I've tried to figure this out but my tiny brain apparently cannot. What does it mean to " shop the show backwards" or however it is phrased? I've heard this a couple of times and I do not know what this means. Can anyone tell me?

Re: "Shop the show backwards"?

Another favorite term of Jane Treacy's. I'm guessing it means that, when an item is shown that would work back with something already shown, you could go online and revisit that item. Sort of like "circling back".

I don't like that phrase either. JT started it and uses it constantly.

I think what she's trying say is just go back and purchase things from the beginning of the show even after it's over.  

Havent we always done this without her telling us to lol.🌸

I have heard a few hosts using this term since JT started it.   Instead of just saying look at "Items Recently on air", they say shop backwards.

It's not you, so please don't feel that way.  It's a weird phrase to say.🌸

Re: "Shop the show backwards"?

Maybe Jane RT came up with the term, but Quarate has a team of marketing geniuses paid to come up with some of the phrases and lingo the hosts repeat like trained parrots.  Why not just say, go to QVC.com and click the Watch tab at the top of the page to view "items recently on air"?  That way viewers who may not know are told how they can shop the show backwards.
