HGTV’s ‘Love It or List It’ Just Hit a Series High in Ratings – With Its 201st Episode

Never peak too early

Hilary Farr and David Visentin on HGTV's "Love It or List It"

Love it. HGTV’s “Love It or List It” has set a new series high in ratings with its 201st episode.

The Monday, Dec. 30 episode of Hilary Farr and David Visentin’s competition earned a 0.92 rating among adults 25-54, according to Nielsen. That number counts three days of delayed viewing and is 61% better than what the time period earned, on average, across the prior six weeks.

It also made last week’s episode the No. 2 show on all of television in that particular demo. The 9 p.m. hour did even better among women of that age range (a 1.25 rating) and drew 3.4 million total viewers.

“Love It or List It,” which launched way back in 2008, follows designer Farr and real estate expert Visentin as they help fed-up families with lackluster houses make one important decision: are you going to love it or list it? The titular ultimatum is a rallying cry for homeowners ready to make a change — either by staying in their existing home that Farr remodels to accommodate their lengthy wish list or by opting for a new home that Visentin finds to better meets the needs of the family.

The series is the No. 2 most-streamed show on HGTV Go.

“Love It or List It” airs Mondays at 9/8c on HGTV.
