Kardashian sisters, 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition'Bullying is a serious problem that can lead to all sorts of emotional and psychological issues for the victims, even later into their lives. For the Walker family, it cost them their son after he committed suicide at the tender age of 11. On 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition' (Fri., 8PM ET on ABC), the family was giving a new home they could hopefully feel at peace in, as well as some help with their anti-bullying initiative.

First, the Kardashian sisters surprised eldest daughter Dominique on a shopping trip, where Khloe talked about her own experiences with bullying. She was often compared negatively to sisters Kourtney and Kim, and fans of the show know that she actually took a DNA test years later to see if she was truly related to them. Insecurities from bullying can linger for years.

'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition' - 'The Korpai Family'This week, Ty Pennington and the 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition' (Sun., 8PM ET on ABC) took on a task very close to the heart for Amy and Matt Roloff ('Little People Big World'). The Korpai family have a five-year old daughter, Hailey, with dwarfism, but their house is hardly suitable for her needs.

The Roloffs undertook a similar renovation on their farm to make the kitchen and other areas of the house more user-friendly for little people. So the design team stopped by Roloff farms for some inspiration, and invited Matt back to help with the build. Bill Klein and Jen Arnold ('The Little Couple') got involved as well, as this was more than just a rebuild of a house.

What to Watch: March 29 - April 4

Biography: Tiger Woods
- Thursday April 1, 8 pm, Biography Channel

When illustrious personages reach a certain age or notoriety, it is common practice in the media to have an obituary ready and written in case of sudden death. I imagine Michael Jackson falls into this category, and I know when I was at a magazine, a certain low-voiced newsman was our main worry. I would suspect the Biography Channel's eponymous show works the same way so I'm surprised it took this long to get a Tiger Woods episode on the air. Interviews with himself, his late father, Wayne Gretzky, Lance Armstrong and Michael Jordan pepper the episode, and is timed perfectly for Woods' return at the Masters this April.
