ABC Releases Prime Time Schedule And Clips

Like NBC & FOX, ABC cleaned house last week by canceling pretty much every under-performing show that was on their schedule. But today they have released the schedule that will be filling all the gaps. Unlike NBC & FOX there is nothing really eye popping or exciting. However, there were some oddities:

– The new Tim Allen series Last Man Standing will be leading off Tuesday nights at 8pm

The Middle is being pushed to Wednesday lead off at 8pm

Charlie’s Angels will lead off Thursday nights at 8pm

Basically the oddities are that ABC is over-selling their shows. Need I remind everyone about the scheduling disaster that was FlashForward? Fine show, but it was never meant to lead off the night in its first season. And the general rule is you never put a new show as your lead off (even if it is produced by Steven Spielberg, FOX).

But why listen to me when you can look at ABC’s schedule and the clips for yourself:
