QVC - You Cured My Addiction

I used to watch QVC and QVC2 ALL the time. Now, I am lucky to even watch one hour per week. The removal of Q2 live programming is understood if you don't have enough merchandise to peddle during the pandemic.   But is it necessary to constantly repeat the same shows on Q2 throughout the day?  Today, Down Home with David (3 hour show) was scheduled four times. Fri*yay with Jane & David (3 hour show) was scheduled twice. That is 18 hours of David!  On Sunday, Fri*yay with Jane & David is scheduled four times and then there is the repeat of In the Kitchen with David (3 hour show) in the evening. That's 15 hours of David tomorrow!  The only time I order anymore is if I receive a TSV email that's interesting. There is no variety anymore!

Re: QVC - You Cured My Addiction

QVC has become insufferable to watch due to repeative programming and obnoxious hosts.  There are way too many of these painfully boring "beauty" days like today.  Next week there will be Josie Maran Day which will be hours of pure torture, if you watch.  HSN is even worse with innumerable beauty days.  I don't buy over-priced cosmetic products on TV.

 

At least Q2 used to be a respite from the dullness of the main channel,when there was live programming.  Now I watch maybe one Denim & Co. show a week, period.

Me too.  I used to have it on Saturdays while I was doing things around the house.  It was nice to have a distraction while cleaning or clearing out the file cabinet.  I haven't had it on at all today and I sort of like the silence.

I never watch any of the channels except Valerie's shows, I just look at items I am interested in on Q website, and buy what I want, the staples I use over and over.

I still love the Q and place orders,  but I don't watch it or have it on in the background like I did years ago.   I miss those Q days.

Between the QVC layoffs/cutbacks, covid and Amazon, QVC is starting to struggle a LOT.  Plus I have niticed that the quaility of the merch has gone way down, and expect and extra 3-7 days on delivery times.

IMO QVC is an addiction for many people.  Unless I'm interested in what's being sold, I do not watch.  Certainly not "for company" or "entertainment."

Re: QVC - You Cured My Addiction

I only watch SG show Thursday morning & D&C show Tuesday morning. That’s it, and I think I watch those mainly out of habit. I hardly ever order anything, my main gripe is paying for shipping. I used to have Q on a lot and always watched the TSV kickoff.
There are too many hosts I can’t watch or listen to, too many repetitive shows.
