What was Andy Cohen & company smoking or drinking when they gave the green light to this snore of a show? Over-priced, over-designed real estate has become such a boring programming cliche that I long for HGTV in its Candice Olsen / David Bromstad glory days. How about news the rest of us can use? I have no desire to transform my apartment into a Moorish palace. Do you?
The show’s premise is as minimalist an appeal to home-related advertisers as it gets: Three panelists and a a host comment on the decor (and guess the listing price) of three multi-million dollar properties.
I wonder if Jeff Lewis’ snarky star power can save this one. But he’s back, both on ‘Interior Therapy”
now and for Season 7 of Flipping Out.
