I want David Back

I liked the show when it had both Hilary and David, there was an entertaining competition, This is now lost. Now that it is just Hilary being bossy and pushy, there is no longer any entertainment. Please put them back together - together they make the show entertaining, I will stop watching id David doesn't return ! I am not a kid, and found it entertaining.

New Contractor Disrespectful towards Female Host

I do not care for the new contractor. He does not have a team member attitude. He seems to have a disrespectful additude towards the Host( a woman). She's speaking and he interrupts her, his tone of voice and body language is "your a woman and you don't know what you're talking about", and "what you're asking me to do is ridiculous". He interrupts her and speaks in a "Downing tone" to her, (like she's a stupid woman) I might stop watching the show.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (6 ):
Kids say (5 ):

The fun series addresses some of the emotional and financial challenges homeowners face when making renovation and home-buying decisions. Love It or List It also highlights the kinds of things that people must factor in when upgrading a home, and offers some perspective on how these renovations can factor into purchasing a more desirable one later.

Some of the interactions between the hosts and the homeowners seem rehearsed, especially when they are touring differing homes. Furthermore, some of the homeowners' expectations seem a little irrational to be real. Folks interested in real estate and renovation may find it interesting, but kids won't find much here.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
