Bass has responded to this morning's revelation that the Discovery-owned channel outbid him in owning the iconic sitcom home. "HGTV??! Aw man,I’d be pretty upset if it were anyone else, but how can you be mad at HGTV??" he tweeted. "My television is stuck on that channel. Kudos HGTV, I know you will do the right thing with the house. That was always my biggest worry. I can smile again."
