    TLC (ended 2008)
    The first and best home decorating show, and certainly the most copied show of it's kind, ended its run in December 2008 after 8 years. Host Paige Davis, 2 talented professional designers and 1 or 2 skilled carpenters were given just 2 days and a thousand dollars each week to help 1 person and their friend or relative improve a room belonging to another person, usually a neighbor, while that same other person and their friend or relative had a go at improving the first persons room in return. The journey was much of the fun as both the viewer and the homeowners learned new ways to remake their rooms in innovative ways, while wondering if the homeowners would love or hate their new rooms! Ever sit in a friend or relative's home and wish you could strip or paint the walls, take up the floor, sew and replace fabric on the couch or chairs? Well this show was for you... Trading Spaces was a design show based on the British series Changing Rooms. For the first 4 seasons, the show took two sets of neighbors, and they switched one room in each other's home. They were given a $1,000 budget and they only had two days to completely redesign their neighbor's room. They were assigned a designer and shared a carpenter. Starting with season 5, the neighbors and the designer got to choose the room and if they get the right room Paige picked, they would get extra money (usually twice the normal $1000) for the room. But they still only had two days to completely redesign their neighbor's room after the prep day. They still were not allowed back in to their own rooms until the two days are up. At the end of each episode, the host would sit down to talk with the designers about the room they just finished. Then, the host took the owners into their rooms, with their eyes closed, and revealed the room to them. Will they like the design? Will they hate them? Will they get rid of the design... The answer could be surprising during the reveal. During season 5 and continuing through season 7, Paige Davis was dropped from the show and a host-less format took over, with the designers and carpenters serving most of the functions Paige had done so well. The show continued, but seemed to loose focus, as the producers tried a number of changes to the format. They added a 2nd carpenter to each show in several seasons, added several of the designers and carpenters from the sister show While You Were Out to the roster, but ratings continued to stay low. So in season 8 the producers replaced everyone except Laura Day and Frank Bialec and one carpenter with a handful of new designers & 2 new male carpenters. The ratings must have nosedived because after less than half a season was shown, the new network bosses at TLC fired the production company and convinced Paige Davis and a 1/2 dozen of the most popular designers and carpenters to return to the show and see if going back to basics could restore the popularity the show had lost when Ms. Davis was let go. With the best talent on the show again, could the magic happen again! Apparently not, as the show was canceled after two more short seasons were shown. Some of the last season episodes were moved to a morning time-slot which probably lost the viewers that still remained. It was apparently a case of fixing the mistakes made to make the show without Paige Davis a little too late to recapture the audience that had moved on to other decorating shows during her absence.

    Newport Harbor: The Real Orange County

    Newport Harbor: The Real Orange County

    Follow
    MTV - Music Television (ended 2008)
    Located in Orange County, just south of Los Angeles on the Pacific Coast, one of the wealthiest communities within the US, even the world, is located: It's name: LAGUNA BEACH! After three seasons and some legal trouble, MTV moves the show to another town for a fourth season. The show moves to the bigger and richer NEWPORT BEACH. MTV now gains unlimited access to the rich kids of Laguna Beach and follows them around all day and all night long. What do rich kids do all day long? They hang out on the beach, fall in love and do everything they can to enjoy their privileged life. But is everyone so happy in this little paradise on Earth? Is everything as shiny as it looks like? In this smarter than it looks series, MTV proves that money might not be everything. The series focuses on a small group of high-school kids, who are filmed four days and nights a week over almost 6 months, a period of time that makes up one season. Every season has its main figure, who also works as narrator. In the first season this is Lauren "L.C." Conrad. In the second season it is L.C.'s big enemy, Kristen who takes over. After these two seasons everyone of the original cast left Laguna Beach for college, but MTV followed L.C. with the spin-off show THE HILLS. The fresh start in season three, with an entire new cast, features Tessa as new center/speaker of the show - and the show starts all over back in high-school, senior year. The group of friends is characterized by constant fights, intrigues and other mean behavior. The ratings were so bad that MTV decided not to go on with this cast, but due the legal trouble with the commune of Laguna, the local high school forced MTV to move out of town. The fourth season of the show moves to Newport Beach and welcomes an entire new cast. The season will feature high school senior Chrissy. Different than in the previous seasons, the show features just a couple of seniors while the others are juniors. Compared to previous seasons, the Newport Harbor cast is much less focused on sex and intrigues. Nonetheless, the high school drama continues. Parents feature much more prominently in this season; parents who actually try to protect their children. The narrator is Chrissy. She's a high-school senior desperately in love with Clay, a high school junior. Even though he returns her affections, both need help to get close to each other. Clay gets his relationship advice from his best friend Grant while Chrissy gets hers from her best friend and neighbor Sasha. The group is completed by Chase, his on and off girlfriend Taylor, and his crush Allie. Since ratings of the third season were bad and the show moved out of town, MTV only ordered 8 episodes for the fourth season. The ratings weren't bad, but also not outstanding. There was a fifth, and last, season, also known as a four-episodes special set called "Home For The Holidays".moreless

    Seven Network
    Deal or No Deal originally started off as a one hour series on a Sunday night at 7.30pm, but this year was changed to make it simpler and converted to a half hour series. Has done well at 5.30pm. Knocked rival show Price is Right back to 5.00pm and gotten rid of new half hour Millionaire as well (completely changed Channel Nine's afternoon game show times). Deal or No Deal is a game of luck and is hard to follow, try and see if you will understand it by the following instructions: There are 6 Blocks of Areas for Audience/Contestants to be seated in and at random, a singular block of audience/contestants are able to win up to $200,000. Once a block of 25 people are chosen, again at random, another person from the other 5 Blocks is chosen at random to join the other 25 contestants at winning the money. Now, there are 26 people, and they are asked 3 questions by Host Andrew O'Keefe. The person who answered them all correctly and in the fastest time, gets the chance to win the $200,000. This lucky contestant has to chose which briefcase (either number 1-26) they would like to play with. The remaining 25 briefcases are distributed to the remaining 25 unlucky contestants to hold. Host Andrew O'Keefe gives to contestant amounts of money ranging from $0.50 - $200,000 on the board. They must chose which briefcases have not got the $200,000, (as said above, hoping the cases they have chosen to hold on to is the $200,000)eliminating the smaller amounts. First, the contestant has 6 goes at eliminating amounts off the board and once finished, gets offered an amount of money from the bank. Then question is asked: Deal or No Deal. They may chose to play on and second have to eliminate 5 off the board, the question is asked after the contestant is offered an amount of money from the bank. If declined and play, they must eliminate 4 amounts off the board, still hoping not to get rid of large amounts. The 3 amounts must be taken off the board, then 2, then finally one at a time. Whatever the contestant is left with at the end of the game (even if the $200,000 did go off) then they are left with the amount in their briefcase or deal from the bank.moreless
