Ali Carr is getting her first TSV tonight. I'm on the west coast, so I've been exposed to her quite a bit. Every other word out of her mouth is RIGHT??? So annoying.

I have a hard time listening to Ali.  Technically she's a good host and gives  adequate info, but the way she talks makes my brain hurt!  She says a couple of words...stops a second......says more words....stops a second.......for me, it's as difficult to listen to as someone who sounds like they're on speed (Blabby or Kerstin).

I don't particularly care for Ali either.  I can't quite explain it, but she seems too theatrical or actressy (but not in the way Jane is.)

I notice this most when she is with David and Dan:  just too scripted and coy.

Coy is a perfect word for Ali. Maybe that’s why her face bothers me. I think she has a very, very subtle coy and smug facial expression.

I believe we're getting "bonus" D&C shows tomorrow with "Garolyn".   Oy.   

People (Gary in particular), tragic events (sinking of the Titanic) and even inanimate objects (Nutsy), all fall prey to Carolyn's twisted sense of humor.

I'm just gonna say it:  I always liked Mary Beth - the simplicity, but could relate.  I was just watching her again - something's wrong.. It's almost like she is at her first debut.  I know other people have noticed it.  I am not ragging on her. I think she has reached her expiration date.  Again, she seems like such a nice person.

Oh, wow.  So much for “empty nesting.”  Very generous of them.    I wonder if the pandemic is the reason?  (Loss of jobs or hours.)

Or kids may be working, but not getting paid enough to afford an apartment.

If you have Q2, she often does the 11 a.m. hour or an hour or two in the 1-3 p.m. slot in addition to the noon Q show.

I think they all are. At one point a couple of years ago (definitely pre-pandemic), MB said that her son, daughter-in-law and their kids (three kids now, I think) were moving in with her, and that a niece was living with her also. That's six extra people - I wonder who the other four are? Maybe more of her kids. No wonder MB seems distracted in her presentations! Her household must be chaos all the time.

This isn't the best image, but caught a few minutes of Carolyn doing the Anybody hour this afternoon.  IMHO she actually looked 'current' for once.  She was wearing a three piece set of tank, jacket & camo crop (which were ankle pants on her) the outfit were quite flattering.

Nothing else changed; just as the tiger can't can't change its stripes, it was still Carolyn.  She had to ruin things by opening her mouth.   She kept calling the Anybody OAP (Amol) "Honey", (a word that grates on me!)  & seemed disappointed that she'd been paired with a model I'd not seen before that she couldn't size shame, since the model wore a large. (Just like Carolyn does....yeah, right)

Watching Amy on "Your Style Live Clearance" on Q2.  I can't watch her too long, she talks way too fast (when I can understand her), she sound like The Chipmunks on speed!  Another Q host who feels she has to share by telling us what she did last night.

She said she thought it would be "fun" last night to sit by their outside fireplace (right, we've all got one right?).  She couldn't understand why no one in her family wanted to join her in toasting marshmallows & making s'mores.  Hmm Amy, could the fact that it's 90°+ & July have anything to do with that????  Do these hosts even care that their "stories" make them sound like idiots/deluded?

While I'm on my rant box, if I hear her, Kirsten or Jen Coffey whine about their "problem" areas, I feel like throwing stuff at the TV!  I like my TV too much though, better idea is just to change the channel....

Yep, I'm out Amy now is wearing a ridiculous, oversized tunic top, that looks like a dress on her.  She quite fancies herself in it...ugh!

P.S: Do you know that they can't get anymore of these items this year?????

In general I like her, though I have noticed in more recent viewings that her fauxthusiasm has amped up a bit.  I mean, I wouldn't want a host to be blase', but there is an acceptable happy medium that seems difficult to find.  Maybe casual conversation doesn't sell product, but this infomercial-like orgasmic reaction to every.damn.thing doesn't do it for me.  I'd rather have the casual, conversational demeanor any time.

Blabby selling the heck out of the older model of the Bissell Crosswave.  Bragging about the colours that are unique to QVC only & the special price of $196.65.  She has mentioned her daughter's kittens three times in the first six minutes of the presentation.

Bissell came out with a newer cordless model of the Crosswave at the end of last year.  I believe I paid $185 for mine.  So much for the Q selling the "latest" model of things.  Obviously Bissell must of had a bunch left that they sold to.QVC.

Another mention of kitties, that makes four times.  

Time for me to go to bed, although Blabby keeps telling me there's only 1400 left of the Crosswave in Mambo Red and they're going to sell out before tomorrow morning. They're taking a call from Natalie (in the green room no doubt), who is raving about her Crosswave & how it's the best thing she ever bought!

Kitty count now up to five!!!

I woke up and briefly tuned into Blabby's presentation of the Bissell vacuum cleaner.

No Jane, a vacuum cleaner isn't exciting.  No, we shouldn't be gifting them to our school teachers because kids will be back in school causing a mess.  No, we shouldn't stock up now for Christmas and Hanukkah gifts.

There is an air of desperation to her presentation, and her numerous gift suggestions is just grasping at straws.

I hope the new CEO views video clips of the on-air talent and cleans house.

Most of the hosts need refresher courses on selling. The pitch that really irks me is, "When I was in [XYZ situation], this [XYZ product] would've been great/helpful"

First of all, as the potential buyer I don't care how it would've been beneficial to a host. Either you have personal experience with the product or you don't.

Oh yes he does.  HE IS SO UNHEALTHY LOOKING, and has labored breathing.  You can hear it all the time.  He is a perfect example of someone that is going to have heath issues because of their weight, lack of exercise and stress.

His "Weatherman" hair style has always been TOO much for me.  That greased down, dies black look.  Not good.

Gifter to their kid's teacher:  Here's a vacuum you can use in your classroom since we know the kids will be causing a mess!

Teacher:  So you're saying my classroom is a pig sty?  Your child wasn't in my classroom last year.  Did you ask around?  Look through the window?  Don't realize the janitor's closet is just down the hall?

I guess we'll see how the TSV sells throughout the day, but surely there comes a point when it gets harder to sell them because they've hit vacuum overload for the year.
