Bring Back Hilary & David on 'Love It or List It'!!!! -_- Sign In/Join 
posted
I absolutely love the original hosts Hilary & David on Love It or List It. My friend's & I never ever miss an episode. Hilary's designs are magnificent & always leaves me in awe!!! David's sense of humour, their snappy remarks, the chemistry they share, are always funny & just seems so original & unrehearsed. Hilary & David are honest, witty, free spirited & always tell the homeowners the truth; good or bad.

Recommendation: Hilary neesds to have a bigger contingency within her budget for those unforseen high costs that always sneak there way in. Maybe cut down on the cost of appliances & decorations before diverting from the original plan.

Now the two new younger hosts for this new season is an insult to the show & the avid viewers that never ever miss an episode (like myself)are disgruntled. If one of the reasons for the 2 younger hosts were to bring in younger viewers then Hilary & David was doing a fine job because I am 22 years old & my friends are merely 2-4 years older than I.

I watched their 1st episode & unfortunately they were not as close to the remarkable, unmatched, quality Hilary & David sucessfully delivers. Love It or List It will never be the same, & I am truly disappointed!!!

My friends & I will try our hardest to watch another episode and give the 2 new hosts a fair chance but you can never repeat a first impression, and the one given to me was poor. I found my self flipping through channels at times. Did I mention I hated the new designer designs O_O!! My friends and I chorused "OOOO EMMM GGGGGG!!! WTH is that??!!!" and later laughed becaused we were appalled by the ugly design. She should get some pointers from Hilary Wink

Bring back Hilary & David!! I seriously hope they're on vacation & thats why the 2 new hosts are there. If the reason for the new hosts is for a trial run .... then consider the run a FAILURE asap. They are not what Love It or List It need.

<3 yah Hilary & David!!! muahhhhhh
Miss u much :'(

anyone know why there are new hosts?
I do like the show,
just NOT the endless repeats and have to admit the show won't seem the seem the same without
Hilary and David,
IMO I think Hilarys designs are wonderful and Davids abuse from the homeowners is something to watch,of course there are some who do not like the show,
but
it is different and we kinda got used to the constant stream of nasty,offensive homeowners
LOL

I really don't know why someone in their right mind don't love and appreciate the show. To me, Love It or List It is the number one show on HGTV right now.

The show is sooo good that TLC tried a spin off of the show with 'Something Borrowed, Something New' where the new bride can either wear her mother's original wedding dress that the designer revamped or take the new wedding dress chosen in the store.

Anyways I'll continue watching old re-runs of Love It or List It until Hilary & David return. I sincerely hope they're on vacation and have not been permanently replaced by those two.

Finally saw a show with the new designer and realtor -- who I'm sure -- just happen to be younger/hipper than Hilary and David.

At first blush I don't like them. But I guess I'll get used to them. Given that they are saying THE EXACT SAME WORDS that hilary and David say.

I declare the male realtor said literally word for word what I've heard David say.

Apparently W network that actually makes the shows thought a second show, in Canada called LIOLI Vancouver, would be a good idea.

They are definitely young clones of the original, the script remains the same. The real estate agent can't do snark like David.

Both shows certainly bring out the passion on the boards. People love it or hate it.

I hate the new hosts! So over acted. I really wanted to watch for the sweepstake but even 50,000 couldn't make me watch! Awful

Clbselah - even though david & the new realtor share the same script, David's delivery is far better & comes off naturally & unrehearsed. This new realtor has a poor tv presence in my point of view, he'sjust blahhhh

Sparky - I agree with u, the new real estate agent isn't on par when it comes to David's personality and tv presence.

Trishaf67 - Yes the two new hosts are indeed awful but the most annoying thing to me is the designer's ugly design. And seeing that this was her first show I believe that showing was her best ewww. But Trisha I'm not too aware of this 50,000 sweepstake. please share with me what it is

There is a mortgage madness sweepstakes going on right now. They put up a code word during breaks on Monday night shows. You then put the code into the on-line entry. The sweepstakes are only open on Monday nights.

You wouldn't miss them if you lived in NJ.Maybe your HGTV line up is different than mine, because here in NJ, LIOLI is practically the only thing on. I have completely given up on HGTV since they have reduced their programming to constant marathons of reruns.

I too am in agreement with the majority of viewers of Love it Or List It. LOLI2 is HORRIBLE. The same thing happened to Property Virgins when Sandra R left. The show was never the same and I really hope this new show is not going to replace David and Hillary who are just awesome all the way around!!! Would love to hear from someone from HGTV as to what they are thinking.

Hillary is a complete joke. She bungles every project she touches and she is in complete denial when her customers complain. It's about time that she gets the boot!!!

I agree with Mixie, I like David and Hillary. She always finds ways to make old warn out homes look beautiful, and I love how confident she is. The other two are just carbon copies.

I agree with you on about Property Virgins. Sandra was gentle and motherly when she was helping novice buyers.

I've never seen her get upset with any of them, unless I missed a program or more.

I just hope they don't replace Hillary and David for those new hosts. I don't like them at all and I will no longer watch the show if Hillary and David are no longer on it.....

i am in my right mind...i think..lol and i hate the execution of both shows...the concept is a decent one but i feel the implementation by the producing company and some obvious differences between canadian language/phrases versus american annoy the heck out of me..
the execution issues stem from the obvious staged drama/fake smart allecky banter and poor acting.
the american/canadian disconnect for me has to do with overuse of the phrase "open concept", and the continual reference to the actors as "designer Hillary" and "realtor David" as opposed to just Hillary and David. I may be alone on this but i find that annoying and cheesy to hear while trying to watch the show.

I detest the original show and this one is worse. If Jillian says "adorable" one more time, I am going to reach into the TV screen and slap her! She is insufferable and not nearly as "adorable" as she thinks she is. Oh, and if she is an interior decorator, I'm the King of England!

Just love the Hilary/David chemistry. They keep my interest. They remind me in a way of Fred & Ethel Mertz. Even though the premise of the show needs to be formulaic for production purposes, the two leads shine with a personal realism and underlying affinity for the other that I find comforting and attractive. Additionally, I respect their obvious intelligence and savvy. This show has grown on me, I search it out, and for me, it just clicks. The combo of Hilary and David cannot be duplicated.

I am so dissapointed that David and Hillary are not on the show. I do not like the new version at all. Sorry, i like the marker and paper version of the design versus the tablet. I like the connection that David and Hillary have with each other. The new hosts try to imitate what David and Hillary have and it clearly does not work. NOt to mention Desta, Fergus and the other gentleman whose name escapes me at the moment. Please say they are going to return.

The production website is still advertising for casting calls for both LIOLI & LIOLI Too, so I don't think we have to worry about losing David, Hillary and the crew!
