ABC on Wednesday picked up freshmen shows Ugly Betty, Brothers & Sisters, and Men in Trees for a second season.
The network also renewed Grey's Anatomy, Lost, Boston Legal, Desperate Housewives, Dancing With the Stars, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, The Bachelor, and Jimmy Kimmel Live.
The early votes of confidence for Men in Trees and Boston Legal were somewhat of a surprise. Remaining on the fence is another drama with limited following, sophomore show What About Brian.
Caaaaat fiiiiiiiiight! In the blue corner, we have Hollywood sweetheart America Ferrera, star of ABC's Ugly Betty and an all-around adored actress. And in the fiery redhead corner, we have Lindsay Lohan, known party girl, rehab regular, and woman of loose morals, so to speak. What happened? Read on for juicy details...
Lindsay Lohan's life has been put under the lens of a microscope (or, more accurately, the lens of the paparazzi) ever since the 21-year-old actress began overtly flaunting her hard-partying ways.
