I noticed the year of this show and seems to be an old show .
christmas Eve LIOLI was on for hours, everytime I changed back to HGTv several times and I got P'OD
started watching It a wonderful life,and the endless vhs's and dvd's of Christmas movies LOL
now what was wrong with HGTV playing anything or something connected with Christmas?This message has been edited. Last edited by: CC-IMO,
Absolutely sick to death of seeing this show listed everytime I switch to HGTV. I used to watch this channel almost exclusively because there was such a good variety of fun, creative and interesting shows. You've become boring, repetitive and not so fun anymore. Friday and Saturday nights, with a good variety of half hour shows, were a real treat. Now it's just constant reruns of the most annoying shows and most unappealing hosts on tv. No more Love it or List it, a LOT less Property Brothers... let's get back to what we loved in the beginning: choices, variety, hosts we want to watch and learn from. Stop showing huge blocks of shows - what a cheesy and cheap way to fill a schedule.
If Hillary told me she guaranteed she will give me everything I want for the budget I give her and she then told me I couldn't get half, I would have her in court. She complains when someone questions her professionalism. I don't question it, I laugh at it, because it does not exist. What professional would promise the moon with out ever even looking at the structure. How many times has she found out after agreeing to do something that it was physically impossible because of a load bearing wall or zoning restriction or rotted frame?
I think it doesn't really matter because it is all scripted malarkey anyhow. I'm with the people who say this crap should be cancelled. It is the worst pretend "reality" show (bad acting, contrived drama, etc.) ever. The stars are annoying and it's the same formula: conflict, oops some undiscovered issue that must be overcome, the BIG decision....boring!
I like the people but the show is so obviously staged. They portray one spouse as being for moving and the other against and at the end you find out it just wasn't true. If I wanted to watch reality shows I would watch TLC or A&E. I don't care how people feel. How many times do we want to see people whining about how long it takes and how much it costs.
What could have been a fantastic show turned to POO. The home owners (who are basically sloppy, filthy, hoarding, loud, rude pigs) act so high and mighty about the properties shown by David. "Scripting??" And how many unforeseen issues will Hillary deal with, predictable and boring. Get real HGTV or I will boycott your advertisers, OK?
Quit trying to push your political views with the carpet munching "couple". No one wants to sit down in the evening and be bombarded with that nasty crap.This message has been edited. Last edited by: Desertbull,
What are you talking about Desertbull?
yes "WHAT" are you talking about ???????
I believe he was referring (in a very rude way) to the lesbian couple who were on the show Monday night.
What I don't understand is why property bros can use such a lower budget and come up with much more renovations and less problems?, I was amazed at the results and the results that were amazing for the lower budgetThis message has been edited. Last edited by: CC-IMO,
Too bad you feel YOUR views should be represented here. Go back under your rock. Your name calling alone should have you banned from these boards.
Every show is the same as the last one! Glad I'm not the only one who can't stand it. This used to be such a good channel-I had so many favorites.
Sometimes I have nothing Tivoed to watch and my first instinct is to hit HGTV's channel..... weekends seem to be nothing but Love it or Leave it.... so... I leave it!
I agree. One week-end that's all that was on. I can't stand the show, and they play the episodes constantly.
Another Canadien import that *****.
Interesting idea but HORRIBLE execution. Bad acting, etc. And seriously, she has NEVER completely one job the way it was quoted (if this were real). Stuff does come up in the real world when projects are done, but every time? I know home remodelers - no.
And there was some U.S. version of the show that came on for a couple of episodes not long ago that I caught by accident. It was worse, but the exact same format and "oops we can't do this now" stuff. Got very old, very quick.
I think this show is always predictable but I still want to see what Hillary comes up with. I do not take the show too seriously or any of the shows on HGTV too seriously. Entertainment to some, a nuisance to others and if I don't like the show I just change the channel.
Yes, I can change the channel... but when I don't have any shows I want to watch my first go to is HGTV.... and when they have hours and hours of this crap show its not just disappointing, its hurting their ratings....
LOVE IT OR LIST IT - IS THE MOST ANNOYING SHOW ON "TV" BESIDE THE HOUSEWIVES. HGTV ought to listen to us when we speak. I seriously doubt that - for instance - Candice Olsen or the Property Brothers get this kind of negative outcry!
I agree. HGTV is the first thing I turn on in the morning with coffee - and is my "go to" channel. But I noticed something. Ever since Love It Or List It came on HGTV, the whole channel has gone down the tubes!!
WHERE IS DESIGN ON A DIME?
WHERE IS DESIGNED TO SELL?
WHERE ARE -- THE UNSELLABLES - COLOR SPLASH - CANDICE OLSEN - SELLING NEW YORK - AND ALL MY OTHER FAVORITE SHOWS??
FURTHERMORE -- HAS ANYONE SEE EVEN ONE SHOW WITYH "DANIELLE - LAST YEAR'S DESIGN STAR WINNER?" I HAVEN'T SEEN ONE SHOW FROM HER.
Something's going on with this network and it's ruinig my whole day. LOL
I've been watching for about 4 years and feel each new episode is a carbon copy of the last. In a way, I feel sorry for the people who apply to be on the show...they have to act like jerks just to get some home improvements done for a little less than they would had they done them themselves. The show doesn't take into account the crew, the fact they can purchase materials at much lower cost etc. I don't think any designer worth anything would take sledge hammers to walls only to find what?...poor wiring, bad plumbing or walls that support. You can bet the show thoroughly investigates what the costs will be before they start...the rest is for show. The people who do it are looking for a cheaper way to get the work done or really are hoping to increase the value of the home so they can move on. I also imagine they look at more than 3 places...they are shown in that order for effect.
Hey, I find this show particularly annoying as well, but it makes no sense to wish so many people out of work that have a job due to this show. Let's be realistic here.
Seriously? You think HGTV doesn't want to know that people are turned on their channel, then turning it off because that horrid show is on?
Right - I'd really like to know what happened to my fave shows like - Designed To Sell / The Unsellables / Design on a Dime -- does anyone know?
After looking at your list, and having watched the show, the homeowners are definitely getting their money's worth.
In everyday life, yes, I agree that unless you have money to burn it doesn't make sense to do a renovation just for a sale. Renovations should be made for the owner's enjoyment or out of necessity.
The show is fun, though, and it's amazing to see how even the newer homes can have serious structural issues. Too bad they haven't ventured over to this side of the border, yet!
It must have been very popular in Canada. Don't see any of the episodes in the US currently.
Now it's 99% "Love it" and I hate that! Why bother watching when you know the outcome?
Now it's 99% "Love it" and I hate that! Why bother watching when you know the outcome is always the same?
I am amazed to read all these comments about how people hate this show and want to see it cancelled. If you don't like the show, they why are you watching it? Turn the Channel! And for the comments about finding all the problems in every home, well, old homes tend to have problems. I'd be surprised to find one of these old houses that didn't have a problem. One thing I don't like though is when the builder on the show starts doing repairs to a house that has nothing to do with the remodel and insist that it has to be done, regardless of what Hilary's or the home ownders' position on conducting such repairs are. He act as if his mission is to fix every structural problem in a home during a remodel. A builder that's a bit less aggressive and confers with home owners before conducting such repairs would be nice, as it is the home owners' money after all.This message has been edited.

What are you talking about? "Carpet Munching"? Just because someone lives a different life style than you doesn't make it a political statement. If you don't want to watch "that crap", turn the channel.

I do turn the channel.... I can't watch this show. The point of griping about it, is they show this show for hours, hours that could have interesting programming. I used to turn on HGTV and could watch for hours, now I put it on and this dreck is on... if they cancel the show maybe there would be something good to watch,
I think you're missing the point!!! No one is watchin it! Just because people keep commenting against 'Love It Or List It' - does NOT mean people are watching it. What you're missing is that --- every time we tune into HGTV - there's Hillary arguing with homeowners again!! They play this show over FIFTY (50) TIMES A WEEK, but all the other designers are GONE!! Further, the homeowners are always yelling and displeased with Hillary. HGTV viewers do NOT like to see that kind of COMBAT on our favorite network. We turn to HGTV to GET AWAY from that kind of thing. Well, the network found out that just because they shove something down our throat 50 times a weel, does not mean we're going to like it more! HGTV viewers are also DEEPLY RESENTFUL of 'LIOLI' because ALL THE OTHER DESIGN SHOWS THAT WE LOVED SO MUCH ARE ALL GONE!! Now there's only "Hillary" arguing with people. It's ridiculous. HGTV believes that its loyal viewers are actually going to lay down and accept it. Well, I read an article the other day online that in the last year the network has LOST $200 million in advertising dollars because of their new program list -- WHICH IS OBVIOUSLY NOT WORKING!!!!!!! LOL. So you missed the point!! No one's watching this crappy show. It's just that every time we tune in ... Hillary's on.
Great post Skelly.
Lost 200 million dollars? Really!!!!! interesting, perhaps now they will bother to read this message board and see why. LOL
I agree! Hilary and David are both so phony and irritating. Boring! Every show is the same. You can bet Hilary is going to encounter problems that will take more money which means she can't do what she promised. Any intelligent designer would allow for those possibilities. And the fake competition premise is silly.
Wouldn't it be kind of nice to have a show where the host(s)interact with the viewers. Maybe a show where they take viewers design questions and show solutions? At least it would be different every time and not the same old repetitive format.
The only shows I watch anymore are HH and HHI. I liked The Unsellables very much. But LIOLI, in my opinion, has run its course.
Run its course? This program should have never been done. What kind of an idiot is a person that goes and tries to do a renovation on TV and knows before hand that she won't be able to accomplish it, and let's the owner think that she can ? To me, this show borders on mental fraud. People are not stupid, don't they know that?
Please cancel or change actors. This gives reality a bad name. People would not talk with each other in this way in real life and keep working together.
What gets me beside the cheesy banter between the stars is they way owners blame Hilary for things that are wrong with THEIR houses!
HATE This show!
YES! This show is ridiculous. So very staged and unbelievable. Nasty people and untalented hosts (or just given lousy material). Whatever it is please, please, please broadcast something else!
What is amazing is that the homeowners don't realize that you don't spend that kind of money if you are selling. It would never pay. I am sure that any Realtor would tell them that. So in reality, we don't know if they ever buy the house that they like, or if they ever moved. and if those renovations have actually increase the value of their homes. or actually anything. we just simply assume that what we see is what it is.
I always though it was scripted to point, but it definitely could be 100% scripted, which I can't imagine is necessary. On top of that, when I want to watch something on that channel, they will run the same show over and over. They need to have more variety each day!
I'm sure they understand that very well. It's common knowledge in Toronto that these people sign up for a discounted reno - nothing more, nothing less.
David does have a realtor license in real life but he doesn't serve as the participants' realtor. (A production company won't take on that kind of liability.) For purposes of this show, he's an actor.
No, they don't purchase one of those homes. The only people that ultimately move were moving before they signed up for the show so they used their own realtor and had previously purchased their new home.
For every reno, the homeowners have signed off on the worklist in advance of the show. If you review the work completed when it's a "list it" episode, it's typically the work you'd either complete for inspection or work you'd probably want to do before listing.
