In addition to "Alias," "The Bachelor," and "The Bachelorette," the network announced pickups for first-year sitcoms "8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter," "Life With Bonnie" and "Less Than Perfect"; second-year sitcoms "According to Jim" and "George Lopez"; and stalwart "My Wife and Kids." And, they showed their equally strong committment to quality hard-hitting programming by renewing "America's Funniest Home Videos."
