ABC spins off Extreme Makeover: Home Edition How’d They Do That? show.
An hour of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, ABC’s most recent reality success story, is clearly not enough, especially when viewers have questions about how they freaking built that amazing house in, like, five days. Thus ABC has created How’d They Do That?, a behind-the-scenes look at how the projects featured in a single episode came together. ABC has already aired one such show on Nov. 2, and will air another on Nov. 29. Starting Jan. 10, it will air as a series Mondays at 8 p.m. ET, and will be followed by The Bachelorette 3, which has been bumped from Wednesdays.
