ROB LOWE EXTENDS HIS GUEST STARRING ROLE ON ABC�S HIT DRAMA �BROTHERS & SISTERS�

Rob Lowe (�The West Wing�) extends his role on the ABC Television Network�s �Brothers & Sisters� as a special guest star through the show�s freshman season. Lowe plays conservative Senator Robert McCallister, with whom Kitty Walker has recently formed an unorthodox professional and potentially romantic relationship. The series returns to the ABC Television Network with original episodes this SUNDAY, JANUARY 7 (10:01-11:00 p.m., ET).

The Emmy nominated Lowe played Sam Seaborn in NBC�s award-winning drama series, �The West Wing.� He most recently starred in the hit satire �Thank You for Smoking� and the upcoming thriller, �Stir of Echoes: The Homecoming.� He made his feature film debut in Francis Ford Coppola�s �The Outsiders,� and later went on to star in such other popular dramas as �St. Elmo�s Fire,� �About Last Night� and �Bad Influence,� as well as in the blockbuster comedies �Wayne�s World,� �Tommy Boy� and �Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me,� among many others. His other television credits include �A Perfect Day,� �Beach Girls,� �Salem�s Lot,� �The Christmas Shoes� and �The Stand,� and he produced the series �The Lyon�s Den� and �Dr. Vegas.�

During Sunday�s 10 o'clock hour, �Brothers & Sisters� leads its veteran CBS drama competition (�Without a Trace�/�Cold Case�) across the adult demographics (AD18-34/AD18-49/AD25-54). The new ABC drama dominates the 10 o�clock hour across each of the women demographics, beating NBC�s NFL coverage. �Brothers & Sisters� is the second-highest rated new TV series this season among Adults 18-49 and the top new program on any night during the 10 o�clock hour in the key young adult sales demo. It�s the No. 1 new television series this season with Women 18-49 and Women 25-54. �Brothers & Sisters� ranks among the Top 5 highest-rated TV series with high income Adults 18-49 ($100K+ annual income) and stands as this season's No. 1 new series in the top Nielsen upscale category.
