Yup. Same network and two awesome shows that they've cancelled in the past year. Candy Finnegan never said anything anti gay! Matt Paxton either!!!

Speaking of that, they probably didn't have a lot of problems with BIOGRAPHY either!

p.s. When you do an image search for "Intervention" you mostly get rifles.

ETA:

And yes, the shows had controversies. They both have exploitation aspects. The criticisms of Intervention that go alongside Celebrity Rehab are a little off since the actual therapy is done off camera. It was (sniff) more of a process show that highlighted how the families prepared an intervention and how the subject reacted.

Hoarders is a little more iffy in that the complete haul away is potentially a lot more traumatic and played for drama (Hoarding: Buried Alive initially had a more progressive approach showing the hoarder with their therapist and organizer over a series of weeks/months). However, the illness of not being in touch with their environment has more possibilities with the GRAPHIC EXPOSE style. Follow-up episodes always provided me with better overall feelings about their approach.

ETA: A&E also had (has?) Dog the Bounty Hunter had it's own racist controversy so the network isn't totally new to this game.
