It's a Friends war: Chandler has pushed Monica off the ABC schedule.
The network announced that the prized post-Modern Family timeslot will be filled by Mr. Sunshine, a new comedy starring Matthew Perry. The show will debut Wednesday, Feb. 9 at 9:30/8:30c, while the Courteney Cox comedy Cougar Town goes on hiatus until April 13.
Off the Map, the Jenna Bans-created and Shonda Rhimes-produced jungle medical drama, will premiere on Jan. 12 and run Wednesdays at 10/9c until April 6. The week after, ABC will then launch a three-hour comedy block.
Wednesday regulars — The Middle, Better With You, Modern Family and Cougar Town, which will return to its regular time period — will remain, followed by the 10/9c debut of Happy Endings, an ensemble comedy starring 24's Elisha Cuthbert and FlashForward's Zach Knighton. "Fan favorite" episodes of Modern Family will air 10:30/9:30c.
Will you miss Cougar Town until its return?
