Screen Scene: HGTV hunks rebranded as “Cousins On Call”

What was “Kitchen Cousins” is now “Cousins On Call.” Maybe HGTV thought “Kitchen Cousins” was too suggestive, too close to “kissing cousins” for comfort? So now it’s “Cousins On Call” … totally different!

Hi-Def Dish: HGTV’s Hunks of Wednesday night live up to their billing

Remember when home renovation was the contractor’s equivalent of a root canal? Most people do, and for most part remodeling a kitchen or a bath or God forbid, an entire house is still a full body root canal.

HGTV offers a refuge in the storm for those who have tread that nightmarish path to new appliances, open and light-filled interior spaces and shiny new fixtures. This time, though, the path is tasteful and impeccably landscaped and very well-lit, fully illuminated by the hunks of Wednesday night on HGTV.
