ABC has decided to pull the plug on the Extreme Makeover spin-off Extreme Makeover: Home Edition with host Ty Pennington.
The reality series first debuted back in 2003. After finding a home on the Sunday night line-up, ABC switched the series to Fridays and unfortunately the move could be the reason ratings dropped heavily for the show.
With the series in its ninth season, the network plans to finish out this year and isn’t looking to continue with a tenth season. They are however looking to air special episodes of Pennington’s show, but have yet to give an official date for fans.
The final two episodes, one of which will also mark the team’s 200th episode on air, will feature the cast building seven homes in seven days, helping those that suffered from the tornados in Joplin, Missouri. ABC plans to air the final two episodes, “Gibbs Family” and “Joplin, Missouri,” January 6 and January 13, respectively at 8pm.
In the meantime fans of Ty Pennington can catch the host during the day with his new gig on The Revolution, a new talk show that will premiere on ABC on January 16th.
