On the reality - sorry, "unscripted" - side of things, viewers can look forward to more of: The Bachelor, Dancing With the Stars, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, Wife Swap, Supernanny and America's Funniest Home Videos.

If your favorite ABC series is now included on this list - we're looking at you, fans of Samantha Who?, Better Off Ted, The Unusuals, Castle and Cupid - don't worry... yet.

Any or all of these could still be picked up before the ABC upfront presentation to advertisers on May 19.
