ABC has canceled the Emmy-winning reality show‘Extreme Makeover: Home Edition’s,' hosted by Ty Pennington, due to dropping ratings.
The network said, that the makeover show won’t be permanently off the air, it will return with occasional specials.
“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,” interior designer Michael Moloney said in a statement. “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.”
The show’s 200th and final episode will show the team building homes for victims of the devastating tornado that tore through Joplin, Mo., in May. The series finale will air on Jan. 13.
Don’t worry about Pennington, he will not be on the unemployment line, he has landed a slot on the new day-time series, “The Revolution,” which launches Jan. 16.
