You’d think that given the housing bust, all those real estate related TV shows (Flip This House, Flipping Out, etc.) would have gone the way of The Sopranos. But cable channel TLC just announced it is filling its Tuesday night schedule with three shows.
The programming begins June 30 with Stager Invasion, hosted by professional home stager Lisa Lynch. The premise is that she shows up at a house that won’t sell and with her crack team of design professionals helps transform the home in eight hours, just in time for an open house. The show will be just a half-hour though.
TLC is also bringing back two of its existing series, Moving Up, which features people moving into new homes and renovating them. There’s also Real Estate Pros, which is a behind-the-scenes look at a real estate brokerage firm in Charleston, S.C.
The cable network is betting on the fact that people still want to watch some real estate shows, just not ones about making a quick buck.
