Reality Makeover, Home Improvement, Reality
Singer Jonathan Knight may be best known as a member of the band New Kids on the Block, but in this series he shares his renovation know-how by meticulously restoring centuries-old New England farmhouses that deserve a second chance.
The six-episode series will feature Jonathan, who has renovated more than 200 houses, as step by step he carefully preserves the original craftsmanship and historic charm of classic homes while he also modernizes layouts, updates interiors and gives his clients endless reasons to cheer.
To start the season, Jonathan will give new life to a 1700s New Hampshire farmhouse with help from his designer and friend, Kristina Crestin.
To stabilize the property, Jonathan must remove a sinking addition on the home but, on the plus side, he will convert a backyard tool shed into a stunning potting bench and chicken coop.
In future episodes, he will complete custom renovations for additional old homes, including creating an enviable chef's kitchen and a built-in seating area for a large dining room.
During the season, outdoor projects will include everything from a goat enclosure to raised garden beds.
I Love a Mama's Boy 2
TLC Entertainment (DStv 135)
What happens when a woman falls in love with a guy and wants to marry him... but he has a FAR more important woman in his life? It's his mom!
In this series the only thing standing between a couple's true love is a very different kind of "other woman."
These guys are spoiled, coddled and spoon-fed - in some cases quite literally - by their overbearing mothers, sending their relationships into serious romantic crisis.
Returning for its second season, I Love a Mama's Boy features two new mama's boys and picks up with three returning trios.
The romantic entanglements continue with even more overbearing mothers as these significant others continue to fight for love, attention and alone time with the men they love.
From a mother joining their son's honeymoon to sneaking around on mother/son date nights, who will take the leading role in their man's life... their mother or their mate?
Meet new and returning love triangles:
Tia, Theous and mom Carolyn (new)
Carolyn expects Theous to be at her beck and call, but Tia needs him to draw some boundaries with his mom before she'll meet him down the aisle. Carolyn's bad knee makes her extra needy of Theous's time, but that doesn't stop her from intruding into every aspect of their lives, including a Vegas vacation.
Tracy, Bryan and mom Jayne (new)
Jayne is oblivious to how she interferes in her son's life, wedding, marriage and now honeymoon.
Tracy needs to set the record straight and create boundaries they can all live by, but Bryan's loyalty to his mom erases any line Tracy draws.
As Jayne makes the honeymoon more about her vacation time than watching the kids, Tracy and Bryan struggle to find any romance and alone time.
It's more of a honeymoon from hell.
Emily, Shekeb, and Mom Laila (returning)
Emily and Shekeb are back together, but the women will have to accept each other if the couple can truly move forward.

While Matt contemplates his future, Kim and Kelly go head to head for his love and affection.
Stephanie, Mike, and Mom Liz (returning)
Stephanie and Mike are at a fork in the road.
Stephanie wants to go one way to follow her dreams, while Liz is waving Mike over in the opposite direction to plant roots close to her.
