When I open the Bridge CS4 pointing to a folder with MTS file (AVCHD), there are no thumbnails of the video nor a Preview of the current selection. Is this a bug? Is there a Browser/Organizer for MTS files?

Most likely bridge doesn't support those files. Bridge doesn't preview certain every type of file premiere supports. Only the most common ones and not any tapeless formats. That's the main reason Premiere has Media Browser so you can see the thumbnails and the previews.
still, for After Effects users would be pretty handy a MTS previewer plugin for Bridge.
I recently got back from a shooting. There are roughly 500 MTS files.
I need one of them to edit in AE. Guess the only way is to first open Premere Pro, then preview the thumbnails, then create a dynamic link to AE, and finally close Premiere Pro... not very quick, though, also because to open Premiere Pro I need to create a project, then remove it :(
