Tabatha Takes Over was a reality show that aired on Bravo from 2008 to 2014. The show starred Tabatha Coffey, a successful salon owner and hair stylist, who traveled around the United States to help failing businesses get back on track. The show was a spin-off of the hit reality show, Shear Genius, which Tabatha had previously been a part of.

Each episode of Tabatha Takes Over followed the same basic formula. Tabatha would arrive at a business that was struggling to stay afloat, and would spend the first few days observing how the business was being run. She would then offer her professional advice and suggest changes that needed to be made in order for the business to succeed.

Tabatha was often met with resistance from the business owners, who were used to doing things their own way. But Tabatha wasn't afraid to speak her mind and tell people what they needed to hear, even if it wasn't what they wanted to hear. She had a no-nonsense approach that made her a fan favorite.

During the course of the show, Tabatha would take on a range of different businesses, from hair salons to cafes to gyms. She would assess everything from the cleanliness of the facilities to the marketing strategy to the customer service, and would offer suggestions on how the business could improve in all of these areas.

One of the things that made Tabatha Takes Over so popular was the drama that often ensued between Tabatha and the business owners. Many of them were resistant to the changes she suggested, and there were often heated arguments as a result. Tabatha was always calm and rational, even in the face of this resistance, and viewers loved watching her bring order to chaos.

Another thing that made Tabatha Takes Over so compelling was the genuine transformation that often occurred in the businesses that Tabatha worked with. By the end of each episode, the businesses were almost always running more smoothly and efficiently, and the owners had gained a new understanding of how to run a successful business.

Overall, Tabatha Takes Over was a hit with viewers who were drawn to Tabatha's no-nonsense personality and her ability to turn failing businesses around. The show was cancelled in 2014 but it remains a beloved part of Bravo's reality TV lineup.

Tabatha Takes Over is a series that is currently running and has 5 seasons (52 episodes). The series first aired on August 21, 2008.
