Ty Pennington and Paige Davis have revealed which television revivals they want to see next. Trading Spaces is the latest TV favorite to move back in.
After 10 years off the air, TLC's feel-good home-improvement show is returning on Saturday at 8 ET/PT, with its familiar format and exuberant cast mostly intact.
It joins a growing list of old television series in order to make a comeback this past year, including Will & Grace, Roseanne, American Idol.
Ty Pennington and Paige Davis Reveal 'Trading Spaces' is the Latest TV Favorite to Move Back In
Regarding what would Trading Spaces host Paige and carpenter Pennington choose to revive if they were network brass, 48-year-old Paige said,
Parenthood and All in the Family, if that could be recreated. Have you binged the new Queer Eye yet? It's so good.
53-year-old Pennington said, "I hear it's really great."
If he could bring back anything, it would be 1970's cop comedy Barney Miller.
That was hilarious — and now I just dated how old I am. One of my favorites back in the day was Twin Peaks, but then they did bring it back and it was still so creepy.
The original Spaces had premiered in 2000 and it ran for season 8, inspiring a number of spin-offs and design-show imitators.
Paige believes viewers will embrace the revival because of emphasized interest in decor, and because they want to watch something they already know.
Trading Spaces sort of hit its skyrocket right after 9/11, when people were hunkering down, not traveling and wanting to be with their families. They weren't going outside the home right away. Now, 10 years later, regardless of what side of the (political) aisle you fall on, there is unrest in ourcountry. I think that is a big reason why we're not the only show being brought back: There's a big nostalgic wave happening in television right, now because people are longing for comfort. We’re like mashed potatoes and gravy — the comfort food of television.
No, we’re more like the mac and cheese. Certainly the cheese.
