Stars better keep those
Dancing shoes shined, and wives better be wary: ABC announced its renewal of five unscripted shows, including
Dancing with the Stars.
Along with DWTS, the net said Thursday that it's bringing back Wife Swap, Supernanny, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition and America's Funniest Home Videos - for its 19th season (!). Conspicuously absent from the list was that Dancing-like newbie Dance Wars, which never quite got moving. Don't worry about the mate-seekers being left out - following the upcoming season of the Bachelor (with that smokin' British leading man), the show will be swapped out next season with a new version of The Bachelorette.
ABC's roster of five confirms the renewal of its veteran unscripteds, and repeats a similar move last year, when it beat its competitors to the renewal-announcement punch. - Anna Dimond
