ABC Announces Fall 2012 Schedule — Including Roster of Exciting New Shows
ABC released its fall schedule today, May 15, and there are no major surprises. The main shifts: Happy Endings and Don’t Trust the B---- in Apt. 23 have moved to Tuesday, and Revenge has been slipped into the Sunday spot vacated by Desperate Housewives.
But who really cares about those tweaks? We’re looking forward to the network’s new series, which run the gamut from a comedy about a divorced single mom who moves in with her crazy parents to a supernatural drama from Alloy about a high-end piece of Manhattan real estate... that may be possessed.
We love summer and all, but fall can’t come soon enough!
