ABC has renewed the alien-invasion drama "V," which had been considered on the bubble because of borderline ratings, reports The Hollywood Reporter’s The Live Feed blog.
The network has also picked up six pilots for its next season, THR reports.
On the drama side, they include Jerry Bruckheimer’s "The Whole Truth," a legal procedural, and two dramadies, "My Generation," about a group of former high school classmates, and "Detroit 187," a cop show starring Michael Imperioli of "The Sopranos." Three comedies were also given the nod. They are "Mr. Sunshine," starring Matthew Perry of "Friends" as a sports manager; "Happy Endings" starring Elisha Cuthbert about friends trying to find romance; and "Better Together," about two couples.
In cancellation news, EW.com’s The Ausiello Files reports that ABC has cancelled "Better Off Ted," "Scrubs" and "FlashForward." The freshman comedy "Romantically Challenged" starring Alyssa Milano has also been canceled.
