The annoyingly cloying Ty Pennington, host of ABC’s “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition,” was arrested over the weekend, on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs. Everyone makes mistakes, of course, but there is something so phony and contrived about this show that I can’t say that I’m surprised. Asking people to tell their sob stories for an excessive new home, when their families or communities have been unable or unwilling to help, strikes me as undignified.
