SAY WHAT??????  What the heck are you talking about?

Yes.  I don't like hearing that either.  And while I'm complaining, why in the world do some hosts say "ALSO TOO ...."   Isn't one of those words sufficient to get the point across?  Why use them together?

Thank you @Santorini! I was JUST getting ready to add that myself, so I am glad that I am not the only one who notices that. The head of our corporate university used to say that ALL THE TIME and it made me crazy! I haven't heard it too often lately on QVC, but it seems that one of the morning hosts may have used it.

Hi, Lisa.  Yes, I do hear it more from the HSN group.  Suzanne Runyan says it all the time. I guess they like repeating themselves.  They probably like to walk stroll their dog canine prior to before dinner supper instead of rather than afterward. Smiley Happy

Sorry if I wrote this in the wrong community. I thank all who explained what this term means. I really did a double take when I had heard it. Each to their own, thanks again.

@Jinlei - For what it's worth, I thought it was fine for you to comment about your concern here since you heard the phrase on Gourmet Holiday.

Honestly, with so many things going on in yhe world, I just don't have the time or energy to be bothered by phrases TV hosts use.

I've heard Shawn say it. She's the queen of sayings. That and  "Sidebar!"

My biggest pet peeve is when they say something is "stinkin' cute".  They say it a lot in the Temptations presentations.  Tara, David, Lisa (from TT) and others use that expression way too much. So does Shawn.  An item can be "cute", but "stinkin' cute"?  No.
