This week we are in Houston, Texas and we are visiting the Johnson family. Let's face it, friends, this show is known for making millions of Americans cry every Sunday night. If you don't cry at some of the subject matter on these builds, then you ain't got a heart or there's something wrong with you. You come and meet this family and you look at their home and you want to cry because it's terrible. However, you can't because this family is so fun and energetic and they put the greatest face on everything. I think their mentality is, "it could be worse."
The Walking Dead
The title characters, flesh-eating zombies, stalk the living (human and animal) in this chilling new series. It's a gory, ghoulish goulash of horror, action-adventure and drama, with a sprinkling of macabre humor. Andrew Lincoln stars as sheriff's deputy Rick Grimes, who awakens from a coma into a nightmarish, apocalyptic world overrun with these rapacious, stumbling, staggering "walkers." They are quite the scary bunch. Rick wants to find his wife and son, so he heads to Atlanta, which is rumored to be a safe haven. And the game is on. — Ray Stackhouse

Gaby might have bitten off more than she could easily chew last week when she gave Bob the OK to track down her real daughter. In any event, Carlos certainly thinks so, and you're likely to see if he's right tonight when you meet the Sanchez family. You can also look for the Bree-Renee smackdown over Keith (Brian Austin Green) to intensify; and you'll see Susan in her Va-Va-Broom get-up in places where she won't want anyone, especially Mike, to see her. Mike and Susan are also losing their tenants: Paul Young buys back the house he shared with his late first wife, Mary Alice. — Paul Droesch

CSI: Miami's move to Sunday was a good one for CBS.
Miami drew 11.8 million viewers, according to overnight Nielsen estimates. Even though the show was down 26 percent in the 18-to-49 demographic from its premiere on Monday last year, the series was up 52 percent in the demo over Cold Case's premiere on Sunday last fall.

This week we are in East Setauket, NY building a home for the Lutz Family. What's really amazing about this family is that they're a family of 18 adopted kids — six of those children have Down syndrome.
Kathleen, the eldest, took over the care of her siblings when their parents passed away. She has been holding this family together and it's been a lot of work for her. The work that Kathleen does in caring for her siblings is absolutely phenomenal. With Down syndrome, these kids will never be able to go out into the real world, live on their own or have real jobs. So this week, we're bringing the real world to them.
To quote Extreme Makeover: Home Edition's Ty Pennington, talk about bringing down the house.
For its second show of the season, the sobfest took a break from rebuilding floors and walls to raise the roof when guest Kristin Chenoweth stopped by for a little song and dance. Aside from Brian Austin Green on Desperate Housewives, it was the cutest thing on TV last night....

Hot Dog Eating Contest
Hot Dog Eating Contest
Along with fireworks and parades, no coverage of America's Independence Day is complete without footage of Joey Chestnut, an otherwise ordinary-looking kid from California, scarfing down the winning hot dogs at the Nathan's Famous International contest on Coney Island. A three-time defending champ, Chestnut has become to competitive eating what Roger Federer is to tennis, and may not have rival Takeru Kobayashi to beat this time around, as the event's former king was locked in a contract dispute with organizers from Major League Eating. Now, that's cause for indigestion.
