ABC has pulled the plug on "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition."

The show's host and star Ty Pennington will say, "Move that bus," for one of the last times on the series finale, which airs Fri., Jan. 13 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC. The two-hour episode of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" will feature the team rebuilding seven homes in seven days in tornado-torn Joplin, Missouri.

Following the finale, the show will return to ABC with four specials.

The Emmy-winning reality series has rebuilt more than 200 homes across the 50 state over its nine years on ABC. The network moved "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" to Fridays following several successful years on Sundays. In its new timeslot, the show failed to attract a large audience.

Big names have flocked to "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" over the years, including Michelle Obama, Keith Urban, Mariah Carey, Glenn Close, Tyler Perry, Mary J. Blige, Carrie Underwood, David Duchovny, Kobe Bryant, Magic Johnson, Usher, KISS, Rihanna, Jessica Alba and Derek Jeter.

But Pennington isn't going anywhere. The former "Trading Spaces" carpenter will move to ABC's daytime lifestyle show "The Revolution," alongside Tim Gunn.
