What the heck has happened to HGTV?
It has been years since my wife and I watched the station almost religiously. When we gave up our cable HGTV was one of the stations we thought we’d miss, but turns out we really didn’t.
We were at a friend’s house recently who had her TV tuned to the station. Every so often I’d look over and House Hunters would be on, every time. It was either House Hunters, House Hunters International, or Hawaii Life, which is just House Hunters but in Hawaii. I finally asked our friend if there was some kind of marathon going on there. She said no, HGTV has other programs, it just seems like a lot of House Hunters to us because we don’t watch much TV anymore. Really?
We were at our friend’s house for over three hours and House Hunters was on the entire time. Even the promos during the commercials were for House Hunters. It certainly seemed to us that HGTV had become the House Hunters station.
My wife and I still miss Room by Room.
