WHY do you broadcast "Love it or List it" all day every day? Marathon programming in general is very annoying. If one doesn't particularly like a certain program,one is stuck with it for hours. That is when I turn the channel. "Love it or List it" is too predictable and scripted. I never watch it. Too many reruns also. If you listen to viewers you will find that I am not alone in my opinion.
I AGREE! I am so tired of turning on what used to be one of my favorite networks, only to find "Love It or List It" scheduled for yet ANOTHER entire day. Enough, already. What happened to creative decorating ideas, decorating on a budget, etc.? Obviously there are other viewers felling the same way, which is an indication that your viewership is dwindling.
Bring back Design on a Dime, Candace Olsen Divine Design! Bring back actual design inspiration shows....not this endless parade of houses for sale and flippers. I used to be an avid HGTV watcher. Now? It's a last resort if nothing else is on. Please!
Shut up Peggy. You mention one show that you don't like. Many people do like the marathons since we work and can't sit all day complaining about re-runs. U just shut your mouth. If you don't like it. Change the channel. There are 300 other channels to watch.
Anon that was 3 years... Glad to see you blow up on someone for saying that. It's true, it's literally reruns throughout the day with no variation. True, there are other channels but they do the same. With chromecast and projectfreetv, I can stream anything which can be a good solution for others. That's what you should have suggested instead of freaking out and insulting someone.
Do not bring tarek and Christina back or I am done
As subscripter of print and watcher of HGTV, I am alarmed about the promotional advertising of AL Jazerra cable network on this channel. I am not a fan and would chose to watch another channel that did not advertise middle east values, and try to attract watchers and brainwash everyone about how peace loving there region is....................no way.
Better to have both perspectives than just one.
Love HGtV.....can't wait to hear the winners of the 2014 Dream house in Truckee, CA. Hopefully it will be us...thank you for great shows
Just a word about the upcoming "Flip it Forward". Has anyone at corporate listened to the hate that the hosts of this show spew? Do you think that this will sit well with your audience? Really. They are right in there with Duck Dynasty when it comes to anti-abortion, anti-Muslim and anti-homosexual rants. Please check out their history. I live near them and they are over the top and their solution for all problems is a bible quote and a reminder that Jesus is the answer.
So, if someone doesn't agree with your way of life, or a way of life you agree with, that makes them hateful? Anti abortion? So, if one doesn't agree with killing children in the womb, that is hateful? Since when is killing something, a loving act? Anti Muslim? Do you mean anti Jihadist? Oh, excuse us, they simply flew planes into buildings and a field in PA. on 9/11, killing over 3000 Americans, why would that make someone not like groups like CAIR who are tied to HAMAS, or the Muslim Brotherhood. Anti gay? What, they don't agree with two men or two women marrying? It's only been between a man and woman for thousands of years, how foolish of us simple minded bigots. You sound like the bigot, and anti Christian. People like you are the true bigots, and ignorant fools. You love everyone, don't you? Never said a bad word about anybody, did you. Shut up.
I know you have spent your life going around thinking your something special, calling out bigots everywhere. The bigot all along was just a mirrir away
We will no longer watch HGTV at all, since we value life and we try to conserve Christian values. Obviously, HGTV doesn't value its audience. And I might mention that we watched a ton of HGTV. Never again.
I'm with Gen Yvette Sutton. I have blocked HGTV from my Dish Network viewing list. Thanks HGTV and your double standards. I will no longer watch HGTV.
And I am cancelling my magazine subscription because HGTV does not believe in free speech and free association. And I might add that I'm an avid decorator.
ditto all of the above, i will no longer watch any tv. I've seen gay couples remodel their houses, wealthy people turn their noses up at extravagant furniture, but since free speech is not allowed I've found more time to work in my yard, visit friends, read and pray for this country. If you don't respect Christian values, then I have no time for you.
It is amazing that those who cry tolerance are so intolerant. Their anger reminds one of a little boy who toy has been taken away and pouts for the rest of his life. Their intolerance also shows a complete ignorance of Christianity.
Who does HGTV think they are?!?! Why not let the viewers decide if they don't agree with the Benham brothers instead of censoring us. There's this little thing called Religious belief that applies to ALL United States citizen not just a select group. It doesn't matter which side of the fence you sit on with their beliefs the fact that HGTV decided to play Big Brother is the real issue at hand and it would be smart for all parties to keep that piece of information in mind.
Sorry about the incorrect date...should have been April. THANK YOU HGTV for realizing that most of us are tired of contention. Peace.
I just deleted HGTV from my DVR even though I love many of shows and to date have not seen anything political or religious in the programming. I am not religious, but I believe in freedom of religion guaranteed by the Constitution and as long as the programming is not political or religious what those who appear on your programs do on their own time is irrelevant and firing the hosts of Flip it Forward which I have never seen for what they say or do off camera is WRONG.Sorry, not watching HGTV will leave a big gap in my TV viewing, but I do put my money where my mouth is.It's been fun.Goodbye.
I am very sad to see such a wonderful concept of helping families be removed due to the legal rights of Americans to have opinions. Let the viewers choose what to watch or not. Flip it Forward is based on pay it forward.
My wife and I feel the same way. I am sick of those who embrace homosexuality deciding what is on tv. We watch HGTV every day but not any more. We will submit a list of their sponsors to our political group so we can begin our contacting. Hopefully this is some kind of mistake as my wife and I do like many of their property shows
My wife and I do not watch Bravo or anything associated with homosexuality but we also don't whine about what is on their network. Live and let live. We would also like to be left alone. Let us Christians have our shows and you homosexuals have yours and we can live together, but if you mess with us we will try to ruin your trip too buy using the same tactics as you,.namely boycotting
Anon, I don't share your views. I'm upset about HGTV's actions because they violated all our Constitutional rights of freedom of speech and religion. I'm personally against abortion, but it is the law of the land and gays are just people who are feeling their oats now because they are being pandered to by lefties in power.
Hello all. So I saw that "Flip it Forward" has been cancelled. It's sad that the show is being cancelled because of the way the gentlemen choose to live their lives. It's sad that because people don't agree with ones belief or lifestyle that we call it "hate". If we don't like the way a family member is raising their child does it mean you hate them. no. Just because you don't agree with the way you boss does things does that mean you quit, no.We should be careful about how we use the word "hate". Just because we don't agree doesn't mean we hate one another. We don't have to like what others are doing but we can agree to disagree. Christ came to love and as believers we do love. John 3:15-17...Check it out. It has the potential to change your life. :)
I use to love HGTV and now I find myself upset that it is caught up in this seem to be new fad to discriminate against peoples personal beliefs and moral to live by. What happen to freedom of speech and belief???? YOU are being totally hypocritical. You as a company are held to civil rights and anti-discrimination. It goes both ways!!! You obviously don't discriminate against homosexuals and there beliefs or morals so why are you discriminating against heterosexuals? This is completely VILE and should be unlawful. This goes for every other similar situation around the world!! To put this PLAIN as day-You don't and can not fire people who are homosexual (obviously believe in it). Then you should not and should not be allowed to fire someone that does not believe in it. This and every other company should be boycotted for this behavior!
I agree. I will not watch HGTV again untill they change there mission to free speech for all.
i will never watch HGTV or buy their magazine again....
I am disappointed in your decision to pull the Benham brothers and Flip it Forward, due to the brother's thoughts. HGTV--you are being bamboozled by the left. They are on a mission to silence free speech. WAKE UP. Be courageous and don't let them take our freedoms away. Step out of the group-think box and think for yourself. Remember this will lead to everyone being less free in the end and it won't end well. History has shown than.
HGTV, whenever you have a gay couple on one of your shows having their home remodeled I turn the channel. It's that easy. If you don't like what's on, change the channel, period. We use to be a nation with freedoms, the freedom to express whatever our opinion may be like it or not. Not anymore. We are becoming a communist country with censorship and our 2nd amendment rights are being trampled on. America, you need to wake up! Or you’ll get up one morning and wonder WTF just happened.
Tolerance goes both ways. Why does 10% of the population determine whateveryone has a chance to watch on TV? There are many channels which myhusband and I don't watch for a variety of reasons. If homosexuals don't wantto watch the "Flip It Forward" program, they can simply switch off the TV orturn the channel. They are not being forced to watch. Let them watch the programs on HGTV that show homosexuals and lesbians looking for property.
My feeling exactly!!! I watched that channel almost all the time except when they had homosexual couples then I just changed channels or turned the TV off.
I have watched HGTV from the beginning. I didn't care who the host was or the couples on the show. I am saddened that you will not be airing the Flip it Forward and I am no longer allowing HGTV, DIY Network, Food Network, Cooking Channel, Travel Channel, or Great American Country or any other Channel the Scripps Networks Interactive acquires in my home.
To the management of HGTV - I will pray for you, you are obviously are Christian Bigots.
Sorry to hear that you are "racist" against the Benham Brothers. You knew what they believed when you contracted them. Just a little pressure and you caved. Most disturbing and disappointed.
HGTV,I just discovered your channel and was delighted in many of the shows, but now I will not watch it until you reverse your discrimination against Christians. It is unbelievable that having family values and valuing life will get you fired. It truly is calling evil good and good evil. I hope you come to your senses and stop pandering to the squeaky wheel.
HGTV!! You did it now! How dare you run scared because of someone brave enough to express their Christian Beliefs of fundamental values of family life.Why is it so bad to say: I'm a Christian and Same-Sex life is Wrong according to God who tells us so!!! He made us and we all have to answer to him. No more watching your shows!!!
HGTV promotes life styles that are against the Word of God. I am a fantastic designer but I love the Lord of whom has given me the talent. On all my websites I let person know my talent comes from the Lord.
your ANTI- CHRISTIAN VIEWS will be your down fall. We built this country on Christian values and the loss of them is exactly why our country is in such deep trouble. You and you QUEER associates will not have any of my business. You and your perverts will someday answer to God. I am glad I am not you. I am a sinner as we all are but these choices you have made for money.....I hope you enjoy your short term wealth....you will not have it when you leave this life...My prayer is that people like you and you associates will wake up and do what is right...you are killing this great country and your opportunity for life ...
People of America Stand Tall and use your names...Be Proud you have values ..God knows who you are....I will never back down or hide who I am...if you want to make a difference make sure the good people know who you are and let the others know also....remember the men who shed their blood and STAND TALL FOR WHAT IS RIGHT...GOD BLESS AMERICA.
Again, you continue to LOWER your standards by dropping the show by the Benshaw Brothers, helping needy families to flip houses. Why do even FAMILY channels have to get involved with racism, homosexuality, government, abortion and other objectional issues to family viewing. Is there anything left that a family can sit down and watch together and LEARN something of value from. Something moral and to teach our youth to love and give to one another? Really, shame on you. I will discontinue watching your channel as I do not approve of the values you chose to send out for children to see..
I don't believe in homosexuality is right but I do watch HGTV and it's programs. I am a christian and if I don't agree on that certain episode, I will channnel. It is that easy. My neice was gay but she changed and married a man and it went sour. She decisided to have a baby out of wedlock. That's her decision but I still love her and support her emotionally.
I was sorry to discover that HGTV was anti-Christian and anti-American when they cancelled flip It Forward and the Benham Brothers. As a Christian I was raised to treat everyone well and as an American to treat them equal,Obviously HGTV does not believe in these principles and I will bedeleting this channel.
I have long been a fan of HGTV. But I am not a fan of homosexuality. So that being said whenever there was a homosexual couple featured on any of the shows I would just simply not watch it. I did not boycott your channel though. But since you decided not to air "Flip it Forward" mainly because of their Christianity I have not watched anything on HGTV. I know this doesn't matter to you but I just wanted to get it said and out there to you. A bigot is a bigot no matter what they are against.
I wrote this comment but didn't sign my name. Did not see the option before. I am not afraid to sign my name because I am proud of my Christianity.
I am very saddened that you choose to NEVER care what the Christian community thinks. How long will anybody that defends their faith be a pariah in this country? If someone believes in traditional marriage HOW is that a slam to gay marriage? The shameful way your network has caved to political correctness with the Flip it Forward show has me tuning our HGTV and encouraging others to do so as well. We wait for you to do the right thing in a country that was founded on Christian values and FREE speech and FREE thinking!!
I was a fan of HGTV for many years and learned a lot about home decorating in its shows. But HGTV has insulted my core values in pulling "Flip It Forward" just because the Benham brothers have expressed religious views regarding the nature of marriage as between a man and a woman and the sanctity of life. HGTV offended core American values of free of speech and freedom of religion. This is yet another example of the social communism that has infiltrated the powers that be in American politics, corporate life, media and entertainment. I am boycotting HGTV's shows and will encourage all others I know to do so. HGTV should also realize that any viewer has the option of tuning a show out that they do not like for any reason. Banning a show based on the expressed religious beliefs of its hosts does not provide viewers any option.
Listen to yourself Anon (and all the rest of you saying the same thing here). You speak of "Core American Values" and "social communism". Do you really think that there were no closeted Gays during the creation days of these "Core American Values"?! Are you really that narrow minded? And no, I'm not gay. HGTV has the right to cancel any show it chooses - especially when the hosts either are, or are associated with known hate people or groups. Their father is - simple as that. (and I don't believe their speech either about not being in that same category).Bravo HGTV and Anon -- along with all you other Anon's -- you offend me.
After reading an article some time ago stating the decision of HGTV regarding the personal beliefs of the Benham brothers I was angered and saddened. I have written a letter to subscription and cancelled my magazine order and I have sent a letter to HGTV Headquarters, as well. Censorship is a slippery slope we do not want to get near whether we agree with the content or not. Not to mention the fact Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Religion being ignored in this process I am exasperated with 'everyone' throwing people under the bus because of their Christian beliefs or a negative incident that happened in their past. At what point is someone going to stand up and say 'this is life, deal with it.' Why do we have to crucify everyone...sorry if I offended anyone using the term 'crucify'...not really. I believe the financial side out weighs doing the right thing. Who will be the first to take a stand and when will this all end? You can't teach common sense, unfortunately. Where are people with some backbone?!? By the way, my husband and I were regular viewers of HGTV, but we have not watched or purchased a magazine since reading about your decision in early May. I hope you and many others will rethink your decisions and act accordingly.
I agree- I am no longer watching HGTV or visiting their sponsors. In America, you should not have to lose your job because of your faith. Freedom of conscience is the most important freedom we have.
