    ABC's 'Rules,' 'Bonnie' go distance

    From The Hollywood Reporter:

    ABC's "8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter" and "Life With Bonnie" became the first rookie series of the fall 2002 batch to receive a full-season pickup. ABC has ordered nine additional episodes of the comedies from Touchstone Television, which have performed solidly for the network in their first three Tuesday night outings.

    "These are two shows that are in great shape creatively, and they've performed even better than we expected, so they earned their back nine," ABC entertainment president Susan Lyne said.

    ABC is facing serious challenges this fall, battling a ratings slump and launching a schedule dominated by new shows to fill the void left by the departure of "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" and such veterans as "Dharma & Greg" and "Spin City." (Nellie Andreeva)

    I watched both this week and they were both pretty good.
    Not uproariously funny but certinly had a few laughs and weren't annoying.

    I just have to say, if this is "the best of the rookie series", we're in deeeep trouble this season.

    I like Fastlane, personally. Other than that, no rookie series has really grabbed me.

    Hmmm, I imagine 8 Rules would get a good teen following.
    I thought both were ok but it's not like I would care if I missed them one night.
