From MSNBC: "No TV show was hotter in 2002 than “Trading Spaces.” All viewers could talk about was, “Did you see that lady crying when Doug covered up her fireplace? What a loon!” or “Can you believe that Hildi actually glued hay to the walls? What a loon!” But in 2003, no one really talks about TLC’s preeminent home-design show anymore. What went wrong?"
I'm not quite all the way sold on the article, & maybe the show that was a popular buzz as people discovered it is now an old friend that people still choose to check out. My big question is this - How does having one single room in your house that is worth 50k affect the overall value of your house?
