    UPFRONTS: ABC

    ABC released its 2007-08 prime-time schedule today.

    Returning: Grey's Anatomy, Ugly Betty, October Road, Notes from the Underbelly, Men In Trees, Brothers & Sisters, Wife Swap, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, Desperate Housewives, The Bachelor, Dancing with the Stars, Lost, Supernanny, America's Funniest Home Videos, Boston Legal, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, 20/20, Primetime (specials and special series)

    Out: The Nine, Six Degrees, The Great American Dream Vote, Show Me The Money, Day Break, In Case of Emergency, The Knights of Prosperity, What About Brian, George Lopez, According to Jim (finally!)

    New: Big Shots, Carpoolers, Cashmere Mafia, Eli Stone, Dirty Sexy Money, Cavemen, Miss/Guided, Private Practice, Pushing Daisies, Sam I Am, Women's Murder Club, Oprah's Big Give

    Moving: Men In Trees moves from Thursdays at 10 to Fridays at 8. Notes from the Underbelly and October Road (along with Cashmere Mafia) will premiere when Dancing with the Stars and The Bachelor end their seasons. Lost will begin airing in February and show no repeats, in a Wednesday time slot that's still to be determined.

    My Thoughts:

    I have no problem with the decision to cancel the following shows: The Nine, Six Degrees, The Great American Dream Vote, Show Me The Money, Day Break, In Case of Emergency, The Knights of Prosperity, What About Brian, George Lopez, According to Jim.

    I could care less that the following shows exist: Grey's Anatomy, Ugly Betty, Notes from the Underbelly, Men In Trees, Brothers & Sisters, Wife Swap, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, Desperate Housewives, The Bachelor, Dancing with the Stars, Supernanny, America's Funniest Home Videos, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, 20/20, Primetime.

    I'm pretty sure I have no desire to see any of the following: Big Shots, Carpoolers, Cashmere Mafia, Eli Stone, Dirty Sexy Money, Cavemen, Miss/Guided, Private Practice, Pushing Daisies, Sam I Am, Women's Murder Club, Oprah's Big Give.

    I'm glad the following are returning: Lost, Boston Legal, Octorber Road (although I've only seen one episode of this, but I have like 6 in the queue and still want to see how it develops.)

    ORIINALLY POSTED BY MATT. Erased by accident when I deleted the double post.

    The Andy Barker show was pretty good. not great, but good.

    I'm glad My Name Is Earl is staying, but I hope they can keep up the writing? I'm waiting for the "talent show episode." It'll come soon.

    Looking forward to new Weeds and Dexter in the coming months, as well.

    I'm actually a huge fan of My Name is Earl. However, the last few episodes that have gone against the formula are a mixed bag for me.

    The only thing I care about on ABC is Lost. I am on this train till it stops, even if it jumps the shark (or has it?).
