[via press release from ABC]

ABC ANNOUNCES PREMIERE DATES FOR �MIRACLE WORKERS,� �AMERICAN INVENTOR,� �THE EVIDENCE� AND �WHAT ABOUT BRIAN,� AND AIRDATES FOR A SERIES OF �EXTREME MAKEOVER: HOME EDITION� HURRICANE RECOVERY SPECIALS, PLUS THE RETURN OF �COMMANDER IN CHIEF� AND �SUPERNANNY�

The ABC Television Network today announced premiere dates for alternative series �Miracle Workers� and �American Inventor,� new scripted dramas �The Evidence� and �What About Brian,� four �Extreme Makeover: Home Edition� hurricane recovery specials and the return of �Commander In Chief� and �Supernanny.�

On Monday, March 6, �Supernanny� returns with new episodes (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET), followed by the premiere of �Miracle Workers� (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET), a life-changing series about real people overcoming almost insurmountable odds with the help of an elite team of medical professionals. �Miracle Workers� will air in the time period for four weeks. �Wife Swap� continues to lead off the night (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET). �The Bachelor: Paris� will have completed its run.

On Thursday, March 16, �American Inventor,� an exciting series from Simon Cowell and the producers of �American Idol� about the biggest search ever for America�s best new invention, will premiere with a special two-hour installment from 8:00-10:00 p.m., ET, and will air from 9:00-10:00 p.m., ET, as of Thursday, March 23.

�The Evidence� premieres on Wednesday, March 22 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET). The series revolves around Inspectors Sean Cole (Orlando Jones) and Cayman Bishop (Rob Estes), two long-time partners and best friends in the San Francisco Police Department. In the series, the crucial �evidence� in the case will be presented at the outset of the story. All of the pieces to the puzzle will be known by viewers from the beginning. The question is -- how does it all fit together?

�Invasion� will go on broadcast hiatus to accommodate the run of �The Evidence,� and is slated to return with all original episodes in April.

On Thursday, March 23 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET), preceding the regular time period premiere of �American Inventor,� the network will air the first of four consecutive �Extreme Makeover: Home Edition� specials -- �Extreme Makeover: Home Edition -- After the Storm� -- in which the design team and some very special guests impact the lives of residents of four of the Gulf Coast states hardest hit this past hurricane season � Louisiana, Texas, Florida and Mississippi. The remaining three installments � each focused on a project in a different state � air in this time period over the next three weeks.

�What About Brian,� a contemporary, heartwarming ensemble show about a group of supportive friends in various stages of romantic relationships and friendships living in Los Angeles, will have a special preview on Sunday, April 2 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) � following an original episode of �Desperate Housewives� -- before moving to its regular time period on Monday, April 3 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET).

On Tuesday, April 18 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET), �Commander In Chief,� on which Geena Davis stars in her Golden Globe-winning role as the first female President of the United States, returns to the schedule.
