It's that time of the year when networks start sharing their fancy new fall lineups! While scheduling isn't particularly juicy, it is a great indicator of how much faith a network has in certain shows depending on where they fall in the lineup. As ABC's schedule shifts to integrate exciting new projects, we've got you covered on when to catch your favorite and soon-to-be favorite shows.
With Scandal's recent end, TGIT is getting an extremely minor shakeup this fall. The long-running Shondaland drama Grey's Anatomy is keeping its 8/7c time slot on Thursdays, with the firehouse spin-off Station 19 getting promoted from midseason to fall to take Scandal's 9/8c slot. These will be followed by How to Get Away with Murder at 10/9c. This fall will mark the first time Grey's, Station 19 and Murder air back-to-back-to-back, given that Station 19 didn't debut until after Murder wrapped up its fourth season. It also provides for a convenient back-to-back format for any and all crossovers between Grey's and Station 19. ABC's other Shonda Rhimes series, For the People, is again being held until midseason.
Following the success of Dancing with the Stars: Athletes, the network is doubling down on the franchise, airing two iterations of Dancing with the Stars this fall. The flagship series will continue to anchor Mondays at 8/7c and the long-awaited Dancing with the Stars: Juniors, which has been pre-taped rather than recorded live, will air Sundays at 8/7c.
And after shifting last year to have genre fare on Fridays, ABC is returning to a Friday night comedy block for the 2018-2019 season. Fresh Off the Boat is moving to 8/7c on Fridays, followed by Speechless at 8:30/7:30c.
