More changes are on the way for ABC. The network has announced that "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition's" ninth season finale will also be the end of the series.
On January 13, the show will attempt its biggest build ever, according to ABC, by constructing seven homes in seven days in Joplin, Missouri. The area was devastated by a tornado in May of this year.
The week preceding, on January 6, "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" will touch down in Iowa to build a new home for the Gibbs family.
But after the January 13 finale, "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" will live on only in the form of specials.
Perhaps ABC is clearing out the old to make way for the new: The network is also parting ways with "Desperate Housewives" and "One Life to Live" in 2012. Are you surprised to see "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" come to an end as a series?
