Sometimes the funniest things happen on live TV. The Q is no exception.  Several years ago I was watching Leah's show. She took a call from a lady and all was going well until . . . someone in the lady's household interrupted her. She screamed at the top of her voice, "I'm on the f***ing telephone." Leah was stunned. She said, "I'll let you go take care of whatever is happening" and then the call was disconnected.  Susan Graver was the next vendor on air. She came out and mentioned the incident and then couldn't control her laughter. I started laughing out loud with her. I felt so bad for Leah, but it was funny!

Re: Laughable Moments on QVC

@On It My sister told me about this: Many years ago it was nightime here on the west coast, computers or laptops were being sold and the host was taking calls.

 

One call from an obviously elderly man was fine until he said "I mostly use it to watch porn." Call ended real fast.

A more recent example of funny on air incidents was not that long ago. Jennifer and Susan were doing their show when Pebbles was shown on her back with her legs in the air. Jen asked what's wrong with her. Susan replied she was sleeping. The presentation moved along until time for a promo. When the show resumed Jennifer explained the camera had stayed on and the staff was surrounding the monitors to watch Pebbles. They were laughing and enjoying the moment.

@On It Good old Rosalie from South Jersey! A classic! It always gets recommended to me on YouTube and I watch it everytime. Never gets old! The comment section on there is hilarious.

@On It,

I remember hearing about that!

It is funny, but then kinda sad also.

Then I start wondering what that household is like-yikes!

Re: Laughable Moments on QVC

My favorite moment was years ago with Kathy Levine.  Never known for her prowess in the kitchen, she was demonstrating a bread making machine late one night.  She carefully added all the ingredients in order, closed the machine and turned it on.  Then we heard the most awful loud banging noise that ever came from a kitchen.  Sounded like a jet fighter taking off.  The look of horror on Kathy's face was priceless.  I laughed until tears rolled down my face.  She quickly turned it off and of course make a few choice comments.

Albany and a vendor were demonstrating something with stretchability. They were behind a waist high desk or prop of some kind. Each was pulling on an end to show how far it would stretch. Albany suddenly disappeared from sight. Whatever it was slipped out of her hands and down she went.....probably on her butt.

 

She popped back up and laughed about it. I took a beating on here for saying it was funny.

Youtube when Mike Rowe was a host for QVC.  You will see why they never let him off the midnight shift.

Re: Laughable Moments on QVC

I think the Q's funniest moment came when Mike Rowe was a host.  He was so irreverent, he made every presentation hysterically funny.  He surely didn't take QVC seriously.  Watch some of his old videos on YouTube.
