LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- ABC is close to finalizing its summer schedule, which will include new seasons of mainstays "The Bachelorette" and "Wipeout" as well as newly announced fare like the talent competition "Duets."
To that end, we've learned that "Expedition Impossible," "Karaoke Battle USA," "101 Ways to Leave a Game Show" and "Take the Money and Run" won't be among this summer's returning class. Said moves were confirmed by their respective spokespersons this afternoon.
That leaves "Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition" as ABC's only freshman series from last summer to land a second season.
Also due back: Canadian import "Rookie Blue," which is entering its third season; "Bachelor Pad," which likewise is back for season three; and presumably "Secret Millionaire," which was previously targeted for midseason.
