You just made my day. This is the best new show this season has offered (Brothers and Sisters in 2nd place). I really like the small town feel and it makes for some great tv since every single character is likeable. It really gets you invested. I always thought it was a good bet that it would be picked up since it has a niche audience on Fridays. I hope the post Anatomy spot helps it attract viewers. I do wonder how they will make it work. Unless they re-air the pilot, I doubt many will be able to jump into it.

Does this mean Six Degrees is getting cancelled? I am really starting to like that show. Men in Trees is ok, but it hasn't really hooked me yet.

Good news. My wife will be extremely happy. And the trial timeslot poses no conflicts whatsoever since I dumped ER after the season premiere.

I agree. Six Degrees is one of the few shows I look forward to watching. I think Men In Trees is a good show, but I wouldn't want to lose Six Degrees just so MiT could find a new home.

Best news so far today!

This is my only new show and I'm glad it's getting a great spot too.

Good for Anne Heche who gets dumped on a lot unfairly, I think. She's very good in this.

SIX DEGREES is going on hiatus until the beginning of Febuary, because the show is being retooled (to focus more on certain characters than others) - according to the same article...

Between this, and the news that "IASIP" was renewed, my day has been pretty damned good...

One of the best new shows of the season. It manages to take cliche situations and turn them into some more, all while having some of the more interesting characters (and, ones I actually care about) in any current TV show.

According to the press release I got from ABC, Six Degrees is going to return in January.

ABC announced that the new comedy "notes from the underbelly" will be airing in the post 'Grey's Anatomy' timeslot once 'October Road' finishes its first season. The remaining episodes from 'Men in Trees' are set to air as the beginning of Season 2 (essentially stating that the Season 1 finale has already aired )

that sucks,
i hope the ratings for the show will be good next year, its been off the air for so long some people might forget about the show,
i guess we won't see a season 1 DVD release in the fall. thats bad news.

while i'm happy that Men In Trees gets a season 2, it also sucks that there won't be any more new episodes until the fall. My 2 favorite new shows this year were Men In Trees and Brothers and Sisters (with MIT edging it out as my favorite)..... I really really hope it does well when it comes back.

Grey's Anatomy had 4 or 5 of its first season episodes held over until Season 2. That's why Season 1 was 9 episodes and Season 2 has 27. Boston Legal had 4 episodes from season 1 held over to season 2. It's happened before, and in those cases the season sets reflected whe the shows aired, not when they were made.

This decision shouldn't affect the DVD release at all.

This is all true, but I guess what bugs me is that all these mentioned shows actually got to have Season Finales... and I'm scared that without a season finale, many 'casual' fans (IE people that don't waste time online reading about their tv shows) will think it was canceled or something...
