Weekend TV: Dream Builders, Resurrection, Girls Finale

In what initially comes off as a Habitat for Inhumanity — fueled by reality-competition juices that upstage the do-gooder impulse of neighborhood home renovation — NBC's derivative American Dream Builders takes its visual cues from Extreme Makeover Home Edition (airing in that show's old time period, Sundays at 8/7c), complete with an elaborate weekly reveal, although the only bus here is the one the contestants repeatedly throw each other under.

Exclusive First Look: Nate Berkus Inspires on American Dream Builders

NBC's new reality show American Dream Builders puts a spin on the home makeover TV genre.

While the series has all the feel-good inspiration we've come to expect of the genre, American Dream Builders ups the drama by pitting dueling teams of designers against each other in a competition to give two families their dream homes. As people are eliminated each week, the teams grow smaller, forcing the remaining players to take on even more responsibility.

"We are changing the lives of these families. We are changing the way they think about themselves by waking up in a beautiful home that's been designed exactly how they want to live," host Nate Berkus says in this exclusive first look.

Q&A: NBC's Bob Greenblatt on His Comedy Conundrum, the Late Night Transition and More

NBC headed into midseason last year with plenty of momentum — only to see its fortunes collapse as The Voice took a winter nap and new hit Revolution went on hiatus.

Lesson learned. Not taking this fall's solid ratings for granted, NBC will bring its new smash, The Blacklist, back in January before taking a break for the Olympics. And the Winter Games will provide a ratings boost as well as a broad platform on which to market the network's upcoming series.
