Cashmere Mafia,” “Notes from the Underbelly” and “October Road” will premiere after “Dancing with the Stars” and “The Bachelor” conclude their fall seasons.

Here’s the full press release. …

I think it’s unbelievable that they’re making a sitcom about the cavemen from the Geico commercials. I’d like that to be on the record. …

I also don’t have high hopes for another Christina Applegate sitcom in Sam I Am. Perhaps Gilmore girls alum Melissa McCarthy will at least bring this show some good energy. …

There are a lot of familiar faces on the ABC schedule this fall. Michael Vartan, Dylan McDermott, Christopher Titus and Joshua Malina are the new Big Shots following Grey’s Anatomy. … Lucy Liu heads up Darren Star’s new midseason entry Cashmere Mafia. … Peter Krause, Donald Sutherland and William Baldwin head the cast of Greg Berlanti’s Dirty Sexy Money (a terrible name for a show, if you ask me, but what else is new). … Victor Garber and Loretta Devine have supporting roles in Eli Stone. … And you can’t turn around without running into a familiar face on the Grey’s spinoff Private Practice, which boasts Tim Daly, Taye Diggs and Amy Brennemen along with Kate Walsh’s Addison and others on a California beachfront.

ABC’s lineup, like NBC’s, is heavily reliant on dramas. But there’s an interesting mix of returning faces on the comedy slate as well, including Faith Ford, Jerry O’Connell and Jonathan Sadowski.

Tomorrow: CBS.
