ABC Shelves 'Extreme Makeover'S' Return; Comedies to Fill in for 'The One'
By Brian Ford Sullivan (TFC)

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- Just hours after canceling "The One: Making a Music Star," ABC has yanked another of its summer entries - the fourth season of "Extreme Makeover."

The series had been set to return to the Alphabet's schedule after a yearlong hiatus on Thursday, August 3 at 8:00/7:00c. Additional repeats of "Grey's Anatomy" will instead fill the hour through the end of the month.

No reason was given for the change. "Makeover" will now presumably be used as a midseason replacement on the network's 2006-07 season schedule, however nothing has been confirmed.

As for "The One," scheduling updates released by the network this afternoon indicate various comedy repeats will fill the show's Tuesday, 9:00/8:00c and Wednesday, 8:00/7:00c slots for the rest of the summer.

To review, here's a breakdown of ABC's affected nights:

Tuesdays (as of August 1)
8:00/7:00c - "According to Jim" (Repeats)
8:30/7:30c - "According to Jim" (Repeats)
