While the original “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” had a steady viewership each week, once moving to Fridays, executives saw a massive and concerning decline. For instance, one episode aired within the ninth season only attracted 5.1 million viewers, a major drop from previous seasons.
However, that wasn’t the only fact about the home reno series that impacted its cancellation. The show also saw a dip in ratings, via The Wrap, with episodes receiving only a 1.5 out of 5 amongst Friday night audiences between 18 to 49 years of age. Rival shows on ABC like “Once Upon A Time” (which took over the “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” original time slot and doubled in viewership) certainly didn’t help, adding to the decline in ratings each week.
Still, due to its past success, ABC announced, before the series finale aired, that “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” wouldn’t be done entirely. In fact, it would have occasional televised specials, and eventually a reboot, which aired in 2020 on HGTV.
