Extreme Makeover: Home Edition canceled

ABC has decided to cancel Extreme Makeover: Home Edition after nine feel-good seasons; airing their last weekly episode on January 13, 2012.

It will be the 200th episode that will have aired and marking an end to its ninth season. The beloved series changed thousands of lives, bringing communities together and touching the hearts of its viewers. The final episode will conclude with Tornado-Ravaged Joplin, Missouri.
 
Michael Moloney, globally-renowned home design expert has been alongside the EM:HE family throughout the nine seasons. The journey has affected him personally and has been a life-changer for him. He released the following statement:
 
“For nine seasons, I was blessed to have been given the opportunity to change lives across the globe with the help of loving communities, generous sponsors, and a cast that has become my second family. I will cherish the nine years with Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, for the accolades we’ve received [EM:HE has taken home two Emmy Awards and two People’s Choice Awards for “Outstanding Reality Programming,” and was named “Most Positive Show in the World” by the U.N.], but even more for the economic and social epidemics we worked so feverishly to tackle, and the stigmas we so tirelessly aimed to erase. I was lucky to have this show as a perpetual reminder of my own blessings, but my work won’t stop with the end of the series. It is with a somber heart I close this chapter, but with such excitement I begin the next one. I have EM:HE to thank for the platform I have to continue doing good work and great design in 2012 and on.”

Extreme Makeover: Home Edition DVD

One of the most popular TV shows on today has been the highly watched home improvement show on ABC-TV, "Extreme Makeover."

For the first time ever, EXTREME MAKEOVER: HOME EDITION, winner of the Emmy®-Award for Outstanding Reality Program 2005, comes to DVD. All the unforgettable families and the inspirational stories of this heartwarming show are ready to take home, just in time for the holidays.

The design team: (left to right) Constance Ramos (building/planning), Michael Moloney (interiors), Ty Pennington (team leader), Paul DiMeo (carpenter), Tracy Hutson (shopping/style), Preston Sharp (exteriors/big ideas). EXTREME MAKEOVER: HOME EDITION: THE MOST INSPIRING AND UNFORGETTABLE MAKEOVERS FROM SEASON 1 is available on DVD.

Experience the most unbelievable transformations from the incredible first season of the TV series that builds hope and changes lives, then go behind the makeovers with exclusive bonus features.

Bonus features for EXTREME MAKEOVER: HOME EDITION include: “Construction of Extreme Makeover Home Edition” - a behind-the-scenes featurette where fans can learn how this amazing show makes it to television every week; hilarious bloopers and outtakes; “Rest and Relaxation” – witness the hijinks and crazy antics with the cast on the set; and “Preston and Paul,” a fun montage of banter between two on-set designers.

Ty Pennington Extreme Makeover crewPut together one very run-down house, a deserving family, several opinionated designers, seven days and what do you get? The answer is Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.

The show’s wildly successful first season garnered an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Reality Program.

Each episode features a race against time on a project that would ordinarily take at least four months to achieve, involving a team of designers, contractors and several hundred workers who have just seven days to totally rebuild an entire house – every single room, plus the exterior and landscaping.

The lives of the lucky families are forever changed when they learn that they have been selected to have their home walls moved, floors replaced and even the facades radically changed. The result should be a decorator’s delight... if it can be done on time!

Each episode begins with home improvement team leader Ty Pennington’s now famous “good morning!” wake-up call, when he, along with the other designers, surprises the unsuspecting family with news that their home has been chosen to receive a makeover.

Then viewers witness not only the unbelievable transformation of the house, but during the final and emotional reveal, they see how the home makeover has impacted the lives of the deserving families.

The design team who work their creative magic on the home are team leader Ty Pennington, Paul DiMeo, (carpentry/nuts & bolts), Paige Hemmis (carpentry/creativity), Tracy Hutson (shopping/style), Michael Moloney (interiors/glamour), Constance Ramos (building/planning), and Preston Sharp (exteriors/big ideas).

EXTREME MAKEOVER: HOME EDITION is available for $29.99 (SRP) on a 2-disc DVD from Buena Vista Home Entertainment.
