I may be in the minority, but I like it much better with the vendors/guests/reps calling in or on skype. There's much less foolery, chit chat, more info and in the allotted time, it's more professional. I wouldn't mind if Q continued to operate on this basis.

Re: LIKE VENDORS NOT WITH HOSTS

I have watched very little -  probably under 10 minutes a day in the last week or two or three.  It's mostly because I know I'm not buying right now, but even in those few minutes, I don't like the new format at all.  I applaud that they're doing it, but, if it's permanent, I'm pretty much out.

I find it boring.

@Imaoldhippie   IMHO, it's boring either way. This way, it just seems to move along faster.

Re: LIKE VENDORS NOT WITH HOSTS

read a few postings on this

 

I find it's much better without all the

hugging and kissing at the intro

host and rep contesting for air time

no social media person, which going forward could be done remotely anyway

much calmer presentations

 

in the majority of products that are Q owned there is no reason for a rep anyway.

@jackthebear   I wonder who pays the vendors' travel and hotel expenses? If it's Q, it would also save them a ton of money.

I agree!  It's boring to watch.

I like it this way.  Of course, I remember how it used to be years ago without the product reps.  I simply don't like the hugging, air-kissing, "I love you!" - come on, show the product and then leave.  JMO

unclear--- I think with the biggies it might be the Q, with the smaller reps, maybe they do.

 

there is/was a requirement that if you want to be a rep you need to live within a 2 hour drive of the Q. (used to be when i read it )

Kinda how I see it too, though I only watch shows with products I'm interested in. Do they still spend an inordinate amount of time on the TSV's?  That's what drives me crazy. But then again if it was something I'm interested in am sure I wouldn't mind as much.
