New Weekly Celebrity Sleepover Talk Show After SNL; Raven-Symoné Heads to HGTV Series

Celebrity Sleepover

It's time for the ultimate slumber party and you're invited! LXTV, the Emmy-winning production company, and a part of NBC and Telemundo Owned Stations, announced the launch of Celebrity Sleepover, an entirely different kind of interview show, hosted by 1st Look and reality star Johnny 'Bananas' Devenanzio. The new weekly show, launching Saturday, April 3 on NBC Owned & Affiliate stations (check local listings), is comprised of four fun-filled installments, and is a place where your friends are your favorite celebrities, the games are for adults only, and you can eat and be merry to your heart's content.

Guests include actress and host Tiffani Thiessen (April 3), The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Cynthia Bailey (April 10), music icon Sammy Hagar (April 17), Grammy and Emmy-nominated comedian and musician Margaret Cho (April 24), and Worst Cooks In America chef Anne Burrell (April 3 & 24). In a nod to Johnny’s own reality TV roots, he’ll also be joined by casts from The Real World NY Reunion (April 17) and The Challenge All Stars (April 24)-- Johnny, a The Real World: Key West alum, has appeared on 20 seasons of The Challenge. Shot from his own living room, Johnny remains the life of the party, and invited guests and viewers get to take part in every sleepover challenge imaginable. Whether he’s competing in the ultimate food dare, sharing the spookiest story, dabbling in the kitchen to create the best in midnight munchies, or mastering the most elegant cocktail, Johnny gives fans a reason to stay up late.

Celebrity Sleepover will air following Saturday Night Live on NBC-owned television stations: WNBC in New York; KNBC in Los Angeles; WMAQ in Chicago; WCAU in Philadelphia; KXAS in Dallas-Fort Worth; KNTV in the San Francisco Bay Area; WRC-TV in Washington, D.C.; WTVJ in Miami-Fort Lauderdale; KNSD in San Diego and WVIT in Hartford and on more than 200 NBC affiliates across the country (check local listings for airtimes). Celebrity Sleepover will also be available to watch on demand.

HGTV has greenlighted a new one-hour pilot, What Not To Design (wt), starring singer, actress and design enthusiast Raven-Symoné (That's So Raven, Raven's Home, The Cosby Show). Based on the wildly popular TLC show What Not To Wear, the pilot follows Raven and her team of experts, designer Nina Ferrer and craftsman James Worsham, as they lead a style intervention to overhaul home design disasters. From homes with outdated, over-the-top decor to ones with out-of-control memorabilia collections, the houses – and the owners – are in for a major change. During the pilot, Raven and her team will meet with homeowners who are stuck in a style rut. They will survey what items to keep, toss and sell online to maximize the budget. After that, it’s out with the old as the rooms are emptied of everything, including carpet, drapes and wallpaper.
