It’s the end of the home makeover era!
ABC announced the decision to cancel “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” hosted by Ty Pennington after nine seasons. The show will go out with a bang in what promises to be a heartbreaking, tear-jerking 200th episode on January 13, 2012.
Interior designer Michael Moloney 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 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.”
“Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” kicked off with an average of 16 million viewers back in 2005, which had been gradually decreasing to less than 9 million last season. ABC announced the Emmy-winning series will return for a few periodic TV specials.
