Desperate Housewives has had a hard time capturing the magic that won over America when it first premiered. Each season the show has tinkered with its formula, adding new characters to try to return to its early glory. Season 4 finds yet another new family heading to Wisteria Lane, adding Emy winner Dana Delaney and cult favorite Nathan Fillion (Firefly) to the cast.

In addition, the returning desperate housewives all find themselves in new situations. Lynette (Felicity Huffman) is recuperating from her cancer treatment. Susan (Teri Hatcher) will get used to married life with Mike (James Denton). Gabrielle (Eva Longoria) is stuck in a loveless marriage with the mayor (John Slattery). Bree (Marcia Cross) is back and faking a pregnancy to cover the actual pregnancy of her teenage daughter. And, as many remember from the final scene in May's finale, Edie hanged herself.

The addition of two new families (there's also a gay couple moving in) may be just what Desperate Housewives needs to restore its water cooler buzz.
