Extreme cleaning specialist Matt Paxton is back on Hoarders—and on PBS, with Legacy List, a show he created that cable networks rejected, because they didn’t think anyone would want to watch old people or uplifting stories about their possessions and lives.
A&E, renew this show, which became an even better, more informative, more emotionally affecting show as a result of its longer episodes.
Hoarders returned with a two-hour episode after being off the air for two years. It started off feeling unnecessary, but proved its worth by the end.
Hoarders season 10 is now casting, though it is unclear when new episodes will air, or how many are being produced.
The “Sandra” episode of Hoarders was an exceptional example of the A&E show at its absolute best. And it broke both Dr. Zasio and Matt Paxton.
Hoarders airs its season, maybe series, finale on Sunday, with what will be Matt Paxton’s final episode. Why it’s “the most difficult hoard I’ve ever seen.”
Hoarders season nine is currently casting and filming. This may be the last season for the show that helps people with hoarding disorder who are in crisis.
Hoarders season finale—which could be the last episode for this on-the-bubble show— included Matt Paxton summarizing just what this show accomplishes.
Hoarders is now back on A&E, helping hoarders and their families deal with crises, and setting up families with aftercare to help treat the person affected by hoarding disorder. There are other shows, but Hoarders does it right: They not only send an organizer and a clean-up crew, but also a mental health professional, and provide funding for therapy and help after the cameras leave.
While I am a fan of both the television show and its work, I’m not the show’s production company, Screaming Flea Productions. Alas, I often receive e-mail from people telling me their story and asking for help, as they confuse me with the show.
Here’s how to apply.
Hoarders returned with a new season Sunday, and it was back on its original network, A&E. For season eight, the reality show also discarded some unnecessary junk: its short-lived subtitle, “Family Secrets,” which the show had during its 10-episode run on Lifetime last year.
Here’s a brief rundown of the show’s history.
On Hoarders, organizer Dorothy Breininger often pushes a person in crisis to make tough decisions about things that are destroying their lives. But she also sees herself as the protector and defender of that stuff: she cares about the trash… continue reading
Hoarders has often been accused of sensationalizing and/or exploiting its subjects and their mental illness. I think the opposite is true, and I’ve long championed it and defended it, writing about it extensively, because it was strong reality television and… continue reading
The return of Hoarders was confirmed by A+E Networks, and the series will officially switch networks to Lifetime and get a new subtitle along with live elements. This resurrection, which I first reported news of in early March, is yet… continue reading
Will Hoarders return? The answer is now yes: New episodes of Hoarders are in production, meaning the show is coming back from cancellation. A&E cancelled Hoarders in 2013, but last summer, brought it back for a follow-up special and added updates to several episodes. That was because… continue reading
Despite being cancelled by A&E last fall, Hoarders returns tonight with a special one-hour episode on Lifetime, in addition to some other new content. I talked to executive producer George Butts from Screaming Flea Productions to get details about the… continue reading
