Good Buy, Bad Buy? sends top housing experts to the rescue of overwhelmed house-hunting families. Each episode will profile two different homebuyers as they struggle to determine which of their favorite two potential homes is the better buy. During the show, two experts - such as a real estate professional, a housing inspector, a contractor, an architect and a designer - will advise the family on the pros and cons for each house.

One determined family will search for their perfect pet in Leader of the Pack. With three kids and eight competing canines, the family will work closely with animal experts to find the right dog for their home and lifestyle. Through a series of challenges, the family must decide whether a dog stays or moves on to another loving home. Although every dog eventually finds a new home, only one can be Leader of the Pack with this family.

Man Land

Man Land is a series where men get to be men.
