Review | HGTV Design Star

AIR DATE: Sunday 9/6

On the penultimate episode of the talent contest, the top three finalists must each create a spiffy space for the likes of Kathy Griffin (who wants an office that oozes "Zen"), Tiffani Thiessen (who requests a guest bedroom with sustainable furniture) and Jason Priestley (he and his wife crave a "beachy" nursery for their newborn boy).

Watching contestants hunt for the right fabric, even for celebs, isn't always riveting — and Star's own look could benefit from a bigger budget. Still, tension and creativity abound in this pleasant time-passer. (HGTV, 10 P.M.)
