    H is for home
    G is for Garden
    T is for think yes
    V is for very good
    that is HGTV

    NOW here what u are

    H is for home
    T is for to rethink line up
    V is for very bad picks of show you have on

    I hate that you have design star and don't give the winners there place to show what they can do. You just throw them off the air after a few shows they do. I stopped tuning in because you took all the design and gardening show off for more and more and more and more and more and more and more and more home selling show that are getting old because you show them over and over and over and over day in and day out. I now tune in to Create on 242 that Comcast has. The Big People at the top need to lean to there fans and not just them self at all. It time to get out of the dark and in to the light. Go back to what the fans want and need in to day world.

    Another design star and can't wait. I have watched it since the beginning with David and the only one I disagreed with was Antonio. I thought Dan should have won it. But since I have watched Antonio's show and realized what I didn't see. What a talented man! I can't say (being almost 70) that I would want him to do a room for me, but my kids or grandkids would love it. He also surrounds himself with such talented people, what a crew! So I had to write and say keep up the good work and I'll be watching.

    Good luck! I’ll try and do the same thing. I am a person who also feels gutliy all the time for pretty much anything and everything. It just comes natural. I am a very responsible person so it’s easy to just take on the guilt as well. But it doesn’t help anyone for me to feel gutliy. And people even tell me not to feel gutliy for whatever it is I feel gutliy for but I still do it. I need to stop. Thanks for the post.- Melissa
