More Dancing with the Stars & The Bachelor for ABC


ABC in the U.S. has picked up new seasons of four hit series, including Dancing with the Stars, The Bachelor and America’s Funniest Home Videos.

Dancing with the Stars, hosted by Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews, will return to the network for its 27th season. The iconic dating show The Bachelor, hosted by Chris Harrison, was renewed for its 23rd season. Additionally, ABC ordered a 29th season of the longest-running prime-time entertainment series in its history, America’s Funniest Home Videos. The show is presented by Alfonso Ribeiro.

The network also commissioned a sophomore season of the studio-based series Child Support from Ricky Gervais and Banijay Studios North America. The series, hosted by Fred Savage, challenges contestants to correctly answer ten questions. If a contestant gives the incorrect answer, he or she has the chance to be saved by five kids who are asked the same question by Gervais.
