Precisely the reason I stopped watching years ago...and only shop online. “cotton-span” lazy-English finally made me permanently hit the mute button. Fri-yay didn’t help either!

Re: Vocabulary for show hosts to eliminate in 2020

This is almost the same as previous forums on this very subject...there are just new words to add to the very long list. Fri-yay. Where the heck did that come from? It does not good to complain....they will still take viewers on “ tours” of handbags, etc.....😬

Along with curvation and fabrication which a few others have listed, I will add "elastication." Adding "ation" to the ends of words is starting to sound pretentious and overdone.

Elastication (elasticated) is a real word used in British English. They don't say something has an elasticized waistband, for example; they say elasticated. (Here's an actual description from QVC UK for a pair of IM pants: "These ankle-length trousers by Isaac Mizrahi Live feature a curved hemline and an elasticated waistline.") I think I've mostly heard Isaac's rep (whose name is escaping me at the moment, but who is British) use that term.
