American Dream Builders: Season Two Renewal or Cancelled Soon?

Extreme Makeover: Home Edition was a staple on Sunday nights on ABC for nearly a decade. The show’s ratings faded over the years and the network decided it was time to end the show. NBC recently unveiled their own home renovation program, American Dream Builders. Is this series a hit or will it be cancelled after one season instead?

On American Dream Builders, two teams of designers and builders from around the country must work together to perform major renovations on a pair of homes. Their work is judged and designers/builders are eliminated from the competition. The judges are Nate Berkus, Eddie George, and Monica Pedersen.

American Dream Builders season two or cancelled?The show debuted on March 23rd to a 0.9 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 3.6 million total viewers. This was a poor showing right out of the gate and the numbers got worse and worse for the next two episodes.

In early April, NBC aired the fourth episode on a Monday night, following their most-successful show The Voice. The episode drew a 1.5 rating with 5.1 million viewers. While those numbers were a big improvement, they were still pretty poor.

Most who tuned in for that special episode apparently didn’t feel particularly inclined to tune in for the next regular Sunday night episode because the ratings dropped lower. The numbers for subsequent installments were even worse. It’s currently the lowest-rated show on the network.

NBC has moved American Dream Builders to the 7pm timeslot and the network seems to be just burning off the remaining episodes at this point. They will pre-empt this week’s episode with an expanded edition of Dateline.

With such poor ratings, there’s no way that they’ll be renewing it for a second season. On the positive side, it seems likely that they will still air the three remaining episodes and bring this competition series to a close.

But, what do you think? Do you think American Dream Builders should be cancelled or renewed for a second season?

I Love the show…I enjoyed watching experienced designers and home builders — against one another as they come up with creative home transformations. The show should have another chance. I loved watching it. I hope the show “American Dream Builders” isn’t cancelled. Try adding the Viewers point of view through “TEXT”. Let the Viewers compete for a home transformation….THAT SHOULD GET THE RATINGS UP!! Who would not want to win that? I know I would love to win it. Please stay on the air. Thanks
