HGTV Antonio TreatmentWhen it comes time to think about some of the best shows on television, the list usually comprises major network programs that get the most attention. But as my top shows have come to a close this season, I've been forced to venture into unknown territories. Upon doing so, I've found some real contenders that have entertained me more than 'The Office,' '30 Rock' and all my other standbys did this year.

Those shows are on HGTV.

Yes, I know that it sounds ridiculous to believe that a channel about "home and garden" could actually captivate audiences, but it can. As a relatively new homeowner, I've found all sorts of great interior design ideas from the channel. I'm also keen on watching first-time home buyers try their luck at buying that first place. Not only does it examine common pitfalls when buying a house, it also sheds some light on how we got into this housing crisis with buyers attempting to own a home that's outside of their budget.

The Five: HGTV shows I'm addicted to

by Anna Johns, posted Jan 31st 2006 10:37AM
5. Design on a Dime. I've lost track of how many hosts and designers they've had on this show, but it's still entertaining. I get inspired by their do-it-yourself projects, even though I know I do not and never will have any crafty skills. The crew tends to successfully pull off a $1,000 makeover that seems within reach, for those of you with actual skills.

4. Curb Appeal. Being a homeowner, I find inspiration in this show. It's amazing what some planters and a little landscaping will do to improve the look of a home. I also like that they have the homeowners pitch in to do most of the work, which makes the show more accessible.
