Disney's US broadcast network ABC has given Alias, Boston Legal, Desperate Housewives and Lost early pick-ups for the 2005-06 season.
Desperate Housewives helped ABC to get out of a slump in the ratings. As had been reported a few days ago by Indiantelevision.com Buena Vista Television International which distributes Disney's content is counting on Desperate Housewives to attract Indian viewers.
On an average, Desperate Housewives is bringing ABC 180 per cent more total viewers and 194 per cent more adults in the 18-49 age group to the time period than at the same point a year ago.
