What ever happened to all of the great party shows?

I used to watch these fantastic and inspiring party planning shows on TV. The episodes used really pile up on the old Tivo. Anyways, the shows I was obsessed with were "Party Planner with David Tutera " Party Girl" hosted by Cathy Riva ( posted a favorite episode from her show, check it out HERE ) and my favorite "The Big Party Plan Off". I miss them! There was also a show called "Top This Party" that would be on at really random times, that I didn't like as much but, without any other party TV to watch had to do. Did anyone happen to catch the one and only season of "Party Monsters: Cabo" on E ? Why are these shows not catching on? Isn't anyone else amused and obsessed like I am with entertaining and party planning??

Please let me know if there are any new entertaining shows out there. (other than MILLIONS of wedding shows)


  1. I can only sympathize with you. I love, and miss those party shows also. I don't particularly care for the "competition" type shows but David Tutera and Cathy Reva were great. I also remember a show about 11 years ago that played on HGTV called "Party At Home" and it was good for showing different ideas. Ohhhh, and what about "Weekend Entertaining" that used to come on DIY channel!!.....the good ole days....

  2. I LOVED David Tutera's show!! I would sit there and take notes...nerdy I know! A funny back story is that I actually interviewed with him to be one of his team members on the show...before it began airing and not knowing I would actually be on TV. But my husband and I decided to move back home to Texas during the interview process.
