More Time To Practice

Also at the critics meeting, ABC announced that it has signed a deal with producer David E. Kelley to keep The Practice on the network until at least the 2003-2004 season.

It also announced numerous plans to lure a younger audience, including airing a revival of Making the Band on Fridays and bringing aboard three sitcoms in March: My Wife and Kids starring Damon Wayans, The Job starring Denis Leary and an untitled comedy starring Joan Cusack.
