Almost a year and a half after it first hit the airwaves on HGTV Canada, Holmes Makes It Right is FINALLY set to air on HGTV US starting January 18. The show has been accessible to some US viewers since August 2012 through HGTV's sister network DIY, however, for most US cable and satellite subscribers, DIY is a premium channel. There is one small caveat though. The show is airing on HGTV US at 7AM in the morning. 7AM??? The reason given for the early time slot is that HGTV is experimenting, trying to find the most appropriate place for the new show. "This is a testing time period. Nothing is finalized yet" was the standard response from the Holmes Makes It Right Facebook account to fans inquiring about the unusual time slot. In my opinion, the only two things that should be airing at 7AM in the morning is the news and infomercials for acne face wash. Mike's show, if aired during people hours, would undoubtedly explode in popularity as it has on the DIY network. I am confident, as I'm sure the Holmes Group is confident, that this 7AM gig is only temporary. The moment people get word that Holmes is back on HGTV, it won't be long until the show gets pushed to prime time where it rightfully belongs in my opinion.
