    TS has gone from a must see show for me to...ehhh if I catch it cool, if not no biggie also pending if there's anything else going on to do or watch. I don't know exactly why but I'm guessing it has to do with the overstock of these type shows in the viewing market now

    I loveee Andrew. Actually, I loveeee when he and Chayce and Amy Wynn work together. They're all a great bunch to watch, entertaining and funny!!


    I know I've heard this rumor before...and at one time the host said to Chayce & Andrew.."Is this your first lover's tiff?"

    So. Are they a couple?!
    I NEED to know..it'll put my nosey-nora mind at ease.

    I feel the same libra.

    For me, the problem I have with TS is that I really don't rate most of the designers.
    I'm with ducky, Vern was pretty much the only reason to watch the show.
    The guy works wonders with the budget and really cares what the HO's think of the designs.
    Christy is nice enough, but I find her designs hit and miss. Edward's love of black painted furniture drives me crazy, Barry, while I think he;s a cutie has not impressed me with his designs.

    TS has definitely gone from a "must watch" to a "if there's nothing else on" show for me.

    Reasons?
    - 100k show - what a waste
    - Addition of more designers that have no real design appeal for me
    - Ty's ego getting too big for his britches
    - Less Vern

    The addition of Andrew Dan Jumbo has peaked my curiosity. I noticed that he was no longer on WYWO and it's good to see him "trading up". I can just see the sparks flying with some of the TS designers. He could hardly manage one room before, what will he do with two? Sounds like the making of some good TV.

    Hey Maveno.... great avatar!

    How could I forget the 100k show?

    It still disgusts me to think of how money was wasted on that show.
    Laurie and her $6000 curtains and $1800 mirror, ridiculous.
    Just a complete waste of money and a wasted opportunity to really do some good for a lot of people with that budget.

    Ty annoys the hell out of me.
    The $100k episode did allow him to showcase his skills, he's undoubtedly a talented carpenter. The budget and time constraints just don't allow for him to create masterpieces very often, or to work with decent quality materials.
    If he feels he's above making MDF boxes week in week out, then he needs to step aside and let Amy Wynn and Carter take over completely.
    I wouldn't be sorry to see the back of the little egomaniac.

    to everyone above. Especially in regards to Edward and his obsessive love of black furniture, and the 100 grand episode.

    I don't know why...I just.....stopped....caring. I haven't watched a full episode in months. And the 100 grand episode killed me too. I mean, okay, if they weren't going to do a habitat house (which they SO should have), why limit it to one room? Just a silly, silly, waste and not very interesting.

    If Ty gets naked again...well...I can't say I'll turn the channel or anything. But he needs to move the tool belt this time.

    Well at least I'm not the only one...I used to love to watch, even the repeats. I was a huge Vern fan, too. When they started with all the new designers I just lost interest...between Kia and Barry and Hildi's ridiculous "designs" I just don't care anymore.

    Bring back Vern!!!
    It was me. I let the dogs out.

    I totally agree with everyone above. They have gone way too far over the top with Hildi. Why, why, why did they get rid of Vern? I saw in my newspaper a while ago that he was going to be at some convention to talk about designing. Hildi needs to be from the show.
