ABC burns off final three Extreme Makeover episodes starting tonight

ABC’s Extreme Makeover will air its final three episodes starting tonight at 9 p.m. ET. These final constitute the show’s fourth season, which is just four episodes long.

You’ll recall that the network tried to air this season last summer, canceling it after just one episode.

Tonight’s episode features a “legally blind woman” and a “below-the-knee amputee,” the second episode follows “four obsese teenagers” and a “lobbyist for fitness,” and the July 16 season finale follows the makeover of two volunteer firefighters who are engaged. They’ll all be helped by the “Extreme Team,” including LASIK surgeon Robert Maloney and dentist Bill Dorfman.

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
