‘Welcome’ wagon rolls Sundays on ABC

'Neighborhood,' 'Brat Camp' to join Alphabet line-up

HOLLYWOOD — ABC has locked in premiere dates for two summer reality skeins, while NBC has ordered up more episodes of summer variety skein “Hit Me Baby One More Time.”

Starting July 10, Alphabet’s previously announced “Welcome to the Neighborhood” will get the primo 9 p.m. Sunday timeslot normally occupied by “Desperate Housewives.” To help launch the skein, ABC has dug up an original two-hour episode of its hit Sunday skein “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” and will air the seg as a lead-in to the “Welcome” premiere.

Repeats of “DH” will move to 10 p.m. Sundays for the summer.

Three days after “Neighborhood” opens, ABC will debut troubled teen skein “Brat Camp.” Back-to-back episodes will air 8-10 p.m. Wednesday, July 13; the next week, skein moves into its regular 9 p.m. slot.

“Dancing With the Stars,” which now airs at 9 on Wednesdays, is scheduled to have ended its run by then.

Over at NBC, the net confirmed Friday that it has upped its initial three-episode order for “Hit Me Baby.” Five segs of the Granada America skein are now scheduled to be produced, though it’s possible NBC could add even more episodes to the order.

And finally, Fox Friday became the first net to announce a premiere date for one of its fall skeins. “Prison Break” will debut Monday, Aug. 29.
