Why does everything need to be dramatic? Sign In/Join 
posted
It has gotten nerve wracking to watch HGTV. All the shows have manufactured drama. Love It or List It is basically just a chance for people to bicker. The same things could be done without the scripted bickering and it would be so much more enjoyable. The same thing is true for Brother vs Brother, HGTV Star, and all the competition shows. Design is interesting without drama, HGTV needs to trust itself as a design channel. I want to learn from the shows, not be irritated by them.

I'm with you. I just watched The Endless Yard Sale - so disappointing. I enjoyed the show from years ago when the show was actually about the people and what they had for sale. Now it has become a competition/award (money) show. Contests are BORING. Save them for daytime television.

It's television! I watch it anyway. They have to make it a good story. I just take the drama in stride! I love HGTV....take the good with the bad sometimes! Wave
