    On Q2 they're rerunning yesterday's Gourmet Holiday. $89.50 for 4 pounds of popcorn shrimp, Original or Buffalo-flavored (M63038). They're pushing that the shrimp have very little breading, which hopefully is the case because being popcorn shrimp they're already tiny. That price is absolutely insane. While I have no idea if Buffalo-flavored (or spicy) popcorn shrimp is available at your average grocery store, I know I could get the same amount of regular popcorn shrimp for $40 (or less if it's on sale).

    David is happily happy with an America's Test Kitchen "Ultimate Burger" cookbook. Julia Collin Davison knows the happy dance by now.

    Over on Evine, could someone rearrange the monitors so Sonia Bitton isn't spending 90% of her time looking up and to her right? She rarely looks into the camera; at this point she probably won't change that habit.

    How awful. Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris is going up in flames, and rapidly. The spire was gone in less than an hour.

    Edit. The position of those stripes is terrible unless you want you and others to think you have a larger backside than you actually have.

    Um. Model in the middle looks OK.

    Meanwhile, on Q2 in a rerun, fake flowers in vases or ceramic pots by Peony seem to be a bit of a ripoff.

    It seems to be selling pretty well; they had 16,800 to go around between Wednesday and today and by the end of David's show they had sold over 2/3 of them. Of course, David was also adding at times that people who immediately order will get it "in plenty of time" for Memorial Day. But that's definitely some leeway. Looks like they'll be able to have that last hour to sell some more starting at 8 p.m., since the bad weather is far enough south and west.

    Pretty efficient: Cathy Pedrayes' last day at Q was on the 4th. Her house is not only already on the market, there was an open house today.

    They must be sending the smoker/grill TSV out by horse and buggy, because if you order immediately they're guaranteeing it will arrive by Memorial Day. Advance orders won't (they won't ship until May 24). (Yes, I know this is pretty much a CYA and especially if they're shipping grills to Hawaii, Alaska, USVI, PR, and Guam.)

    I think it's to keep BiQ in the viewers' consciousness because sometime in the next few months they are going to bring it back as a channel that is streamed online.

    Besides being DV's sidekick on Wednesdays and Sundays she is usually over on Q2 the rest of the time and she will present non-food/cooking things. For example, she does 3 hours on Mondays on Q2, 2 of them her cooking show and the last hour a non-cooking/food product.

    QVC must spend a gazillion dollars buying stuff from the local Wegmans.

    I will correct my comment on days of the week: On main Q you can find kitchen shows on Sundays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, and on Q2 on Mondays, Fridays, and Saturdays. David's home show on Thursdays occasionally has kitchen stuff. I'll edit my earlier post but just wanted to clarify since you responded to it.

    Not surprised that they're giving Chris P. some backup. There are now kitchen/food shows on main Q and Q2 five days a week, and David's Thursday show will have kitchen stuff too, so pretty much every day except Tuesday. LnL is usually presented several days a week, plus as a TSV or Q2 deal every once in a while. Look what happened with Meredith: she usually only had the backup appear on the overnights or when she was away for whatever reason, and now that she's gone there are three Cook's Essentials OAPs.

    The model's left leg is awful! Terrible! An embarrassment! In actuality, that leg is fine. My legs are the paler side of pale.. I can't tan and I'll keep the pantyhose business going. Why in the ever loving thingamajig is the left leg on that model considered to be terrible? Yes, for shopping channel purposes, but still....

    Sure he can. Hope he has a good accountant for the tax thingy, though.

    At the beginning of his time today he mentioned he's nearly at 30 completed years at Q. I'm in the camp he'll retire when he reaches that landmark.

    Let us demonstrate horrible seamwork! Even showing a black shirt won't cover it up! (Edit: The first photo is of Kerstin)

    I got weepy too. I'm the weepy type. I think it's great they were able to get publicity for the school/farm and its goals, it means a lot to Melissa and her family and everyone else there, and it was obviously going to be a sellout, but when the put the real bowl up against the copy and tapped them it was easy to tell the copy was a cheap replica. I'm sure, though, there will be more people contacting the farm to buy the real things.

    Do you mean the Limonecello and Tiramisu cakes they just showed? The number of preservatives are actually quite small and there's a lot of pasteurization going on. There's a link to the ingredients under "Nutrition Facts." Now those multi-colored layer cakes they've been showing lately? Preservative City.

    Evine: Be Good

    This is just speculation on my part, but maybe the split from Qurate, and it certainly appears to be that he has or is splitting from them, was amicable and he agreed to appear through December on Q/HSN in exchange for either a waiver of the non-compete or a much shorter one? Plus both sides agreed to keep things quiet? Or perhaps there was a decision from one side or both not to renew the contract? This would be unlike the split with Joy Mangano, which involved shutting down an entire company and the related regulatory filings, which really can't be kept quiet.

    Evine: Be Good

    While Paula and Kimberley Wells were gushing over the fact he was there and dropping large hints about him perhaps joining Evine, he was a bit more careful (maybe they're still working on the fine print?). As he phrased it, "I look forward to coming here more often. They're giving us a tour of the place today." He also said that his factory is just a few minutes from Evine. It is a MN-based company. HSN and Q both have My Pillow products (and he's appeared on both channels); nothing on clearance so far.
