I have a confession. There are times during the weekend that I don't get to watch sports. We are a one television household, by design, and my lovely wife watches what she wants to watch on the weekend, simply because I can tend to dominate the television if anything Tech related is on the television. One of my wife's favorite shows is Sell This House, which is on A&E. I will watch this show with my wife for one reason and one reason only. It's not because I love to decorate or re-arrange rooms, but because of the show's host, Tanya Memme. You could find pictures of her here and here and here and her mere presence on the show makes it more than palatable.
My advice to you. If your wife/girlfriend wants to watch a home improvement show, stick with this one. Good times.
