Happy New Year! It's that time again -- new year, new schedule! Check out what's new on HGTV Canada beginning Monday, January 2.

New Series
Home by Novogratz
Premieres Monday, January 2 at 8pm ET
Cortney and Robert Novogratz — the husband and wife design team who juggle seven children and dozens of clients — believe good taste and deep pockets have nothing to do with each other. In each episode, Robert and Cortney take on a new design project and create totally unique, wildly original spaces that showcase their funky, downtown-chic aesthetic, their unpretentious design sensibility, and their self-taught, drop-dead gorgeous style. They'll learn on the job, pull together an eclectic mix of shopping finds and, in the end, present their client with a spectacular and totally customized room that surpasses every expectation.

Kitchen Cousins
Premieres Monday, January 2 at 10pm ET         
Everyone wants to have their dream kitchen, and it's the Kitchen Cousins' job to make it a reality! Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri run a New Jersey-based family construction company that focuses on turning mediocre kitchens into masterpieces.

Canada’s Handyman Challenge

Premieres Tuesday, January 10 at 10pm ET
Canada’s Handyman Challenge is HGTV’s first nationwide search for the best everyday handyman. Judged by Mike Holmes, Scott McGillivray and Bryan Baeumler and hosted by interior designer Jillian Harris, the first Canadian Bachelorette and interior designer for Extreme Home Makeover, the competition puts contestants through a series of rigorous, skill-testing challenges to see who will win the coveted title of Canada’s Best Handyman.

Cowboy Builders

Premieres Wednesday, January 4 at 10am ET           
Up and down the country, cowboy builders are causing devastation and dismay. These reckless workmen are always bad news, leaving behind them piles of rubble, financial angst and heartache – and it’s up to our team to fix up ruined homes and drive the bad builder out of town. Standing up for aggrieved consumers everywhere are Dominic Littlewood and Melinda Messenger.

Leave It To Bryan

Premieres Thursday, January 5 at 10pm ET
Bryan Baeumler knows that the reno you need is not always the reno you want.  That marble bathroom might look fantastic, but when you’ve also got a kitchen that desperately needs updating, you’ve got to invest your money where it counts.  In this brand new HGTV series, homeowners hand over the decision – and the housekeys – to Bryan, who surprises them with the reno that looks great and makes sense.  

Million Dollar Contractor
Premieres Thursday, January 5 at 8pm ET
Hosted by "Contractor to the Stars" Stephen Fanuka, Million Dollar Contractor gives viewers a behind-the-scenes look at some of the most amazing spaces and construction of Manhattan's high-end luxury homes. The series focuses on the details, the materials and the insane amount of money clients spend to allow Stephen to create million-dollar projects. Despite the hefty price tag, many of the same on-site issues and problems also occur in the homes of everyday people. Throughout the series, Stephen shares tips and tricks of the trade that first-time DIYers and home improvement aficionados will appreciate.

Selling LA
Premieres Friday, January 6 at 9pm ET
From Beverly Hills to the Sunset Strip, Los Angeles is a place where the rich and famous live large, and everyone has a dream. For the region's real estate brokers, landing a client and closing a deal can be as competitive as any casting call. Follow three real estate firms as they build up their rosters of millionaire clients, tour spectacular properties and network their way through the competitive world of high-end real estate. This is Selling LA!

Massive Moves

Premieres Sunday, January 7 at 4pm ET
Moving house is one of the most stressful experiences we ever encounter - but can you imagine moving an entire house - fixtures, furniture, walls and roof intact, through a city, over a mountain or across a frozen lake! That’s the challenge faced by teams of house movers in each half hour episode of MASSIVE MOVES. In every show a team of movers race against the clock to move a monstrous house for a nervous set of homeowners. Much is at stake for these families …some want to swap their view of city streets for country hills, while others love their house but want to escape noisy neighbors – but all want to retain their beloved home. The movers must overcome huge hurdles - over hanging trees, low slung power lines, weak bridges and high speed traffic. There is high drama, jeopardy and emotion for everyone involved as everyone races to deliver their homes on time.
