"While we have a number of strong new performers on our programming slate including Hawaii Life and Beachfront Bargain Hunt, we know that many of our viewer favorite programs helped HGTV attract more viewers than ever in 2013," said Steven Lerner, senior vice president, programming, HGTV and DIY Network. "With the continued success of the House Hunters franchise, Love It or List It and Property Brothers, viewers seem to never tire of real estate, renovation and peeking inside other peoples' homes."

From spectacular kitchens to gorgeous living rooms, the new season of Renovation Raiders, premiering Thursday, March 6, at 8 p.m. ET/PT, reveals what happens when unsuspecting homeowners head out to dinner and return hours later to a totally renovated space.
