    I use to be until they took all the craft and quilting shows off. I'm not planning to sell my house or redecorate. Just me, I guess:)

    I watch it alot,but not as much as I used to. I got hooked when I had my open heart surgery and then we sold our house and was looking at others, I would go wild watching and thinking up ways to change things in the houses we were looking at. Made it alot more fun looking.

    Not so much anymore, some of the current shows just don't appeal.

    I miss the craft and garden shows.

    It's a lot of fun to goof on the current shows with a man. Good times.

    My husband and I watch the house shows. Funny how these couples very seldom pick the house I think they should.

    I would love the channel if they would bring back the shows for crafting and gardening. I don't ever watch it anymore.

    I "USED" to be hooked on HGTV...now its just another useless channel with far too many shows on buying a new house and things that aren't realistic to most people. They removed gardening shows and craft shows...they should change their Channel name to reflect their is NO gardening shows ...HTV would be fine...I have even written to them to let them know how dissatisfied I am with their programming now

    I watch it because it beats sports & news. It is not as good as it used to be. To much repetition. Sometimes I think they think the viewers are idiots and can not remember what took place before the commercial. I could care less about a million dollar houses in another country. I love the USA. I agree with all above. However I would not trade my DH for anyone. Besides he has blond hair also.

    If the picture of the landscape is yours, you don't need HGTV!
    I used to love the show where 3 different designers came in and the couple would pick the one they liked best~~~
    Yeah, Holmes is good.
    I usually check out HGTV and then The Cooking Channel.

    ...and he's so efficient, he could probably build us both dream houses in a week. he's an AWESOME man!!! I have always been attracked to a man that can work with his hands. I never wanted an "office type" person.

    I was so addicted to HGTV for the first 2 years after we finally got cable....now, it seems like everytime I turn it on it's a re-run... maybe I'm just jaded.... the designed to sell, and sell this house seem scripted to me, ( who would let a realestate agent into thier house with out cleaning in?) same with the apartment show ( rent me???), and the property virgins.... are there really people out there in this day & age, that don't do a little research BEFORE they decide to buy a house? ( okay, I did say I'm probably jaded...) I just saw a program this weekend... early am, was it disaster DIY?... the professional was kind of mean to the slobby home owner... I mean really, if he was able to finish the job w/o help he probably would have... ( yes,...definately jaded.)

    I cancelled direct-tv a year ago. Never watched HGTV much after the quilt and sewing shows were cancelled.

    Same here. We watch HGTV, Law and Order, Top Gear, crime shows, and very little else these days.
