The show, called "Catch a Contractor" on Spike TV looked interesting so I have watched three episodes so far to get a feel of what the show is like. The show features two guys trying to catch bad contractors who are screwing families over. The families they find have usually given bad contractors money up front to do remodeling jobs and then these bad contractors run off with the money without finishing their jobs. The concept of the show is really good, because who doesn't like to see a bad guy get "busted"? However, I find that the show is a tad "cheesy". The main guy, Adam Carolla, is obnoxious and loud. If it weren't for him, I would like the show much more. His friend, Skip, seems like a solid, down to earth guy, which I like for a show of this type. I'm still on the fence about Skip's wife. She seems like she is doing a good job, however, it almost seems as if she is really on the show just for a "pretty factor". I understand this show is on SPIKE TV, so maybe I should just accept the cheesy and fluffy thing if I plan on watching it. This is not HGTV. If I had a choice of hosts for this show it would be someone with a personality more along the lines with Mike Rowe from Dirty Jobs. Adam Carolla goes over the top with sensationalism and episodes feel like a witch hunt with 20 people (camera & staging crew included) ganging up on one guy. I felt like this show was family friendly up until an episode I watched last night (3/16/2014). At the end of last night's episode Adam Carolla threw in the "M" word - about himself - which shocked me and made my stomach turn!! I did not want to mentally picture that nor did my young child, who was sitting nearby, need to hear that! It was thrown in there so quickly and unexpectedly. This is not the type of show for that nonsense. I have stopped liking the show completely! No more of this show for me!
