Knitters unite!
I am huge Knitty Gritty fan (if it wasn't for her show, I would have never found out about Amy's site). I just read on her blog (http://vickiehowell.blogspot.com/ - Thursday, June 21 and it looks like she and other crafty shows may not have new shows in 2008 because of their Nielson ratings. Personally, I WANT to see new shows as well as the reruns. What can we do? I know if we all work together, we can do something. Go to her site and read what she has to say. Let me know what you think. Knitters of the world unite!

Hmmm, I just discovered this show and I am a huge fan so I would hate to not see any new shows. How about writing to the network? What if we all decided (all the KH'ers) to send them letters/emails letting them know the huge fan base? That would seem like a good start.

They'd probably have better ratings if they put it on a channel everyone could get or at a decent time. It's on HGTV here.... but at 6 a.m..

I was really bummed when I read that as well. Apparently, according to the ratings, most DIY viewers are men who watch the home improvement shows... although personally I've never met a man who watches DIY, I suppose they are out there.

Agreed - if it was on HGTV in the afternoon it would probably do better. DIY is like channel 240 here lol. If I hadn't been actively searching for it, I never would have even looked that high.

debinoz, we get both HGTV & DIY. 6:00AM is way too early for me as well (DVR to the rescue). It's a great show and it would be a waste to lose it.

This same thing happened to Carol Duvall Show and Simply quilts on HGTV. We had a write in campain to try and get them to make more shows, but they went to DIY (I don't get that channel), and decided to just show reruns.
I think that the world is ready for a craft channel!!!!!
