 Burning Love: ‘Burning Down the House” 

A-

In its short time on this earth, Burning Love, produced by Ben Stiller’s Red Hour Digital, has scorched its name across the web content scene. Premiering in 2012, two seasons have already run on Yahoo! Screen: The show has won awards, been edited into a TV-friendly format, and brought mainstream comedy talent to the web.

Not only does “Closet Genius” keep up with TV favorites like TLC’s “What Not to Wear,” but it is far more applicable to daily life. Who hasn’t gained weight only to see their wardrobe stay the same size, or started a new career that requires an entirely new one? “Closet Genius” and celebrity stylist-turned-host, Tanya Gill (who is absolutely charming once you get past her stiff appearance) has the answers.
