This just in from the Alphabet:

"ABC Television Network today announced early pickups for the 2007-08 season for new breakout series Brothers & Sisters, Men in Trees and Ugly Betty, as well as returning hits The Bachelor, Boston Legal, Dancing with the Stars, Desperate Housewives, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, Grey's Anatomy, Jimmy Kimmel Live and Lost.

"These series join previously announced [pickups of] America's Funniest Home Videos, Supernanny and Wife Swap."

Chin up, Erika Christensen, it's early yet. Worst case, "Montgomery's Ward" could always use a 27th female cast member.
