*Note: Though they’ll be split in half in syndication, the network considers the two-hour installments to be single episodes.

Reference point: The 2010-11 season averaged a 2.2 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 8.21 million viewers.

Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers. These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

    Bring it back everyone I talk to is furious that it was canceled
    It was more than viewers it was doing good in a time the country needs things like this
    I have been lucky enough to do 10 extreme makeovers from 2004 to the last one the Harris family in Tx I was the lead painter volunteer
    If only you network guys would come and do one and feel the true magic
    It’s not the stars , they are great people how ever
    Being I spent a 1000 hours behind the scenes
    The true magic is the local people how they struggle and experience pain and tiredness
    As they would stay up with us for 40 plus hours straight a shift
    To help there friends or family or just because they were great people
    The show always missed the true magic that only if the nation could see and feel what really happens on that set with the fans and voleteers
    I watch a priest he was in his late 70s collapse of exhaustion trying to help the family
    Being there with them as the public hits that 20 hour wall seeing them waking in the rain and mud trying to make that clock
    Seeing priests struggling so red cross doesn’t see them alonst pass out because they want to help finish , the network missed the true magic
    What really happens behind the scenes
    People cry of exhaustion people collapse people meet there demonds after working 40-50 hours straight no voice can’t walk to talk
    All to help a great cause
    Also the true talent of the local artist and people that trully did it all
    If you showed that
    That’s what peoploe want to see
    You must have Ty , women love him
    Paige men love her star power
    Michelal great guy and Polly
    Ed super talented
    Do u know they all really can work and do remarkable things ?
    I’ve seen them
    It should be more about the true reality of what Halle
    With the public more about the feeling of a one mile area blocked off with multiple helicopters over head that energy of the crowds the pressure of that clock
    U all got away from that
    U had a how it’s done that didn’t show how it’s done?!?
    Really take it from Some one who was there
    U guys trully don’t get what America wants
    They want to see the good done
    They want to see the pain and drama
    The creativity and design
    How it really got done
    Not about designers arguing
    I told many people. Thi over the years
    If u guys aired the true reality of what really happens
    That show would regain the top spot
    I’m just a painter but after almost 9 years knowing the team
    Every single person who really works it says the same thing
    Why don’t they show what we all go threw?
    It’s so much more entertaining. Than just the stars
    Do extreme emphizise the clock
    Showcase the family’s and friends. Struggle to make that clock
    Show how the design and true allent gets done
    Show the struggles of average people as they work. 40 hour shift
    The team on that show and design producers are the best of the best
    Show them show the true reality of what it is
    In my opinion the network trully is blind to something that is so American so magical
    They miss it
    It’s America helping its own
    Its the countries top talented designers and local artist
    It’s beinging in Alaska and allinh a radio because we didn’t have enough people and seeing a town rally
    It’s seeing old young man woman with true hearts pushing there bodies to the edge
    It’s the drama of the rain mud what can and does go wrong
    It’s the family of the family that collapses because they forgot to drink fluids
    And pass out because we are trying to flag dry the dry wall mud
    It’s how the most talented Peploe in our country grab normal public people and turn them into rockstars for a week
    I’ve seen and felt the true magic
    If you showed what I saw over my time on set
    U would see why u have it all wrong
    America needs to see America helping its own
    Make it more american
    More local more drama more color and design
    Show America how not only can they make a difference at any age or sex
    But how they too can do these great design and they too an have te magic they see on tv
    I swear if I had any Input the first thing I would change is to show the true reality of what cameras didn’t show
