Extreme Makeover Home Edition
For 199 episodes, Ty Pennington and his design team have led a television phenomenon that has helped deserving families in all 50 states. This Friday, January 13, at 8/7c, the 200th episode and series finale of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition airs on ABC. To all who have ever cried or laughed watching an episode of this series over the last nine years, I hope you will set aside the two hours to watch what I believe is the most impressive feat of non-fiction television in a long while. From my experience, no factual television series has attempted to accomplish so much, by so many, for such a good cause, in one single episode.
This week we traveled to Nashville to build a new structure for the Lighthouse School because they've sustained a massive amount of damage during the floods back in June. I think everybody in the country saw on different news stations part of the school floating down the river. I'm from Tennessee, born and raised, and there wasn't anyone who could have looked at that footage and not go, "Oh my gosh."
