Then the show(s) or items or lines will go away. 

 

QVC tracks every little thing, colors selling, words that are working etc.  The producer is talking non-stop in their ear what to say and push.

 

They have stats on which items or shows are not moving.  They know exactly how many items in each category they have sold.

@LaneysmomHe is scheduled because he sells.  Have you forgotten that this is a TV Shopping Channel?  This isn't entertainment.  This is sales of products.  You always have the option of voting with your remote.

And yet their financial results are as stale as their programming....(and I DO flip the channel).....

It is absolutely designed to be entertaining.  That is a big part of the sellling.

 

If viewers get annoyed or sick of something, or it's boring, they don't watch.  And then, products don't get sold.

Of course the shows and programming are designed to be entertainment, at least in the minds of Q executives.

 

I'm just surprised at how many posters haven't figured that out and still say "It's just a shopping channel".

 

Almost every executive in the ivory tower will disagree with that.

Re: Enough is Enough....IDKWD

Isn't that what Q2 & Q3 are supposed to be -- viewing & shopping alternatives when the main channel does not interest you?

 

I like David very much, but I'll switch on any of the hosts if Q2 offers a better alternative to hold my interest in shopping.  [Q3 is useless for me since it's all pre-recorded and I'm not playing guessing games on what's still available or not.]  But I find myself enjoying watching Q2 more & more these days.

Too bad Ming Tsai isn't on any more - I enjoyed him.  And, is IDKWD a typo, or is it "I Don't Know [What Colors Are Left] With David?"

Down Home is a new show.  I guess they are trying new programming.  I haven't seen it yet but I imagine, if he isn't selling on that show..it will go. 

 

David's sales levels must be high enough where they feel to boost the financials, they should expand what is working.

 

Only time will tell.
