ABC: Thankfully All Fall Programming Won't Be Reality Shows
ABC has renewed 'Alias' and 8 comedies for this upcoming Fall season. seems as though '8 simple Rules' has done quite well. I never watched it but I know Ritter is good and he can carry a show.
The network has made this decision 3 months earlier than normal which is a boon to the show's creators allowing them the time to better craft the shows.
