ABC has finally revealed their fall premiere dates. While we watched the other networks announced their start dates over the past couple of weeks, ABC took a little bit longer as they made their decisions. Next we just have to wait and see if any of the big five react to the other’s and make some changes in the lead up to their premiere weeks.
For the alphabet, they made several big changes from year’s past. Shonda Rhimes has owned Thursday nights but this year the Shondaland series were broken up. With Scandal moving to midseason, new series Notorious fills in the 9PM spot, bookended by Grey’s Anatomy and How To Get Away With Murder. Meanwhile, highly anticipated Designated Survivor launches on Wednesdays on September 21 at 10PM with new comedy Speechless slipping into the night’s earlier comedy block at 830 between The Goldbergs and Modern Family.
ABC’s premieres kick off with Dancing With The Stars on September 12, followed by the 68th Emmy Awards the following Sunday.
