Hoarders

  • A&E
  • 10 seasons
  • Reality TV

Hoarders on A&E explores the world of extreme hoarding; a mental disorder marked by an obsessive need to collect things, even if the items are worthless, hazardous or unsanitary. The series takes a fascinating look at the lives of people whose inability to part with their belongings is so out of control that they are on the verge of a personal crisis. Whether they’re facing eviction, the loss of their children, jail time, or divorce, they are all desperately in need of help.

The series captures the drama as experts work to put each hoarder on the road to recovery. The second season premiere of Hoarders, the number one freshman non-fiction series on cable among adults 25-54, will introduce Augustine, whose son Jason was removed from her home by Child Protective Services 14 years ago, because of her hoarding. She was never able to clean up enough to have him return. Now, as an adult living on the other side of the country, he is filled with shame and resentment, but unable to turn his back on her. Augustine’s hoarding has become so severe that she has lived without water, gas, heat or appliances for the last four years -- bathing only once a week at her sister’s house. Complaints from neighbors have instigated a court ordered clean-up and the city is threatening to condemn her house. Now, “Hoarders” follows Jason as he tries one last time to rescue his mother from the filth he escaped from years ago.

First aired August 17, 2009.

Intervention

Intervention is an American television program about the realities facing addicts of many kinds.

Each program follows one or two participants, each of whom suffers from an addiction and believes he is being filmed for a documentary on addictions. Their situations are actually being documented in anticipation of an intervention by family and/or friends. Each participant has a choice: go into rehabilitation immediately, or risk losing contact, income, or other privileges from the loved ones who instigated the intervention. Often, other tactics are used to persuade the addicted person into treatment, which vary depending on the situation. The producers usually follow up months later to monitor the addicted person's progress and film it for "follow up" episodes.

First aired March 6, 2005.

Flipping Vegas

The housing bubble that burst in 2008 flooded the market with unsold properties. In Las Vegas, for example, thousands of homes were left abandoned and, worse yet, in need of makeovers to entice interested buyers. What happens to those Vegas properties now has a lot to do with Scott Yancey, a real estate investor who buys the houses in Sin City that no one else wants. ``Flipping Vegas'' follows Yancey and his team -- wife and interior designer Amie, and a bevy of project managers and real estate agents -- on their quest to renovate rundown homes and sell them for a profit.
