ABC midseason schedule: Life on Mars also gone?


Recommended Posts

ABC has shored up its midseason schedule, setting time periods for newcomers "The Goode Family" and "The Unusuals."

Both series will be featured on the network's Wednesday schedule, which has "Scrubs" at 8:00/7:00c, "Goode" at 8:30/7:30c, "Lost" at 9:00/8:00c and "Unusuals" at 10:00/9:00c.

The moves, along with its complete midseason lineup, were released this afternoon on ABCStagePass.com, the network's advertising sales portal.


Premiere dates for the entire schedule - detailed below - will presumably be announced next week.


8:00/7:00c - "The Bachelor" (New Season)

9:30/8:30c - "Samantha Who?"

10:00/9:00c - "True Beauty" (New Series)


8:00/7:00c - "Border Security USA" (New Series)

9:00/8:00c - "According to Jim" (New Season)

9:30/8:30c - "According to Jim" (New Season)

10:00/9:00c - "Eli Stone"


8:00/7:00c - "Scrubs" (New Season)

8:30/7:30c - "The Goode Family" (New Series)

9:00/8:00c - "Lost" (New Season)

10:00/9:00c - "The Unusuals" (New Series)


8:00/7:00c - "Ugly Betty"

9:00/8:00c - "Grey's Anatomy"

10:00/9:00c - "Private Practice" (New Time Slot)


8:00/7:00c - "Wife Swap"

9:00/8:00c - "Supernanny"

10:00/9:00c - "20/20"


8:00/7:00c - "Saturday Night Movie"


7:00/6:00c - "America's Funniest Home Videos"

8:00/7:00c - "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition"

9:00/8:00c - "Desperate Housewives"

10:00/9:00c - "Brothers & Sisters"

The aforementioned lineup mirrors the schedule that began floating around earlier this week (read the story), save for Wednesday and Friday nights.

That schedule had a full hour of "Scrubs" at 8:00/7:00c on Wednesdays with "Life on Mars" in the 10:00/9:00c slot. Said lineup is certainly still a possibility should "Goode" and "Unusuals" not roll out until February or March.

Current Wednesday occupants "Pushing Daisies" and "Dirty Sexy Money" presumably will be capped at 13 episodes, but remain under consideration for next season.

And lastly, "Here Comes the Newlyweds" - previously targeted for Friday nights - will stay on the bench for now.
