The return of ABC's reality show Extreme Makeover lasted one week.

The network has pulled the plastic surgery series after one low-rated airing in the 8 p.m. Friday slot. Beginning November 3, ABC will return to the scheduling pattern from earlier in the season, airing a repeat of Grey's Anatomy in the opening hour of prime time.

Additionally, ABC has set February 7 as a return date for the hit drama Lost. The first portion of the adventure series' third season is slated to end November 8, with new series Day Break scheduled to air in Lost's 9 p.m. Wednesday slot starting November 15.

When it returns February 7, Lost is scheduled to run with all-original episodes through the end of the season.

In another scheduling move, ABC is bringing the legal drama Boston Legal to its original 10 p.m. Sunday slot November 26 for a special airing of the opening of a two-part episode. The conclusion is slated to run November 28 in Boston Legal's regular 10 p.m. Tuesday slot.
