ABC Renews "Brothers & Sisters" and "Men In Trees"
You knew "Ugly Betty" was a given, but ABC also just announced they were renewing the on-the-bubble shows "Brothers & Sisters" (which apparently has improved mightily on the creative end since it debuted) and "Men In Trees," another fave of the execs that didn't show much traction in the ratings. "Boston Legal" -- another show that was iffy -- is also back, as are the usual suspects ("Dancing With The Stars," "Desperate Housewives," "Grey's Anatomy" and god help us "The Bachelor"). "Lost" was also a given but unfortunately they didn't announce that season four would be the final season of the show -- that would be the best thing for it creatively and ratings-wise. Here's hoping NBC shows similar faith in "Friday Night Lights."
