I am so glad to see that others agree about the boring real estate programming HGTV has turned to. I did see an Antonio show this week, which shocked me. There were some good shows from the Next HGTV Star winners. What happened? A gardening show(s) would be nice. Please return to entertaining, instructional shows you used to have. I keep checking the listings, but soon, I won't even be doing that if they don't change.
I too was a great fan. Now it's repeat after repeat. Some of the stars are rude. What happened to great shows that gave decorating ideas? Design on a Dime,Color Splash, Redesign, Antonio Treatment too name a few. So many reruns wouldn't be bad if they were those shows. Tired of whiney home buyers,and people who make promises to do things in homes and then can't, Then get annoyed at the home owner for being disappointed.
Like everyone else in these posts, I have watched HGTV for many years. And, I too, am very disappointed in the shows. I actually haven't watched HGTV over the past year! Every now and then, I look to see if any new, interesting shows are airing, but quickly realize that my efforts are wasted. The few "design" shows that have been on are nothing more than "put-on" drama! Who cares about the designer's home life? I don't want to hear their issues with their kids. I don't want to see the homeowners on camera in the middle of the night saying how tired they are, or how this was a much bigger remodel than they expected!
I also wonder, for each person that complains on these boards, how many more disappointed viewers, or ex-viewers, there are out there that don't take the time to complain. I didn't for quite some time, but, re-joined the boards just to speak my peace.
Well, do I sounded jaded? I never used to be! Thanks,HGTV! I'm signing off now!
I am so frustrated with the programming. Others have said it well-I feel like every time I turn to hgtv- brothers, cousins, or love it/list it, or house hunters are on. Where are Candice and Sarah r, Genevieve, Emily h, Vern, and the last hgtv star-she had a couple great shows and disappeared. I want hgtv to show me how to make my home attractive, how to projects, tips and tricks, Educational! So sick of the faux drama on worthless programs. Bravo does that already. Please bring back quality programs-I started to realize many months ago the only thing I was dvring was reruns of Sarah's House (Incredible, informative designer). So disappointed- hgtv used to be my most watched channel, now i keep checking the guide,,but rarely turn to watch anything.
I absolutely agree! I have loved watching HGTV for many years, but the last couple of years have been nothing by real estate marathons! I keep checking back hoping that SOMEONE at HGTV would "play a different tape", but so far no luck. They are losing devoted viewers in a hurry!!
I too have been watching HGTV for many years and have become disapointed and disillusioned with the programming. I have had about as much house hunters as I can take and if I see one more foreign country house hunters, I'm going to pass out. I have all but stopped watching because there are not other shows on except house hunters. Whatever happened to all of the Design Star winners? When will their shows be airing? I am still waiting. You have great talent, why aren't you using them? What about Vern and Sabrina Soto and the landscaping shows, where did all of those shows go? Bring back the old HGTV!!!
I just posted on HGTV's facebook wall awhile ago. A few people must have seen it, and also posted their complaints about programming today. Since HGTV is not seeing or responding to anything on here, it's worth a try.

I too am very disappointed in the programming of the show. it used to be the best show on cable. all of the programs we used to watch are all gone. what happened to the design star winners, david, Candace and the other great shows we use to see. I am so sick of house hunters and all the repeats that come on. I hate to stop watching hgtv altogether, but you guys leave us no choice, there's nothing good on it any more. please give us back our shows we loved to watch and no more house hunters and love it list it. can you tell us what happened to the shows and why you have pulled them please. a concerned viewer.
