Following Grey's Anatomy on Thursday, are two new comedies starting at 8 pm. Big Day, which takes a look at a couple's wedding day from the view point of those involved, and Notes From The Underbelly, about a couple expecting their first baby. At 10 pm J.J.Abrams drama, Six Degrees will be telecast, which focuses on six different New Yorkers whose lives are somehow interconnected.

On Fridays, Betty The Ugly, set at a fashion magazine, is an adaptation of a telenovela starring America Ferrera and Eric Mabius, with executive producer Salma Hayek. While, Alaska-set comedy Men In Trees follows at 9 and the newsmagazine 20/20 will air at 10 pm.

Saturday nights will broadcast the national security thriller Traveler, followed by Greg Behrendt's Wake-Up Call, an unscripted series that offers relationship advice and the hidden-camera half- hour series Just For Laughs.

Finally on Sunday nights, America's Funniest Home Videos, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition and Desperate Housewives are joined by a new drama, Brothers And Sisters, a family soap, starring Calista Flockhart and Ron Rifkin.
