I also want to know where Kim Myles is. HGTV is not responsive to the questions of faithful viewers. We watch the shows and support them. Since America voted for Kim, we have a right to know why her show is no longer on TV.

I called hgtv corporate to ask why Kim was no longer on and got no information. At the time I also complained about lack of design shows on the network. There seems to be nothing but house hunting shows on so I don't watch hgtv much anymore.

Yes house hunters is their no.1 show. So many networks are struggling w ratings. The design shows are primary on sat nights. Sad cuz although I enjoy house hunters I prefer design shows.

I just saw the new Design Star winner and Kim Myles was not in the group back stage as part of the HGTV to welcome Meg. So what's up? I use to catch Kim's show really early in the morning (a la 6:00 am) but it's not on anymore. I reall miss her show. I love her design

WHAT HAPPENED?

I am sick of nighttime HGTV. I don't want to buy a house, I want to decorate it.

I feel the same way about Vern Yip...his show has been cancelled so why are we still seeing him on HGTV? I remember one bedroom he designed and everything was this hideous brown color all he needed to do was wrap it in plastic and it would look like a big Kraft Carmel.

I too miss Kim Myles! You people dont know a good thing when you have it! Kim was one of your best! Bring her back! Enough of the Canadian hosts with their daisies & doilies. We want to see real color and hosts that we can relate to!

Thank you for posting your comment requesting information about the cancellation of Kim Myles by HGTV. I sent several messages to HGTV asking the same question but received no reply. From what I have been able to determine, after Kim won as "Design Star" by a fair majority vote from people like us, the supporters of the man who achieved second place were very displeased and began a well-organized and rather hateful campaign to have her little show removed from the air. Unfortunately, HGTV gave in to this pressure and thereby lost not only a talented designer who is a fantastic human being, but also lost the loyal viewership of people like us. By the way, isn't it interesting that Todd Davis- the man who came in second- now (as of January,2012) has his own show on HGTV? We can only pray that Kim will find another successful outlet for her creativity. God bless you, Kim, wherever you are.

Dear Marsha, I don't blame Kim for not appearing, after the terrible way she was treated by HGTV.Putting Kim's show on six o'clock in the morning, on different mornings, was no accident. HGTV decided to cancel her and used this means to help achieve their goal.

I wish that you were an executive of programming at HGTV. You have more sense than they do! Thanks for your support for a great young designer and a great human being.

Dear Sharon, I want you to know that I also tried several times to contact the "authorities" at HGTV, without success. It seems that they are totally closed off to the opinions of viewers like us, so we should simply stop supporting HGTV. I have not watched it for over a year. That is really the only way that people like you and me can express our feelings toward this network.

So love Kim Myles! Miss her so much. She is such a great designer and it's a shame that one of the only African American designers has been taken off the air. Please bring her back!

HGTV's ratings are low because their programmers are overpaid. People are sick of watching the canadian produced shows (nothing against any race or nationality), which must be cheap or there would not be 4-5 hours of house hunters on EVERYDAY!! Obviously they need new people to plan the programming.
Genevieve (love the personality)sucks as a designer which is probably why HGTV got her for cheap. She was not very good on TLC and used her feminine appeal to appease the men who make decisions. Laurie and many of the others were way better designers!! Candice is the best thing they have on their line-up but they do not broadcast her show regularly. Why don't they ask us who we would like to see to tune back in? I have stopped watching them as as much as well. If TLC and A&E are smart they would fill the void!! I love david but what happened to all of the other winners?? I see two runner-ups regularly, Sparkle and Todd but, where are THE WINNERS?? So so so SAD HGTV!!!
