The half-hour series showcases the most tumultuous situations (through re-enactments of many of the actual confrontations) that Howard and his team have faced since starting their property management business more than a decade ago, taking viewers inside the process that allows the evictors to legally resolve each dispute on behalf of their clients.

#16 - Catch a Contractor

Each year, millions of Americans set out to renovate their property in hopes of finally achieving their dream home. Sadly, thousands of these unsuspecting homeowners instead become victims, duped and abandoned by the contractors they trusted their savings to and left with either unfinished or danger-laden, uninhabitable homes due to poor craftsmanship. Host and master carpenter Adam Carolla and his team, consisting of no-nonsense, expert contractor Skip Bedell and his wife, private investigator Alison Bedell, are on a mission to track down these shady, evasive contractors and drag them back to the scene of the crime to face the music and fix the disasters they left behind. Eleven half-hour episodes of "Catch A Contractor" debut starting Sunday, March 9 at 10PM ET/PT with two back-to-back new episodes on Spike TV. Home improvement scams have consistently ranked in the Better Business Bureau's top 10 consumer cons. Carolla, who spent 10 years working in construction before his successful career in radio and television, takes this issue very personally. As a passionate master carpenter who has built hundreds of homes including his own, he not only has a keen eye when it comes to identifying shoddy, inferior work, but loathes seeing trusting and naïve average citizens getting scammed by subpar contractors and left holding the proverbial bag.

#20 - Ren & Stimpy Adult Party Cartoon

In 2002, John K. received a phone call from a cable channel called TNN (now Spike TV). TNN was struggling against other channels and decided to give the creator a new chance. In June of 2003, Ren and Stimpy returned with 3 all-new episodes (which used plots developed for the original Nick show), plus the classic episodes the way they were meant to be seen. The show continues the adventures of the duo from the cult classic cartoon series, placing them in a completely No-Nickelodeon-Censorship universe. Originally 6 episodes were due to appear during the summer of 2003 but were delayed for a year along with the rest of Spike's "Strip" (mainly because of the extremely risque "Naked Beach Frenzy" episode). Spike TV planned to bring the show back with the final remaining episodes on August 20th, 2004, but instead delayed the series once again and canceled the series in early December.
