ABC is sticking with most of its reality TV line-up for the 2018-2019 season. The network has officially renewed The Bachelor, Dancing with the Stars, America's Funniest Home Videos and freshman game show Child Support.

The Bachelor will return for season 23, most likely in early 2019. Arie Luyendyk, Jr. set a pretty low bar for the next Bachelor after his controversial decision to change his mind after the fact during the recent finale. If history is any indication, you can probably look for the next Bachelor on Becca's upcoming season of The Bachelorette.

Dancing with the Stars
will be back for season 27. The show is trying something different for season 26 with an abbreviated four-week season comprised entirely of athletes, premiering Monday, April 30 at 8/7c. Season 27 will likely air in the Fall as usual, presumably back to the regular format.

The network has also picked up America's Funniest Home Videos, now hosted by Alfonso Ribeiro, for season 29. And finally, ABC has given a second season to the game show Child Support, with Fred Savage and Ricky Gervais.

This quartet joins the previously renewed Shark Tank for ABC's reality/alternative line-up for the 2018-2019 TV season.
