I thought Jane Brown was terrific last night. Loved her show and she looked gorgeous. Jane if you read any threads on this bulletin board, I just wanted to tell you that. :-)

Sorry that I missed the show, but she looks wonderful in the video.

I didn't get the point of the show to be quite honest. It was just a repeat of the bags and shoes sold all day long.

I hope that when it comes back it will have more of a point/theme to it.

I like Jayne and thought she looked really great last night.

I enjoyed it. She did a great job.

QVC used to have a point sometimes but I don't think it does any more. It's just mostly selling meat on a payment plan and selling women bags, shoes and makeup they don't need.

I saw JBs' Downtown show and enjoyed it. She was upbeat but not over the top, talked so she could be understood. She also gave her guest time to explain their products. When people do a good job they should be recognized for it. There are plenty of people who engage in judgemental picking. Thanks Jayne for a good job.

I love Jayne. She and Lisa M. are my faves.

I thought the show as just a rerun of the rest of the shoes and bags shows they had allo day. I'm not a fan and this was no different IMO.

I didn't think the show was anything special, either. I'm guessing that the hosts make more money if they have a show with their name attached to it. Otherwise, what's the point?{#emotions_dlg.confused1}

I'm sorry, I just thought I'd through a wrench into everything and post a nice, happy and positive thread about a host instead of the typical, you su-ck, you can't talk, you're so not amazing, amazing.

Silly me...

Didn't watch and won't watch her....she is my least favorite host since she developed an attitude.

Thanks for the positive thread. I appreciated it and thought the show was good also!

I thought Jayne did an excellent job. She was professional, articulate, pleasant; all the attributes I always admired in her before she was paired with Pat in the morning fashion shows when both of them got too chatty and silly. Actually I'm just not a fan of host pairings in general.

As for criticizing the program for the repetitious product offerings, isn't that always the case? Has anyone been given their own program and come on with innovative new products? If so, I must have missed it. Jill just had a home show which she said was five years in the making and I saw the same old candles and endless trinkets I've been looking at for years. Not a criticism of Jill at all. Just making the point that these are sales people who sell what they are told to.

But the POINT of Jill's show (of which she was a mentor to Jayne, according to Jayne's opening of her show) is that she sells items and gives decorating tips and adds her Martha Stewart spin to the show and she doesn't have vendors on, she presents everything herself 99% of the time. She puts the items together in themes.

The POINT of My Time with MBR is to showcase products in different themes throughout the show (Time for Relaxation, Time for Exercise, Time for Whatever).

The point is, these Vanity Shows are supposed to have a point.

This show, while nice and fine and an acceptable hour of shoes and handbags, had NO POINT.

What is the point of Shoe Shopping with Jane Treacy or What's In My Beauty Bag with Lisa or Patti? All just endless rehashes of the same old stuff to me. I guess I've been watching too much home shopping when I could almost give the product spiel word for word myself! Time for me to change the channel or get a life as the kids say!

I was pleasantly surprised by Jayne last night. I thought she looked and acted very professional. I personally think she does a much better job of presenting products when she is hosting alone. Does anyone know if this will be a weekly show?

I'm with the Nay's I don't like her and never did.

I really like Jayne Brown. I think she is very upbeat and has a good sense of humor.

Can't comment much on the show because I was watching something else.

I love Jayne Brown and her personality, and she did a great job, but I wasn't impressed with the products in her show. Maybe by the time her show was on I had overdosed on shoes and handbags. I'll definitely check out her next show though.

I like Jayne very much, she's one of my favorites and I was very much looking forward to the show, but I was disappointed by the line up of merchandise. I was hoping for a variety of things, not just shoes and bags.

It was like the old Jayne showed up. Far better than she is on the morning shows. Too bad she had to present the same old stuff that had been shown all day. I felt sorry for her.

Love Jayne Brown. She looked very nice. Happy that she has her own show.

I recorded the show and semi-watched it later.

I don't believe this is really all of Jayne's fault but I don't understand a host saying that she/he have been working on the lineup, items for the particular show and then mostly show things have been previously aired.

Jayne looked great! I was not impressed with the items in her show, however; a lot of the same old things.
