Oh boy! ABC is trying to show NBC what's what!
The network has officially picked up a new reality series, called Secret Millionaire, set to air on the Sunday night time slot normally filled by Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, starting March 6th!
The show, which is based on a UK series, is similar to the CBS reality series Undercover Boss, and will feature successful US business men under cover in some of the country's poverty-stricken areas for a week. On the last day, they will reveal their true identities, and donate large amounts of money to those with whom they spent their time!
Sounds like just a big a tear-jerker as Extreme Makeover: Home Edition! Which means it will be just as big a hit!

Ty Pennington's contract with ABC's Extreme Makeover: Home Edition ends in spring of 2012 and now his team is working on getting the host a daytime show as well.
They're looking into other networks besides ABC and are hoping for a transition similar to Joy Behar's from daytime to primetime who also kept both time slots on The View on ABC and her own show on HLN.
Audience research suggests he'd do well with a daytime show and we don't see why not!
He's a hit considering his Q scores run higher than all daytime hosts aside from Ellen DeGeneres!
Do U want to see Ty on daytime?
