Hillary Clinton, HGTV junkie?

The Democratic presidential frontrunner confessed a fondness for the home-and-garden-focused cable network on Monday when she was asked about her favorite TV shows during a discussion with South Carolina Democratic Party Chairman Jaime Harrison.

"There are certain programs I really like," Clinton said, naming CBS shows like "Madam Secretary" and "The Good Wife" as favorites, along with the British period drama "Downton Abbey."

"But I'll tell you, what I relax by is house and garden TV," she added. "I love watching people redecorating their houses, buying houses. There's a program called 'Love It or List It.' I like to watch 'Beachfront Bargain.' And I'm interested in this young couple that flips houses, whether they're gonna make their money or not."

"I find it relaxing and entertaining and informative, watching HGTV," she said.
