TSV's ~ why not start at 7 a.m. EST

TSV reps (brand-ambassadors) are presenting all day and are noticeably exhausted.  The Q hosts could present the item without the reps at the "end of day" hours.  I noticed some TSV reps are now coming into the studio again!

 

And the east coast misses out at midnight (especially on popular clothing lines).  In the early hours, sizes or colors are gone. 

 

Still can be called 'today's special value'...not have to be presented 24 hours.  Moreover, I noticed a few TSV's are avail. for three days on .com so why continue the ‘all one day’ concept.  I miss the days when TSV’s had free shipping too.

@MarcyG72   Somebody always lets left out no matter what time the presentation starts.  Further, unless the research has changed drastically, everyone who works a swing-shift job might work some shifts at less than top form.  

 

I believe there are no perfect times -  just times that fit all the pieces a scheduler has to satisfy. Definitely not a job I ever wanted!

Now that we know what the TSV will be days before in almost all cases, I don't think it really matters what time it officially starts as we can purchase them prior to their on air premier. Just go to Todays Special Value and Deals and you can see past TSV's as well as future TSV's.

@Desertdi    I knew my friends on the west coast and on mountain time would then suffer as 'we' east coasters have since the inception of the TSV.    As someone posted earlier, there is no perfect solution.  

 

If I were a vendor and had to present from midnight and then for another 20+ hrs., I would look for another job. ;-)

@MarcyG72     I would think NOON EASTERN....might be a more convenient hour for everyone.....
