As usual, it sounded like a good idea on paper. Take the ABC hit "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" to England and tape a special episode there.
Turns out one of the big problems was getting the Brits into the show’s high energy.
"The British are so polite, they are afraid of ruffling each other’s feathers. They had to take the time to discuss it properly," complains show host Ty Pennington in this Reuters article.
The episode airs this Sunday, Aug. 2.
