There has been a ton of news breaks about shows that are being renewed for next year's television season, and there have been some pleasant (and not so pleasant) surprises.

First, the good news. Apparently, ABC has renewed two of my new favorite shows, Castle and Better Off Ted. The experts were expecting Castle to get a second season, but it wasn't a done deal due to OK, but far from stellar ratings. Better Off Ted on the other hand is a huge surprise because everyone had this show flatlining after poor ratings, but apparently ABC gave the smart and funny show a reprieve. Of course, nothing is official until ABC's upfront presentation next week, but it's some encouraging news to say the least.

Now, the not so good news. It seems like the 9th season of Scrubs is official, and Zach Braff & Sarah Chalke are supposedly coming back for 6 episodes to help pass the torch to "Scrubs: The New Class". I love Scrubs, and I've always been on the fence about a 9th season, but the more I think about it the more skeptical I become about it. "My Finale" was the perfect ending to the show, but now that last episode will be cheapened, despite what Bill Lawrence says, thanks to this new season. Sure, this season might be good, but oh how I doubt it. The thing is, I'm probably going to watch regardless.

So, it looks like I'm going to be watching a lot of ABC next season since I really don't have shows I'm dedicated to on CBS or FOX, and only two on NBC (Friday Night Lights and Chuck).
