House Hunters is a Great Show but the Memes are Even Better

I’m going to try and say that House Hunters is a great show without gagging, but I will gladly say that the memes are even better than the show. Why the gag? If you’ve watched it then you might understand the reason, and it’s simply because the people that come on this show seem to always be the type that either have no real idea of what they want and will continually look at houses with a continual shrug of the shoulders or will actively find something to complain about even if the house is immaculate. Meanwhile, those of us

Melissa Gorga Gives a Tour of Her Elaborate New Jersey Home, Now Listed for $3.5 Million: ‘If You Love It, Call Me’
Melissa Gorga’s Great Room isn’t totally off-limits to her and husband, Joe’s kids — so long as they stay off the sofa.

“I have three small children and it’s not always great to have nice white couches but I try my hardest,” she says in an upcoming episode of Open House. “I mean, they can come in here. They just can’t, like, sit on the couch.”

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star recently listed the Montville home she designed and Joe “built from the ground up,” with an asking price of $3.5 million.

‘Rick and Morty’: 10 Reasons Why ‘Morty’s Mind Blowers’ is a Great Place to Start for New Viewers

‘Rick and Morty’: 10 Reasons Why ‘Morty’s Mind Blowers’ is a Great Place to Start for New Viewers
First, a disclaimer: If you’re looking for a place to start with “Rick and Morty,” the greatest place will always be the pilot. From the jokes about Rick’s inherent distrust of bureaucracy to the immortal closing monologue, it’s the truest litmus test of whether even the most skeptical of first-time viewers are liable to get hooked.

With only a few episodes left in Season 3, however, people on the Internet who keep seeing these two interdimensional explorers pop up in memes (and an increasing number of think pieces) might now be curious about the show. And Sunday night’s episode “Morty’s Mind Blowers” isn’t a bad place to pick up either.

It’s certainly not the best episode of the season. (That honor goes to “The Ricklantis Mixup,” an episode most decidedly not best for beginners.) But as an encapsulation of the show’s episode-to-episode strengths,

Trading Spaces Is Bringing Back All the Original Designers You Were Hoping for — and Some Intriguing New Faces

Trading Spaces Is Bringing Back All the Original Designers You Were Hoping for — and Some Intriguing New Faces
Go ahead, call it a comeback!

Any Trading Spaces aficionado will tell you the hit TLC show, which aired from 2000 to 2008, was just as much about the rotating cast of designers’ big personalities as it was about redecorating on a budget.

On Wednesday, TLC announced the lineup for the show’s forthcoming reboot after a 10-year hiatus, and almost every fan favorite from the original series is making a return. Joining host Paige Davis, who signed on in July, will be Doug Wilson, Genevieve Gorder, Hildi Santo-Tomas, Vern Yip, Frank Bielic, and Laurie Smith. Beloved carpenters Ty Pennington and Carter Oosterhouse will also be back.

Watch: Hgtv's New House Hunters Family Stars the Franchise's Youngest (and Toughest) Critics Yet
The cult favorite real estate show House Hunters is getting a spinoff series starring some small but mighty characters.

House Hunters Family will follow couples and their children as they search for their new home. Watching two people try to agree on a property is plenty entertaining, but Hgtv is betting things will only escalate when house shoppers bring along their teeny peanut gallery.

Guilty Pleasure TV: Shows Critics Watch When They Should Be Working — IndieWire Survey

Guilty Pleasure TV: Shows Critics Watch When They Should Be Working — IndieWire Survey
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: What is your go-to guilty pleasure viewing?

Daniel Fienberg (@TheFienPrint), The Hollywood Reporter

Love what you watch, watch what you love and don’t be guilty to love what you love. Life is too short to have guilty pleasures. Of course, are there things I watch that I know aren’t “quality”? Sure! Any time I watch an episode of “House Hunters” or “House Hunters International” and find myself rooting for an incompatible, self-absorbed couple with an outlandish and indefensible budget to either break up on the spot or to make a housing choice that will surely facilitate a “Money Pit-“style scenario in which their

Hgtv By the Numbers: Find Out Which Stars Rule the Roost

Hgtv By the Numbers: Find Out Which Stars Rule the Roost
Everyone has a favorite Hgtv show. Some are partial to House Hunters and the desperate search for a man cave. Others prefer Fixer Upper's world of subway titles and backsplashes. And some are simply in it to watch the Property Brothers do, well, anything, so long as their jawlines are properly lit.  But simply having a devoted fandom does not a giant superstar, or financially successful show, make. Not all Hgtv shows are created equal. Sure, they're all doing better than most television programs these days (the term powerhouse comes to mind), but once a person does a little snooping they'll find that some shows have far different stats than others. So snoop we did.  Property...

TLC Resurrects ‘Trading Spaces,’ See Rest of Network’s Upcoming Slate
TLC is bringing back its famous home redecorating show “Trading Spaces” for its upcoming season, the network announced Tuesday along with the rest of its upcoming 2017-2018 slate. “Trading Spaces” ran from 2000 to 2008 and usually depicted two neighbors as they switch houses to redecorate a room in the other’s home with the help of one designer. They had two or three days (depending on the season) and a strict budget to adhere to. The show is coming back following a resurgence in the home decoration and renovation genre, with hits such as “Flip or Flop,” “House Hunters,” “The Property Brothers,

Flip or Flop: Will You Even Watch a New One?

There’s a new Flip or Flop on tonight on Hgtv. It’s called “Midcentury Miss.” I’m kind of thinking to myself, “do I care?” Not that I’m such an avid watcher of the show but it just seems impossible to watch this show now that we know all that we know about Tarek El Moussa and Christina El Moussa (I assume soon not to be an El Moussa?). It’s funny because I used to be obsessed with House Hunters but even after finding out that a large portion of that show is staged, even fake, I still watched it if only

Netflix Losing Food Network, Hgtv, Travel Channel Shows at End of 2016

Scripps Networks Interactive is ending its distribution deal with Netflix for shows like Food Network’s “Cutthroat Kitchen” and Hgtv’s “House Hunters.”

The programmer “made the strategic decision not to extend our Svod agreement with Netflix past the end of this year,” Scripps Networks Interactive COO Burton Jablin

said on the company’s earnings call Monday. “In the end, it really is not the kind of dual-revenue model that best monetizes our content over the long term.”

CEO Kenneth Lowe also on the call indicated that Sni felt it was forgoing advertising dollars with the Netflix deal: “We have such compelling content for advertisers that we just don’t want to really cut ourselves off from any opportunity.” But, Lowe added, “we gained a lot of internal knowledge on the digital side and on the best way to monetize this content, including the further expansion and development of our digital sales team.”

'The Walking Dead' Recap: Kingdom Come
Even in a zombie apocalypse, location is everything. The past six years of The Walking Dead have been like the most intense, endless House Hunters episode ever, as Rick Grimes and his band of survivors tour the ravaged American southeast, looking for a place with a roomy backyard – and preferably, neighbors who won't try to kill them and take all their stuff. They've journeyed from abandoned prisons to gated suburbs, and at every stop the facilities have been a little bit nicer, the future a little brighter. And now, in
