TV Land Plans ‘Extreme Makeover’ Takeover


TV Land will air an Extreme Makeover: Home Edition marathon beginning Monday, Sept. 29 through Sunday, Oct. 5, network officials said Monday.

The marathon, which will include episodes featuring stars such as Robin Williams, Susan Lucci and Martina McBride, will air in primetime each day from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. ET.

The show features Ty Pennington and his team of contractors, designers and hundreds of workers, who practically raze the old homes, repair, restore and redesign them, in a lightning fast pace of just one week. 

“Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” fits perfectly in the TV Land primetime lineup,” Larry Jones, president, TV Land, said in a statement. “The show’s theme of redemption and renewal resounds and deeply connects with our viewers in their 40’s and 50’s.”

The hit series, which begins its sixth season on ABC this fall, currently features the design squad of team leader Ty Pennington, with designers Paul DiMeo, Paige Hemmis, Michael Moloney, Ed Sanders, Tracy Hutson, Eduardo Xol, John Littlefield, Rib Hillis and Didiayer.
