ABC may have pulled the plug on "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" (Fri., 8PM ET on ABC), but there are still a few makeovers yet to see before the January 13, 2012 series finale. And with extreme makeovers comes extreme guests. This week, the band Journey got involved in the gift drive for the Rhodes family, even putting on a concert for some of the team.
Their hit "Don't Stop Believin'" is a perfect anthem for the show, and for this family in particular. When Ty Pennington and his bullhorn showed up at the front door, Dad ran out and dropped to his knees saying that he never stopped believing.
The Rhodes couldn't believe the final product when they saw their now-staggering three-story home. And they really couldn't believe it when it was revealed that their mortgage had been paid in full.
While the Rhodes didn't stop believing, ABC stopped believing in the diminishing returns for the nine-year old reality series. After a dip in the ratings on Sundays, the show was relocated to Friday nights. At this point, fans should have suspected that the series was in trouble.
Pennington fans need not worry, though, as he'll be kicking off his next gig three short days after the final "EM:HE" airs. On Monday, January 16, 2012 at 2PM ET, Pennington will be one of the hosts on ABC's new health and lifestyle daytime talk show, "The Revolution."
