Trivia

The second host, Paige Davis, was let go at the end of 2004 so the show could go to an essentially "hostless" format, where the designers would present the redecorating. This was done as a cost cutting effort when ratings began to decline. This format continued for three years (2005, 2006, and 2007), but ratings suffered as a result. In 2008, Davis was brought back as host, and the use of neighbors was changed to family members, to try to recapture audiences who had abandoned the show. See more »

This is not "Learning"
21 August 2005 | by (Tampa, FL) – See all my reviews

TLC and the Discovery Channel used to only show their home and garden shows during the daytime on weekdays, then they would show their programs for intelligent people in the evening and on the weekends, this was tolerable. But Trading Spaces started a chain reaction that has basically destroyed the "Learning" factor in TLC.

I don't even understand why this show is so popular, all this show really is, is a few hippie abstract artists wasting a lot of money and materials to turn people's rooms into a bunch of hideous wasted space. Their remodeling jobs are a joke, they are so ugly, and such an inefficient use of the space. I don't understand why anyone would even want them to come near their house, let alone, invite them to remodel it.

To make things worse, in the end, what happens if the people whose homes they modified don't like what they did? They just wasted a lot of time, money, and materials, so a bunch of brain dead people can sit on their couch and watch a worthless TV show. They could do the same thing on a stupid TV set, and their viewers would never know the difference!

They might as well change the channel's name from "The Learning Channel" to something like HGTV, because TLC currently has nothing to do with learning. Maybe some day soon the owners of the Discovery networks will come to their senses and bring back their superior programming, because their viewers, or should I say "former viewers", really miss it. Thanks to this, all TLC stands for anymore is "Totally Lame Crap"
