Extreme Makeover: Home EditionABC has announced premiere dates for alternative series "Miracle Workers" and "American Inventor," new scripted dramas "The Evidence" and "What About Brian," four "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" hurricane recovery specials and the return of "Commander In Chief" and "Supernanny."

On Monday, March 6, "Supernanny" returns with new episodes (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET), followed by the premiere of "Miracle Workers" (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET), a life-changing series about real people overcoming almost insurmountable odds with the help of an elite team of medical professionals. "Miracle Workers" will air in the time period for four weeks. "Wife Swap" continues to lead off the night (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET). "The Bachelor: Paris" will have completed its run.

On Thursday, March 16, "American Inventor," an exciting series from Simon Cowell and the producers of "American Idol" about the biggest search ever for America's best new invention, will premiere with a special two-hour installment from 8:00-10:00 p.m., ET, and will air from 9:00-10:00 p.m., ET, as of Thursday, March 23.

"The Evidence" premieres on Wednesday, March 22 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET). The series revolves around Inspectors Sean Cole (Orlando Jones) and Cayman Bishop (Rob Estes), two long-time partners and best friends in the San Francisco Police Department. In the series, the crucial "evidence" in the case will be presented at the outset of the story. All of the pieces to the puzzle will be known by viewers from the beginning. The question is -- how does it all fit together?

"Invasion" will go on broadcast hiatus to accommodate the run of "The Evidence," and is slated to return with all original episodes in April.

The remaining three installments - each focused on a project in a different state - air in this time period over the next three weeks.

"What About Brian," a contemporary, heartwarming ensemble show about a group of supportive friends in various stages of romantic relationships and friendships living in Los Angeles, will have a special preview on Sunday, April 2 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) - following an original episode of "Desperate Housewives" -- before moving to its regular time period on Monday, April 3 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET).
