Now the good part. Let’s look at what was renewed, cut, and of course, what new show ABC will offer us this new season.

SHOWS RENEWED:

    Boston Legal – No surprises there. I actually do not follow Boston Legal, so I don’t have much to say about it. I’m sure lots of people are happy though.
    Ugly Betty and Grey’s Anatomy – Betty will be back this fall on its regular night. 😀 I love Ugly Betty, followed by Grey’s Anatomy. I am glad ABC is keeping those two shows in the same slots on Thursday Nights. I love my Thursday nights!
    Men in Trees – Again, not a show that I watch, but I heard good things about it. Now that it’s getting a second season, I might have to rent the first season. Summer Homework!
    Desperate Housewives and Brothers & Sisters – Oh, ABC, how can I thank you enough for leaving my Sunday nights intact?! It has become a habit of mine to watch Desperate Housewives and Brothers & Sisters on Sunday nights.
    October Road – Honestly, I didn’t start watching October Road because I thought it would get canceled and didn’t feel like getting emotionally involved in a show that would be ripped from under me. I guess I was wrong because October Road is getting a second season. More summer homework!
    Notes From The Underbelly – Again, I show I do not watch. Wow, and people say that I watch everything, I am beginning to think I am actually not as obsessed as I thought.

SHOWS THAT GOT CANCELED 🙁 :

Always, the hardest part.

I have to say that I actually wasn’t watching any of the shows that got canceled. Wow, I am so happy that none of those cuts will affect me. (Sorry for those out there crying right now…).

    What About Brian – Not really surprised. I used to watch What About Brian, that was up until the middle of this season. I just thought the show was getting very dull and corny. I just didn’t care about any characters anymore. So, I am sorry for the fans, but I will not miss What About Brian.
    George Lopez, Knights of Prosperity, In Case of Emergency, Six Degrees and According to Jim – Never watched any of these shows, except Six Degrees, which I stopped watching after a few episodes.


NEW SHOWS:

ABC added a lot of new shows. I am not sure if that’s a good idea because you know that most of those will get canceled. Too much competition out there! Oh well, may the best win! Here they are, ABC’s new shows:

    Pushing Daisies – From Bryan Fuller (Heroes) and Barry Sonnenfeld (Men in Black), Pushing Daisies is the story of Ned, a man who can bring dead things back to life. Ned puts his power to use by helping an investigator solve murder cases. To complicate things, Ned brings his childhood sweetheart, Chuck, back from the dead and keeps her alive. Chuck encourages Ned to use his powers to help more people. BUT, here is the twist, Ned can never touch Chuck again otherwise she’ll go back to being dead, forever.
    Private Practice – We all know what this is, from Shonda Rhimes, the creator of Grey’s Anatomy, here is the spin-off that we talked about so much. We already had a preview of what it will look like during Grey’s Anatomy two-hour episode. If you liked it, then tune in and follow Addison Forbes Montgomery as she heads to Los Angeles for new stories.
    Dirty, Sexy Money – This show stars Peter Krause (Six Feet Under) as Nick George, an idealistic lawyer, who’s father’s death forces him to take over as the personal lawyer of the Darling Family, a very wealthy family. Needless to say that Nick will find himself involved in some dubious doings. I guess there is always a price to pay for money!
    Eli Stone – Eli Stone is a lawyer who represents powerful clients. The thing is, Eli could be a prophet. After experiencing a few hallucinations, Eli tries to find the deeper meaning of life. However, when Eli discovers an aneurysm in his brain, he wonders if he is just sick or if he really has a higher calling.
    Eli Stone is brought to us by Greg Berlanti (producer of Everwood and Brothers & Sisters)
    Women’s Murder Club – Four women in San Francisco – a detective, a district attorney, a medical examiner and a reporter – use their expertise to solve murder cases. Based on a book by James Patterson.
    Cashmere Mafia – Lucy Liu stars in Cashemer Mafia about four ambitious women, who’ve been best friends since business school, trying to balance their careers and personal lives.
    Big Shots – It follows four friends, who also happen to be CEOs, and their dysfunctional life as they find comfort in their friendship. This show brings Michael Vartan back to the small screen.
    Carpoolers – A comedy about four guys who commute daily on their way to work. On the way, they talk about their lives, jobs and families.
    Cavemen – We all have seen the Geico Insurance commercials with the Cavemen. Well, this show brings them to half-hour television, when three Cavemen living in Atlanta, try to be accepted and treated as normal people.
    Sam I Am – Christina Applegate is Samantha “Sam” Newly, a woman who wakes ups from an eight day coma with no recollection of who she is. She eventually discovers that she wasn’t a good person. Now she needs to resist the temptation of falling back into her old ways.
    Miss/Guided – Rebecca Freely returns to her high school to be a guidance counslar. Unfortunately, Rebecca’s old nemesis, Lisa (a former cheerleader) also returns as the new English teacher.
