Forget about Magic Mike XXL. We’ve got something better…HGTV XXL!

Sorry Mike, but you’ve got nothing on the Men of HGTV!

If you’ve been missing HGTV heart throbs and real-life cousins, Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri…the wait’s over. The series premiere of America’s Most Desperate Kitchens happens Tonight on HGTV.

If you love amazing kitchen transformations, then you can’t miss this one. Just watching for the eye candy? That’s ok too (no judgment here).

But if you really want the full cousins experience, be sure to join us on Twitter during the show to chat LIVE with Anthony and John. Just use #AMDK and follow @CarrinoAnthony and @ColaneriJohn to join.

And the party doesn’t stop there. The HGTV family affair continues with an all-NEW episode of Buying and Selling.

If you’re a die-hard #BroVsBro fan then:

1.   I don’t have to explain the hashtag…you already know.
2.  There’s only one place you will be tonight, and it involves HGTV.

Yes folks, we’re down to the final, heated moments as our favorite bros take their finished homes to market and discover who is the winner of Brother Vs. Brother .

As it stands now, Drew is in the lead with two renovation victories, but it’s still anyone’s game. Our social media score keeper shows the fan choice is neck-and-neck, so this one is just too close to call.

Are you #TeamJonathan or #TeamDrew?  Place your bets now, then follow Jonathan and Drew for a LIVE play-by-play on Twitter (use #BroVsBro).  And if you tweet with us during the show, we might just show it on screen.

So tune to HGTV, power up your device of choice, and let’s get this “bro-down” started!

The season finale of Brother Vs. Brother airs Tonight 9|8c.

Ok, Brother Vs. Brother fans: it’s half-time and the score is tied.  Jonathan garnered the first victory with an amazing living room makeover.  Then, last week Drew fought his way back with a show-stopping kitchen reno.

Now it’s anyone’s game.  Our social media score keeper shows the majority of viewers are rooting for #TeamDrew.

But all that can change at the drop of a hat (or a hammer).  #TeamJonathan has a very loyal (and vocal) following.

Here’s a sample of what folks are saying on Twitter about their favorite bros:

So, the water-cooler question of the day is: are you #TeamDrew or #TeamJonathan?

Join us on Twitter tonight during the show and cheer for your favorite bro. Just use #BroVsBro to join the fun.

How does one describe HGTV’s Scott brothers?  Well, words like charming, funny, witty, and talented naturally come to mind.

But let’s not forget competitive…especially with each other.  What can we say…brothers will be brothers!

That’s why this new season of Brother Vs. Brother is going to be the fiercest yet.  This time around the teams are gone and it’s a true Brother Vs. Brother, mano a mano!

Watch a sneak peek here.

And if you need a pre-premiere brothers fix, just keep an eye out for these social media nuggets, happening today only:

  • #BroVsBro @HGTV Instagram takeover.  (Yes, we’re handing our phones over to Jonathan and Drew.)

If you happen to be a country music fan like me, then you probably get super excited around this time of year.  June is almost here, and that can only mean one thing…CMA Music Festival 2015!  And since HGTV is headquartered right here in East Tennessee, it’s only a hop, skip, and a jump to Nashville.

If you have plans to attend the event this year, swing by the HGTV Lodge and say hi to Scripps Networks talent Alison Victoria, David Bromstad, Nan Kelley, and Suzanne Alexander.

Guests can catch over 20 live performances and attend meet and greets with some of the biggest names in country music, including Lady Antebellum, Zac Brown Band, Darius Rucker, Josh Turner and Kip Moore (check out the full schedule here). With only 300 attendees during each show, air conditioning and a mobile device charging station, The Lodge is the perfect place to relax and unwind in the middle of the city. For admission to The Lodge, fans can register for free tickets starting May 28 at

For more information about the HGTV Lodge and CMA Fest 2015, visit HGTV On the Road and follow HGTV on Instagram and Twitter for daily updates and exclusive content during the festival.

Fixer Upper episodes are kind of like potato chips…you can’t stop at just one (I’m sure Chip would love that analogy).

That’s why we asked our viewers to vote for their top picks.  And this weekend we’re counting them down!

Join us Saturday starting 1pm|12c for Fixer Upper Fan Day, as we play your favorite makeovers from season two.

And to add to the fun, Chip and Jo will host a Twitter Party during the most popular episode, which airs 7pm|6c. For a chance to chat with them live, just take to Twitter and use #FixerUpper to join.  And if we really like your tweet, we might just show it on TV during the episode.

Here’s a sneak peek at the Fixer Upper goodness coming this Saturday:

In case you’ve lost count, I’m proud to share that HGTV recently celebrated 20 years of being on the air.  And it’s no exaggeration to say this ‘home’ was literally built from the ground up, by a handful of people with an incredible vision.  One of those HGTV pioneers was Susan Packard.  Susan was the second person hired at HGTV, after founder Ken Lowe.  A co-founder of the network, Susan left an influential mark on HGTV’s history and a legacy of excellence in the cable programming industry.

Now Susan brings her wealth of knowledge and experience to a brand new publication, New Rules of the Game: 10 Strategies for Women in the Workplace.  A DIY guide of sorts, New Rules sets forth a series of principles that women in any business environment can apply to their own career paths.

Susan recently took a break from a promotional tour to chat with me about the book (plus I had the priviledge of getting a sneak peek before it hit stands). In New Rules of the Game, Susan compares the workplace to team sports:

“You get a sense that the workplace is much larger than just you and your boss. If you see it as men typically do-a big playing field- you see at times you’re collaborating and other times you’re competing. There are a lot of people that can impact your career, not just your boss.”

New Rules of the Game is rich with stories from Susan’s life and that of 10 other executives she’s interviewed, including Ken Lowe and another co-founder, Frank Gardner. The book provides tips to create better self-awareness and perception, form your fan club, rediscover passions, and build a game plan to succeed. Plus, Susan suggests simple ways to deal with the higher standards that women are often held to (yes, meditation can help you keep your game face on).

And if you’d like to know what it was like to work here in the early days, Susan has included some great inspirational stories from her many years spent helping grow HGTV into a top ten cable network.

But don’t take my word for it, add New Rules of the Game to your reading list now. Whether you’re trying to learn more about how to navigate work and life, or curious to see how one woman helped hit it out the ballpark with the launch of the first (and best) home lifestyle cable channel, you’ll want to get your hands on this book.

New Rules of the Game is on bookstands now, or you can purchase it here.  Susan can also be found at

Confession time:  we have a secret crush that we just can’t hide any longer.  It’s time to come out and proclaim our love for Pinterest.

Of course, if you follow us on social media, you probably know this “confession” isn’t completely true…our “secret” crush has never been much of a secret.  We’re very proud of our healthy obsession with Pinterest.   With thousands of inspiring rooms, decorating tips, and DIY pins, it just seems natural to spend most of our time there.

So you’ll understand why we are so excited to share that HGTV is being featured in this week’s Pin Picks.  This front-page editorial curates the “best of the best” pins centered around weekly themes.  This week’s theme is House Hacks and there you’ll discover our most popular room-by-room projects, design tips, and clever solutions around the home.

But pins speak louder than words, so click over and check it out now.   And if you don’t follow all of our boards yet, be sure to do that, too.

Summer is the season at HGTV that we spend most of our time showcasing beautiful outdoor spaces.  But some rooms inside the home tend to hold our attention all year long.  Kitchens and baths are always the two most talked about spaces on our websites and social media pages.  Viewers are either dreaming of a brand new kitchen or bath, planning a new project, or finishing a renovation.  Kitchens and baths are just a hot topic any time of the year.

That’s why we thought it would be fun to get together with the Scripps Networks’ family of brands and host a Kitchen & Bath Hour all month long. Tuesdays (8/7c) in July, you can find HGTV, DIYNetwork, HGTVRemodels, and HGTV Frontdoor sharing our most inspiring kitchen and bath designs, clever storage tips, and money-saving project ideas.

And it’s all happening at our favorite social media destination, Pinterest.  It’s super easy to join us.  Just log on to Pinterest Tuesday evenings and click on the special board, where we will be hosting the event.  Then just wait for the “pin-spiration”…we’ll be there with you pinning LIVE.

Never joined a pin party?  Get all the details on what they’re about right here.

So, whether you’re dreaming or doing, you don’t want to miss our Kitchen & Bath Hour, Tuesdays at 8p/7c.  See you on Pinterest!

And in the meantime, set the mood with these beautiful kitchens and baths.
