ABC’s New Schedule Moves ‘Revenge’ to Sundays, Comedy to Tuesday
With all of their new shows announced and releasing photos and footage by the minute, it’s up to ABC to fill out their schedule for the fall, and make some interesting decisions regarding placement. For instance, who’s going to take the big slot on Sunday nights, now that ‘Desperate Housewives‘ has concluded its eight year-run? And which new shows get cherry placement?
ABC has decided to give premium placement to its hit freshman drama ‘Revenge‘ bumping up its second season from the previous Wednesday at 10 slot into the powerhouse Sunday 9:00 p.m. previously owned by ‘Desperate Housewives.’ Far from the only changes however, previously thought to be on-the-bubble comedy ‘Happy Endings’ will move to form a Tuesday comedy block with ABC’s moderately successful freshman comedy ‘Don’t Trust the B in Apartment 23.’
On the newer side of ABC shows, country music drama (and host of the lovely Connie Britton) ‘Nashville‘ will occupy ‘Revenge’s old Wednesday slot, while the Andre Braugher-headed naval drama ‘Last Resort‘ will make its port of harbor the prime Thursday 8:00 p.m. slot.
Elsewhere, ‘Body of Proof,’ ‘Wife Swap,’ new dramas ‘Mistresses,’ ‘Red Widow,’ ‘Zero Hour,’ and comedies ‘How To Live With Your Parents for the Rest of Your Life’ and ‘The Family Tools’ are all being held for mid-season.
