ABC Renews 'Grey's Anatomy,' 'Modern Family,' 'Castle' and Three More

Grey's AnatomyABC is giving six of its shows an early vote of confidence: The network announced at its TCA press conference this morning that several of its veteran series will be back next season.

Among the series getting early renewals are 'Grey's Anatomy' (TV's No. 1 drama) and sister series 'Private Practice,' which will return for their eighth and fifth seasons, respectively, while 'Castle' gets a fourth.

The network also picked up three of its half-hour Wednesday night comedies for third seasons: 'Modern Family' (TV's No. 1 comedy), 'Cougar Town' and 'The Middle.' Missing from that bunch: the struggling freshman series 'Better With You.'

Also absent from the list? 'Detroit 1-8-7,' along with ABC's Sunday night dramas 'Desperate Housewives' and 'Brothers & Sisters.' But don't worry too much, Deadline implores -- though the network gave early renewals to its three comedies at the same time last year and to 'Castle' in March, it didn't officially pick up the rest of its slate until upfronts in May.

Tell us: Are you surprised ABC renewed so many shows so early in the year? What other shows should get an early pickup?

Grey's Anatomy IS NOT tv's #1 drama. that honor belongs to the hunks of NCIS! they average over 18million viewers a week.I love Grey's but they don't get close to that number!

I love the comedy block on Wednesday, and that includes Better With You.
