HGTV Announces Renewals of "Home Strange Home," "Extreme Homes," and "You Live in What"

NEW YORK - Thursday, Oct. 18 - Wacky, unusual and unique homes have captured the attention of millions of viewers with HGTV's new series Home Strange Home, Extreme Homes and You Live in What?.

Originally launched as one-hour specials, Home Strange Home and You Live in What? will continue production with eight, one-hour episodes of a second season while Extreme Homes will continue with eight, one-hour episodes of a third. Both You Live in What? and Extreme Homes, which originally premiered in early 2012, ranked among the Top 5 rated prime specials on HGTV among P25-54. More than 3.9 million viewers tuned in to watch Home Strange Home when it debuted in November 2011.

"Our new genre featuring spectacular and quirky homes is pulling a big audience," said HGTV's General Manager Kathleen Finch. "From real estate to renovation and luxury living to home improvement, HGTV offers programming across the spectrum of 'home,' so it makes perfect sense to develop and green light series and season renewals that offer viewers a voyeuristic look at extreme and extraordinary living."

Home Strange Home, which makes its series debut on Friday, Oct. 19 at 9 p.m. ET/PT, introduces viewers to unconventional houses and their owners. Hosted by comedian Chuck Nice, the eccentric and bizarre residences include a modern-day Peter Pan's Neverland, a million dollar Earth ship, a Las Vegas museum, a Tulsa cave, and houses made out of animal bones, beers cans and more. In its second season, HGTV goes inside a real life witches home pulled straight out of the Hansel and Gretel fairytale, the original Village People's YMCA and other one-of-a-kind creations.

The word "extreme" means different things to different people, and to the homeowners featured in Extreme Homes, it means pushing the envelope as far as possible. Throughout this year, more than 11 million viewers tuned in to the series to get an up-close look at some of the world's most spectacular houses ever built - including a modern a castle, a seaside house made of refrigerator panels and floating ferry boat, and sun-revolving spherical abode. Recently bowing its second season on Oct. 4, viewers can see more extraordinary homes, including a pyramid in rural Ohio, a glass box in Switzerland and rolling-dice and mailbox shaped edifices every Thursday at 9 p.m. ET/PT. More unique options will also be captured in the third season, premiering in first quarter.

Not everyone lives in a cozy 3-bedroom, 2-bath house in the suburbs. In the series You Live in What? HGTV offers a sneak-peek into the imaginative homes of people who live in some really outrageous places. Watched by more than 14 million viewers this year, the first season highlighted a couple who live on an old rail-road bridge and the infamous historic Manhattan bank turned dream home. In early 2013, the second season of You Live in What? brings viewers eight new episodes of unusual spaces converted into masterful residences.
