Desperate Housewives Renewed to 2013

Soap come drama come occasional bitch fest Desperate Housewives will be back next year, and every year until 2013, which a spy tells us is the year the guarantee on Eva Longoria’s plastic surgery runs out.

The show has rated well this year despite tired cast and poor story line, but perhaps overplayed escapism is hot this recession, how else could you explain another 5 years of overpaid acting.

Desperate Housewives first hit ABC in 2004 and stars Teri Hatcher as Susan Mayer, Felicity Huffman as Lynette Scavo, Marcia Cross as Bree Hodge, Eva Longoria Parker as Gabrielle Solis, Nicollette Sheridan as Edie Britt and, from season four onwards, Dana Delany as Katherine Mayfair. Brenda Strong narrates the show as the deceased Mary Alice Young.
