I hope I'm not alone in rejoicing the dawn of September and with it, all things autumn: boots, sweaters, crisp air-conditionerless air, soups, stews and best of all, new television! This season, we've got some familiar faces (Hello Scott McGillibabe! I blame Elana for the nickname), new faces and new series. There's a lot of exciting programming coming your way, covering all the things you like best: design, makeovers, real estate and renovations. So let's get to it!
Color Splash Premiering on Monday September 6 at 10am ET
Design Star champion David Bromstad brings his exuberance, passion, decorating savvy and unwavering belief that "color is the root of great design" to transform tired rooms for homeowners each week into vibrant, unforgettable spaces -- while he teaches us to do the same in our homes.
My First Sale Premiering on Monday September 6 at 2:30pm ET & 8:30pm ET
Think buying your first place is tough? Try selling it! My First Sale takes the proven and successful docudrama format of My First Place and turns it upside down -- telling the story from the seller's point of view. Selling your first place means the stakes are even higher than when you purchased. More pressure, more jeopardy, more to gain -- and potentially thousands to lose. My First Sale has even more drama and, most important, more valuable takeaways to help viewers make top dollar on their own sale.
Battle on The Block Premiering on Tuesday September 7 at 9pm ET
Battle On the Block is a fun, character-driven home makeover show where three neighboring families compete against one another in an effort to design and build one new room from scratch, all in the span of a single weekend! The winner not only gets $10,000 but also bragging rights in the neighborhood. You'll recognize host Genevieve Gorder from Dear Genevieve.

Tough as Nails Premiering Thursday October 7 at 2:30pm ET & 9:30pm ET

And in the middle of this whirlwind, she's a single mother of two. She can sometimes have a short fuse but it's always with good reason. How does she juggle it all and still remain true to who she is in a man's world? She's Tough as Nails.
