  1. Will Corin Nelson give Nate Berkus a personality transplant? That show is soooo boring!

  2. The only problem with the Nate Berkus show is Nate Berkus. He’s horrible. Just being a somewhat attractive guy and friend of O’s doesn’t cut it. And in all honesty, there is NOTHING he does that hasn’t been done before on any of the 3 dozen How-To shows on TLC, HGTV, A&E and so on and so on and so on. He is not unique enough

  3. No, I disagree. I just like him and would prefer to watch him tell me these things than some other professional. He’s a real person and I can feel it. That’s good television, to me.

  4. I’ve given the show many chances, but Nate is trying to think so outside the box, he’s in territory he has no credibility in. He should stick to interior designing, which was the whole idea of the show. This catch-all concept is sending the show to the crapper.

  6. I think the design-only thing isn’t tapping into everything he’s got, and he’s got it all day long. He’s got a quick wit, but never mean, which is rare these days. But how far from design would he want to go?

  9. Here’s hoping corin brings Nate outside the studio and back to his charming self…. She’s the best!

  11. I’m sure that Nate is a nice guy, but his show seems like it has lots of padding: it would be much more interesting if it were 15 minutes long and not a whole hour. The show should stick to interior design or decorating (whichever) and it would be refreshing to zero in on other interior designers besides Nate.
    Ouch!

  12. I’ve DVR-ed the show since it started and I have to agree that it’s not what I was expecting overall. For every 1 design segment that you can draw some ideas from, there’s a cooking segment, a d-list celebrity interview, sappy makeover story, a sponsored segment for product placement, and fashion nonsense. I typically fast forward thru 80% of the show.
    It’s produced as a lifestyle show for women more than any serious design show. I miss the old Christopher Lowell show years ago with real design methods and ideas and guests that were designers or architects with more perspectives.

  13. It’s the people who work behind the scenes that ruin this show. Hollywood is disgusted that Nate is the executive producer of The Help. Everyone knows how he “achieved” this “position. Insiders say this will hurt the film. Movie is bland. His name in the credits made the audience giggle.

  14. He is a nice enough guy, with some good ideas, but the show is BORING! I have tried to watch it, and always end up deleting it before I finish the show. There are way too many boring segments. There are a million shows out there showing you how to decorate, and this show is not unique.
