revamp our own home. And cancelling Design Star tops it off! It was great first two seasons then went down hill - It's like producers at HGTV do not care about their viewers any more... so sad
I have been saying this for months, and was not surprised to see the comments above. I really don't understand, and wish someone from HGTV would address these questions and comments here. It's very disappointing. I stood right along side them a few years ago and wrote my cable provider in support of bringing them back after the cable company dropped them due to a contract dispute. Now if that happened again I could care less. They did such an amazing job of providing accessible, interesting ideas and shows. What happened to all of the new design star winners that were supposed to end up with their own shows? We don't even see them anymore. Please HGTV - bring back the content we want to see!!!
I am glad to see that I am not the only one disappointed with HGTV. I saw a reply on a blog that real estate shows are very popular and profitable. Was HGTV not making enough money with design shows? What happened to all those stars? Antonio, Sarah, David, Candice, where are you?!?
