ABC renews 'Brothers & Sisters,' 'DWTS,' 'Desperate,' 'Ugly Betty,' 'Grey's' & more

Sallyfield Though their full fall schedule won't be announced until next month's Upfronts in New York, ABC has given several of its series the early green light for another season.

"America's Funniest Home Videos," "The Bachelor," "Brothers & Sisters," "Dancing with the Stars," "Desperate Housewives," "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition," "Grey's Anatomy," "Private Practice," "Supernanny," "Ugly Betty" and "Wife Swap" will definitely return to entertain you later this year. "Lost" was included in today's renewal announcement as well, even though the network ensured its sixth (and final) season was a lock last year.

All pretty solid performers, none of these shows were really in any danger of dismissal. "Ugly Betty"'s current hiatus did spark cancelation rumors a couple months back, but as I assured you, it was never going anywhere.

So, any thoughts? Questions? Concerns? Happy to hear a few of your favorites are for sure safe?
