The show: Two-to-four-minute mini-episodes chronicle interventions with co-habitating couples who clash over differences in home decor. In one segment, a couple tries to reconcile one's love for Japanese design with the other's fetish for tiger memorabilia. In another, a woman takes issue with her boyfriend's Barack Obama poster hanging in the bedroom. "Obama has to go, baby," she says.

The cast and crew: Celebrity designer Vanessa Deleon and a rotating cast of couples.

The status: Twenty-six episodes so far and still going.

What they're -- or well, we're -- saying: It hasn't caught the attention of many mainstream critics yet, but Your Place Is a Deal Breaker's snappy, light pace and knack for finding colorful characters makes it every bit as entertaining as longer, bigger budget makeover show on TLC.
