I found this graphic online from nickmom.com, and it made me laugh.
I still get comments on old posts where I crabbed about HGTV turning into the Real Estate Channel. Here's a small sample of the comments I still get on posts that are over two years old.
---Wow! I see I'm not alone! I hadn't watched much HGTV since the late '90s, when my satellite provider changed hands, but I do like the "White House Christmas" shows. Once I got sat service back, I was less than thrilled at the new lineup of programs -- every other thing is house hunting or competition. What happened to "Decorating Cents," "Room by Room," "This Small Space" and shows like that? Do the programmers think nobody wants to decorate anymore? I admit, I did get caught up in "Selling New York" -- if for no reason, than to see what purse the Kleier sisters were carrying! -- but now even THAT seems to have disappeared! I guess I'll just wait for December and the only show I actually want to watch. :-(
---I truly appreciated shows that helped me make my home better. I don't buy and sell or flip property. I'm just a little town girl with a house built in the 60's. I just want to keep my home up and repair as my budget allows. That is not the 90,000 some shows have us believe that everyone has. I'm glad to see that other people feel this way too. I do miss all the good, everyday people shows that HGTV used to have.
