The ABC 2006 fall line up has been announced and it looks like this fall might be the start of another great season for the Disney owned Network. With shows like ‘Lost’ and ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ returning, not to mention some of the new ABC shows that’ll be premiering, it wont be a surprise if viewers start to notice dust collecting on their remote controls.

Not all of ABC’s shows were hits this season. ‘Commander in Chief’ and ‘Invasion’ have been cancelled in order to make room for some of the new dramas that look like they might have a bit more success in the ratings. J.J. Abrams’ (‘Lost’, ‘Alias’) new show, ‘Six Degrees’ could be the show that makes ABC the network to watch on Thursday Nights. ‘Six Degrees’ will follow ‘Grey’s Anatomy’, which will be settling into it’s new timeslot of 9-10 pm on Thursday evenings. The new show ‘Brothers and Sisters’ will be taking over the ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ timeslot on Sunday night’s at 10 pm. It’s likely the network is hoping the new show will be able to mooch off Desperate Housewives’ large fan base with the same success that ‘Anatomy’ had.

Much Love to Entertainment Weekly for providing the line-up in list-form. New shows are listed in CAPS.
