ABC starts summer with odds and ends

ABC will air the remaining episodes of Rodney and Commander in Chief as the season winds down and the summer begins.

Rodney swaggers back onto the scene after being gone since February. The sophomore comedy begins wrapping things up at 8:30 p.m., Tuesday, May 30.

That same night sees the triumphant return of Less Than Perfect at 9:30 p.m. Perfect, now in its fourth season, has been away since May 2.

Both Rodney and Less Than Perfect are on the bubble, and ABC's upfront presentation on Tuesday, May 16, will decide their fates.

Finally, the pilot for Freddie can be seen. The sitcom pilot, which was previously unaired, will be shown Wednesday, May 31, at 8:30 p.m. Soak it up Freddie fans--the show is not coming back.

Commander in Chief, which was pulled for the third time in April after returning with dismal numbers during sweeps, will return for the third time on Wednesday, May 31, at 10 p.m. Chief will follow repeats of Lost. The future of Commander is also up in the air, although things aren't looking good for it at this point.

ABC already announced the renewal of the show Boston Legal and the cancellation of Sons and Daughters, Hope and Faith, and Invasion. In keeping with its rule of always having two J.J. Abrams shows on its schedule, it canceled Alias and renewed What About Brian.

ABC never ceases to amaze me! They cancel the best shows (Commander in Chief) and keep the garbage around for years. The only ones to blame for the low ratings Commander in Chief got after the loooooong hiatuses is ABC!!!

Bring back Commander In Chief!!! Its one of the best shows on all the networks. If they would only show the episodes consecutively the rating would show up. The show beats many dumb dramas out there now.

I really hope that Commander In Chief will have good ratings now that most of the primetime shows have had their respective season/series finales. It really is a good show and should be given another chance. It's a shame to can a show with a unique concept and a dream cast. Geena Davis is absolutely wonderful as the commander in chief.

Invasion was awesome. How an they cancel it?! I'm glad to see What about Brian returning along with my favorite show on TV, Boston Legal (I hate James Spader and William Shatner individually, but put them together and they are pure gold!).

Freddie was definately one of the better three-camera sitcoms out there... Good Riddance to Hope and Faith though, I caught the Regis episode because that guy is freakin' funny and boy that episode was so not
