ABC’s Announces its 2009-2010 Schedule

May 19, 2009 by  

ABC just announced it’s schedule the for the upcoming 2009-2010 TV season. The network has unveiled a number of new shows a few line-up changes that might surprise you.

The big renewal news was leaked last week – “Castle”, “Better off Ted” and “Scrubs” will be back. Much to the surprise of many, ABC canceled “Samantha Who?”, probably after it’s poor showing this season when it filled in during the break of “Ugly Betty”. Speaking of, the Emmy award winning comedy was moved out of its coveted Thursday night spot and moved to Fridays.  That was a bit of a shocker. No mention of “Lost”, but since that show doesn’t come back until 2010 I’m not worried.  “Lost” will most likely be back in its Wednesday at 10pm timeslot.

Because of the heavy cross promotion, I expected to see “Flash Forward” on Wednesdays paired with “Lost”, but ABC put it together with “Grey’s Anatomy” on Thursdays.  Looks like they are putting the push on winning Thursday nights.

Check back throughout the day for more on each of the new ABC shows unveiled today.  And let me know what YOU think of ABC’s new schedule.  Seeing any schedule conflicts yet?

    I’m so sad about Samantha Who? I just adore Christina Applegate and Melissa McCarthy. 🙁

    Every year it seems ABC ticks me off even more!! I loved What about Brian, they yanked it, Pushing Daisies was my absolute favorite show ever! and they pulled the plug on it and now they have taken away Samantha Who as well! I don’t remember for sure if it was on ABC when it aired, but I think it was, does anyone remember “Maybe It’s Me”? That was a fav of mine as well and it got canceled rather quickly. I guess I just have weird taste in TV or something because lots of my favorites seem to get yanked. 🙁

    I’m kind of happy they moved Ugly Betty as it makes Thursdays easier for me (and my DVR) and Fridays stink until FNL comes on.
