From disastrous decor to disabling habits, Style Network and TLC are piling on a few more reality TV offerings this season.

Variety is reporting that Style Network will present 10 episodes of 'Tacky House,' set to air in the spring. The series will send 'Queer Eye for the Straight Guy' alum Thom Filicia to investigate unfortunate interiors in the hopes of making them more presentable.

Produced by Lynchpin Productions and executive produced by Rob Eric, Michael Williams, Michael Hauser and Sarah Weidman, 'Tacky House' will capitalize on viewer lookie-loos who watch the network's other home offerings like 'Clean House' and 'Open House.' Filicia currently hosts 'Dress my Nest' for Style Network, in which he transforms run-of-the-mill pads into spectacular spaces.From disastrous decor to disabling habits, Style Network and TLC are piling on a few more reality TV offerings this season.

Meanwhile, TLC will venture into intervention territory with its newest reality project, 'Addicted.' According to Variety, therapist Kristina Wandzilak will help addicts on a path to recovery with their family and friends. The show, which will launch in March, has been picked up for six episodes, with each focusing on one addict's story.

"This is a series about family, change and hope," said TLC's Eileen O'Neill. "While viewers will see the brutal battle for sobriety, it ultimately demonstrates the importance of substance abuse treatment and makes for powerful TV."

A recovering addict, Wandzilak will use her own story to help each addict's recovery. She's also written books about her experience, and is a regular on the public speaking circuit. "Addiction happens to good people and decent families all the time," she said. "I know how to change a life and I know how to live better."

Both networks will clean up homes and addicts; however, it remains to be seen whether they'll tidy up in the ratings.
