"The ratings momentum that we're seeing with DIY Network reflects the affinity that audiences have for expert hosts tackling very relatable renovation challenges" said Kathleen Finch, president, HGTV and DIY Network. "Our powerhouse experts inspire and empower DIY-ers to take on their own projects. It's much easier to think you can do it when Mike Holmes, Nicole Curtis or Vanilla Ice have your back."
