ABC has announced fall premiere dates for the 2016-2017 slate.

This year’s fall schedule sees a major change from ABC’s seasons past with the elimination of the Thursday night “TGIT” block, as “Scandal” Season 6 has been pushed to midseason. In place of the Kerry Washington hit is new legal drama “Notorious,” which will air in the 9 p.m. slot in between Shondaland’s medical graybeard “Grey’s Anatomy” staying at 8 p.m. and the Viola Davis Emmy-winning drama “How To Get Away with Murder” still at 10 p.m.

ABC’s fall schedule also features “Designated Survivor” on Wednesday nights, marking Kiefer Sutherland’s hotly anticipated return to TV.

Here is ABC’s full fall lineup (new series are in bold):

 

Monday, September 12

8:00-10:00 p.m.                      “Dancing with the Stars” (Season 23 premiere)

 

Sunday, September 18

7:00-8:00 p.m.                         “68th Emmy Awards Arrival Pre-Show” (live from Los Angeles)

8:00-11:00 p.m.                       “68th Emmy Awards” (live from Los Angeles)

    WHY DID THE CANCEL CASTLE ON MONDAY 10PM

  2. Rene says:

    Well, I am personally looking forward to Designated Survivor and will probably give Time After Time a look mid-season.

  3. Joseph Zee says:

    Who cares,…..mostly garbage….

  4. Juice says:

    ABC, except for maybe two shows, is pure and utter trash. To renew complete bullshit like “The Real O’Neals” shows they are pushing the Disney agenda. Seems like they would have learned something from the ESPN dismantling and mass exodus, bit…no.

    Looks like I won’t be watching ABC – again.
