Qurate has finally confirmed how many layoffs there were last month. The number had been reported as an "I heard" sort of thing.

But the company has confirmed that (approximately) 450 people were "separated."

what's the point of David constantly picking away at that salmon over and over

 

Since he hates salmon, he’s probably relieved he doesn’t have to taste it. Pre-pandemic, after Mary D had moved on from his sidekick role, salmon was the TSV. They brought her into ITKWD just to do the TSV presentations. David explained it by saying something like salmon isn’t his favorite food so Mary would do it justice. If he could choke down Nutrisystem, surely he could’ve endured a few bites of salmon.

Reminds me of when Dan Hughes was selling lobster a few years ago.  He kept going like a pro, even when saying the lobster smelled great but he couldn't taste any of it because of his shellfish allergy.  Now there's a legit reason not to sample something on-air.

Thursday is all Fall decor on the Q!  

I thought it was really really interesting when watching a short video of Ant cooking sausage and potatoes and she said she uses the Temptations baking dish as her food tastes better in it!  She said she was not endorsing the line but her food actually tastes better cooking in it!!  Not sure what to think?

I saw that video. To think they let Ant go. She's the host who actually has QVC items, uses them, and says nice things about them. On a side note, I didn't think she was going to get all those potatoes, peppers, and sausage in that baking dish. She did. 

I like the looks of the Temptations old world, but I don't own any. The bad reviews kept me from buying.

just looked so pointless and wasteful to see that, and I know its just for sales 

there must be a better way 

not spending an hour at a time might work

Valerie's truck has more detail but I don't like the 2 colors she has.

Fred Sanford's truck is classic. I bet you are hearing that theme song now.

Where to begin with this screenshot? First off, the OAP’s dining room appears to have been taken over by alien life forms, from the TSV spheres to the unfortunate hanging lights that look like jaws ready to chomp down on something. We’ve got a Boofetti-like candle holder on the table. And the one she’s presenting is supposed to be a candy corn. It is, but it isn’t. It looks more like a traffic cone or booster rocket. What a hot mess.

The spheres look a little too much like coronaviruses for my tastes. On the right, we have your covid-19 coronavirus. Behind Budget Boofetti is your spring cold coronavirus; it's green. The black one is obviously for  pesky winter colds; its coloring reminiscent of the cold, dark days.

The tsv looks cheap and reminds me of tumbleweed. I could just picture one strong gust of wind and these spheres are tumbling down your street and end up on your neighbor's lawn a few houses down!

LOL Now I'm going to look at those candies as "traffic corn". 

Another poster mentioned the floral spheres resemblance to covid-19 images. I agree. They keep coming back, too. Several callers raved about them and already have several colors. It's a horror movie. Day of the Virus Spheres.

Just yesterday morning the news reported that Brach's has a new candy mix. It's Turkey Dinner flavored candy corn. 

From Brach's: "The Turkey Candy Corn mix features a medley of six familiar flavors to the American Thanksgiving dinner spread: Roasted turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing, green beans, ginger glazed carrots, and, for dessert, sweet potato pie. Of course, the multi-hued pieces are color-coded to match their respective dish."

using the split screen on the models , lets us see the products in much better detail than previously, when one model was upstage and the others in the back, now 3 things are shown at the same time, much better

between the mail service being the subject of a conflict and Q's slow return process I would be cautious of ordering and returning with them right now.

 

my resell shipments are taking 2 days and more to reach their buyer and this is with priority mail

I'd try the M&M's pumpkin pie. 

The reporter telling us about the turkey dinner candy corn said he tried all of the flavors except for the green beans. No candy should taste like green beans. He did say he sort of liked the cranberry since it was fruit flavored. 

Candace Cameron Bure Inspirational T-Shirts $34.98. It's a t-shirt. I can already buy a comparable shirt with inspiring messages for much less. 

QVC keeps selling computers but they don't think we use them to shop online on Amazon.

....whatever happened to the H by Halston brand and Cameron Silver's relationship to it?

I don't watch most weekdays 6-6...but I haven't seen it on air in ages. Is it still around just not a darling brand?

I don't see Joan Rivers brand as much. And I thought the Louis Del Olio brand was going to continue, just not with him on air, but another OAP. What happened with that?

I know I may miss presentations by not watching the morning fashion blocks. But Lord knows I see enough Logo, Isaac and Graver, D&C, Cuddl Duds at other times.

So what's happen to other other brands I mentioned?

(It's like what happened with the Cooks Essentials brand in the kitchen category. IF they haven't dropped it. They certainly are not promoting or pushing it.)

I'm only one viewer, of course. But I'd rather see anything in the JR or LDO line than anything by Logo. Yet Logo is on every damned Monday night, and on Fri and Sat apparel shows also.  It's like Logo and Isaac (and Cuddl Dubs for a while there) are the clothing brands they're forcing down our throats.

I just wish I could see more of the brands I prefer to see...than the brands that are an instant click away. I can't watch Logo for more than five seconds. Isaac, I might give 10 minutes.  And then it's click...because all he can say is an item "is everything." Hell, I'd rather see Quaker Factory.

At least the Joan Rivers and Louis Del Olio presentations have a level of discourse that's not insultingly banal.
