HGTV says stiff competition in the Monday night television lineup is the reason it has decided to delay further episodes of its new show "Showhouse Showdown," which filmed an episode in August in Midland.

Cobblestone Homes built the two homes where the local episode was filmed. That episode, during which mid-Michigan residents voted to determine the winning designer, had been tentatively scheduled to air Oct. 17.

"The executive producer is extremely happy with our episode — the homes, the designers, the crowd, everything. We had more than 700 people show up for the last day of filming, and that broke a 'Showhouse Showdown' record," said Cobblestone co-owner Mark Wahl. "So our episode isn't the issue.

"The issue, producers said, is competing shows on competing networks. Folks are tuning into shows like 'Dancing with the Stars' (on ABC) during that time slot, and HGTV just isn't getting the numbers of viewers it needs right now to justify airing its new lineup."

HGTV says it has invested a lot of money into "Showhouse Showdown" and still believes it will draw viewers. It plans to air the remaining episodes once the network determines a more favorable time slot, Wahl said.

"Showhouse Showdown" pits two professional interior designers against each other in nearly identical homes. Designers are given identical decorating budgets and the chance to create a winning interior design. Cobblestone was chosen to build the two Midland homes for the show through a nationwide search.

We will announce via this website and our Facebook page any word we receive from HGTV regarding the air date.
