Better Half premiered on BRV on October 3, 2007. This series explore creative professions. In each episode, the spouses/mates of two trained professionals such as chefs, comedians, party planners, and hairstylists square off in competition. The professionals have two days to coach their novice partner to take on their jobs and beat the opposing "better half" in a final challenge. Each week, three judges renowned in the featured line of work will assess how well each couple executed the job handoff. Skilled in managing her own "better half," the outspoken and honest Essman will shadow, needle and critique how the couples listen, learn and love without killing each other first.
