ABC Sets April Return Dates for Hit Shows
Hot off the press, ABC has finally provided the post-writers strike return dates for new series every other network had last week. What we still don't know: Will marginal players such as Big Shots, Cavemen, Carpoolers, Men In Trees and Women's Murder club ever return? (my money's on WMC and Trees; Cavemen and Carpoolers, not so much)
“Samantha Who?” returns Monday, April 7 (9:30-10:00 p.m., ET) with six original episodes.
“Boston Legal” returns Tuesday, April 8 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) with six original episodes.
“Desperate Housewives” returns Sunday, April 13 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET) with five original episodes and a special two-hour finale (seven hours total).
“Brothers & Sisters” returns Sunday, April 20 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) with four original episodes.
“Grey’s Anatomy” returns Thursday, April 24 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET) with five original episodes.
“Lost” will move to its new 10:00 p.m. time period on Thursday, April 24, with five weeks of original episodes.
“Pushing Daisies,” “Private Practice” and “Dirty Sexy Money” will return next season.
