Say It Ain't So!

Part of the Winning Design by Season One's Matt Lorenz

A little birdie just told me that Top Design has not been renewed by Bravo for a third season due to disappointing ratings. Can anyone confirm this? I pretty much watch Bravo's entire lineup, but Top Design was among my favorite shows on the network. Quite frankly, I think the talent on Top Design is of an entirely different caliber, then say, HGTV's Design Star. I really hope this isn't true! First Project Runway and now Top Design...


Part of Nathan Thomas' Winning Design in Season Two

Eddie Ross is quite possibly the biggest "unofficial" winner to come from Top Design. He has become incredibly popular since the show and has an insane following on his fabulous blog!

Oh no, I really hope your little bird is wrong!!! That would be so so so disappointing. Top Design was definitely my favorite show on Bravo, and yes, it is head and shoulders above anything on HGTV. And you are right about Eddie being the big winner, for sure. (I thought he should have won anyway).

Oh no I hope this isn't true. This is the first I've heard of it. That would be so sad!

So true! HGTV doesn't compare to the talent on Top Design.
Hope it gets renewed.

I hope this is false, I would be so sad- it was one of my favorites!!

Lucinda said...

I will be REALLY bummed if this is true! How will I get my weekly Jonathan Adler dose? Kelly's outfits and hair styles? Horror!

Donna said...

We dont have this show in New Zealand but I'm concerned you mentioned Project Runway!!!! We are way behind the US in seasons I guess but I hang out for my Friday night fix at the moment...

Oh no!! I hope this is NOT true!!

Top Design is a million times better than Design Star. I would be sad if it's over.

Tamstyles said...

WHAT!!!!! This is a dam shame...I am tired of this!

Caroline said...

Bummer!! I agree that HGTV's Design Star is not as good a show.

Blueprint Bliss said...

One of my best friend's sisters is one of the producers for the next season of Top Design- and word on the street is that another network is picking them up... and that it should air in June. That's what a little birdy told me... so I hope it's true!

Things That Inspire said...

I love Top Design - and you would think that the design industry needs all the help it can get these days!

Congrats on the WP Blog Watch this week!

Sheri said...

I really hope this isn't true! I will be waiting for further news now. :(

Carolina Eclectic said...

This is TERRIBLE! The only design show worth watching anymore. How much more can we take?

Jill said...

I hope Blueprint Bliss is right. It's one of my favorites as well. Top Design is to Design Star as Top Chef is to Hell's Kitchen.

Yoli said...

NO! Project Runway is gone?!!!!

Paloma {La Dolce Vita} said...

Yoli, Project Runway is moving to Lifetime (ick!) and Bravo is attempting to replace it with a new show called "The Fashion Show" hosted by Isaac Mizrahi and Kelly Rowland from Destiny's Child.

Haven and Home said...

Oh no! I agree with the talent level being better. I loved that show!
