Shortly after handing out renewals to seven scripted series, including freshman Revenge, Once Upon a Time and Suburgatory, ABC has handed out renewals for three reality shows: Dancing With the Stars, Shark Tank and The Bachelor.

Dancing With the Stars, which has seen dips in total viewers and the adults 18-49 demo, has hit series lows during its current 14th cycle but recently topped all other network broadcasts for the week in total viewers. It remains to be seen whether it will offer two cycles during the 2012-13 season, one airing in the fall and the other in the spring, but that has become tradition. As the series has aged, there also have been rumors of an "all-star" season of former castmembers planned for the next run.

Shark Tank, the entrepreneurial competition currently in its third season, has seen success on Friday nights, regularly tops all network broadcasts among adults 18-49 at the 8 p.m. hour. It will get a full 22 episodes for its fourth season.

The Bachelor renewal brings the series into its 17th season. Although hardly the juggernaut it once was, the long-running dating show still manages to draw a 2.9 rating in the all-important 18-49 demo. Arguably more impressive is the franchise's ability to remain part of the water-cooler conversation, regularly filling the celebrity weeklies and entertainment magazine shows.

Unscripted fare for which ABC has yet to make an announcement includes The Bachelorette, Wipeout and veteran America's Funniest Home Videos.
