The Top Ten

1 Fixer Upper

I love this show because they re use items. Joanna is a great decorator, always enjoy the items she finds to incorporate into Herr design. But it is the warm and loving spirit that Chip and Joanna have. It is so evident, that their light shines you cannot miss it. It is the warmth of their family that makes you enjoy the show.

Believe or not just found this show, and I'm hooked. Talk about real talent, they're fantastic, and just come across as two great people. Living in California just can't believe what's available in Waco, Texas... then all is needed is the 'Fixer Upper' team, for around 200k, there is your dream home, just wonderful.

When it comes to looking for ideas or new ideas, this is the show I come to. My dream home is a farm country home. Chip and JoAnn have my taste in style in all areas, except for goats. Sorry Chip. They are down to earth people, but most of all they have that special marriage that I admire of what it takes to work together. I not only learn the creativity, I learn how they learn each other to work together for there career and for their children.
Love them. - Sherilyn

Love JoAnn and Chuck Gaines!

3 Extreme Makeover: Home Edition

How do I apply for this for my mother? She gave up her life ten years ago to watch my gramma and grandpa who were terminally ill and both on oxygen, and also watched her grandmother who was 93! Now all three have passed and my mother took over guardianship of her fathers sister who has Down syndrome. She has given up so much of her life for others and she recently had hip replacement surgery and is overwhelmed with organizing the house she was left with. She has so many beautiful antiques and if the house was updated a little, it would look beautiful. She had the outside resided a few years back but ran out of money to complete the inside of the house. The house was built in 1867 and has had five generations of family live there. The downstairs has had new Sheetrock but the upstairs bedrooms need new Sheetrock. She almost got the house done, but ran out of funds and now it is hard for her because of her hip. The downstairs bathroom needs a shower for her aunt with Down syndrome ...more

Each aspect of this show is a testament to community. Neighbors, friends, supporters, coworkers and others help local construction experts and suppliers in the cause of benefitting deserving families. Not a dry eye in the house at the end of each episode.

My husband and I have moved from place to place always renting. We've always taken care of my son and grandson. We're the only family we have. My son is a single parent. I'm disabled with heart disease, diabetes, hyperthyroidism, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. The last place we have lived in was like living in a horror movie. I ended up having to keep my doors locked and a gun near me because of the landlord. We only lived her 5 months. I'm suing him for sexually harassment. I'm always home alone. We're moving now to a house that's been gutted. We're buying the house and we're doing everything we can to get the house going. My son and husband took money out of there 401K. Plus what my husband makes and my disability. We have only found 2 people that would help. We're both also veterans. Im55 years old and have always dreamed of me and my husband having a real home of our home. I wanted a bear claw tub. But we're not rich enough to buy one so we bought one at a flea market ...more

I love how you help real people!
Now Rockport Texas is in great needs! Hoping you would help a family or two there rebuilt! Thank you in advance!

4 Property Brothers

Drew and Jonathan are the best. Their personalities make this program. I like to see the house hunting with Drew and the renovations and how these awesome brothers solve all the problems along the way. They are both professional caring and ENTERTAINING.

I love this show. They do care for the happiness of their clients on the work they do. They try to save on every part of the renovation.

Pretty cool. They prefer the scorched earth policy of renovating older homes, but they are smart and likeable and occasionally have good taste. Sometimes they are a bit too cookie-cutter for me, but they still (mostly) have style.

Love the brothers but I wish they would have stayed in Canada. I liked seeing what’s available up here.

5 This Old House

A true remodeling show and of course one of the originals. This show is the perfect format, no drama just the actual techniques of the project. They walk you through the entire project showing just enough to motivate your imagination and demonstrate the latest techniques or best practice. This is by far the best home improvement show...

I absolutely love This Old House! It truly is one NO it truly is THE BEST show on television

They used to show cost breakdown pricing after the show They stopped why

Love the show and the way they explain what they're doing and how they do it. Great information for thise that don't have expertise in that area.

6 Flip or Flop

The very best one yet, no comparison

Love it!

7 The Block

No where else have I learnt so much about style and interior decorating

I skip the episodes that cover all the drama among the contestants and just watch the room reveal episodes. Even then you get enough of a sense of the development of the contestants, interesting comments on style and function, and some great renos.

A lot of drama but is so you become invested in the contestants.

The Block is an amazing mix between reality T.V. and renovation.

No nonsense show. He is a great designer and mixes is just the right amount of humor without going overboard. I wish it was on more.

Watching these novices who often don't know which end of a hammer to hold gives those of us who have some skills the feeling that "if they can do it, I can do it." I would like to see a program that shows follow-up. Did the house sell/close? Did they decide to try it again? Are they still together or friends?
