I do not.

I used to watch HGTV when Mike Holmes was on and Paul James' Gardening by the Yard and shows like This Old House. I'm not seeing much value in the new shows, they are soap operas...have you seen how many hosts are in the news and tabloids for fake this and fake that. I made a bit of a comentary on this tonight, so funny you asked this. I know we have to be on top of what our clients are huffing, but I limit it severely.

I don't. First, they are too "formulaic" for my taste so after a while it's "same old, same old." Second, there is nothing real about these "reality" shows and sets people up with unrealistic expectations as to what it costs, how long it takes, potential profit, etc.

Yes and yes.  Even though they are staged for TV.  The couple from Waco is opening a branch office in my town now.  So I'll get to see first-hand how real they are. 

Went to the Texas Flip and Move house site in Rhome and it is completely staged for TV.  The bidders are all paid actors.

Yes I do & I think they offer some great information & other things you just have to take with a grain of salt. I think that Joanna Gaines decorating is just too country for me & I'd die living in a house with that much 'cute'. Others it would be ok.

It's good for people with no vision.
