ABC Announces New 2011 TV Season Schedule; Night-by-Night Breakdown

ABC has given the green light to the most new shows of any network this season. They have 13 new shows (5 comedies and 8 dramas) this season. Seven of those shows can be seen in the Fall. You wouldn’t think that ABC would have that many holes to fill, but when you look at the recent cancellations, you can see that they need new hits shows everywhere. Here is a look at their new schedule:


*New programs in UPPER CASE; all times ET

8-10 p.m. – Dancing with the Stars Performance Show

10-11 p.m. – Castle

8-8:30 p.m. – LAST MAN STANDING
8:30-9 p.m. – MAN UP

9-10 p.m. – Dancing with the Stars Results Show
10-11 p.m. – Body of Proof


8-8:30 p.m. –- The Middle

9-9:30 p.m. — Modern Family
9:30-10 p.m. — Happy Endings
10-11 p.m. — REVENGE


9-10 p.m. – Grey’s Anatomy

10-11 p.m. – Private Practice

8-9 p.m. – Extreme Makeover: Home Edition
9-10 p.m. – Shark Tank
10-11 p.m. – 20/20

8 p.m. — Saturday Night College Football

7- 8 p.m. — America’s Funniest Home Videos
8-9 p.m. — ONCE UPON A TIME
9-10 p.m. — Desperate Housevies
10-11 p.m. — PAN AM 

Of course, this lineup doesn’t include any of the mid-season shows. This includes, Cougar Town, which won’t come back until December after Dancing with the Stars finishes its Fall run and before it starts its Spring run in March. It will anchor a new Tuesday night comedy block at 9 p.m. Eastern time with two new comedies leading into it and another new comedy, Apartment 23 following after it. Five other new shows will likely find a place on the schedule later in the year or early next year as well.

Don’t be expecting V, Brothers & Sisters, No Ordinary Family, Off the Map, Detroit 187 or Mr. Sunshine to be on ABC, though, because they have ALL been cancelled!
