2 out of 4. Not bad for a guy who usually only watches the Travel Channel and Discovery.

No. I have to say that 5 was the one that I thought had the stupidiest keywords. The rest mostly make sense, although each one had one weird keyword. 5 was completely WTF - the aunt/neice and aunt/nephew are so tagential to the overall premise.

So tempted to say "Tool Time". :)

Trading Spaces, maybe?

This one's making me aware of how many shows there are that involve redecorating right now.

Yes - it is Trading Spaces.

There are a ton of shows out there. Tradiing Spaces was one of the few that I loved. Now they've tinkered with it so much that it is boring.
