ABC Fall Schedule


It was ABC’s turn to reveal its schedule ahead of its upfront this afternoon in New York City. With it, they unveiled over 13 news that will premiere in the Fall and midseason. Among them, the high-profile action series ‘Charlie’s Angels’ and the new comedy from Tim Allen, now titled ‘Last Man Standing,’ and will air on Thursday and Tuesday nights, respectively. Right after the Tim Allen comedy will premiere another laffer, ‘Man Up,’ confirming what many have predicted to happen: A second ABC Comedy block. Two new shows will premiere on Wednesday nights, one right before ‘Modern Family,’ (Suburgatory) and a drama right after Happy Endings(Revenge.) But wait, what happened to Cougar Town? ABC has actually held the Courtney Cox comedy until the midseason, premiering after ‘Dancing With the Stars’ ends next year. Usually, midseason shows don’t get full season pickups, but ‘Town’ was picked up for a full 22-episode season, so CT fans rejoice! Only one change has come to Fridays, with Extreme Makeover: Home Edition being moved from Sunday nights to Friday nights, and Saturday nights are filled with College football. Finally, a big change to Sundays, with 2 new dramas being added to save the troubled night, with veteran drama ‘Desperate Housewives’ aging with every passing season. Fantasy drama ‘Once Upon A Time’ airs at 8 on Sundays, and drama/thriller ‘Pan Am’ will air right after ‘Housewives’ at 10 PM.

Just as I’ve done on my other schedule posts, here’s how the Fall schedule will look like on your TV listings, from Entertainment Weekly.

Holiday-Themed Shows Airing This Week


With many shows starting their Midseason hiatus either this week or next week, primetime shows are airing their Christmas-themed episodes. I know for a fact that Glee is doing a Christmas-themed episode tonight, which will probably have many songs from their newest album respectfully named, The Christmas Album, that was released back in November. ABC aired their Merry Christmas Charlie Brown special last night, and will do so again on Christmas Day. Tonight, ABC is airing Christmas episodes of The Middle and Better With You. Modern Family is oddly not having a Christmas episode this year, but had an amazing one last year. Cougar Town is also doing the same. Nickelodeon will be airing their early instant classic, Merry Christmas Drake & Josh, which was a huge hit when it aired back in 2007, with over 10 million viewers watching on Christmas Eve that year. NBC is aired a christmas themed episode of Minute To Win It. Today NBC isn’t airing any holiday themed programming as a new episode of The Sing-Off and a repeat of Law & Order: SVU will fill-in the night. Fox, CBS, and the CW are following suit with no christmas programming tonight. I’ll be updating you guys daily on which shows will have holiday themed episodes, including small decals of Christmas shows that are airing tonight on tomorrow’s post, so stay tuned!
