ABC ANNOUNCES POST-FOOTBALL MONDAY NIGHT LINEUP, TO BEGIN MONDAY, JANUARY 9

�Emily�s Reasons Why Not� and �Jake in Progress� Air Back to Back from 9:00-10:00 p.m., ET

�The Bachelor� Returns at 10:00 p.m., ET

Monday Night Hit �Wife Swap� Remains Mondays at 8:00 p.m., ET

The ABC Television Network has announced its post-football Monday night lineup, scheduled as of January 9: �Wife Swap,� �Emily�s Reasons Why Not,� �Jake in Progress� and �The Bachelor.�

�Wife Swap� will air from 8:00-9:00 p.m., ET. Each week, two families with very different values are chosen to take part in a two-week challenge in which the wives from these two families exchange husbands, children and lives (but not bedrooms) to discover what it�s like to live a very different woman�s life. It�s a mind-blowing experiment that often ends up changing lives forever. Currently �Wife Swap� ranks second in its time period among Adults 18-34 (2.5/8), while ranking No. 1 among its core audience of Women 18-34 (3.3/10). �Wife Swap� has greatly improved the time period for ABC, boosting the Net�s delivery by 2.8 million viewers (7.6 million vs. 4.8 million) and by 81% in Adults 18-49 (2.8/8 vs. 1.6/5). �Wife Swap� is ABC�s highest-rated program to be teamed with �Monday Night Football� in 4 years � since 2001. It is an RDF Media production, created by Stephen Lambert and executive-produced by Lambert and Jenny Crowther of RDF Media (�Faking It� and �Junkyard Wars�) and Michael Davies of Diplomatic (�Who Wants to be a Millionaire�). Wendy Roth is co-executive producer.

From 9:00-9:30 p.m., ET, �Emily�s Reasons Why Not� will explore the world of Emily Sanders (Heather Graham). She�s young, single, has terrific friends and a great job in publishing. In fact, she�s got the hottest selling book in town. Unfortunately she�s just closed the chapter on her relationship with the roguishly handsome, two-timing author. Determined now to make better choices, Emily employs a �Reasons Why Not� list-making system designed to serve as an internal warning on when it�s time to cut bait and move on. The �Reasons� will not only guide her in matters of love, but life in general. And if that fails her, best friends Reilly and Josh never do. �Emily�s Reasons Why Not,� which is based on the novel by Carrie Gerlach, is produced by Pariah in association with Sony Pictures Television. Gavin Polone, Emily Kapnek and Vivian Cannon are executive producers.

From 9:30-10:00 p.m., ET, John Stamos returns in �Jake in Progress,� a fast-paced comedy that follows New York publicist Jake (John Stamos) and his friends as they juggle life, love and commitment. This season Jake�s former fianc�e, Annie (Charlotte Ross), is unexpectedly back on the scene, and Jake gives settling down some serious thought (even though she�s engaged to someone else). Best pal Adrian (Ian Gomez) offers advice from a married guy�s POV. There�s a new guy in town when Mark (Dondre Whitfield), Jake and Adrian�s college buddy, moves back. A former tennis pro and recently divorced, Mark is looking for some guidance as he re-enters the social scene (even though Jake is thinking of retiring from the game). Meanwhile, Naomi (Wendie Malick) embraces late-in-life motherhood as only she can, and Patrick (Rick Hoffman) leaves performance art behind for a steady gig running a bakery. Jeff Greenstein, Austin Winsberg, Peter Traugott and Bob Kushell are executive producers of the series, from Brad Grey Television Productions in association with Twentieth Century Fox Television.

From 10:00-11:00 p.m., ET, the original relationship show that is purely about the search for love, �The Bachelor,� returns with an edition currently being shot in the world�s most romantic city -- Paris, France. The new bachelor has yet to be announced, but he�s a sexy Southerner who�s serious about finding the love of his life. Maybe everything your mother ever said about �a nice doctor� is true. The series will run for eight weeks. Hosted by Chris Harrison, �The Bachelor� is produced by Next Entertainment in association with Telepictures Productions. Mike Fleiss (�High School Reunion�) is executive producer. Lisa Levenson and David Bohnert are co-executive producers.
