    Since Extreme Makeover Home Edition is still getting high ratings and you still have the sites up, including Casting. Please bring this show back on the road. It is Far more than entertainment for everyone that is hoping to be helped and those that have volunteered, the series is life changing.

    It was so nice to see that Extreme Makeover Home Edition was back on television. The cast is so good at what they do. It is nice to see a show help people, who volunteer to help other people in need, get the home they desperately need. Please bring this show back. The ratings are so high, to that tells you this is a show that everyone likes. By the way, I am over 49 years old and this is my favorite show on television.
