As reported by TV critic Alan Sepinwall:
The full list of those shows that will definitely be on the air for the 09-10 season: AMERICA'S FUNNIEST HOME VIDEOS, THE BACHELOR, BROTHERS & SISTERS, DANCING WITH THE STARS, DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES, EXTREME MAKEOVER: HOME EDITION, GREY'S ANATOMY, LOST, PRIVATE PRACTICE, SUPERNANNY, UGLY BETTY and WIFE SWAP.
Missing is all of ABC's new midseason shows (including BETTER OFF TED, CASTLE, CUPID, IN THE MOTHERHOOD, SURVIVING SUBURBIA and THE UNUSUALS) plus SCRUBS, SAMANTHA WHO? and several shows ABC already canceled like LIFE ON MARS. SAMANTHA WHO? and some of the mid-season entries could still wind up on next year's schedule (so, in theory, could SCRUBS, though that seems unlikely with Zach Braff and creator Bill Lawrence both leaving), but ABC still has between now and Upfront Week in late May to make decisions on them.
My Two Cents:
ABC must be struggling creatively when it has to resurrect a long-running sitcom from another network (NBC) when it brought back SCRUBS last fall, when it greenlights a new series based on a flop, 15-episode ABC series from 10 years ago (CUPID), and when half of its schedule is populated with insipid (but sometimes popular) "reality" series that, frankly, make my skin crawl. I will give the network credit for bringing on a few interesting scripted series this season, such as LIFE ON MARS, CASTLE and THE UNUSUALS, yet it was fairly obvious that they would flounder in their timeslots. It will be interesting to see what their fall sked will look like...I'll post it here as soon as it's announced.
